Tiers section launched for BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma - see results, vote and discuss match ups

Posted by Jonathan 'Catalyst' Grey • March 25, 2014 at 4:51 p.m. PDT

We're very happy to announce we've launched our second tiers section here on EventHubs, for BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma.

This creates a stomping ground for the community to discuss and vote in all of the match ups in the game.

You'll be able to see the early thoughts of the community on how the matches shake out and overall character power too.

We'll still be rolling out a number of improvements to the tiers section in the near future, including a completely revised index page, but we wanted to get this tool in the hands of the community on launch day so they have it available to start collecting information.

Tiers FAQ for BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma


Q: Why are you launching the tier list this early? Fighting games change a lot over time!
A: We want to track how people perceive the game in its current state. When the new balance patch is released for BBCP, we'll archive the current tier list for this game, preserving it forever, and reset the tier listings so people can vote again. We'll be doing this with most games, that either receive balance patches, or that have heavily evolved after their initial release.

Q: How often will you be resetting/archiving tier lists?
A: Whenever a major balance patch or upgrade is released. We'll occasionally poll the community to get their thoughts on if a game's tier listings should be archived and then reset, but this will be a very rare occurrence, generally only if people feel the match up information is heavily outdated.

Q: I don't know enough about BB CP, so I don't want to vote, yet.
A: That's totally fine. One of the major features of our tier listings is the match up discussion pages for every match in the game. We hope the community actively uses these to exchange knowledge and help out other people who are struggling with a certain character. The tier pages are not just about people's perceptions of a character's power, but sharing information.
