Now that EVO 2017 -- the largest fighting game tournament of the year -- is all said and done, players are taking the time to step back and survey the current Street Fighter 5 Season 2 landscape.

On the latest Kachitagari TV broadcast, three of Japan's best players sat down to compile a tier list. RB|Bonchan, GRPT|Haitani, and GRPT|Fuudo discussed the current rankings, organizing the characters from A to D rank.

As we might expect, characters such as Balrog and Ibuki find themselves sitting comfortably in the A category. We also see Akuma, who EVO 2017 champion FOX|Tokido feels is the best in the game, among the top contenders.

On the lower end of the spectrum, we have a character like F.A.N.G., but surprisingly he isn't ranked dead last. Fuudo, Bonchan, and Haitani have him placed in C rank among characters like Laura and Nash.

This tier list was brought to our attention by Javits, who compared it to his own tier list made about a month ago. We can see that Javits' top five lines up pretty closely to Japan's list.

It goes without saying that tier lists aren't the definitive word on how good or bad each character is, but do give us a great look at what the world's best players and the FGC as a whole think about how the roster stacks up against itself. Check out the tier list below and let us know if you agree in the comments below.
