Uhm… I forget the exact extend tier list, but it was something like:
Dumb Tier: Ragna (He’s actually just S, but he’s so much EASIER Than the rest of S tier that he gets his own special callout from me.)
S Tier: Arakune, Hakumen,Taokaka,Valkenhayn
A Tier: Anyone not in another tier.
“B” Tier: Makoto, Tager, Tsubaki
No sorting within tiers (it’s Alphabetical).
I don’t think anyone is particularly known for a given type of combo, though some of the lower tier characters have bad air-to-air combo potential. (Tager, Tsubaki, Platinum, maybe Makoto, dunno).
