Ratings Explanation

Ratings are given based on how each unit competes with others in their positions and roles for each given category, then collated into an Overall score. Unfortunately, this system is not too kind to niche units that are strong in their own niche. To view the more detailed break down of the ratings, hover over a character or click List View

Wave BossA unit's performance against bosses and waves of enemies at the same time. (Most Campaign Bosses). Some power deficit is assumed.
InterceptionA unit’s performance against Interception bosses. This rating also applies to the same bosses in other contexts (Campaign, Tower, Co-Op, etc). See the Interception guide for more details.
ArenaHow the unit competes in the PvP game mode Arena. Scores are currently focused on SP Arena as it is the more important Arena mode.
