Change Notes

I’m doing another overhaul of Tier List structure here. Normally, I wouldn’t update Tier Lists because of such a tiny patch, but this one and the competitive one have been bugging me over the last week, because I know places where they’re wrong, so I took this opportunity to correct my mistakes and change the format a bit too. Before, I would separate the lists out in order Lights to Assaults, and I reversed that for flavor. Another, bigger deal, is that it used to be based directly on PGI’s tier list, which was sorted within tiers first by tonnage (light to heavy) and then alphabetically. I figure this is my list so I can sort it however the fuck I want, so they’ll generally be in order of how good the build/variant is. Finally, like I mentioned in the change notes for the Competitive Tier List, I went a bit quirk-happy last week, and started placing mechs in tiers where they really didn’t belong. That’s getting fixed today. I’m writing this before actually doing it…and man this is gonna take some time…
