Over the years, many updates have been installed and balance changes have been implemented. Various stats have been nerfed or improved, and since then, the tier list has changed multiple times. This year, a new tier list has emerged, and it has been based on the latest version of Melty Blood Type Lumina.

The top picks this year are Michael Roa Valdamjong, Powered Ciel, and Vlov Arkhangel. These characters are way overpowered in terms of abilities and movement compared to the ones on lower tiers. Characters that were highly regarded last year have quickly lowered to A-tier due to these three characters introduced recently.

Shiki Tohno and Arcueid have lowered to A-tier this year but they are still well-rounded characters to use in battles. Veterans of Melty Blood Type Lumina can still win bouts with these characters since they know their movesets already.

Most of the Fate characters are unfortunately on B-tier compared to the originals of Melty Blood. The latter set of characters is just more favoured by experienced players.
