With the latest DLC in Mortal Kombat 11 came a balance update that accompanied a new fighter, NightWolf. This patch made several changes to a plethora of different characters.

FOX|SonicFox created a new tier list over on YouTube that runs through where he believes each character stacks up now. Looking comparatively at our Mortal Kombat 11 tiers section, we can see how SonicFox feels several characters have climbed and dropped after the update.

Anytime a patch drops for MK11, you know that everyone is hopping into the lab to figure out how much has changed in reality, not just on paper. Finding out who's still good and who has improved is essential.

This last patch was massive, as we have seen thus far. Some characters saw as many as 15 changes, with buffs and nerfs scattered throughout.

SonicFox only uses four of the six tiers listed: S, A+, A, and B tiers. On top of dropping each fighter into their respective category, the highly skilled NetherRealm Studios game player provides a breakdown per character explaining why he feels they secured the spot that they did.

The characters included are essentially the ones used in competitive play, and the list itself is based off of the competitive meta. Surprisingly, SonicFox's new number one character in the game is Liu Kang.

What do you think of SonicFox's tier list? Is it close to your personal opinion? Who's too high or too low? Let us know in the comments. Since this is SonicFox, be prepared for NSFW language in the video below.
