Every month, a new Chapter is released in the Season, and with it come some balance changes (sometimes). Here is the August Tier List of Lancer Power. These tier lists are tailored to something of a mix between solo queue and competitive play. If a lancer’s viability differs significantly between the two, I’ll make a note of it.
Keep in mind of course that this is just a general set of thoughts (as well as just my opinion!) and doesn’t apply to every game. Certain lancers if play well can excel in, say, solo queue, far beyond what the tier list would suggest. Additionally, bans do not necessarily have to be targeted at S+ or S every single game.
S+ — Must-ban
S — Extremely strong: high-priority pick or ban
*Solo queue only; weaker in competitive
A — Very strong
B — Good lancers
*Stronger in solo queue
**Weaker in solo queue!
C — Mediocre lancers
D — Weak lancers
F — Unplayable
