A new tier list was released over the weekend, but this time it was for Street Fighter 5: Arcade Edition. Top-level Ken player, Chris Tatarian, shared his match up chart for his main fighter providing a look at how he feels the fiery Shoto does against the rest of the roster.

As you might expect, Chris' chart runs through the match ups Ken is worst at (at the top) and moves down toward his best match ups.

To kick us off, Chris lists the character match ups he feels are borderline 7-3 for Ken. The fighters are organized not only from top to bottom, but start left to right — meaning the severity of the match up is stronger on the left and lessens as it goes.

According to Chris, Karin is Ken's worst match up in Street Fighter 5 Season 4. Ken also struggles against known top tiers Akuma and Rashid.

As we see on the chart, Ken does do well against characters such as Cody, Abigail, Blanka, and Vega. He also stands on even ground against the likes of combatants such as Sagat, R. Mika, and Necalli.

Chris T. is a well established player in Street Fighter 5, which recent accomplishments including scoring a spot in Capcom Cup 2018, and doing very well there placing ninth in the stacked 32-man bracket.

"Ken can still rob in S4," Tatarian added on Twitter. "Ken is good, but his nerfs and failure to acknowledge and fix his inconsistent combos were too much for consistent tournament placings. I wanted to make this MU [chart] after giving S4 some time."
