COS-117's PSASBR FFA TIER LIST (UPDATED 2/2)

[ Edited ]
59 replies 4963 views Edited Feb 3, 2013

Note that this list only depicts my opinion of how effective each character is in a Free For All setting and should not be referred to for other fields of play. This list is open to change as play styles adapt, players learn, and changes are made.

 

S Tier: KratosRaidenNathan Drake

 

A Tier: Sly Cooper, Fat Princess, Evil Cole MacGrath, Cole MacGrath, Ratchet and Clank

 

B Tier: Toro, Parappa, Big Daddy, Sackboy, Sweet Tooth, Dante, Jak and Daxter

 

C Tier: Colonel Radec, Nariko, Spike

 

D Tier: Sir Daniel Fortesque, Heihachi Mishima

 

TBP Tier: Kat, Emmett Graves

 

 _________________________________________________________________________________________________

 

Tier Explanation

 

S tier: These characters can generate AP very well, have extremely efficient supers, and can effectively control a crowd.

 

A tier: These characters can generate AP well, have efficient supers, and can hold their own in a crowd.

 

B tier: These characters can do all that A tier characters can but just not AS efficiently, or really excel in one or two of the listed traits.

 

C tier: These characters either have a more difficult time generating AP or have average supers, but can be effective in certain matchups.

 

D tier: These characters cannot generate AP as well as the other characters or lack supers that are effective enough to keep up with the rest of the cast.

 

To Be Placed tier: These characters have either been newly released, have undergone a change, or are just difficult to truly understand their place and will be placed once a solid opinion has been made.

Well, just for Fat Princess to have avoided C Tier makes this the most accurate list so far. Its clearly well thought out, but at the same time very accessible for all players to understand.

I agree with most placements, though the big one I don't is with Raiden in his own top tier, but thats just me personally, and my reasons why are probably not relevant - I've faced a LOT of Raiden players, and one expert Raiden player in particular and feel I have an insight into that character's faults/moves that theres some element of predictability with him that I don't have with others. Not to mention I main Fat Princess and I think her moveset makes for a good, fair match up whereas when playing as say Sir Daniel, the pressure is most definitely on!

I really enjoyed your tier explanation as well, all tier lists should come with this, it actually made this worth reading. :smileywink:

I'd say bump Toro up to A, dude has some really really easy loops and combos and has a tool for every situation be it 1v1, FFA or 2v2. He takes a lot to learn (when to do his combos and whatnot anyway) but the way I stomp around with him it would pain me to see him at B :v

I do know I've beaten your Fat Princess a few times in 2v2 though! (Though your Jak got you guys the winning point... humph)

Kratos needs to be S tier, Raiden seems more fair in a fight than him.

Kratos:

  • High AP gain
  • Powerful supers
  • Good combat range AND speed
  • A move for any situation
  • Moves take priority over most others
  • Attacks target a whole crowd rather than a single enemy
  • Kratos does not have to commit to an attack/combo, and instead can turn on a dime and slash any which way

Dude's a beast.
