I'm so sorry if I bothered or annoyed anyone. Necro your system is perfect, now you got the votes you can began the hard work of classifying and adding the powers.
wish you all the best.
Guys no need for another system, Necrotifice's system is perfect and simple.
No one said we should use another system it was a suggestion but they went out of their way to criticize it,
Okay, but then we have a new problem. Monkey D. Luffy has Rubber Mimicry, but so do Mario, Luigi, Kevin Levin (Ben 10), and Jack-Jack(Incredibles). If you're basing the strength of Rubber Mimicry off of one character's actions, it still reflects on the others. Now we're saying that Jack Jack has a Continental/Metropolitan level power?
Why the duck you rank power based on it's users instead of the power itself?
My logic is not extremely flawed, as I said the matter is subjective and that why you didn't see it from my perspective, calling my logic is extremely flawed is what subjective means. if you don't see it as subjectively different then you don't understand what subjective means.
I see your point but it's not like you will work with eight-tiered system you can tailor it as you want and as it fit, it's a suggestion after all.
I see your hate for vsbattle-esque tiered system made you forget the second system I proposed and as I said you can edit it if you want.
The point stands that if we went with 8 levels, then we would run into the problem of the same users being on multiple pages. That's not something we can really avoid.
But why you really care about users? users tend to have multiple powers and most of these powers vary in power scale. and even if his main power and its many uses land him a place on multi-pages here he is just an example of these powers regard his potency in his verse.
Besides I thought we are wiki about superpowers and users are just a mere examples for them, why we care where every user should be in level of power, it look like we are battle wiki all of a sudden.
Now let leave my suggested system a side. and talk about this
The exact definitions of the "Absolute" powers are still a little loose and there's an ongoing conversation about what "Absolute" means in terms of powers. There's also some people who'd like to see those powers done away with entirely, though I'm not sure that's reflective of what the community wants.
Absolute powers should be an aspect of omnipotence but I see them here as secondary powers, and so many limitations. Absolute vs Absolute doesn't really work, or Absolute as limitation to another Absolute. that not how Absolute really work.
If you going to limit omnipotence then it's not omnipotence anymore and the same for Absolute powers, you either treat them like omnipotence in level of power or they are not really Absolute anymore. If you going to limit Absolute then a better way is to rename them to another name like Almighty.
I am not going to use the VsBattle tiering system because I think there are serious problems with it. Namely in that it focuses almost solely on combat and even more specifically on destructive ability.
The problem is that you and sage only see tiering system as flawed and inaccurate, and so influenced by the negativity against their tiering system, the problem in their system is the characters leveling are flawed not the powers. they don't rank superpowers.
Besides that tiering does really work, how do you rank reality warping and almighty, Meta and absolute powers, they are so broken even at destructive ability scale they can influence there entire verse.
Now leave destructive ability a side because it's just is just one aspect of them, Most Almighty, Meta and absolute powers will rank in your system and on mine the same tier, right? if that so that mean my suggestion isn't flawed and work. but it's subjective matter after all.
Not sure why your trying to follow the VS Battle wiki's way of tiering for the superpower wiki Most of the information on their isn't even accurate.
I didn't follow the VS Battle at all these lists derived as logical conclusion of superpowers scale. You are right about most of their informations isn't accurate, but the inaccuracy is in their characters leveling not the powers itself.
Not sure why you mentioned the inaccuracy of their information though, that has nothing to do with superpowers.
Besides superpower tiering does really work, it's just a subjective matter you may think that the tiering of superpowers will not work, but another person sees them working
Waiting for @Necrotifice to read and comment on the subject.
Power of the super power lol
It's more like the scale of superpower :) some powers have small scale and some have omniversal scale and can effect everything.
@SageM Out of curiosity SageM why you don't like a form/variation of superpowers? we have a lot of them so it's not like superpowers variations doesn't exist in this wiki and fictional powers come in a lot of forms and variations.
So, @DeuzExMachina , which things exactly are you unsure of? And did you check the blog post that was linked in this post? It explains a lot more and gives specific examples. If you're confused about something specific you should ask - I'd be happy to explain anything I'm being unclear about.
@Necrotifice I was wandering on what your tier system will look like, like VSbattle or a new one and whether you add other variables to it or not like its strength, versatility and defense.
I just notice your blog and read it, I think I understand your idea.
But Peak Human, Enhanced, Supernatural and Absolute probably maybe not really accurate as some powers are bellow Peak Human and some powers are between Peak and Enhanced or between Enhanced and Supernatural or between Supernatural and Absolute ..etc.
My suggestion instead of those 4 categories these 8 categories
We need Necrotifice here to explain the details of his idea
I think they will do exactly like that, making tiering system category and add powers to it.
Right now we have a vague idea on how the tiering system will look like.
I can already imagine the countless discussion of which power is better and etc
I think we can solve this like vsbattle where the the moderators make an open discussion thread and the members and wiki staff discuss the topic and and after an agreement of the rank they make the edit.
Matthub You are right, this is an interesting update, lets see the result of it
I support you Necrotifice
Sorry I had to do it :)
It's what you can do with your power. if you have x power its applications is what you do with it.
You are the writer so whatever you chose will work.
