Guilty Gear Strive is powering through its second season with big events going down in the game basically every week still, but which characters are players using to actually win those tournaments?
Longtime fighting game pro BC|LordKnight set out to answer that question in his new Guilty Gear tier list by ranking the fighters based on their ability / probability to top brackets where he feels his opinions have changed quite a bit in recent months.
The first of them is the competitor now believes that Nagoriyuki is at the very top of the foodchain above even Happy Chaos, Ramlethal and Leo, but they are all the characters who take home the most gold medals currently.
LordKnight’s also expanded his thoughts to include 7 more fighters that are strong enough to close out tournaments as well, but he goes into detail as to why they’re not quite as powerful as the top tiers.
Those who ended up in the Relevant category are still characters he views as threats in a bracket while having difficult match ups in the tournament setting that makes it hard to win with them solo.
You can check out LordKnight’s full tier list for Guilty Gear Strive plus his video breaking down the loosely-ordered ranks below.
