I know everyone has been doing their preliminary tier lists, but as always there seems to be a breakout character that seems to pop out of nowhere to succeed on the tournament level despite being written off as "mid-tier". After having played the game for quite a while, and watching quite a bit of 8WR stream matches (please hold the "online doesn't count" comments). I think I have a good idea of what characters will start seeing more of an appearance. My perdictions: Yoshimitsu - Probably the best mix-ups in the game Patroklos - Despite having less tools than Pyrrha, has better range and RO game. Honorable mention: Viola - This may be the only iffy one, but there are many orb combos where you just feel helpless as 1/4th your lfie disapears. And I don't think that Natsu will fall off the chart any time soon unless Bamco nerfs her; which we all know won't happen.
