Video game tiers is benefits and perks that players get an edge on. For example, fighting games have tier list characters ranging from high damage and low defense. Tiers can shape the way players use these characters. Popular fighting games have different tiers based on skill sets and attributes. Notable games like Tekken 7, Street Fighter V, King of Fighter XIV and many more have tiers. Super Smash Bros Ultimate might have tier list based on how they’re used. In Street Fighter V, some player pick Guile, Kolin or Abigail which you can put in a tier list. Sometimes depending on the character you pick can be on the list. Back to Street Fighter V, Abigail is very strong but slow movement. Which tier will Abigail I think it will be D tier.
D tier is below C, B and A which is below average. Guile is C tier and he is a charge character. His Sonic Boom and Somersault give his average damage. Kolin is C tier as well with a cytokinesis moves. Those are three example of Street Fighter V but what about Tekken 7. Tekken 7 characters Jin Kazuma, King and Lucky Chole have tiers. Lucky is E tier which her attack is weak but very acrobatic movement. King is B tier combining with his chain throw and adaptable movement. Jin Kazuma is A tier with Mashima style combat. The King of Fighter XIV time, Tung Ru Fue is E tier which his lack of command throw and range of his attack. Clark Steel is D tier throws is very power but slow movement. Geese is B tier with his counter and pompous attacks.
