More Street Fighter 6 tier lists are being released now that players are feeling more comfortable playing as and against the game’s latest DLC character, A.K.I.
This time, a group of some of Japan’s best competitors have gathered together to create a collaborative Street Fighter 6 tier list that does include a placement for A.K.I. Here is what Sako, Moke, Nuki, Uryo, Santarou, Kishiri, and Go1 think of the current character standings.
This collaborative tier list features only four categories. We have S rank, S-, A, and B rank, with no fighters falling below B here.
These seven top players have placed seven characters up into S rank. As one might expect, we see JP as #1, though some of the other placements are interesting.
Guile, who is often considered top tier but usually not in the top 3 is ranked #2 on their list, and someone like Ken — who is often considered either #1 in the game or #2 — sits at #4 here on this collaborative list.
Most surprisingly, though, we see Chun-Li placed at #3. All of the players involved with this list (short of Kishiri who I could not confirm) play Chun-Li at a very high level, so if there were ever a group of players who knew what they were talking about with this character, it would be them.
Chun-Li is a highly technical character in Street Fighter 6, and her steeper learning curve definitely turned some fans off from playing her early on. However, those who stuck with her continue to explore what all she has to offer, and she does have strong normals, good damage, and some tricky movement options to keep opponents on their toes.
As far as Street Fighter 6’s latest character goes, the gang placed A.K.I. at the very bottom of the list. While this may seem surprising, we did also see Nemo — the #3 ranked A.K.I. in the world — place her as a bottom two character earlier this week as well.
Check out Sako, Moke, Nuki, Uryo, Santarou, Kishiri, and Go1’s collaborative Street Fighter 6 tier list below, and let us know in the comments whether you agree or disagree with their placings.
