comment Are there other RPGs with the phenomenon where the class that is stereotypically the best at something isn't the best at all?
The title of your question asks about whether the 3.5e tier system is relevant to other RPGs. The rest of your question asks if the problem 3.5e has, from which its tier system emerges, exists in other RPGs. Which is it? This sprung from a conversation we had about whether it's correct to just trivially describe another game's classes (or equivalent) in terms of a 3.5e tier, and whilst your titular question appears to ask about that, the question you're asking at the end of the body doesn't. What are you asking exactly?

comment Is there a OGL or GSL license for D&D 5e?
@Sheepy Is there a particular reason you're regularly making your answers community wiki? They're good answers, we can do editing without them being CW, there's no reason you need to make them that way.

revised Lovecraft's Cthulhu Mythos in pre-CoC D&D?
better than presuming there is going to be a link to a list, just ask for the list, and if there's a link, great. but asking for links is asking for link-only answers. (exception to some circumstances, though)

comment Is the old “Linear Fighters Quadratic Wizards” problem still around in 5e Basic?
The question is no longer about tiers, just the fighter/wizard power difference

revised Isn't wielding inappropriately large weapons pretty powerful?
this paragraph seemed at first like it somehow got distracted as an analysis of Power Attack. I'm editing it to make it very clear why it's talking about. It was mentioned before, but not in these terms, so it helps to just be explicit.

Could you comment on the asker's misunderstanding that they could pick up a large 2H weapon and wield it as a medium 2H weapon? That misunderstanding would give an impression of much better gains to be had.
