Overview of current tier standings and how they've changed in SSF4 AE v2012, tiers icon added to EventHubs

Tier lists are an ever changing rating system for fighting games. Perceptions of characters are constantly altered — even when there characters themselves remain the same in what they're capable of.

Last month we offered a preliminary look at how the numbers were shaping up, but we've received a considerable amount more votes since that time and some of the placings and overall opinions have changed.

As such, we've broken down the list into a table, showing the current scores (47,000+ votes) compared with last month's scores (29.000+ votes), along with columns showing how much they've changed.

Also, we've added a new tiers icon to the very top of the website, so it's a little easier to find the tiers section going forward, although it still only links to the SSF4 AE v2012 portion.

Tournament results database, player profiles and ratings, match logs and more - EventHubs Tournament & Player Database coming in the future

Today we're taking a bit of a different approach, and instead of announcing a project when we're almost ready for beta testing, we're talking about it during it's very early development phase.

We've been planning a tournament and player database since the early days of EventHubs, but we've finally built enough pieces of the puzzle to make it a reality, and we're pleased to announce that this project is in development now.

Here's what you can expect in the future.

• Profile pages for all of the major players in the FGC.
• Ratings for all players, for all tournament fighting games.
• A breakdown of accomplishments.
• Player vs. history. E.g. you can look up what Justin Wong's record is against Daigo, or anyone else in the database.
• Overall win/loss records.
• Win/loss records when using various characters.
• Character usage breakdowns, by player.
• More we'll be announcing in the future.

The reason we're announcing this now is to try and get our readers involved in the process, as your feedback, even on coming up with the name of the new area could be very helpful.

Character tier listing results for Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition v2012 - EventHubs beta update

We've made some heavy additions to our beta test of the Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition v2012 tiers section here on EventHubs.

Now you will find compiled results for all of the game's 39 cast members, which includes a character-by-character breakdown of how all of their match ups were voted.

Keep in mind, this is based on a weighted scoring system to eliminate troll votes from the equation. So far over 36,000 votes have been cast, and that number is growing daily.

We've also went a bit further and instead of just displaying a traditional match up chart, you'll find all of the matches have been separated from best to worst, including how many times they were voted for — and you can easily compare how you voted with how the weighted scores turned out.
