Hey all; just a small update from AppMedia this week. As a result, Halloween Sonia Gran makes it onto the Aggregate list as Tier 4. Reco has this the video showcasing her in Alt Arena, if you haven't checked it out already. Have Rii inherited onto Sonia Gran, and since she comes with the new Skill Charge awakening (attack with 5 attributes to charge skill by 1), the leader swap takes place sooner and less stalling is required. I personally consider Skill charge to be pretty good, possibly enough that Gungho will limit the skill to only the rarest of cards. We will probably see more of this trend in the future (D. Kali split ult, perhaps?)
Since last week, new 4 Gentlemen Ult evos have been announced and released in Japan. Discussions and details should be floating around at r/PAD and on PadX if you don't already know. At first glance, they have received significant buffs to their leader skills and everyone that plays rows (all except You Yu) has received the new 3x3 heart FUA awakening. They are definitely shiny new toys JP players will play with in the days to come. They are currently ranked right below the cutoff line for the tier lists on Game8 and AppMedia. I can't speak for them personally since I don't have either of these cards, but they remain as orb hungry as ever and will probably see themselves ranked Tier 4 at the most, if they even make it there.
Finally, I am currently trying to get GameWith back into the aggregate list, as they are far more reliable and respected by the community. If it does not work out, either way I still start showcasing GameWith starting next week for reference.
DISCLAIMER: (quoted from SetsuPAD) on all current and future Aggregate/Tier lists: "Don’t take these ratings as fact; I encourage you to simply take them as a starting point for discussion to figure out which leads are actually the best for your specific situation."
Cards you own that are not on these Tier Lists are not automatically nonviable, and cards you own that are on these Tier Lists are not automatically viable.
These tier lists assume BEST subs (often hard-to-acquire GFEs/collab cards) tackling hard dungeons (Arena 3, 3-Player Rushes, ALT Arena/Arena 4). Therefore, their uses largely depend on your box, your progression in PAD, and personal puzzling/comboing skills.
