Very early Super Street Fighter 4 tier list speculation FallenAngel pointed out a new tier listing for Super Street Fighter 4 which appeared on this Japanese wiki site.


Important disclaimer: The game hasn't even been out officially for 30 days yet, so the listing below needs to be taken with a grain of salt, then a teaspoon, hell, you should probably just dump the whole container of salt on this.

Tiers are an extremely debatable subject — even when a game has been out for years — and considering how early in it's infancy Super Street Fighter 4 is, this should tell you right off you can't take this list at face value.

But the listing below gives you an idea of what some of the community thinks of the various characters at this stage of the game.

Also, keep in mind that Abel was rated very highly in the early days of vanilla Street Fighter 4 and moved down considerably over time, while C. Viper started out near the bottom and moved up to a respectable position.

Tiers can and do change.

A+
Rufus, Abel, Sagat, Guile
A
Dhalsim, M. Bison (Dictator), Ryu, Ken, Balrog (Boxer), Chun-Li, Ibuki, E. Honda, Akuma
B+
Dee Jay, T. Hawk, C. Viper, Zangief, Dudley, Seth, Rose
B
El Fuerte, Adon, Vega (Claw), Blanka, Cammy, Cody, Juri, Gouken
C+
Hakan, Guy, Fei Long, Gen, Makoto, Sakura
C
Dan

It's also worth noting that IPlayWinner.com recently posted their own tier listing, compiled by some notable names in the community, although there's been a lot of discussion back and forth as to how accurate it is.
