In an effort to increase character diversity, members of the Japanese Korean KOF community have created a ratio chart for an upcoming ratio tournament for KOF XIII. The practice of using ratio lists to increase character diversity dates back to some of the older KOF titles. See here for an example ratio list for KOF 2002um. Basically, you pick a team that comprised with characters with a total point ratio equal or less than number specified.
A note worth mentioning is that a ratio chart is not a tier list. It is meant to increase character diversity, so it is based on only on character strength, but also popularity and relative distribution of characters in the different ratios.
Do you agree or disagree with this ratio chart? Or do you feel like we should start running similar ratio tournaments in the future? Let us know in the comments below.
Update 1: Added a ratio chart from Scotland (Max ratio = 9).
Update 2: Our friends at kofkoucha and Gatoray pointed out that the ratio chart is in fact Korean, not Japanese. Much thanks to Meep for pointing this out.
