It has been almost two months since the release of Street Fighter 6, and anticipation is building for the upcoming Evo 2023 tournament, which promises to be one of the biggest tournaments of the year. The event will provide a clear picture of Street Fighter 6's current meta as players from all around the world gather to compete.
As a prelude to this momentous event, Saishunkan|Nemo has unveiled a tier list for Street Fighter 6. This tier list will undoubtedly generate interest as players speculate on how it might change following Evo.
According to Nemo, eight characters have made it into the highly coveted S tier. This indicates that Ken, Juri, Marisa, Guile, JP, Cammy, Luke, and Dee Jay are currently the strongest characters in the game, each with a significant chance of winning Evo this year.
While characters like Chun-Li, Blanka, Dhalsim, and Manon are also considered strong, players opting for these characters will need to exert more effort compared to those using characters in the S tier. Consequently, Nemo has placed them in the A tier.
Bringing up the rear of the tier list, Rashid and Zangief are positioned at the bottom. Their placement suggests that they are considered unknown factors. It is not surprising that Rashid finds himself in this category, given that he was recently introduced as a DLC fighter. However, it is worth noting that Nemo is unsure about Zangief's current standing.
