Fighting game tier lists are a dime a dozen; truth be told are just references and guidelines, not the bible truth. However, they can be a great asset for those wanting to win by using the best characters with the best fundamentals and tools for dominating the game.
Case in point: this recent SoulCalibur 6 tier list from Singapore’s top players Jovian “Shen Chan” Chan and Raymus “Shen Yuan”. Here it is:
God Tier: Raphael, Mitsurugi
Top Tier: Siegfried Azwel, Xianghua, Ivy, Seong Mina, Groh, Yoshimitsu, Kilik, Talim, Voldo
Mid Tier: Maxi, Nightmare, 2B, Zasalamel, Cervantes, Sophitia, Geralt, Taki
Mid Tier, Has Weaknesses: Astaroth, Tira
Keep in mind that this is a tier list crafted by pro players based on their tournament experiences on a local and overseas perspective. Jovian Chan also put in his own 2 cents over some picks, particularly for Groh, Mitsurugi, Yoshimitsu, Zasalamel, and Cervantes.
I’m down with this tier list; at least my mains Seung Mina and Sophitia are pretty much where they’re supposed to be. What do you guys and gals think?
