Guaranteed to be a cornerstone on any team from start to finish. No team structure required - Error after Error can be forgiven or taken out of the equation.
Heal through the walls. GG

Guaranteed to be a high threat on any team from start to finish. No team structure required - The 2 flanks can be so dominant that straying from team path to recover isn't even a thought process more-so than flanking to begin with.

More often than not - expect a high ratio / killing sprees / all-game pressure without team structure required.

Mal'Damba Mal'Damba

The same with the above mentioned in all S- - SS tiers. These can start to have issues with team structure though, but doesn't hold them back from being a shifting piece on the team.

The Healers, as far as healing goes - can't heal through walls unlike Jenos - so theres going to be a lot of team error.
I'd rank them C or B if we're talking about strategic difficulty of healing capability or skillcap

Bomb King Bomb King

Androxus Androxus

Imani Imani

These rarely fall into team structure unless everyone is playing @ a B- skill or above. Can cause a lot of issues otherwise.

a

Sha Lin Sha Lin
Ying Ying
Grohk Grohk

Ying's illusions take too long to start healing once spawned. Shatter's radius is very small.
Sha Lin offers less capability and viability compared to other's similar. ie: Kassie who can drop tanks quickly
Grohk without going into the healing talent, has to rely on the Healing Totem which is such a small radius and CD isn't viable.

a-

Fernando Fernando
Buck Buck
Grover Grover
Torvald Torvald

Too much team orientation for the first 3 - Range issues - Range issues for Grover's Healing.
Torvold has great capability but when compared to other tanks - Wrecker takes away anything he can bring to the table.

b

Pip Pip
Atlas Atlas

Not very good choices at all.
Pip has too much reliance with damage to barely be considered a healer - the radius is a difficult hit marker even without an ally moving in close range.
Atlas dies very fast at times too often

c

Evie Evie

No Survivability - No cards to accommodate
Movement Speed maxed out is not going to make a shot anymore difficult as even 50%+ is basically jogging speed or slower than Viktor's Hustle.
No Crowd Control - Countered by Tyra's Molotov silencing as if elemental Lore even made sense to that.
Opting for Snowglobe and 3x Morale Boost is not going to outweigh the reality of instantly dying everytime to do it in almost complete certainty everytime.
Fire Rate - Lower from 1sec to 0.5-0.75 / 30%-50% Slow

Something you would expect a lot from for magical/wizard characters or there own Class tab for that matter.
or what you spec into / build as hybrid

Skillcap Summary

100% Movement Speed Increase
30% Map Size Increase
Auto-Classing - ie: Wizards/Hybrid Specs
All CC still allows skill capability
(ie: Chickens/Stuns/Etc changed)
10 Cards - 35 Loadout Points

Nimble - 25% Incraments
Haven - 15% Incraments
Cauter - 25% Incraments
Liferip - 20% Incraments

2nd Item - 500 Points
3rd Item - 600 Points


More Items
More Characters
(Currently 42) -
Why not break Mortal Kombat Armageddon @ 62.
Which for some reason feels like a lot more from 42-62
Latency Compensation Improvement - ie: Dying in Ice Blocks / Auto-Fire Around Corners / Recoil'd Headshot assists / Etc

As the game stands now its in the balance of 'Legendary Arcade Leisure' to 'Top-Tier Best Arcade Shooter Ever Made' if these things are completed. Very slept on even with the plentiful population it has.

A reminder that this is based on Non-Ranked or Premade teams - so viabilities must be taken into consideration; that characters with others can work or become more viable. However I feel the PUG format only amplifies the real issue of using the same in tier formats - the mask of it all is only showcased furthermore.

SS - Any Level 1-19 / PUG VIABLE
S+ - All Level 20+ - PUG VIABLE
S - All Level 25+ PUG VIABLE
S - All Level 25+ PUG VIABLE
A+ - All Level 25+ PUG VIABLE

A - All Level 30+ PUG VIABLE
A- - All Level 30+ PUG VIABLE
