Leffen immediately releases 2 different tier lists for PC and PlayStation versions of Guilty Gear Strive after winning Evo 2021

Earlier today, TSM|Leffen won the European Guilty Gear Strive tournament for Evo 2021, an online event. He managed to do this while being the only Chipp player in the top 16 part of the bracket.

Almost immediately after his prestigious victory, Leffen then went to Twitter to release a tier list for Guilty Gear Strive. Actually, he released two tier lists for the game. One is for the PC version of the game while the other is for the PlayStation 4. The major difference between these two versions is the input lag that's present on the PlayStation 4.

Arc System Works confirms connection between 'Hamburger Sheriff' and Goldlewis Dickinson in latest Guilty Gear Developer's Backyard

For some time, it was widely believed by many Guilty Gear fans that the "Hamburger Sheriff" from the Neo New York stage in Guilty Gear Xrd and Goldlewis Dickinson from Guilty Gear Strive were one in the same. The resemblance is uncanny, but Goldlewis Dickinson has never been seen enjoying an infinite number of hamburgers in Strive's story mode or during gameplay.

As it turns out, there is a connection between these two characters, but Goldlewis Dickinson and the Hamburger Sheriff are not the same person. According to Arc System Works in the seventh Developer's Backyard entry for Guilty Gear Strive, the character seen spectating in the Neo New York stage is the elder brother of Goldlewis.

'Sol is broken' - Nemo places Mr. Badguy two tiers above the rest of the Guilty Gear Strive roster in his new tier list

One of the top Japanese Street Fighter players, Naoki "WR|Nemo" Nemoto, has been spending recent weeks playing the new Guilty Gear Strive and has come forward with a tier list for the game's 16 roster members.

While he admits he's not a Strive expert and surely needs a bit more time before he understands all its characters thoroughly, he's already more than comfortable asserting that poster boy Sol Badguy is very broken.

Two characters give Ky Kiske far more trouble than everyone else in Guilty Gear Strive according to pro player Kizzie Kay's match up chart

Ky Kiske isn't exactly one of the most powerful characters in Guilty Gear Strive, but you sure as hell can't count him out... at least, when it comes to most match ups.

One of the United States' top Guilty Gear players, Panda|Kizzie Kay, recently posted a video in which he orders a match up chart for Ky and discusses the particulars of Ky's advantages and disadvantages with each individual roster member. In the end, he winds up saying that there are only two characters that Ky has an absolutely abysmal time against.

Think Anji Mito is bad in Guilty Gear Strive? Check out the highest ranked online player showing the dancer's potential

Anji Mito is often said to be a low tier in Guilty Gear Strive. At best, Anji Mito could be a mid tier, but competing against Sol Badguy in this game is no easy task. Though the dancer is armed with some rather interesting mix ups, a lot of characters are capable of just disrespecting his options.

While GreenTea appears to be a Zato-1 main primarily, his Anji Mito is certainly no slouch. Evidently, GreenTea is a player worth paying attention to seeing as how he was able to achieve the highest online rank in July 2021.

'Believe in this Behemoth Typhoon' — HiFight's Goldlewis compilation showcases gameplay in the Celestial Floor for Strive

In this Behemoth Typhoon, Goldlewis Dickinson joins Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

Guilty Gear Strive's newest character Goldlewis Dickinson has emerged as one of the more unique fighting game combatants in recent history, but I doubt Arc System Works would choose him to be their representative for something like Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.

That didn't stop Midnight from doing just that, however, by cleverly editing together a video with the big military man taking a stock off of Mario, which plays out probably exactly as you'd imagine.

Goldlewis Dickinson already has a multitude of touch of death combos and not just against Chipp and Millia either

Big damage and red life bars are two of Guilty Gear Strive's most defining features at the moment, and the game's first DLC character, Goldlewis Dickinson, is certainly a big boy with big boy damage.

Though he's only been available like a day now, Italian fighting game player AaronMan Pazzo already discovered a multitude of touch of death combos using Goldlewis, and many of them require few resources to pull off.
