Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate tier list - Preview

For the past few weeks I've searched the net for a tier list for DOA5U and the only one I could find follows:

S tier: None
A tier: Kasumi, Christie, Akira, Sarah, Jacky, Gen Fu, Momji, Alpha-152, Leon, Ayane
B tier: Pai, Mila, Hayabusa, Hayate, Lei Fang, Jann Lee, Hitomi, Ein, Bayman, Helena, Kokoro
C tier: Brad Wong, Lisa, Tina, Bass, Zack, Eliot, Rig, Rachel

I posed the question of DOA5U's tier list to xbl gamer xLastRealKingx while running a few sets and his list was very different which follows:

High tier: LeiFang, Sarah, Hayabusa, Rig, Gen Fu
Middle-High tier: Jann Lee, Bayman, Momiji, Helena
Middle tier: Christie, Pai, Akira, Mila, Kasumi, Ayane, Jacky, Alpha-152, Leon, Bass, Rachel, Tina, Brad Wong, Kokoro, Hitomi, Hayate, Zack
Low tier: Eliot, Ein

What separates his high tier is the tools those characters possess that grant them guaranteed set ups that can't be blocked or countered.

In a game like Dead or Alive a tier list is very subjective considering that every character has counters or (holds) and overall character knowledge can paralyze any opposition. I'll be putting these theories to the test in the coming weeks as I create our own DOA5U tier list here at which will be open to your input as long as it is supported by factual information.
