    So, over the course of this month. I'll be changing up some of the things via reviews, and some of the other things on the section.

    1: Top 5 Units of The Month is on Hiatus: I wanted to do this cause I generally don't like the idea of putting a unit who's a tier below a unit cause in a sense it still doesn't make people want that unit. If I were to do Top 5 Healers from this month. It wouldn't make people to be appreciative of Lenna who would be second place imo. Over Refia who is 6* and first. This is also the chance to sit back and let the new 6* meta fold itself out and see what it shapes into. You never know, we might get a random OP exclusive outta nowhere really.

    2: New Review Template: If you've not read any of the most recent reviews to kinda go more in depth instead of making 1-2 sentences as to why this skill may be good, or deemed as usable. There will also be new markings when a unit is selected to get it's 6* upgrade.

    Past: This will be the old text, stating the use, and why the skill was deemed as whatever it was supposed to do at it's 5* base form.

    Current[: This will be the new text to talk about how is that skill after it has reached 6* is it any better for the meta, or around the same etc etc. Some skills may not get both past, and current comparisons to the meta as either they don't change the unit to much, or nothing of that unit has changed.

    3: Revamped UnitDex: This is still undergoing on what I want it to be but just to have a link of all the units don't do it for me I wanna try to make it more accessible really so it's gonna be changed up this month and will be talking with some people to get a general idea of what I want it to be like.

    That's about it really. Stay tuned for the changes. :]

    Thanks again for the good work Jet!

    Regarding your "fair comparison " concern, maybe one way would be to have a "transition table": while there aren't so many 6 stars, you can have one table for 6 stars and one for 5 stars. In the latter table, you would include 6* units but only in their 5* form (eg: how well does a 5* Refia compare with a 5* Lenna?).

    Appreciate your hard work. The reviews have been very illuminating and have helped me make acquisition decisions.
