MASTERCUP (known for its 5v5 Tekken tournament series) has given us something to think about while we wait on June 2nd! Thanks to their organizational efforts, 20 top Japanese players have partnered together to form an official tier list for Version H of Tekken 7: Fated Retribution.
This list averages the character placings from these pros into the list below. Some previous top tiers (Steve, Hworang) have dropped slightly, whereas some shiny new faces have appeared at the top (Leo, Xiaoyu). Xiaoyu, in particular, is likely benefiting from the new engine, since she’s been gifted with arguably the best Rage Drive in the game. It’s amazing what an unseeable, safe, low combo starter can do for you on a 3D game’s tier list!

Of course, anything can change between Version H and console, particularly since Miguel, Eliza, Lee, and Kuma haven’t had a chance to shine yet.
What do you think about the new tier list? Any surprises? Anyone you think is too good, or too weak?
