What are top tiers?

Manji Z-Ryshan : hehe.. Yoshi's gettin weaker day by day... like he lost the unblockables in T6.. :'(

Weaker and probably even more complicated to play. :(( You know, I could never understand why everyone else seemed so much better at Tekken than I am. I mean, I know I never played many video games before and Tekken was the first fighting game I had ever played but still, I am not a stupid person so you'd expect I could learn to play at least averagly. Yet no matter how much I tried I continued to suck. I had mostly given up but recently I had some friends over for a few rounds of Tekken washed down with beer. After losing several times (why can we say several but not eleveral?? I think I'll start using that word in the hopes that it will catch on... hey, it can be the new 'dozen' because no one uses dozen anymore so there's surely a great big hole in the English language that needs filling with the word eleveral!!! anyway, back to topic...) after losing eleveral times, I decided to pick a new character and just hit buttons in the hope that something cool would happen... and something cool DID happen, I won! Quite often too!! Sadly though, this means that my losing streak wasn't just down to my own crapness (though it helped :p) but was also because of Yoshi himself...

I will stay loyal to Yoshi but you have to admit there is something unfair about a character that requires so much more thought to play than say, Lili or Eddie and yet is still weaker than the others even when you DO master him?

Surely the fair thing would have been to make those characters which could be played by a drunken monkey, a little weaker than most and those characters which require a university degree to be able to play should be stronger? But what do I know about video games anyway??
