Which 10 characters make up Street Fighter 5's upper mid tier in Season 5? EventHubs staff members offer differing opinions

Posted by John 'Velociraptor' Guerrero • July 25, 2020 at 4:31 p.m. PDT • Comments: 11

Welcome to the third of four EventHubs Street Fighter 5 tier list breakdowns. MajinTenshinhan, Catalyst, DreamKing, and I have shared our opinions on the bottom 10 and the lower mid-tiers of the game's fifth season, and we now delve into the characters who just missed making it into top 10.

These are fighters who most certainly can carry their own weight in tournament, but perhaps don't have as easy of a time scoring wins as the best of the best.

Each of us has compiled our own tier lists for Season 5 of SF5, and while there is a decent bit of overlap, we also see some pretty different views when it comes to a handful of characters. Both Catalyst and DreamKing had incredibly similar thoughts on this portion of the tier list as they only differed on a single spot (number 19).

Though he's been viewed as a lower-tier avatar for the majority of this game's life, Dhalsim actually appears in three of our upper mid-tier batches. It seems the fire-breathing yoga master has been creeping up the charts in recent times, as Majin was the only one of us who placed him in the bottom half of the cast.

Cammy, on the other hand, has been an easy pick for the top 10 for a long time. It seems she's finally been sufficiently nerfed, though none of us placed her any lower than top 15.

During the construction of these lists we were somewhat surprised to find a somewhat common inclination to place Ibuki outside of the top 10. Similar to Cammy, Ibuki has been one of the strongest for quite some time now. Though we haven't seen her much this year thanks to coronavirus (that's true for most characters) it seems she's fallen off fairly hard.

Check out each of our lists for characters 20-11 and then chime in to the comments with your thoughts and reactions. If you'd like to hear us discuss these choices in more detail, you can do so on this week's episode of the EventHubs Podcast.
