Have not used him yet, but yea, does not make sense that he is so much lower than normal Sub.

Makes sense that Reptile has moved up a lot from his position in the list from the "guide" looking at the combos people are doing with him.

Sorry man, but that list just isn't all that right.

For instance, Cyrax.

Look at these combos, they take 1! bar, and are SUPER easy to pull off.

Cyrax 13-14 hit - 48-53%

Plus, he has his bomb trap..

I'd explain it, but this does a better job, and a video tutorial.

Bomb trap
Pretty much, Cyrax is " top tier " in the hands of good players. All in all, it all depends on how you use the characters. An acclaimed " low tier " character could have the potential to be " top tier " in the hands of an experienced player.
That's why i'm not one for ranking characters, based on move sets and combo potential. Now speaking in terms of placing a character in a " tier bracket " based on the character being broken, that's a different story.

Your list is all kinds of wrong. Where did you "find" this... because it appears to me that you just took what the Prima guide says and tweaked it a bit.

Quan and CSZ are definitely not high, but I think they're better than what people are saying.

People may call me crazy, but Smoke may very well be mid-tier. He doesn't have a great close-pressure game (comparatively). Solid turtling can give him a terrible headache.

Reptile is almost certainly top five. I don't know how anyone can reasonably say otherwise.

Chill man. I can't even remember the site (Google MK tiers, you will get some opinions). I never said I agree with this, just thought this is a fun topic to debate. So why don't you make one yourself and then everyone can tell you how "wrong" it is?

BTW, how is this list similair to the Prima guide? Except that it has all the same characters(duh) ?

100% Agree with this. This exactly my opinion of Smoke; Great when someone tries to blindly attack and pull of specials, not so great against remotely good defense.

Also to people laughing at Kabal rated top here, go watch some of Reo's gameplay and think again.

At this time the only things that can be said in relation to tier lists are:

i) Baraka is bottom tier

ii) Cyrax, Kung Lao, Kabal are top tier

All the rest is up for debate.

Raiden, Reptile, Nightwolf and Scorpion are also quite near the top from what I have played and seen.
