S-tier denotes all the units that currently feel the strongest in the game. Kenshi and Liu Kang have insane damage potential where their combos hurt a lot and will absolutely demolish you mercilessly. Sub Zero has lots of set-ups but his damage isn’t half-bad either, making him a well-rounded unit.

A-tier denotes the units that are really good but need some work from the side of the players. This is especially true for characters like Smoke and Scorpion who are quite reliant on optimal combo set-ups. These characters will take some time getting used to, but once you do, they can be extremely fun to play.

B-tier does not denote any bad character, instead, it denotes those that need to be explored a lot more. The game is in its infancy and it is hard to point out any of the units as absolute low-tier for now.
