I have never lost to the Priest, but I have won a tournament with the Priest, so I rank him tier 2 because he is an adequate conveyor of healing spells and holy creatures.  In my experience, the tier 1 are the male Beastmaster, Forcemaster, Necromancer, and Priestess and the tier 3 are the female Beastmaster, Paladin, Siren, and the male Warlock.  Can a tier 3 beat a tier 1?  Yes, it just takes a little good luck on the part of the tier 3 player and a little bad luck on the part of the tier 1 player, and the tier 3 will beat the tier 1 if they are the same level of player (the more skilled player will usually win with a tested spellbook regardless of the tier unless the die gods decide to have fun with him).
Sir, you live in Rochester no? Well that's 5 hours away from New York so we need to have a match sometime.

We're discussing favorite mages. Let's get back on track and away from the Holy mage dispute.

This doesn't mean that he necessarily played a Wizard at GenCon any particular year.

I am Sailor Vulcan! Champion of justice and reason! And yes, I am already aware my uniform is considered flashy, unprofessional, and borderline sexually provocative for my species by most intelligent lifeforms. I did not choose this outfit. Shut up.

He's not the best post errata, but he's still Tier 1.

Zot I dont think you realize how strong the Academy Beastmaster is. He is clearly the one that rules in arena. You have no clue

Taking Spellbind away from the Wizard's Tower improved the game because tournaments stopped being a bunch of other mage optimized to kill Wizard's Towers.

agreed. the tower was not designed well at all. I think the wizard changes for both tower and training were extremely elegant. it was a perfect fix for both and allowed the various mages to flourish some and feel much more unique by comparison.

now that being said, they are all still inferior tier 2 and below of course. some tier 1 wannabes too.

I still don't believe in Tiers. My first day on the forums an idiot tried to convince me Wizards were the end all be all, and I beat skilled Wizard players left right and center. Didn't buy into it then, certainly don't believe it now.

The only Tier 1, Supreme Mage you need to believe in is this: Whatever Silverclawgrizzly happens to be playing at the moment!  8) 8) 8)
