There's been some interest in me making a tier list, and although I've been hesitant to actually to do it (for a number of reasons) over the past week or so I've taken the time to put one together. A few disclaimers before actually getting into the meat of the list:

-It's very difficult to fairly compare servants with something as simplistic as a raw tier list. This list is weighted in favor of usefulness for difficult fights, so there are servants in low positions here who are great for, for example, farming. Just because a servant is low on a tier list doesn't mean you should ignore them!
-There are probably better ways to organize a tier list than dividing by rarity, especially considering there are a fair number of SRs who outshine most SSRs. I've organized the list this way for now, but I may reformat it at some point.
-This is, of course, just one person's opinion, so please don't take this as an absolute--if there's a servant you're interested in, look up their kit and see if you agree with my placing. The same is true of the appmedia tier list, for what it's worth, and that's part of why I wrote this up--I wanted to provide an alternative to that one.
-If you're curious about or disagree with where I've placed a servant, feel free to ask and I'll explain my reasoning (or admit that I didn't look at the servant's kit closely enough and misplaced them).
-You'll notice that some categories are divided out more (into ++ and -- categories). This is mostly just a formatting thing--I tried to break up groups that contained more than five servants, for ease of reading, if nothing else. The difference between a servant in, say, B++ and B-- isn't all that huge.
-This will probably be an evolving thing, updated as servants are added/buffed/et cetera.

General descriptions of the categories:

S: Servants who can go into almost any team and almost any fight and make the team stronger. These servants may have a particular niche in which they excel, but even outside of that niche, they do better than the majority of other servants. These are servants to strongly consider pulling for if gameplay is your focus.

A: Servants who are exceptionally strong in the right situation and still good outside of that. With the right team or in the right fight, these servants may be a better choice than comparable S-tier servants, but they may not be as self-sufficient or they may have a notable flaw that keeps them from being on top of the pack.

B: Solid servants who can serve you well in the right team or against the right enemies. Servants in this category may be exceptionally useful for very specific fights, and they’re not bad in general, but outside of niche situations or teams built around them they’re likely going to be overshadowed by S- and A-tier servants who happen to be available.

C: Servants who struggle outside of their niches or who are decent but have no situation in which they excel. While these servants may have one or two advantages over their higher-tier competition, their kits are weak as a whole and require either carefully-constructed teams or specific fights to be particularly good.

D: Servants who need a lot of work to be competitive. They aren’t completely terrible, but their kits are limited and they generally aren’t worth using for reasons other than character loyalty. With significant investment—grails, fous, maxed skills, et cetera—they can be serviceable for harder content, but most players won’t get much use out of them.

E: Servants who are almost worthless, gameplay-wise. These are servants who are outclassed even in the most favorable circumstances—although they may have situations in which they’re usable, there are still much better choices for those situations.

1) Archers are mostly really good, aren't they?
2) Doesn't Saitama/Daiz/Baldy-kun require a specific setup and for you to have enough stars and be lucky-enough to get a Brave Chain the turn after he buffs himself with his NP?

It's always interesting to see people's spin on a tier list.

I'm a little surprised JAlter is 'only' A+ and I thought Tamamo caster was great in arts teams but less so elsewhere. Although I suppose the definition for S lends itself particularly well to support characters.

Can't really comment on a lot since I see a lot of unfamiliar names but I'm sure the debate will be an interesting read.

On another note I'll hold off adding something as finicky as a tier-list to the FAQ though, especially if it's being revised frequently. Even given that it's a little unnecessary (for a review resource anyway) at that point people can probably draw their own conclusions... right?

1) Yup.
2) Inshun works best as a solo servant or in last-man-standing situations. His kit is amazing for those purposes, and still fairly good elsewhere.

Yeah, I agree. And thanks for the catch--it's been fixed.

I strongly disagree with your Chevalier D'éon placing. As literally the only gold servant with a 3-turn taunt he sure as hell has a niche. And his skills (Dodge, def up, heal, taunt and debuff removal) and NP (atk debuff) are all geared towards this niche. Tanking may not be everyone's cup of tea, but he's probably the best at it. He should be squarely C-- material. As in, has a niche and struggles greatly outside of it.

I also disagree with most else, but I believe this is the hill I want to die on.

Only one that really made me raise an eyebrow was Caligula being better than Sparticus.

I mean they both suck for sure but I'm pretty sure Caligula sucked more.

I'm curious why you're putting Lalter so low. I think she probably deserves to at least be up with Rama, but putting her under Emiya and Nobu (archer) seems excessively low. Lalter has a first rate crit skill and a mana burst so despite being AE, she should do about the same ST damage on a NPBB as Rama. She has much higher damage potential than Nobu for general use.

Anyway, overall I think it is a good list. I'd say I agree with it more overall than the appmedia one.
