Tiering the RBN

LiveHomeVideoLiveHomeVideo Trying too hard
edited May 2012 in The Rock Band Network
Hey, I decided today that, for kicks, I should start a thread where the community lists all the RBN songs (RB2 and RB3) in an order of increasing difficulty on different instruments. I'll start with guitar wit the songs I own, and with my personal opinion. Then you guys will pitch in your songs and opinions for where they belong, as well as where to put them. While it may take a long time, I'm hoping someday this thread will be up-to-date with all the RBN songs by difficulty on all instruments. Please note that 2x Bass Pedal versions will note be included, since they are the same as other songs, and they'd all be at the bottom of each list for obvious reasons.

    Well this is pretty ambitious. I'm not sure how to rank all the songs I own, but I can throw some suggestions out there. Are you going by passing difficulty, or something else? I'm going to assume passing difficulty.

    There are definitely some that you don't have that should probably go right down there at the bottom of the list. There's a bunch of Chaotrope stuff that's insane (Diachylon might be the hardest to pass, but Reaper, Baptized by Fire, Entropy/Extropy, both parts of Thief in the Night, and probably some others are also all pretty ridiculous). Headed for the Ditch by Andy Timmons is absurdly hard - maybe not quite at the level of Guitars Suck or Diachylon, but still in the bottom chunk. Time No More by Evile and A Slight Amplification by Turrigenous are two of the most awkward guitar charts in the game and should also be near the bottom (I don't think videos do Time No More's difficulty justice - it's much tougher than it looks). On and On by Fallen Angel is currently rated as the hardest guitar FC in RBN ony Scorehero (it's 3rd overall, behind Operation Ground and Pound and Pulse of the Maggots), with its solos being considered some of the hardest sections in the game. Granted, that's FC difficulty, which can be very different from passing difficulty (especially with a song like that where it's not too hard to save up overdrive and then flail through the solos), but it still might be worth a look.

    I might have more ideas (and suggestions for places other than "near the very bottom") later.

    Thanks.

    And yes, this is passing difficulty (why songs that have some random spam sections, but are otherwise really easy aren't at the bottom.

    List updated. I didn't add any more Chaotrope songs, since most of the videos I find are solos, and I can only find one solo for On and On (and it's part of the solo), so I can't base it all on fragments.

    All I know is just about all of my RBN songs are HILARIOUSLY undertiered. I can GS and even FC in some cases devil-tiered HMX DLC, yet there are TWO dot parts on RBN songs that I can't even 4 star.
