We don't have a designated thread for tier lists.
Footage of FSX 2017 showed lots of exciting play and cool setups and such and I'm reevaluating my super nonimportant opinion on the tiers.
So let's talk about general Tier lists and match ups here!
Pengwndude's tier list (June 2017)
A-: Jaina, Val
B+: Setsuki, Rook, DeGrey
B: Geiger, Grave
?: Lum, Menelker
So I'm not really the must trustworthy opinion, but here it is. I think the tiers are very close, which is good! Every legal character was represented in FSX, though surprisingly Grave and Setsuki (I believe) had some of the least screen time on stream, as they either were knocked out relatively early or just weren't picked often, so I have the least data on them in turns of competitive tiers.
With Thelo's dominant Midori I put him on top. It seems that there's a bit of a counterpick game with Midori, Jaina, and Val, with the hypothetical counter of Jaina > Midori > Val, and all 3 of them hypothetically countering other people (J > R, M > D)
My top picks also correlate with the order of the FS tournament placements, so maybe it's just that those players are the best and not necessarily those characters, but as of now I will stand by saying that those 4 are still on the top.
Rook did surprisingly well in the tournament. Maybe I'm just biased and placed him higher than deserved, but for a game this "simple" he can still perform quite well. I don't have tons of data on match ups, but as of now I'm leaning on No one is too dominant over anyone else.
