Then by your logic you should have seen less mitsuru and more SLab in top 8.

This, but also, uncommon matchups take longer to download. If I'm playing SLab and you're my 5th Mitsuru today, I'm already going to be in the right state of mind to tackle that matchup, whereas you likely will need some time to figure out what I'm throwing at you. Bo1 certainly favors me in that case.
But yeah obviously fewer sets = more random = means less.

no. you said SLab has more of a favor than mitsuru in a bo1 because SLab is more uncommon.
SBO run on a bo1 format. so you should see more SLab than mitsuru by that logic.

If you only look at top8 then you can come to those conclusions. 9 chie/yu/aegis qualified vs 1 naoto. I would argue that naoto underperformed. I would also argue that akihiko performence was just right. On the tier list he is placed as A tier. 4 qualified sounds about right. SBO was brought up because people were discussing that akihiko is actually bottom tier. I agree that no 1 tournament should be used to represent the tier list. Unfortunately SBO is the only tournament that is relevent in tier list discussions at the moment.

And you don't think top Kanji's and naoto's played against top mitsu/aeigis/chie/yu in the qualifiers? They did. And they lost.
You can't ask for well-thought-out changes off day 1, week 1, or mostly even month 1 play...and that's when the game is out and everyone's in the lab.-Mike_ZIf there's anything we do best, it's breaking games and then making everyone suffer with all the cheapness.-PersiaXOIf you're waiting for a fair & balanced game you're wasting your time. The best players exploit each game within the rules to win.-Alex Valle

Two 7:3's hardly counts as several.

So, I guess people have now discovered SMP combos with Aigis.
I haven't seen any videos yet, but they're trying to work out ways to loop Megido Fire.

So who's the "Wesker" of this game? I really don't feel like spending time labbing it up this time around

Mitsuru has no negative matchups and more than two 7-3 matchups.

I'm only a few days in, but everyone seems 7:3 against Yukiko right now.
Except Yousuke, that matchup is 12:-2.
Hopefully lab time will prove me wrong and she isn't as bad as my early analysis leads me to believe.

I'd say she's 4.5:5.5 to 4:5 against bothTeddie and Aigis.

I used to think Yukiko was bad but there are some insane players out there that made her work. She actually has damaging combos and some of the best corner pressure in the game, believe it or not...just takes some time to get it all together (compared to Mitsuru which is pretty much plug and play for big damage).

Syuuto says his worst matchups are Yosuke and Chie.
Take it as you will.

What is weird is I see a lot of tier discussion for a game that is really very balanced. Undoubtedly we are going to see fluctuations in the tier list as time passes.
What is shocking to me is there is little to nothing being said about particular match-ups on this board, Dustloop, or Mayonaka. Shouldn't we be really be investing our efforts into that discussion rather than "X character sucks because I said so" or SBO determines so? If we really take the time to examine these characters I think we can have a more worthy discussion at hand.
Very few games give characters so many unique tools and ways to change momentum and maximize damage the way this game does. Tiers are important but in a game like this it's not everything.
If SBO proves anything at all is a large portion if not all the cast are being used and to me that is a good feeling. This kind of results can aid in peoples confidence in their current character choice and can also help with the games longevity.
