If I remember correctly, the tier list is something like
Karin (these two are undoubtedly the #1 and #2 spots respectively, every other spot in all the tiers is for no reason in particular)
Tier 4 (largely debatable)
I put a lot of people in bottom tier, because no one can really decide what the bottom tier is. Most people agree that Zangief and Sakura are the bottom tiers of the game, and some people will say that Chun and Alex go there, too. My personal opinion is that the low tier of the game are the ones that are largely meter dependant to do anything good, like Sakura, Yun, and Alex. Sakura is probably the worst character in this game, and the only bottom tier spot that I think everyone agrees on. I personally think that Chun and Gief are mid tier, and that Zangief is largely underrated, but most people will put Gief on bottom.
RE: Ingrid & Rose combos
The combos that people listed for Ingrid are alright - Ingrid is very much a runaway character. Try to keep people out with her projectiles and poke from behind them, and use her little Air Hurricane Kick to get out of tight spots. When you have meter, go for counters -> juggle into level 1 super. That’s pretty much the basics of Ingrid.
Rose’s B&B custom is something like… Activate -> OC.Mk x2 -> S. Hk x3 [OC.Mk x2 -> S. Hk x2 XN} -> C.Hk XX Aura Soul Throw. If that’s not it, it’s something similar.
RE: Anakaris and Jedah
Anakaris and Jedah have been regarded as top tier since day one, although some things are different now:
Anakaris used to be considered the flat out best character, but now that people are more acquainted with the game, he’s not put on quite as high a pedestal as he used to be. He’s still top, but definitely not indestructable.
Jedah used to be considered top by most people because really thought that J. Mp ruled everything. Nowadays, he’s considered top for the correct reason - he’s fucking insane.
Oh yeah, Red Lotus, if you’re interested in picking up Guy, I wrote an FAQ on him (available on GameFAQs) when I still played this game frequently. I got told by Jeron Grayson (one of the better fighting game players in the US, and one of the top CFE players in the US) that it was a really good FAQ, so I don’t feel wary about reccomending it to anyone, heh. Good luck.
