Discord Tier List[]

A tier list is a list that ranks all characters in a certain game in order of their potential to win under 'competitive' conditions, assuming equal skill on the part of each player, based on analysis of the current metagame.

The following tier list was put together by a few selected community members via a voting platform and then updated by KING_TORHU. (Last Update 5.2)

Full details can be seen in the following link:
