Hmm "specialized" makes more sense as opposed to the word at the other side of the spectrum ("versatile") and to get some top tiers to use it... By the way, "versatile" also exists in French and has the same meaning, so feel free to change if you want a more cohesive design, although I do think polyvalent is a better word to express your idea. I am not sure of the best French word for "specialized" (spécialiste?), but it made me think about this whole chart and I have a question: why isn't the horizontal axis rather focussing on "simple" Vs. "complex" characters? From my personal experience, this is rather how people separate characters when discussing fighting games. Whether they are top or low tiers, characters are often differentiated between those who are very easy to grasp and those that require a lot of practice to be played effectively and used to their full potential. Ex. When I was talking about UMVC3 with Iggy recently, he was telling me how high level players where convinced Rocket Raccoon had a lot of potential to be high on a tier list, but needed a lot of practice and experience of his strange movelist to be played correctly, how nobody was sure about Felicia's tier ranking because she was so complex to use, how Ryu became a good character by adding simple layers of new tricks to his existing movelist, how just mashing buttons together was almost good enough to play some DMC characters etc. It seems to me that simple Vs. complex is a constant comparison in fighting games. [URL=http://25.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_luby5kkUxn1qa7x49o1_500.png]Example.[/URL] I think a more specialized character requires more thought and careful use of the movelist, which is part of what makes it a more complex character (even if the tools available are themselves rather basic, the peculiar strategies to use these tools properly make the character more difficult to master). Whereas, my impression is that so-called "cheap" characters are those that combine being top tier and very simple to use efficiently.
