FYI They re-did most of the difficulties. Rio and girls on film are both max difficulty now on drums.

    If I got this I imagine 50% of my setlist would be tiers 5-6.

    Satch Boogie didn't make it to L:RB. It's impossibly huge difficulty is inappropriate for small children due to their brains exploding every time they try to play it.

    Only about 120/260 exported for me. I know tow sawer(master) and limelight(master) both were bumped up to max.

    They also redid the RB1 ratings so that the Bass is a separate rating than the guitar.

    This is what I initially read. I had presumed you were gathering up children to play Satch Boogie in some sort of sick controlled experiment.

    My bad.

    I noticed that Won't Get Fooled Again is red-dots on everything now, which tickled me for no particular reason.

    I suppose I'm just glad the Who's Next stuff is in the game at all. :D:D:D:D:D

    I don't think they neccessarally "revamped" the tiering system, I think the just bumped alot of the songs up, kind of going with the "kid/family-friendly" approach, they're figuring stuff veteran players find easy to be more challenging to younger kids and less experienced players. I mean, as Zage said, I don't think HMX can serious say that Wonderwall belongs in the same guitar tier as GG&HT; but for new players, the chord changes are quite difficult.

    It seems that the tiering wasn't designed with DLC/RB1 songs in mind. They wanted to make it so that the last 6 or 7 (?) songs would be in Lego's final tier, the next 6 or 7 songs would be in the penultimate tier, &c. In order to do that without overtiering the hell out of the Lego songs, they made the lowest difficulty ranking for "Out of this world" songs way lower than that of Rock Band 2's (and 1 for that matter) "Impossible" tier. Notice how the songs are still in the same order as they always were.

    It would be interesting to see the tiering on L:RB songs once exported to RB2.

    Guys, the DLC and RB1 songs are re-tiered because it's where they belong in comparison to the LEGO songs.

    Think of it this way, every song is given a number rating for each instrument (I believe it's 1-500). They then take the average of the 4 ratings and tweak it to account for intangibles like unison bonuses. This gives each song an overall difficulty rating and a difficulty rating for each instrument. Put those in order and there's your tiers. The main setlist makes the base and then imported songs are tiered where they would be if they were in the main setlist.

    Excellent, thanks for the tip!

    Edit: Mmm, not really, I'm only seeing band tier, am I missing something?
