That’s exactly what you said. You said it would be like someone giving a restaurant an A+ grade and then ordering sea bass and having sand on it. It’s a broken analogy.
Anchor was called a liar. You yourself said the guide is useless. If you can’t see how this may be construed as his efforts being criticized, that’s on you.

I would personally advise not ascending him, at least not the the final one if you’re going to level him up at all. Any other blue 5* will almost certainly outperform him by a considerable margin as he is currently
I love that you’re willing to provide your opinion here without any context from this person about what the rest of his team looks like, without any idea what his spending on the game is.
Because you have an opinion that this hero is beyond awful that the rest of the world doesn’t share… so you state without evidence that he’s bad and shouldn’t be used.
Your “guide” is no more objective than anchors. But at least he’s trying to make an accurate guide.

But he put alot of work into it”
So what? It’s irrelevant how much time is spent on something when judging the quality. I can spend years building a time machine that doesn’t work, anyone can.
“The guide is good, just misses the mark on some…”
No, a guide is only as good as it’s worst recommendation. If I made a guide of how to build a house that was perfect, except I say to use cotton candy for the roof, then the guide is useless.
As pointed out, comparing INSTRUCTIONS to a REVIEW is insanely off base. There’s your fallacy there.
Meanwhile, comparing HERO GRADES to RESTAURANT REVIEW can be a very good comparison.
I give the Cobb salad a B. It was yummy and there wasn’t any romaine so I didn’t get E. coli. I give the salmon a solid A, and the desert a C. The pumpkin pie was ordinary.
For my next visit I tried the wedge salad. I give it an A+. It blew my socks off. I give the steak an A. And I give the dessert an A, the lava cake was scrumptious!
The customer goes to the restaurant and gets the Wedge Salad, the Steak, and the Lava cake.
The wedge salad is the best they’ve ever had.
The steak is a little dry. Seasoned well, but far from spectacular. It’s a C in the world of steaks. Serviceable but not great.
The lava cake is an A. It’s one of the best desserts they’ve ever had.
What do you think this customer thinks of the restaurant review ?
You have made fallacies throughout this thread making comparisons or analogies that are broken. When this has been pointed out to you, you’ve claimed that people are being ridiculous or missing the point.
Please consider the possibility that you are missing the point.
You also stated above that people can’t critique the guide without having people jump down their throat. If the discussion were “he was given an A, and I disagree” then there would be and was a discussion about that. A robust, solid discussion I would say.
If the statement becomes: this guide is useless, and a lie, and anchor is trying to deceive people, then yes. You get some pushback.
You said above that Titan Mafia is coming up with a more objective guide. That is great and should be of benefit to the community.
I’m curious about their methods. Reading through your suggested methodology made me laugh a bit. Because it would be a darn near full time job.
You can’t JUST swap out heroes in a rainbow team, BECAUSE the vast majority of players aren’t going to field a rainbow team. You need to see how heroes work synergistically across a wide range of team setups to provide grades that are useful to a wide range of players.
The idea that you can place a hero in a standard rainbow team to gauge their relative performance is interesting, but ignores all possible synergies the game provides. There are an exceptional number of possibilities. I won’t even try to guess.
And of course, OF COURSE, the boards. You would need to try out, probably about 50-100 playthroughs to get an idea of effectiveness with different boards.
If SG wanted to make this easy, they could give us practice boards to work with that are standard, but I hope they wouldn’t because this type of discourse should be fun.
But that said, getting an “OBJECTIVE, SCIENTIFIC” (as you said) guide of the heroes is going to be insanely time intensive.
So, as I said. Go ahead and make your own guide. If you wanna criticize anchor.
And if you want to not criticize him, it’s this simple: “it’s a good guide mostly. There are some grades I disagree with. And this grade I disagree with vehemently. Here’s why…”
