Sigh. Didn’t I just do one of these?
The Next Generation of Tank Teams
The Ryuune and Saria based teams that I mentioned last time were added to the leader list at A+. This isn’t a huge surprise, but is this really where they should be ranked? In terms of being able to clear content they can do just about everything, but if that was all that mattered then shouldn’t Lucifer be on the list somewhere? If it’s about consistency, that’s a pretty vague measurement, but I can’t imagine they’re much less consistent than a few of the S-tier leads, especially when skill is factored. I guess they felt that these teams were better than Beelzebub-RSonia — and they are, significantly — so they had to rank them higher, but I personally feel Beelzebub shouldn’t even be on the list anymore. But meh, it’s all just nitpicking. A+ or A doesn’t really matter anymore; the only part of this list that really matters is S.
HKali A+ Lead, S Sub
Once again, no surprise here. As subs, I doubt the Kalis will ever be anything except S since their board change is basically a requirement to run rainbow teams. They really had no choice but to give her an A+ grade as a leader as that’s where LKali and Levi are. I had a bit of a problem with all three of them being ranked A+, but upon further inspection it makes sense. Almost all of the A+ tier have fairly low ATK multipliers when compared to the S tier, the exceptions being ranked A+ because they lack utility.
Liu Bei: The End of an Era
This is a sad day for me, but it was actually a long time coming: Liu Bei has finally lost S-tier sub status. Upon his release, Liu Bei propelled my Verdandi into the endgame, being able to clear everything except Challenge Dungeon Lv10s. With the advent of Juggler-initiated power creep and more difficult content being released, Liu Bei hopped from Verdandi to Bastet teams, but never really was a great fit. Uevo Vishnu was the stake through the heart, being better in almost every way imaginable.
RIP Liu Bei o7
That Dark Bias (Again)
Dark is 45% of the S and SS leads and 34% of the entire leader list. It’s 44% of the S subs and 26% of the entire sub list. Wood had its day in the sun with Liu Bei, but dark has quickly and decisively regained its throne. Meanwhile, water is wondering when it’s turn is coming.
Should Be Upgraded
Ares is simply a beast. He’s the best sub for the best fire leader and is great in dupes. He should definitely be S-tier, swapping places with Cao Cao. If Liu Bei and Kagutsuchi are A+, I see no reason why Cao Cao should still be S-tier.
