Guilty Gear Strive players have been keen to see how much impact the game has Season 2 balance patch at the highest level of competition, and this weekend serves as the perfect testing ground for that.

Managing Director 2022 will go down as the first major offline major for Strive Season 2, but how much has this realignment changed which characters and players have made it far into the tournament?

Although every character has been touched up, it still looks the same as Ramlethal and Nagoriyuki’s show considering they both had 7 players leading them in the top 64.

Leo was unsurprising with 5 picks alongside Zato-1 and Faust with BC | Apologyman, representing the good doctor in the top 8, not too far behind them.

While there are two recurring characters in the finale between Ram and Leo, there was still a wider variety of contenders who made it into the top 11% of the bracket, including some earlier lower tiers like Jack-O and Goldlewis who competed with 4 players each showed up .

There was only one character on the list that didn’t appear that far at all, and that was, once again, Anji Mito.

The Happy Chaos and Sol nerfs may seem to have slowed them down a decent bit compared to what we saw in Season 1, as only 2 of them made the top 64 each and only 1 Gunslinger made it to the top 16 .

We’re sure fans were hoping for a more shake-up in the meta to make Ram, Nagoriyuki, and Leo a little less ubiquitous, but Season 2 has only been available for a few weeks at this point – so hopefully we’ll keep going to see , how things develop in the coming months.
