Tier List


  • S: Ryougen
  • A: Maya / Othello
  • B: Orju / Rail
  • C: Delga / Katze / Siely
  • D: Aleks

This is the list that the majority of East Coast players go by, though it's subject to change dramatically as we learn new things about the characters and as new patches for the game are released. The majority of players agree without a doubt that Ryougen is top tier. Maya is often considered fairly high on the list by most players as well.


  • S: Ryougen
  • A: Maya
  • B: Delga
  • C: Othello / Rail
  • D: Siely / Katze
  • E: Orju / Aleksandr

This is the list that the Japanese are currently going by. This list was created by the Japanese players as a different understanding of the game is used for some of the character choices. Some Americans do not agree with some of the placings on the current list.
