Yo it's Feeds here, and I'm gonna make an educated tierlist for s7 duel for you guys :) I have over 600 games played of duel this season and have reached gm every split. Because this is console please remember that some gods may or may be better on PC due to them having the advantage of mouse and keyboard, so gods that need less aim are valued higher. Also keep note this is considering players from bronze through GM, some gods may be higher/lower depending on rank and level of player. My 3 god criteria are:
1. God Kit. (what they bring to the table as gods gameplay wise)
*This is weighted much higher than #2/3*
2. How the avg player Plays the god. (can an average player Hel combo into cc cleanse to avoid poseidon ult? Not that I’ve seen so while Hel has the tools to be S in actual game time she’s likely on average S-)
*This is weighted higher than #3 *
3. God popularity. (Not necessary to ban/be scared of a god if no one plays them. Ex. Persephone may be worth a ban but not many people on console play her or play her at a high level throughout the ranks, therefore it’s more beneficial to ban a god that is played more at the same level)
Note PVE on console is huge so PVE gods do get a small boost
This is 100% my opinion but this is coming from experience playing with and against these gods. Let's begin :)
Gods that if picked, right the right bans and played properly assert certain victory unless played in a mirror. Ullr would be here but his console version isn't as strong due to him being a skill shot god. Bakasura can win any match simply due to the fact that he has heal/movement in his kit and with golden blade buff is a pve and a fighting machine.
Gods that are the pinnacle of strength, first pick/first ban material. Bellona on console can beat an Anhur/Hou Yi late.
Gods that are super strong and can be banned and are high level gods. Medusa ult is much harder to dodge on console.
Gods that are very strong, usually not banned but can be banned in certain scenarios. Golden Blade buff puts mercury, arachne and nem all at S- now. Still not top bans though.
Above average gods, can be played at a high level in certain matchups or by the player. Nike buff boosts her to A+
Average, center of balance gods. Harder to play at a high level with but can be managed by matchups/player decisions. Mulan buffs put her at A. Loki PvE ability makes him average overall.
Below Average gods, usually not picked but can still win games if the matchup and player work in harmony. Although still at a disadvantage due to them being lower tier. guardians may be moved up or down a tier, my experience with them isn’t great
Bad gods, shy away from these picks unless counter picking on some off chance (snipers) and even then should not be picked. Faf wave clear can be easily stopped. i don’t have the most experience with guardians so they can be moved up or down a tier depending
B but worse. Ah Puch is only good against healers and even then he pretty much can’t get Phoenix ever.
D as in Don't pick pls ever.
