Why you should never, EVER trust Eventhubs' tier list.

Eventhubs' tier list system sounds like a great idea at first. Where anyone can vote based on matchups at any time. The only problem is, there is a ton of bias.

I remember for weeks Wario and Kirby were the two at the bottom of the list. Let that sink in for a moment. This is because if someone doesn't like that character, they can create multiple accounts to vote against them. People could also vote based on one match where a player played that character poorly.

For a while, and this was in January I think, Megaman was #4 on the list. Wanna know why? Some big TO (can't remember who for the life of me) told everyone on his stream and his twitter to upvote the "super fighting robot" on Eventhubs' tier list. This led to confusion among many.

This tier list is also not official, as there are no real tier lists for Smash 4 yet.

We all have seen these types of threads on this sub and Smashboards asking "why is this character considered low tier?" And they would say that they were referring to the EH tier list.

Please, never use this list, just let it die out.

tl;dr, Eventhubs' smash 4 tier list is horrible because of bias and false info. Never use it.

Being the first result on Google search doesn't help either.

This kinda makes me want to do some sort of gigantic thing where we all vote charizard up to #1. It would be incredibly hilarious.

edit: Charizard has surpassed Fox! Things are looking up for our red dragon."

Edit 2: He has surpassed diddy kong! Charizard for top tier!

Edit 3: They... They undid all our hard work... those monsters.

Nah we need to do this for mii sword fighter. That way all the scrubs will riot about how miis are banned from FG and nintendo will add them.

> Charizard becomes #1 on eventhubs
> everyone starts playing Charizard
> Charizard meta evolves
> Charizard actually becomes #1

See, now this is for a good cause. How's that poor lizard going to see the top of the tier list otherwise?

well I guess Nintendo could use that nifty patch system and try to make him better, but I'm doubtful

Wasn't there just a thread today talking about why duck hunt was so low? He was going off the eventhubs list.

You'd be surprised by the number of people who cite it, but yeah most people are smart enough to know it sucks. At least in the FGC

it used to be a good site around 2010. then they went downhill when they started to talk about thing not related to sf. then they simply started lurking shoryuken.com articles and forums. then they started to try to milk customers and so on (with something i belive was a subscription fee and a ton of intrusive ads). and the quality fell over and over. as of now i don't trust anything that is written on there.

The problem is that too many people do. Personally, I don't take any tier list too seriously. A character could be bottom tier forever, then one guy does well as the character in a tournament and suddenly these tier lists start putting the character in the upper tiers. I just play a bit of everyone every once in a while to see if any character feels right for me. There are very few characters in this game I would say are completely not worth anyone's time.
