Flash releases his Season 4 early impressions tier list for Street Fighter 5: Arcade Edition

We're close to two weeks into the Season 4 meta of Street Fighter 5: Arcade Edition. It's during this period of time where there are no Capcom Pro Tour events going on so the competitors have the opportunity to figure their game plan for the season.

Which characters will be top tier and will have the most frequent appearances at tournaments? The newest addition to the roster, Kage, could have a large impact on the tournament meta.

Earlier today, Flash released his early impressions tier list for Season 4. Notably, Flash is a competitor that came in 50th place with 261 points during the last Capcom Pro Tour season.

It appears that Flash believes that the nerfs have hit Abigail fairly hard as the character now resides in the lower half of his tier list. Meanwhile, Alex, Vega, and Ed can be found at the very bottom. Some things may never change with Street Fighter 5, it seems.

If Flash's predictions end up being accurate, then it looks like combatants like Rashid, M. Bison, Ibuki, Akuma, and Menat should remain fairly strong. Of course, it looks like fighters like Kage, Zangief, Blanka, and Karin are leaving some sort of impression too as they are in the upper half of the tier list.

Finally, there's a good chance that Ryu might be more common this time around. Flash's tiers put him in the middle of the pack. We'll have to see how things shape up over the course of 2019.
