Intro

First off, welcome! Secondly, I think it's time for Naruto-Arena to have a system of ranking every character, so this will be an ongoing mission to place every N-A character into a tier. The tiers will serve the purpose of allowing opponents wishing to PB to make sure that the characters they chose to face each other with will be similar in use. The tier a character is placed in will be based the power of said character at different points in the game. For those who do not understand the purpose of this project, the following is a conversation based example of how the tier system will work.
Example
Player A says to Player B: Lets PB!
Player B says to Player A: What tier?
Player A says to Player B: Standard Tier.
Player B says to Player A: Okay.

Player A and Player B then proceed to select 3 characters from the desired tier (in this case Standard) and any lower tier so that when they battle their characters will be equal in power, use, and ability.


Method

Step 1) Select a character to be tested
Step 2) Select which level to test at (genin, missing-ninja, jounin, jinchuriki)
Step 3) Create an optimal team for the selected character using only characters that would be avaliable at the selected level (with an exception to the actual character being tested)*
Step 4) Give the character its starting rank of Bottom Tier
Step 5) Commence in six battles with the selected character, and move the character up one tier for every victory he/she secures (matches that this character faces against characters that are inappropriate for the selected level will not be counted) (matches that the tester deems sheer luck will not be counted)
Step 6) Record the character's tier for whatever level he/she was tested on
Step 7) Once a character has been tested at every level, calculate the amount of points he/she has earned and determine his/her overall tier**

*
Usable characters when testing the Genin level: Starting Characters, Jiroubou, Kidoumaru, Tayuya, Sakon, Yoroi, Shigure, Oboro, Naruto (S), Sakura (S)

Usable characters when testing the Missing-Ninja level: All of the Above,

Usable characters when testing the Jounin level: All of the Above,

Usable characters when testing the Jinchuriki level: All

**
Step 1) Total the character's points using the chart below

A character that earned a Bottom Tier ranking at the genin level earns -1 points
A character that earned a Lower Tier ranking at the genin level earns 0 points
A character that earned a Sub-Standard Tier ranking at the genin level earns 1 points
A character that earned a Standard Tier ranking at the genin level earns 2 points
A character that earned a Sub-Meta Tier ranking at the genin level earns 3 points
A character that earned a Meta Tier ranking at the genin level earns 4 points
A character that earned a Ultra Tier ranking at the genin level earns 5 points
A character that earned a Bottom Tier ranking at the missing-ninja level earns 0 points
A character that earned a Lower Tier ranking at the missing-ninja level earns 1 points
A character that earned a Sub-Standard Tier ranking at the missing-ninja level earns 2 points
A character that earned a Standard Tier ranking at the missing-ninja level earns 3 points
A character that earned a Sub-Meta Tier ranking at the missing-ninja level earns 4 points
A character that earned a Meta Tier ranking at the missing-ninja level earns 5 points
A character that earned a Ultra Tier ranking at the missing-ninja level earns 6 points
A character that earned a Bottom Tier ranking at the jounin level earns 1 points
A character that earned a Lower Tier ranking at the jounin level earns 2 points
A character that earned a Sub-Standard Tier ranking at the jounin level earns 3 points
A character that earned a Standard Tier ranking at the jounin level earns 4 points
A character that earned a Sub-Meta Tier ranking at the jounin level earns 5 points
A character that earned a Meta Tier ranking at the jounin level earns 6 points
A character that earned a Ultra Tier ranking at the jounin level earns 7 points
A character that earned a Bottom Tier ranking at the jinchuriki level earns 2 points
A character that earned a Lower Tier ranking at the jinchuriki level earns 3 points
A character that earned a Sub-Standard Tier ranking at the jinchuriki level earns 4 points
A character that earned a Standard Tier ranking at the jinchuriki level earns 5 points
A character that earned a Sub-Meta Tier ranking at the jinchuriki level earns 6 points
A character that earned a Meta Tier ranking at the jinchuriki level earns 7 points
A character that earned a Ultra Tier ranking at the jinchuriki level earns 8 points

Step 2) Determine the character's overall tier based on his/her total points when in regards to the chart below

If the total points are 2-4 he/she earns an overall Bottom Tier
If the total points are 5-8 he/she earns an overall Lower Tier
If the total points are 9-12 he/she earns an overall Sub-Standard Tier
If the total points are 13-16 he/she earns an overall Standard Tier
If the total points are 17-20 he/she earns an overall Sub-Meta Tier
If the total points are 21-24 he/she earns an overall Meta Tier
If the total points are 25-26 he/she earns an overall Ultra Tier


Help Requests

Currently I am looking for other character testers to help me compile research for the characters. I am also looking for someone to make cool banners for each titled section. And i would love an admin/mod to make this thread sticky at the top of its category. Most of all I would love everyone to spread this thread around and to use it when commencing in casual PBs or as a new form of tournament banning/limitation.


Comment Question of the Week

What is the best team to test Gaara with?


Testers Current Projects

pobnetr is currently researching



The Tiers

Ultra Tier
- Characters in this tier are too powerful for fair competitive play

Meta Tier
- Characters in this tier are not as powerful as Ultra Tier characters

Sub-Meta Tier
- Characters in this tier are not as powerful as Meta Tier characters

Explination
When 2 players want to pb (for fun, testing, or a tournament) they both may bring characters whose power is far too different from each other. Essentially this project is out to create an easy system for 2 players to select evenly matched characters.
Example
Player A says to Player B: Lets PB!
Player B says to Player A: What tier?
Player A says to Player B: Standard Tier.
Player B says to Player A: Okay.

Player A and Player B then proceed to select 3 characters from the desired tier (in this case Standard) and any lower tier so that when they battle their characters will be equal in power, use, and ability.
