  • NOTES: All the characters in the game are usable and can perform well under the right team and synergy. The top-tier characters we put under Tier 1 and Tier 2 are the best and worth investing in. Tier 3 characters are good in the early to mid-game and can do well at certain stages but may fall in the later game and not be helpful like Tier 1 and Tier 2 characters. Tier 4 characters are average units that can do well in specific situations but, overall, are not helpful. Tier 5 and Tier 6 characters are just bad.
