D&D 5E Zard's S Tier Archetypes

...It was a Joke... 🥸

... but way to staggeringly over-react.
Maybe use /s next time?

The problem with the internet is that for every person making a joke like that, there's a person saying it 100% seriously and absolutely believing it. Given you were basically suggesting I'd made up the S-rank thing earlier it wasn't hard to imagine that you might also believe the internet thing.

I mean, jesus dude, I was speaking to a guy on reddit before who tried to tell me that the C in CRPG stood for "classic RPG", not "computer RPG", and that there weren't really any RPGs on computers before Baldur's Gate.

Hillsfar was before Baldur's Gate.

ROFL quite! It was just amazing, I was like, slack-jawed about the whole thing. This sort of thing happens pretty regularly, as some late teen or overconfident twenty-something blithely names a 1999 or 2004 or 2007 or whatever game as the game which "originated" an idea. Often they even get people agreeing with them before the mockery ensues.

I do have to admit, whilst it wasn't the first, it is odd how Hillsfar sticks in my mind as "early D&D RPG". There's something special about that game.

I think it was because it was so bad. It's the Plan Nine from Outer Space of D&D games.

That... may be sadly true. It was bad. But I dunno, I was like 10-11, and it seemed kind of amazing too, in that it had a lot more going on atmosphere-wise than some other games of the era. Of course Ultima 6 came out the next year and there's just no comparison, U6 is astonishing for its time.

For an amusing take on this kind of Tier list, see TierZoo, where the channel rates animals in very much the same manner:
Nah, every class should be ranked according to this methodology:
