In Fire Emblem Heroes, the all players are in some tier, but I can't figure out what determines this. For instance, the first week, I (and I think all players) was in tier 1, the second week I was in tier 2, and this week I've been in tier 3. From what I've found, you only fight players in the same tier as you, but I haven't been able to figure out what determines tier each week.

If it helps anyone figure it out, I've been scoring around 3100 - 3600 in offense each week and 250 - 270 in defense, but have been unranked.

    It's probably just being promoted to the next tier if you do relatively well in the season. It's too early to know if there's a ceiling yet and I too have been doing well in general (in intermediate battles) to see if there's a drop or even not advance. From what I could tell, if you don't participate in arena battles, you don't advance. Feb 19, 2017 at 20:41
  • Yeah, I was guessing it was something along those lines, but I was wondering if someone had figured out more details.

    You're not limited to only fighting people in your tier - I'm tier 4 and occasionally still have tier 1's as options. I do think it's limited to one level of promotion per season, so I don't think anyone's above tier 4 yet.

1.3.0 update brings us this chart depicting the tier system and how the new rewards work. I am pretty sure that if you score over a certain amount, you get moved up. Also, starting from 1.3.0, once you reach tier 8 (there is a total of 20 tiers) you can move down if you are not participating/scoring well.
