Tiers for Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate launched on EventHubs

Posted by Jonathan 'Catalyst' Grey • May 5, 2014 at 6:12 p.m. PDT

We've launched a new game for our tiers app, Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate.

Users have the ability to vote on each of the game's match ups, plus there are new discussion areas where you can talk about each of the bouts. We've also included the newest character, Marie Rose.

If you're knowledgeable about Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate, please get in there and vote on the match ups you're familiar with.

Keep in mind this section updates once an hour, so keep checking back to see how the tiers are taking shape.

It's the wild west when a tier section is first launched, just a few votes can have a drastic impact on the list, but over time the picture gets much more defined and normalized. Please be patient as the list shapes up, and try not to freak out if things look a little odd at first.

We'll have tiers for another new game launched in the near future, usually every four or five days. Stay tuned.

Inb4 people complain about the list 5 minutes after it goes up because they don't read the story.

Love this game, glad it's getting the tier list treatment even though it's not as popular as other fighting games.

Question, Catalyst. Do you guys plan on implementing this for SFxT as well?

#2
Catalyst said on May 5, 2014 at 6:33 p.m.

Great question. The answer is yes. VERY soon.

I'd venture to say, if you like Capcom fighting games, you're going to be quite happy with the next games we roll out for tiers...

I know what it is like to play games with low population. PlayStation All stars tier list Catalyst ?

Pretty glad to see just how much the tiers app has expanded to other games, especially this one since it's pretty underrated but pretty fun to play.

Hoping also for SF X TK, as well as UMvC3 and P4A.

More like " Only look at the negatives which aren't really negatives and has never played this game 5 ultimate"

STILL no Marvel vs Capcom 3? WTF?

#12
FakeSypha said on May 5, 2014 at 7:16 p.m.

Thanks for adding this up! Didn't see that coming :D

Sadisticcupid said on May 5, 2014 at 7:20 p.m.

btw catalyst, if gen fu gets something like 10-0 match up, it's not someone trolling it's around correct(i'm kidding but good lord that man needs a nerf)

AAAHHHAAAHHHAAA!!! No.

PSASBR list is coming, yes.

It's a ways further out than some of the other titles, but coming in the reasonably near future.

#17
Taizuku said on May 5, 2014 at 7:43 p.m.

People should play DoA more.

#18
Catalyst said on May 5, 2014 at 7:54 p.m.

The majority of the remaining Capcom games are coming soon VERY soon.

We wanted to show love to the other communities before we hit most of the Capcom games, especially since the SSF4 AE v2012 tiers were front and center for so long.

With DoA5U in place, we've launched the majority of the tournament games still played in our scene now, with a few exceptions which we'll be circling back to get.

Anyway, since you're asking "When's Marvel?" the answer is, "Not long."

#19
Galletano said on May 5, 2014 at 7:54 p.m.

Definitely, that tier list is a mess right now Tina in us the #1 spot.

#20
iloveolives said on May 5, 2014 at 8:05 p.m.

Doa5u is a good game.

The more people that participate the more "accurate" the list.

#21
Requiem said on May 5, 2014 at 8:45 p.m.

Voted. It currently is a bit of a mess (it has good characters at the top, but the character widely considered best by top players is 11th), but that will hopefully even out in time. Cool feature for the DOA community!

#22
synce said on May 5, 2014 at 8:45 p.m.

Ayane and Christie are easily top, but the Virtuas shouldn't be that high. I'm chalking it up the typical DOA player not being familiar with their movelists

#23
TheLaw said on May 5, 2014 at 8:48 p.m.

Most people ignore the truth. Face it, you've never played the game before.

#24
icejohn said on May 5, 2014 at 9:55 p.m.

You guys are awesome! Thanks again.
This should be interesting....

#25
StriderHiryu said on May 5, 2014 at 10:19 p.m.

Waiting for this list to be revamped. Kokoro may not be high tier, but she certainly isn't bottom tier either.

#26
omglonghair said on May 5, 2014 at 11 p.m.

dont play the game but im glad to see ayane up there
shes mai waifu haha

#27
Joutari said on May 6, 2014 at 12:14 a.m.

Is Eliot really as bad in Ultimate as this list says he is...? I find it...really hard to believe.

#28
Sadisticcupid said on May 6, 2014 at 1:01 a.m.

If you ask every member including eliot players on fsd to make you a tier list, every last place character will be eliot

#29
Galletano said on May 6, 2014 at 5:39 a.m.

He is not bad it's just that a match up against a top tier is just more difficult for him, The game is very balanced.

@omglonghair
Well a character that you fiscally like is very good at this game, why don't you give DOA and Ayane a try you'll have a lot of fun.

Dagwood420 said on May 6, 2014 at 8:25 a.m.

Here's the Real doa5 tier list Kappa: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v21...

Requiem said on May 6, 2014 at 9:36 a.m.

Actually, most would argue Ein. Maybe these days Marie or Leon, I guess.

@SaitoKojina Actually, Akira might really be more T10 than T5, and even then you could argue the 10, from where many characters aware of his tricks sit.
