Who are the top 10 characters in Street Fighter 5? The great EventHubs tier list extravaganza - part three

Eventhubs Podcast episode 61

Posted by John 'Velociraptor' Guerrero • July 24, 2019 at 7:55 p.m. PDT

It's been a grueling three weeks but we're here at the end of our EventHubs Street Fighter 5 collaborative tier list. Catalyst and I have welcomed both MajinTenshinhan and DreamKing on for three episodes as the four of us share our views on all of SF5's characters, and today we've reached the top 10.

Before we get too far into it we want to take a second to highlight the r/SF Radio podcast. They're a very worthwhile listen as they cover a lot in the world of fighting games, often bringing on lesser-known, but very interesting guests that have something new to bring to the conversation.

Some of our top 10 characters were easy picks that most all of us agreed on, but others are oceans of violently turbulent waves that make it almost impossible to see eye to eye on. G is, (as we've seen him be as much in the past) one of those house-dividers.

Even when there's some mutual agreeance on certain characters, being able to articulate the specifics in a way that all four speakers can digest can still prove challenging. In any case, it should be a fairly fun ride for listeners.

For your convenience we've included timestamps for each of the 10 combatants we cover today. Obviously said stamps are going to serve as spoilers if you're wanting to find out our order in realtime, so don't scroll too far beyond the embed here if you're interested in maintaining the surprise. We've also included each of our individual rank orders further below so you can see where each of us is coming from.

If you haven't already heard our first two episodes, wherein we run through the bottom 10 roster members and then the 15 mid-tiers, you can find part one right here and part two right here. You'll definitely want to check out those episodes before delving into this one.
