It should come as no surprise that a player who’s proven his capability with a wide range of characters would rank such a large portion of Ultimate’s cast in top and high tier. MKLeo notes that he thinks the majority of players will disagree with his ranking, saying: “This is my tier list. I know you guys don’t like it that much but still, this is my opinion. The best player in Ultimate’s opinion. That’s all you get!”

At the end of the day, whether you think PAC-MAN and Mario are top tier or middle, It’s hard to argue with the best player in the world. If you want the full explanation of each placement in MKLeo’s tier list, we’ve embedded the full video below for you to enjoy.
