~*Simple Explanation of Extrapolated Standings*~
A = Strongest Character
B = Character Weaker than A
C = Character Weaker than B
To figure out a character's extrapolated percentage ---> [(CvB)(BvA)]/50 = CvA
To compare how C would do against B ---> [(CvA)/(BvA)]*50 = CvB
To figure out how B would do against A ---> [(CvA)/(CvB)]*50 = BvA

All this high praise for it has got me looking to wishlist it on the Switch now...not available to do so yet though.

Might get it on Steam before then.

It's hard to believe that Dying Light is the weakest of the non-Tomb Raider losers. Either Red Dead 2 is a powerhouse, or we're in for some hilarious round 2 matches.

The biggest issue of note today is to see how much MGSV gets exposed. I'm not counting on Dead Cells to be worth much more than the blank that was Disco Elysium, so once again it's all up to the antivotes. There's the question of whether or not Hotline Miami is underseeded, but today's result can't be trusted due to the SFF. You know, because both games are difficult and involve dying a lot.

I should note that I don't think FighterZ's match pic will be working any miracles here, but if it somehow does than that's proof positive we need to get Goku in a character battle ASAP.

I can believe it's low fodder, but weaker than a hated fighting game and a game roughly 10 of the voters have played?

I don't believe RDR2 is going to crush the rest of the division.

Well, it's got plenty of space for Dying Light to be the weakest game and still beat either of those games comfortably.

Yakuza is not PS exclusive.

Pretty much was until last month when it became free on Xbox Games pass

Oh and PC version has been available too for a while

But most of its strength is from Sony
