While preparing for EVO 2013, Xian of Desperation Move and Mad Catz put together a tier list for the Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition ver. 2012 cast. This list charts the entire roster of characters, so check it out below to see his thoughts on how they shake out.
Obvious characters like Fei Long, Cammy, and Akuma sit atop the list, but he also ranks relatively uncommon fighters like Sakura and Yun fairly high, the latter of which dominated when he was introduced in Arcade Edition but fell from grace after the ver. 2012 update. Also interesting is his placement of Sagat, which is no doubt influenced by Leslie’s strong representation of the character in Singapore.
Feel free to provide your own opinions in the comments.
