Tier Z

What makes a Team 'Z Tier'?

Consistent Teams Offensively and Defensively. All Teams in this Tier have multiple Win conditions, so they can afford to make mistakes multiple times per Battle without their chances of victory decreasing.

Why this Tier?

Discussion:

Fusion Warriors are the best Offensive Team in the game and are contenders for the best Team in the game. SP Super Vegito PUR and SP Gogeta BLU are an incredibly deadly and consistent duo, so they will probably keep Fusion Warriors in Z tier for a long time.

Why this Tier?

  • Saiyan shares the same core as Fusion Warriors, with the exception of SP Angry Goku BLU, but with more bench options.

  • Sharing Synergy across every Z tier Team, Saiyan is able to form powerful Teams from any of those Tags.

Discussion:

Contrary to their genocide, the Saiyans are ever present. The Saiyan Tag is the most widely used Tag in the game and is comprised of several of the top Fighters like SP Super Vegito PUR, SP Angry Goku BLU and the Super Saiyan God Super Saiyans.

Why this Tier?

Discussion:

Son Family is redefining Team Synergy. Sharing support from Sagas Warriors, Hybrid Saiyans, Super Saiyans, and Saiyans, this Tag is likely to receive further support because the aforementioned Tags continue to receive powerful releases

Why this Tier?

  • SP Golden Frieza GRN is the pinnacle of Frieza Force power and the undisputed champion for this Tag, and SP FF FP Frieza YEL is the perfect partner for him as he can continuously be his bodyguard, while being strong Offensively as well.

  • The Ginyu Force additions made the Team much more versatile, both in Battle and Bench wise.

     

Discussion:

The Frieza Force Team has been power crept to the point of oblivion, only to become playable again with the release of SP Golden Frieza GRN. Now that the Ginyu Force has landed on Namek as well, and that Frieza has reached his 100% Form, this Team has enough workforce to face the Meta without fear.

Why this Tier?

  • SP Golden Frieza GRN and SP FF Coora BLU make a nightmarish Offensive partnership, especially against Saiyan Teams thanks to the former’s Anti-Saiyan Unique Ability.

  • Finally, they have a Tank on the Team, as SP FF FP Frieza YEL can function as a shield to the other two’s reckless Offense.

Discussion:

While Lineage of Evil still suffers from not having great Z-Abilities, its fearful Offense and recently gained Defense makes it a Z Tier Team. SP FF FP Frieza YEL’s color and toolkit make him one of the toughest Tank in the current Meta, and a much needed addition for this Tag.

Why this Tier?

  • SP Teen Trunks PUR brings more consistent Damage to the Team and more flexibility in Team Builds, as opposed to SP SSJ Kid Goten PUR that restricted this Team to only be composed by Son Family Fighters.

  • Sharing Fighters with Son Family, Super Saiyan, Fusion Warrior, Future, and Sagas Warrior, Hybrid Saiyans have kept this Tag healthy on the battlefield as well as the bench.

     

Discussion:

Hybrid Saiyans have tons of powerful Fighters and a multitude of Z-Buffers that can bench for other more powerful Tags. Now that they have enough Fighters to Build multiple very competitive Teams, nothing stands in their way.

Tier 1

What makes a Team 'Tier 1'?

High ceiling Teams that can perform very well in the Meta, however they are less consistent than Z-Tier Teams because of some of their flaws

Why this Tier?

Discussion:

This Team’s Defense is fantastic thanks to SP Android #17 PUR, who is a Tank that has no direct counters in the current Meta. Offensively, SP Perfect Cell YEL being optimal against Z Tier Fighters such as SP Super Vegito PUR and SP SSB Vegeta PUR, and SP Android #13 BLU being able to inflict absurd Damage by himself.

Why this Tier?

  • Future has changed shape to stay relevant in the Meta, with SP Teen Trunks PUR that allowed SP SSJ Gohan YEL to be relevant again.

  • The recent USTS #14 additions made the Team much more diverse, to the point it now has two very competitive Team Builds.

Discussion:

The times of Future reigning over the Meta may be over for now, but they’re looking better than the last few weeks since the addition of SP Teen Trunks PUR rejuvenates the Team Offensively. This Tag now has two possible Builds: a highly Offensive Future - Hybrid Saiyan Team, or a more Defensive Team revolving around SP Goku Black   PUR.

Why this Tier?

Discussion:

Super Saiyan is more Offensive than ever and resembles Vegeta Family thanks to the SP Vegeta BLU - SP Teen Trunks PUR combination. However, its lack of color diversity keeps it out from Z-tier.

Why This Tier?

  • Exploding onto the scene at a respectable Tier 2 position wasn’t enough for Vegeta and his small family. The release of SP Teen Trunks PUR keeps that momentum going to Tier 1 with his fantastic Support and Damage output. 

  • Pure rage translates to overwhelming Strike potential -- being the sole reason this Team will see play -- which is respectable in its own right as this Team fairs quite well on that Damage potential alone, forgoing the Defensive, Healing, and Control options that other Teams enjoy.

