iDom shares his latest Street Fighter 5 tier list including Luke

Street Fighter 5 has reached its roster limit as Capcom has now implemented every last one of the game's 45 total characters, and Capcom Cup 2019 champ, Derek "XSET|iDom" Ruffin, has offered the internet his tier list opinions on all of them.

The game's newest character, Luke, is definitely turning heads at the moment as he's come out of the gate red hot and performing very well. See where iDom places him as well as his go to main characters, Laura and Poison, below.

The New York based player divides the cast into four distinct tiers: S, A+, A, and B. There are nine characters in the first, 13 in the second as well as the third, and then the remaining 10 make up the fourth.

Luke does make it into the S tier category, but fails to reach the top 5 as Ruffin places him in seventh overall between Poison and Guile. We'll also note here that he puts Dhalsim, a character who has been creeping up tier lists for a few years now, in fourth place overall.

We have to suppose this placement is in part influenced by iDom's regular encounters with Arturo "TS|Sabin" Sanchez at the Next Level Battle Circuit weekly tournament. Sanchez is one of the few players to regularly give iDom trouble, and actually defeated him in a 3-0 Grand Finals sweep this week.

This placement for Sim is notably different from the last iDom tier list we got where the Indian fighter placed 13th. Abigail also saw a fairly lofty fall, but Ken appears to be the most improved in iDom's eyes as he's rocketed up from bottom 10 to top 15.
