Removing tier-4. With there being almost no movement on any of the lists this week, I took the opportunity to tweak the tiers again. With Game8 and GameWith compressing their tiers, it was about time the aggregate list did as well, resulting in the removal of the 4th tier. I also slightly lowered the weight AppMedia’s ranks have on the aggregate list since I personally value their opinion less than the other two. Finally, I created a minimum score to appear in the honorable mentions. This is to prevent cards that only appear in AppMedia’s S- tier and nowhere else from appearing there.
JP Aggregate Leader List β Changes of Note
Change: Added to 2
I’m a little surprised she isn’t tier-1, but she’ll be limited to tier-2 as long as she’s only top-ranked on one of the three lists.
In removing tier-4, I lowered the requirement for tier-3, thus Sakuya’s bump.
Considering U&T are basically a light Rukia, it’s surprising to see such a discrepancy in their grades. Then you compare the sub pools and it all makes sense.
New Card Holding Tank
New cards will be held here temporarily in an attempt to isolate the aggregate list from knee-jerk ratings.
While her sub pool is considerably worse than Xiang Mei’s (seemed impossible, but it’s true), she’s still strong enough to conquer endgame content. Unless I’m missing something and the various YouTube videos I’ve seen are just outliers, I expect her to appear somewhere on the other two lists next week. To be honest, dark didn’t need the help so her current power level seems fitting.
Game8 has a new section that evaluates new leads, but there’s no way to tell if these ratings have a bearing on whether they’ll appear in the ranking list proper. Xin Hua is currently rated an “A-” with her main weakness being the lack of good subs (duh?).

I’m surprised to see GKali near the top of the list.
