Change Notes

I decided to do an overhaul to how I organized the competitive tier list. I went a bit quirk-happy last week, and started placing mechs in tiers where they really didn’t belong (sorry Dragon fans). So this week I’m getting more strict about it, and I’ve laid out my new thought process out in the description of each tier at the top. These changes have resulted in a much more slim, and accurate, list. The exception to this is the short range tier, cuz that’s always gonna be ugly with how many mechs can do it in so many different ways. Aside from the following change notes, I also did a fair amount of adjustment of mech positions within their tier.