Discussion:

Still limited in Synergy and Team options, Vegeta Family still seems to keep pace with other top Teams with it’s overwhelming and consistent Strike Damage. SP Vegeta BLU and SP Teen Trunks PUR form a devastating Core capable of the highest consistent Strike Damage.

Why this Tier?

  • God Ki’s impressive roster brought the Tag from irrelevance to dominance alongside Fusion Warrior during the 1 Year Anniversary with a strategy reminiscent of Holy Trinity with EX Whis RED providing similar support to that of SP SSJ Bardock BLU for his Team.

  • Having both EX Whis RED and SP Zamasu RED as core options provides God Ki with a choice between great Support or a more Defense oriented Fighter--both of whom provide Team-Healing.

     

Discussion:

God Ki takes the classic Holy Trinity and refines it. the twin Super Saiyan God Super Saiyans can effectively check each other’s counters while EX Whis RED provides divine Support similar to SP SSJ Bardock  BLU, but also adds a Team-Heal to the mix. However, the lack of new additions made the Tag a bit lackluster compared to the Top Teams.

Why This Tier?

  • The goofy gaggle of multi-colored Ginyu goons at first doesn’t appear to be able to keep pace with more serious Teams. Frieza’s top men have tricks up their hypothetical sleeves though, namely fantastic Synergy and Equip options that boost their EX level stats up to the level of Sparking. 

  • Capable of reliably using both Offenses while also carrying Support options like EX Guldo GRN’s Heavy Immoblize or EX Captain Ginyu PURs switch prevention makes this Team quite unpredictable.

Discussion:

This Team’s fantastic Z-Abilities are a double-edged sword. Every member Buffs Frieza Force -- which keeps Team options open --but also keeps Frieza’s elite force from ever pulling ahead of the entire army. Unless specific and unprecedented support arrives for Ginyu Force, they will always be just a subsection of the more established Frieza Force.

Tier 2

What makes a Team 'Tier 2'?

Solid Teams that have the means to compete even against higher tier Teams, however they require more expertise compared to those to perform well.

Why this Tier?

  • SP UGA Super Buu GRN replaces SP Piccolo GRN and makes Regeneration more Offensive, which is helpful since the strongest Team in the Meta have the means to bypass its Defenses otherwise.

  • Regeneration can disrupt the Enemy’s rhythm through oppressive Extra Moves and strong Offensive Abilities.

Discussion:

Regeneration has fallen off from higher Tiers because its Defense isn’t much of a factor in the current Meta. However, they’re still great thanks to their very good Offensive Fighters that can control the rhythm of a Match.

Why this Tier?

Discussion:

Containing powerful Fighters like SP Teen Trunks PUR, SP Gogeta BLU, and the entire core of the Son Family Team--with many of those Fighters providing powerful Z-Abilities across other Tags like Lineage of Evil, Saiyan, and Super Saiyan--Sagas Warriors are pretty strong and have a variety of Support options. The lack of a Meta topping Build is what keeps Sagas Warrior out of Z Tier.

Why this Tier?

Discussion:

Powerful Fighters like SP SSB Vegeta PUR, SP Super Vegito PUR, and an association to the most powerful Saiyan Teams keeps this Team afloat. This is one of the more powerful Color-Counter Teams

Tier 3

What makes a Team 'Tier 3'?

Teams that only have one solid Fighter, a weak Supporting cast, or bad matchups in PVP as a whole.

Why this Tier?

  • SP Ribrianne BLU is still one of the strongest Fighters in the game, however her supporting cast is starting to feel a bit weak compared to the rest of the Meta.

  • While they don’t have any top tier Fighter except SP Ribrianne BLU, they have a decent Fighter for each color, which makes Female Warriors’ Team Builds quite adaptable

Discussion:

While this Tag’s Offense is still very good, handling SP Ribrianne BLU is becoming easier since more and more Meta defining Fighters are getting released. Since she was this Tag’s bread and butter, the weaknesses of her supporting cast are starting to be more apparent, and so Female Warrior went down a tier.

Why this Tier?

Discussion:

Yellow provides powerful dual boosting Z-Abilities and a Builds that Synergizes with Fusion Warrior. The only issue is that commonly used SP Perfect Cell YEL performs much better with other Teams.

Why this Tier?

Discussion:

Red Color-Counter is home to many powerful Fighters including SP Zamasu Red and SP SSJ2 Youth Gohan RED, but suffers the common flaw of Color-Counter Teams in that its most powerful Fighters were made to Synergize with other Teams.

Tier 4

What makes a Team 'Tier 4'?

Teams that no longer see competitive play.

Why this Tier?

  • This has a powerful Build, but it’s weak to common and powerful Fighters like SP SSGSSJ Vegeta PUR, SP SSJ Kid Goten PUR, and SP Super Vegito PUR--all of which are common on several powerful Teams.

  • Green Color-Counter has an advantage over Blue Fighters, but they’re still no match for any Team those Blue Fighters would be on.

Discussion:

Green Color-Counter brings solid Fighters to the field. Powerful on its own, but out of place when faced with common Teams that Blue Fighters would join.
