I could be wrong, but I don't think the overwhelming amount of K' is indicative of him being overpowered. He's definitely really, really strong; but I think part of the reason for his popularity (and I guess a reason for his strength too) is that he's so close to his 2002UM incarnation. And since 2002UM was the last popular KOF game, and K' was top-tier in that, a lot of players are just sticking with what they know.

From what I've seen and played, the game is more balanced than that list of teams would suggest.

I know there are a lot of missing teams there but DAMN how can there be ZERO Terry Bogards!?!?!?  I know people got good with 2002UM K' and whatnot but haven't people been perfecting the Terry craft since '91??

Personal preference (e.g. picking better more versatile characters) of course that shouldn't stop you from picking him, anyway the Kyo XIII wiki is almost done, anyone know how to upload a pic without overriding one with the same name?

for anyone else working on the XIII wiki PM me

WOW.  Bow down.  krazykone123, not only do you contribute the most in the forum as a whole, you bascially completed the Kyo section.  I don't know much wiki lingo too much (all those spaces etc) but I have a pretty comprehensive Chin write-up under the Chin thread, I'll be happy to add that with pictures etc.

---
From the video thread (wanted to keep the vid thread clean):
I think K' can be defeated by many characters. In fact I'm sure there are a lot of good characters in this game. But arcade players are not givin a chance to them, and feel safety picking up K'...
Last vids related to Joe are proof of that.

Well this maybe the case, and hence why the tiers are still very close.  Having said that, the Joe user is a very skilled player firstly, and secondly, having played the game for several months now, playing against K' is still a pain.  His priority, options, damage, abilty to build meter as first character, pressure can be seen in the videos, but a lot can only be felt when in the game.  Hell Mai could beat a K' by jumping away all day, but doesn't mean she's not one of the top characters.  Top tier to me really is a summation of multiple attributes, for which I believe he posses most of the necessary ones to make him top.   Remember, just coz the (and excuse me for throwing out alleged tier titles) A+ having no problem taking out the S's doesn't mean the Bs have an easy time with S's.

Tier list are just that really, for the most part, how easy it really is to beat the rest of the cast.  S has the easiest time, while C has the hardest time.  A gosu player is going to win with any character (like haregoro from the KCE vids).

yes, I know they are top tier. And I could expect that some beginner use them. But what I expect from a "pro" player, is see how he masters some not God tier character and he wins. Mr. KOF Andy, for example, or Kane his Chin. This is what I really would like to see in vids... But in general we only see K', Kyos, Liz, Raidens, Kulas and Ioris playing in the same way again and again (smoai vids, singapoure tournament vids, tougeki vids, etc)

Those are pretty cool, bit expensive though. Playasia has them up for preorder already.
