Updated personal tier list for KOFXIII
EX Iori is in the S tier now… because, the player can resort to many play styles with the likes of Iori much like you could with 98… sort of. A very nice QCFx2+P which is a nice finisher for 1 stock combos and damaging! Beautiful to watch! Nice variety of HD combos and tools. The resident swiss army knife! Use with caution!
Robert is bumped up a tier. Why? Ask Air Lancer and cygnus for more information - a standard character through and through. (Despite seeing him almost every time I go online). Lots and lots of helpful command moves, too.
Elizabeth… Betty goes up one tier. She is very solid, does a lot of damage easily, two DM’s for a good cause, several counter moves, quick meter building… and last but not the least, she possesses unique mobility.
Saiki goes back down because he suffers the same problem as Leona does: The majority of his special move aren’t even safe at all. Also, Saiki needs to rely heavily on his zoning tools to be super effective.
Goro is in the A tier area now. He has several anti-air options, easy combos, and he is a very good grappling, much like Vice and Clark is. (Especially Clark 8-). I swear, there is something about Clark destroying people with his auto-guard throws in general that just makes me laugh… even if I’m the one suffering from it because the way he attacks is funny to me).
Ash is bumped down a tier - Not that it means much… His normals are kind of stale, however.
Again… if there are any problems please feel free to make corrections about the said characters (I got a feeling I should elaborate on Betty’s, Leona’s, and Goro’s placement a bit more). Just so you guys know… Mature is on the brink of getting bumped up one tier too… her tools are really nice. But, she lacks command moves…!
