Hi everyone! ZicaZow here with a couple big updates and changes to the tier lists, so bear with me with the explanations to follow.
First, I'd like to mention that I have added GameWith's tier list into consideration for the JP Aggregate Leader List. One big note is that GameWith uses a TOP 10 leader list, and therefore required my intervention to group them into "tiers" so I can fit it onto this list.
Another big thing to note is that Altema also changed their list to TOP 10. I don't follow Altema very closely in terms of how their tier lists work, so I don't know if this is a temporary or a permanent thing. It seems they have released the top 10 list based off of the user poll of the Strongest Leaders of July. Again, I have adjusted accordingly to fit it into the Aggregate list.
In addition, because of the top 10 format, less cards are being featured and therefore the scoring for the JP Aggregate Leader List changed dramatically, notably Tier 4 being cut out of the list. Therefore, the Aggregate tier list I am about to present is experimental; for a more stable and varied list, refer to my last tier post.
Since I have been getting a lot of comments and questions on cards that are not on the list, I have one final note to the new and experienced players alike: any cards that are not on the list are not automatically non-viable. GungHo has made various ult evos, awoken, and revo to old pantheons to bring them back closer to the meta we have. It is your job as the player to figure out your leader and team build around it; that is part of the fun and the journey of Puzzle and Dragons.
Finally, I may do another tier list for best subs. Tell me what you think, along with any other suggestions!
As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to ask me in the Disqus comment section below!
