    Hey guys, long time lurker, first time poster. I used to come here all the time back in like 2013 for builds to play, and at that time in my life I had a lot of free time to play like everything. Now I’m coming back for the first time in many years, and frankly, there’s just SO. MANY. BUILDS. I used to just use the legendary tag, but it’s been so long that there are a lot of builds that qualify on there. And they are all awesome, don’t get me wrong. But I work full time and have a wife and kids now. So I don’t have time to play everything like I used to. I was wondering if there was a way to figure out which builds had the most likes out of all of them. I realize there is a hall of fame section, but even there there are quite a lot of builds, and I’m looking to be able to get the top 20, or even 10. There doesn’t seem to be a way to sort by likes, unless I’m just dumb. Thanks in advance for the help!

    Hey there mate, welcome back to the site. So, tough questions honestly because, it's pretty subjective and all and has become even harder because now we have a pretty substantial number of modded builds that you may or may not be able to play. This is just a quick personal general list but it might be fun if I tried to break down a top 10 or 15 at some point and I'll post that later. 

    SE Rank: Master is a good starting point, it has a lot of modern builds but the quality is definitely at least the same as the Legendary builds (if not better in a lot of cases), it only has a handful of builds and if you add in SE Rank: Expert that gives you the top 7 modern builds. They are pretty mod heavy so, yeah if you aren't able to play with mods (or at least PC mods) then let me know and I'll change it up for my final list.

    I realize that “best” is pretty subjective, and to be honest, I really haven’t come across a build on here ever that I haven’t enjoyed playing. So a top list would be really cool to get just so I could an idea of some builds that are “must plays” so to speak. But it does say a lot that I haven’t come across a build on here that I haven’t liked. And unfortunately I am on ps4 so most mods are unavailable for me because of Sony’s restrictions

    Fair enough, fair enough. I'll probably have a mix of older and newer builds in here, but it's a tough list I'll keep updating over the next few days, also they aren't in any particular order because that would be far too difficult :P
