Some of our regulars have put together this tier list based on experience, knowledge, but mostly a lot of theorycap..bat... GOD TIER: -none- TOP TIER: -Pyroak -Revenankh -Skulloton -Syclant MID TIER: -Arghonaut -Colossoil -Cyclohm -Fidgit -Kitsunoh -Stratagem LOW TIER: -Krilowatt -Vitalimar GARBAGE TIER: -none- Unlike Pokemon, a fighting game tier list if often based on how well a character is perceived to perform against every other character in the game. For example, Pyroak is where he is because he doesn't really have any bad match ups. Although he won't dominate any character by a large margin (except maybe one), he's just so consistent and solid, there's no reason to put him anywhere but in the top tier. Revenankh's only bad matchup is Pyroak, this is made up for by the fact that he has a huge advantage over everyone else once he gets the knockdown. Playing against Revenankh forces you to be very sharp at all times and most matches are at least slightly in his favour. I'm not so sure about Skulloton's placement, personally. He's been getting some attention lately, and it's possible he may even find himself in a tier by himself if a dedicated player followed through breaking him. He has tools for every situation and do can crazy damage. His low health and high execution barrier hold him back somewhat, but can be worked around. Although Krilowatt has some very good matchups (Stratagem), he finds himself in Low, I believe, because of his his somewhat one-dimensional offensive game. If you can counter his Dives and block his cross ups, there's very little he can do to pressure you. Vitalimar finds himself where he is, ostensibly, because of his low damage output and weakness to good anti-air options. These two factors, coupled with his complete lack of defensive options, means he can have trouble with bulky or defensive characters (Colossoil and Cyclohm come to mind). Despite this, his success or failure depends on the player's ability to mix up his offense effectively, to bait out responses and punish. Despite his apparent weaknesses, Vitalimar can win without taking a lick of damage if his opponent simply guesses wrong. What do you guys think? It'd be helpful if you can back up your ideas on tier placements, as we'd love to hear your opinions on the matter.
