Hello Hello!

Welcome back to the Community Tier List, this time for update 4.6! :sunny_happy_3: See 4.5’s results here.

A new hero, a timely hotfix, and interesting balance changes… who’s on top now?? Can Skaarf repeat as prime mid-lane pick? Or will newcomer Ishtar steal it from his adorably chubby claws?? :skaarf: Or how about Ozo Ozo Ozo? Bouncing his way to dominance, maybe?? :ozo:

Like last time, it doesn’t matter what tier you are, or how qualified you feel - just pick your top five choices for each role! :muscle:

And feel free to chat about your picks in this thread!

I would vote, but I’m not sure what the heroes are actually like since I only play Brawl. For reference, my favorite “captain” would be Warhawk or Inara with boosted rare talent- spammable healing, damage, and CC. I’m so out of touch with the actual META :flicker:

No worries! I’ve been ranking more recently, and playing the most seriously I have in a long long while, but am having a pretty tough time making up my mind. The meta seems really open right now, and aside from popular bans, there’s a good amount of variety in my matches… For my five picks in each position, I think I’ll just pick the heroes I have the most success with, instead of trying to pick what I think is the most efficient or effective meta selection. And then when the results are tallied, we’ll see how popular those picks really are! :easter_happy_1:

How’s everyone feeling on their picks? I’ve been pretty non-VG busy and couldn’t swing back around earlier… thinking polls should close pretty soon? I’ll be tallying votes imminently, so make any changes you need to!

Alright, alright! Results are in… and the winners are… drumroll:drum:

:vgroles_captain: Catherine!
:vgroles_jungle: Inara!
:vgroles_carry_top: Joule!
:vgroles_carry_mid: SKAAAAARF!!! :skaarf:
:vgroles_carry_bot: Caine!

also, ARAL and Rumble jointly reign supreme among brawls!

Huge congratulations to everyone’s most everyone’s favorite dragon, Skaarf, for being top in mid lane YET AGAIN! :skaarfneon:

I picked Cath, Skaarf, and Joule, but not Inara or Caine, who seem strong to me, personally, but not super effective when I use them (because I’m bad) or in my games, for whatever reason. I’m especially curious about how to play as Inara. We only have one build in her guide thread, but I’m sure there are a least a couple other viable ones. Maybe a hybrid WP/Utility one with tensionbow?

You really should build her like any other utility jungler right now (mostly Ylva, and Grumpjaw).

Stormcrown first, alongside tier 2 Boots.

Crucible second 90% of the time.

Finish your War Treads.

Pulseweave/Aftershock.

Rooks Decree.

Finale slot usually taken up by flare gun. If you actually get the gold, celestial shroud can be really good against Skaarf.

Edit: Atlas can also replace pretty much anything after Crucible if needed.
