Introduction
------------------------------------------------------

Here is the Brawl Back Room's sixth release of its tier list. Unlike the past six month release schedule, this list has come [just over] nine months since version five; we feel that the game has reached a certain level of maturity that does not require as frequent updates - this period of time may be lengthened for subsequent releases.
Also unlike our last release, the BBR has 'split' from rule set creation - and with the unity rule set becoming a growing standard voters were requested to take the unity rule set into account. However, as always, votes placed were based on their own opinion.

Character Movement Explained
------------------------------------------------------

:toonlink: 14. Toon Link ±0 (Middle to High)
Although Toon Link didn't move any spots this time around, he did make the jump from middle tier to high tier. One of the things that contributed to this was his recent success in large US tournaments. His ability to nab top spots in tournaments like MLG, Brainshock, SiiS, Pound, and W/HOBO caught the attention of many. Toon Link is a versatile character that can deal with almost all situations using his abundance of available options, given that the player behind him knows how to mix-up his options. Overall, his moveset is solid, he is generally good in the majority of stages and has an above average MU spread. Combining this with his recent tournament success, members of the backroom feel that he is good enough to receive that minor bump into high tier, eliminating him from mid tier.
:wolf: 16. Wolf +6
Wolf skyrocketed up the tier list in v6, the second biggest rise so far since Sonic's +8. One of the biggest factors that led to this is Wolf’s top-10 MK matchup, which at -1 is something he definitely has over the characters he passed this round. He also has solid matchups overall and results that are fitting for a character in upper-mid *points to Nike’s charts and John#s’ winnings table* While Wolf does have three solid counters (D3, Pikachu, and Wario), they are all relatively uncommon in the current metagame and therefore do not hold his performance back significantly in tournament. As seen from Fox's rise in the last tier list, the general opinion of the BBR is that a good MK matchup and strong results are more important than having three uncommon counters, so we see Wolf getting a similar boost towards the top of mid tier.
:dk2: 18. Donkey Kong +2
Donkey Kong finally achieves his only rise since the first tier list! Two important factors can be attributed to DK for this. The first, arguably being the most significant, is a huge decline in the usage of King Dedede; without that horrid match up baring DKs placements in tournament, he is able to place much higher than ever before. DK also has an improving (but still not great) match up with MK. Not only Will, but other East Coast and Midwest DKs have shown that the match is winnable with enough effort. These two factors, combined with the fact that DK fares well against the rest of top and high tier (such as having an even match up with snake and marth), plus steady results, leads to a warranted rise on this tier list
Come back [for more] later =)

things to note:

Olimar/Pika didn't go up in placement but have joined "top tier".
Toon Link didn't go up in placement either.

D Tier (Fox, Wolf, Peach) would have been cool in high tier. BUT ALAS THEY WERE NOT GOOD ENOUGH.

OMG FIRST PAGE

Lucario above Dedede
Jigglypuff is a Hyrulian now

Also Random on the Tier List?

Also Olimar and ICs should probably be switched, but other than that this is cool beans.

I'm diggin' this.

Oh wow, MK's got his own Tier now, just as I predicted...

Also Diddy above Snake hype. I still think Snake is 2nd but w/e, hype regardless.

I think the tier separation in top and high is spot on. My only critique is putting fox one tier higher.

I guess, for the sake of Hyrule Tier being Hyrule Tier, we can just say that Jigglypuff is Navi?

ITT: Maining Random is not viable for money

Why does random have a tier placing, is this a joke?

even though I think snake is better than diddy I'm not opposed to diddy being above snake because of the tier separations, they make a lot of sense imo

People should start having worse than random tournaments. For all characters who fall short of half.

also glad PT isn't low tier. That would be pretty effing ********.
With the current Low Tier, yes.
It just seems that Low-tier is getting less... interesting as characters keep getting cut from it.
