How to use the Tier List
Although the rankings are simplified into a linear list, many different facets are considered before a placement is determined. For example, a particular hero may be stronger overall than another, but could be placed lower due to the extreme amount of team coordination required to play that particular hero to its intended potential. Or, a particular hero may be objectively weaker from a balance perspective, but is placed higher due to its effectiveness against currently popular and in-meta heroes.
