WayGamble is right on the nose.
Jin, Steve, and Lee are easy top tier. With work, Nina and Miharu can also be top. They’ve taken majors as well as Jin. I don’t think Steve, nor Lee has taken one.
Lei is bottom tier because they nerfed his damage pretty bad. Also, his HaHa Step has NOWHERE near the run-away capabilities it had before.
Julia is also, NOT top tier. She’s mid tier. Even those who play with her admit that. You’ve got to play extremely safe. Julia’s all about baiting CHs and setting up Mad Axes. She’s got a limited amount of safe moves, and gets killed by sidestepping. Christie also isn’t top tier because of her lack of safe, quick pokes.
Jin = frame advantage on everything, lock down, a killer wall game, and you make one mistake you lose 50%
Lee = quick, nice mixup, miss one move and lose 35%
Steve = rush and lock down, CHs lead to big damage, 1,2,1 is Jesus and you can do mad kinda of outside block or crouch stun set-ups
Nina = run-away bitch, hayashida, 1+4 = ubah
Ling/Miharu = great poking, awesome mix-ups, tiny
Heihachi’s d+1 keeps him out of the bottom tier, along with the fact that he has some decent moves. King is debatable. I’d say low mid tier.
