Fate/Grand Order Tier List

The Fate franchise has always been excellent with the media they produce. FGO, or Fate/Grand Order, is no exception to that.

Released worldwide in 2017, the game is Type-Moon’s entry into the gacha/RPG market – to which, it fared successfully. The game boasts a stunning visual-novel style of presenting the story and a combat and summoning system that is as well-paced as it is balanced.

Tier List Balance In FGO

Fate/Grand Order is widely regarded as a very friendly free-to-play game. Unlike in other games where the meta is always dictated by the newest or rarest units, you can have a powerful team with minimal grinding and currency purchases in FGO.

You’ll see in this list how balanced the game is. There are 4 and 3-star units included in high tiers. This means that you can go far with your party even if you just utilize the free resources the game gives you.

Now with all that out of the way, let’s dive into the Fate/Grand Order Tier List.

FGO Game Mechanics

Fate Grand Order

Fate/Grand Order is a turn-based, tactical RPG where the player assumes the role of a “Master”. Throughout your journey as the Master, you acquire and command a group of units called Servants. Your Servants fight for you in battle so you are responsible for optimal party composition and advanced strategies to wipe enemy waves.

You may have up to 6 units (3 active and 3 reserves) in battle. You are given 5 command cards at the start of each turn and may use 3 of them to attack. The command cards are based on your units in battle and are only shuffled at every turn. Your Servants also have unique skills that can buff the party’s skills or weaken the enemies before you issue your commands.

Success in battle relies heavily on in-game battle strategy and how well your Servants synergize with one another. However, there are Servants with better all-around skills that make them more powerful than others.

Hopefully, this tier list helped you build the perfect team to win those games.
