Leffen releases new Guilty Gear Strive tier list for version 1.09

Patch 1.09 for Guilty Gear Strive was recently released. This update not only gave players access to Jack-O, but it also introduced a number of balance adjustments that provided buffs and nerfs to the roster.

This has prompted TSM|Leffen to release a new tier list for Guilty Gear Strive. According to Leffen, his main character of choice, Chipp Zanuff, was the fighter that was hurt the most by nerfs in this latest patch.

Despite the nerfs, it seems that Chip Zanuff still resides in Leffen's S tier category, albeit at the very bottom of it. The tier positions appear to be ordered, but Chipp's position is tied with Potemkin's.

Though Sol Badguy also received his fair share of nerfs, the character is still seen as being a step above the rest of the cast. However, Leffen notes that the gap between Sol Badguy and everyone else has been lessened as a result of the patch.

At the moment, Leffen is unsure of where to place Jack-O, but he theorizes that she's probably somewhere between SS tier (where Sol Badguy is) and A tier. Goldlewis Dickinson is stated to either be in A tier or B tier, the bottom 2 categories on Leffen's list.

Before creating his tier list, Leffen created a list that judges how much each character was buffed and nerfed. Those that received the most helpful buffs are at the top of this list. Meanwhile, those at the bottom were hurt the most by the nerfs.

After Leffen won the Guilty Gear Strive tournament for Evo 2021 Europe Online, he released 2 tier lists (one for the PC and one for the PlayStation 4). For convenience, these lists can be found below for those that would like to see how tiers have shifted since the last patch.
