 Since i have seen so many people ask for a card rank guide i though i would make one Now I rank units by the formula (Total Damage / Deployment Cost) X (1 + 0.4 X Speed) where E = 1 and S = 5 I get the 0.4 from the the fact Reinhard does 80% of Vlads ground damage over the same time NOTE THIS IS NOT A PRICE GUIDEALSO IT DOES NOT TAKE INTO ACCOUNT UNIT ABILITIES OR RANGE so this highly under rates Area Attack and High Range 6* S Rank (19000+) Charles, Nina, Isis, Nanaca A Rank (17000  19000) Aksana, Ludmila, Fenrir, Valafar, Rain, Chandelle, Grey B Rank (15000  17000) Isabel, Eluit, Dana, Manfred, Anastasia, Dana(Reprint), Ellan, Cecilia, Vampiress, Lu Bu, Cuniculus, Alvida C Rank (13000  15000) Eurydike, Ridill, Minotaur, Diana, Dolce, Armure, Paris, Aragon(Reprint), Beatrix, Rurijisa, Delfina, Gideon, Hippolyte, Oktavia, Aragon, Gloria(Princess), Arcadia, Bajardo, Georgios, VDay Diana, Sagrado, Marybell, D Rank (11000  13000) X'mas Reamy, Magnus, Agrippina, Ombre, Evurifu, Melodia, Saki, Monica, Dorothea, Reve, Abel, Loki, Belethi, Matahari E Rank (9000  11000) Harthi, Adamas, X'mas Fancios, Francois, Debbie, Minerva, Alsiel, Marjoram, Ethelred, Juana, Medicis, Petra, Lys, Nine Tailed Fox, Chiara, Vine, Verlegen, Mitra, Zhao Yun, Reinhard, Vlad, Seth, Claudette, Monica(Halloween), Succubus, Tania, Tina F Rank(0  9000) Solar, Nunnally, Faith, Rouge, Cornelia, Alexander Raw Data  Spoiler:

 Something is seriously wrong with this chart when Aragon (both versions) are in C Rank.

I worked out Aragon by
158800 / 30 * 2.6 = 13762
It's mainly her cost of 30 which puts her that low
I would gladly change my formula if you can give a reason too (IE does her speed become S with speed daemon? )

Unit rank should be determined case by case, not by a onefitall formula

yes she's a beast in battle arena but you would still only be able to use 4 of her.

 Nonono. Can of worms. Cards are valued as highly as the individual feels it's worth.
Different units will excel in different events. Example being, Vlad will destroy in the allmelee BA.

 This is pretty much a waste of time. It's not a unit value list. It's a really bad arena list. A really really bad arena list.

I don't think he can. He ignored skills, which is problematic. And I doubt he could create a numerical value for them.
I didn't mean it was a waste of time for us. I meant he was wasting his time doing it. The numbers he has access to are not even all the numbers. Then there are factors beyond the numbers.

 What is the goal of this list? Keep in mind that battle arena, arena, bosses, and quests have very different priorities and valuations. One of the big reasons why tier lists fall apart is because they don't account for these differences. Which of these modes is your formula designed to illuminate? How can you improve the accuracy for a specific set of circumstances?

 What I am trying to do with this list is give a brief overview of the return on cost used on a unit to the damage it deals out, now I know there are 3 different types of damage and also value changes depending on the current event and situation.
however I realize this list is almost useless due to in most events and quests the amount of deploy cost they give us is way to big, thus there's almost no challenge in the biggest part of this game.
I mean the only place that's actually a proper challenge is attacking due to the limited deploy cost other then that there no real skill other then grinding or paying money. Think of it this way have you ever been on your toes waiting for your cost to regenerate enough so you can deploy the last unit and win the level?
It's like the core of this game(the quests) is just ... missing or to easy. This game would be 10X better if there was a hard mode where they half to third the deploy cost on each level or start your deploy at 0.

Too me the biggest problem with ranking units will ALWAYS BE someone will complain that their favorite unit is ranked badly or not high enough. There's simply no way around this, someone will always come last :/
The biggest problem is you cannot even make an iffy list without access to more data and processes than we have. Your rankings were arena as I said(DC means nothing outside of arena, either normal or battle), and they would have put things like Emperor Arcadia/Derufina/Akusana lower than Charles(because DC means little on the individual card. It is dependent on the other cards in the team). Even outside of arena, those three cards whip Charles up and down the street, buck naked.

 I got the idea to use cost for this list because in the Japanese wiki all the card have a コストパフォーマンス or cost performance at the end which is basically (Total damage / deploy cost)

To my knowledge, Cost Performance column was put there because of Arena...

 I dont like this guide much. Every unit has their own uses and ignoring their skill altogether just doesn't work. Even if units have high deploy costs doesn't mean they're bad.
I know for instance that Isis is bad in arena, way too slow to be effective, she just gets knocked to no where just because of her speed. Poison was casted when it was the start of my turn, which made her poison completely ineffective.
Skills are just too important to ignore. Only event that doesn't have skills involved is boss fights in training events and such. But still in that case, it's DPS thats important not Damage/Deploy Cost.
Honestly though, i cant really find a use for this guide >.<.

 I know of 1 more way to rank unit's but it'll take me a lot longer to make. also i still won't be able to factor in skills. :/
Due to there are about 90 6* , 130 5* and 180 4* this will take a while
