Type of list
A tier list is a video game cultural concept which subjectively rank playable characters or other in-game elements by their respective viability as part of a list. Characters listed high on a tier list of a specific game are considered to be powerful characters compared to lower-scoring characters, and are therefore more likely to be used in high-level competitive settings like tournaments. Tier lists are a popular method to assess the cast of playable characters in fighting games such as the Street Fighter and Super Smash Bros. series; multiplayer online battle arena titles such as League of Legends and Dota series; hero shooter titles such as Overwatch and Apex Legends; and action role-playing games with playable party members like Genshin Impact.
Tier lists have been used to rank elements from other subjects aside from video games, such as films, sports teams, logos, people and even animals.
When a competitive game gets an update, a question that arises is how the changes in the game will affect the tier list. Even when no balancing changes actually took place, the inclusion of new characters or new systems can affect tier lists. In fighting games, the strength of a character is always held relative to that of other characters, meaning that something that is strong in one fighting game does not necessarily have to be strong in another. The metagame may shift over time as dominant strategies get overturned using less popular characters.
Tier rankings may be listed using letter gradings. The competitive community surrounding Guilty Gear Xrd, for instance, ranks characters as 'S', 'S-', 'A+', and 'A', where 'S tiers' are particularly powerful and 'A tiers' less so. Major video game news websites such as The Daily Dot, Kotaku and PC Gamer may publish their own tier lists for popular games. 'S' tier may mean "Superb" or "Super" and may originate from academic grading in Japan.
For a game like Super Smash Bros. Melee, which was released in 2001 and has not been updated since, but is still popular in tournament settings, characters originally overpowered remain that way, due to their inability to receive character balancing updates. Different versions of the game may have different tier lists as well. The website Smashboards bases its yearly tier lists for the Super Smash Bros. series on polling results.
Writing for Kotaku, Maddy Myers noted that characters that are considered low-tier have an advantage over higher-tiered characters, as players have less experience dealing with low-tier characters and often underestimate them. Myers stated that "the element of surprise can only get you so far, but it's still an undeniable asset. And one that the bottom third of every tier list enjoys." Already popular characters may also rise in tier lists because high-level players establish and iterate on their combos and techniques. Myers also noted that tier lists are less useful in team-based games, because character roles and team composition introduce a complex set of variables. She also described tier lists as "full of shit".

Sometimes I will fall down the rabbit hole of something totally unrelated to education and find a tool that would be awesome to use in the classroom. I was watching a video on ranking Twitch streamers and the host used TierMaker to rank other Twitch streamers.
This is a great tool to use in your classroom to promote discussion. My example picture above is a TierMaker where you rank the US presidents. I could see this as a activity in a social studies classroom, where the teacher can promote discussion on assigning grade letters to presidents.
Anyone can use already created Tiers, but to create a Tier the user needs to have a Twitter account. This could be a problem with students creating Tiers. Other than that, this is a pretty cool tool to use in your classroom, and can be used remotely during video conferences.

Pushing aside his weak-willed subordinate at the last moment and continuing to hold her by the tail, pulling his head back a little. He slid his hand over the pulsating penis with sweeping movements and, splashing her face with sperm, caught his breath and immediately stepped aside, pulling on his boxers, buttoning up and refueling.
Katya looked exhausted and humiliated. Luka nervously ran a hand through his hair, stepped over to the table, found a pack of napkins in a drawer.

I did it again, and a warm trickle flowed down my legs. While she was telling the story of the monument, I already felt a little better. Then they moved forward, and I slowed down a little, hid behind the monument.
