ForeverKing Releases His Mortal Kombat 11 Tier List

by in Fighting Game News | May, 14th 2019

Well-known Mortal Kombat competitor ForeverKing has released his official Mortal Kombat 11 Tier List. This list includes a ranking of all of the currently available fighters in the game. This is something that is extremely useful for players who are looking to see who are the best fighters around.

ForeverKing posted his ranking on Twitter, including all 25 characters available in the base game and none of the upcoming paid DLC characters. The 25 characters are broken up into five different tiers ranging from D tier (worst) to the S tier (best).

There are actually a fair number of fighters in the worst tier possible, so it is worth noting that this is his personal opinion based on his time with the game in the past month or so. You can find the full ranking from ForeverKing below.

Not only are the tiers in order from best to worst, but the characters are even ranked within the tiers themselves. The character on the far left side is the best of the group and the quality steadily decreases until you reach the last character on the right.

  • S Tier: Geras, Sonya Blade, Erron Black, Scorpion
  • A Tier: Cassie Cage, Jacqui Briggs, Cetrion, Kabal, Lui Kang, Sub-Zero, Baraka, Noob Saibot
  • B Tier: Jax Briggs, Kitana, Skarlet, Johnny Cage
  • C Tier: Kung Lao, Jade, Shao Kahn, Raiden, Kano
  • D Tier: Frost, The Kollector, Kotal Kahn, D’vorah

Unsurprisingly, we have Geras leading the pack with D’vorah at the very bottom. Comments from fans seem to generally accept that this is a fair assessment of the roster, but you’ll want to take this with a grain of salt. Just because a character is at the bottom of the list doesn’t mean they aren’t viable. In fact, SonicFox has already demonstrated that D’vorah is a character to be feared in the right hands.

The only major contention I have regarding ForeverKing’s Mortal Kombat 11 Tier List is that The Kollector is so far down the list currently. This is apparently because players have quickly learned how to counter his moves and this has made him much easier to beat otherwise.

At the start of the game, though, he seemed overpowered because there weren’t many ways to fight against him. This has already changed, though, in just a month since the game’s release. Players also debate that both Cassie and Jacqui could be S Tier.

So, what gives this Mortal Kombat 11 Tier List so much weight? Well, it’s from ForeverKing who is a prominent competitor in the esports scene. He has placed relatively well and consistently the same in most competitions that he is in.

He’s well-known in the fighting game community, garnering more than 11 thousand followers on Twitter alone. He participates in various fighting games including the Mortal Kombat series, Injustice 2, and many more. Fighting games seem to be both his expertise and passion.

His various accolades include a top-eight placement at the EVO championships in 2012 and 2013 where he placed sixth and fourth, respectively. He is also a top four world finalist for the Eleague Injustice 2 World Championship in 2017. He regularly places around fourth place in many of the competitions he participates in, placing him as one of the best in the world.

ForeverKing even gives personal lessons to players who want to improve their fighting game skills. With all of these accolades and expertise behind him, it’s no wonder that fans in the fighting game community are already accepting his Mortal Kombat 11 Tier List as the most accurate one thus far.

It is important that you remember that this is a list for all of the characters only a month after the game’s release. There are, of course, going to be various balances and changes to characters that will surely switch things up a bit on the list.

In addition, there are upcoming DLC characters planned for the game that will shake up the tier list considerably as well. As such, we expect this list to be significantly different several months from now. For now, though, this Mortal Kombat 11 Tier List is a great list to reference when deciding what characters you wish to main.
