Why did T. Hawk drop in the rankings? Major additions to tiers help answer that question and more

Posted by Jonathan 'Catalyst' Grey • April 13, 2014 at 9:04 p.m. PDT

We've just launched some major additions to our tiers here on EventHubs.

The first thing you'll notice right off is we now list the top 10 gains and losses for all of the games currently in our tiers, which are SSF4 AE v2012 and BlazBlue CP.

One of the biggest new features is now you can track how every single match up in every game has changed — or is currently changing.

So if you see that T. Hawk has dropped several points in our rankings, you can click through to find out why.

Our tier listings are now updated every hour, so if a character gets hot in a tournament, you'll be able to chart their rise (or fall) and see which match ups they're gaining or losing ground in.

Hit the jump to continue reading.

As only having two games is a bit limited, if all goes to plan, we'll be launching a third game tomorrow (Monday).

Also, since we're nearing the end of develop on this section, future games will be coming once every 3 or so days — until we've launched tiers for all of the major tournament games in the FGC.

We've also made numerous speed improvements to these sections, so navigation should be faster than ever before.

We've got a few more minor announcements to make for tiers before we move on to our next major project, so stay tuned and enjoy.

Big shout outs to TheUncharted for his excellent and thorough work on this feature. If you enjoy this stuff, make sure you let him know in the comments below.
