Does it even matter? The game is dead and there's no tournaments, netplay is dead as hell too so unless you have locals who are super dedicated to it, just play whoever you like and fits your playstyle.

Except Robert and Maxima, they're trash (At high level), but again, that shouldn't be a concern to you.

If you need to know: Karate, Kim, EX Iori, Hwa, and Benimaru are the best in the game. People claim that the game is balanced enough to where it doesn't matter who you pick, which isn't entirely wrong, certainly not at lower levels. Truth is though, you have to have (or at least prepare yourself for) at least one character who can do grossly high combo damage, or have really good normals to lead into damage, cause most other things are pretty weak in comparison to past games.

That said, XIII's pretty much done. Arcade scene is minimal due to competition from more appealing games, 98/FE and 02UM included. Minimal online scene cause, lol SNK netcode. No offline scene because nobody plays KoF. No updates to keep the game fresh. Rip. We told them how important quality netplay was.

I don't know if this is worth a bump, but is there a tier list for these KOF games:

94, 95, all versions of 98, 99, 2000, and 2001.

Again, this is all for curiosity and I can't find accurate ones (99 for example has characters clumped together by tier)

2k and 2k1 woould be difficult, since the tiers depend a lot on the striker and team set up.

The only thing I know is that for the former, Another Iori, Seth, and Unknown are used the most (from personal experience on FC and via various YT vids), so I'm assuming they're the best strikers?

Striker Seth is ridiculous, both in 2000 and 01.

You'll have to look for the tier lists, I can give you a summary of best for each

94: AoF and Ikari teams. Former has more moves than everyone else (and Takuma's Gale Kick-Fireball juggle dizzies), latter make use of a broken throw glitch.

95: AoF team again, Kim, Mai. Might be missing a couple others, 95's a nasty game where everyone can do damage. Kyo's can-can kick has an infinite glitch

98OG: Kyo, Iori, Chizuru, Daimon
98UM: Krauser, Iori
98FE: Not sure tbh, 98UM wasn't quite as popular as vanilla and isn't much info on FE

99: Memory's fuzzy, I just know Mai is really good. Strikers suck in that game

2000: More about strikers than actual team members, kind of a copout answer for I don't know. Striker Seth

2001: Iori has a rekka infinite glitch, Maylee is real good too, Striker Seth

Let's make Mai great again in XIV :)

I also heard Kensou was borked.

I can only find the shoryuken tier lists, which sometimes aren't reliable. Which characters are pants?

yeah, kenosu's infinite is really easy in 99 and so is kula's in 2k1, so you can assume top tier for them because of that.

joe striker otgs, which makes a lot of easy 100% combos possible , like do a grab, otg toa  combo that ends on a grab, otg again to same combo. pretty much any bnb combo that can make p2 take a hard fall (i.e. makes him unable to tech roll) can be extended to the same combo using joe as striker.

  • A long time around.
99: Kensou and King rule here. Mai is supposedly really good but I've never seen it. Ralf is also supremely underrated and could very well be top.

00: King rules here but I hear Kula and K' are at the top as well. King is undisputed top though if we aren't including strikers.

MAi is really good in 2k2 becuase of the kachousen recovery time and the speed of her dms. abou ralf, he has this big problem about his gameplay being pretty much the same in most kof versions to the point that fighting him can ebcome routinary.

Sorry for bump, but it was still on page 1.

I found a satisfactory list for 95, but Chin was kinda low. Any reason? I thought he was good.

There are no truly worthless characters in 95.

Just characters that aren't Kyo and Rugal :)

Another random bump.

Are the PS2 exclusive characters in XI any good? I only use arcade mode.
