yeah but tier lists are totally subjective depending on the player and what they think is cool
Kazunoko’s Tier list from Arcadia Magazine, Feb 2012:

A: Ryu, Claw, Sagat, C. Viper, Rufus, Ibuki, Makoto, Juri
B: Ken, E. Honda, Zangief, Guile, Dhalsim, Boxer, Dictator, Abel, Akuma, Sakura, Rose, Gen, Dee Jay, Dudley, Cody, Guy, Yun, Yang, Evil Ryu, Oni
C: Chun-Li, Blanka, El Fuerte, Gouken
D: Hakan, Dan
Overall balance is very good.
Best chars: Ryu, Akuma, Cammy
Twins are mid-tier.
Fei-Long is high-tier.
Seth and Sagat are high-tier but has bad match-ups.
Rest of the characters: characters other than - Chun-li, Dhalsim, Gouken, Rose, Gen, Dan, T-Hawk, Deejay, Guy, Hakan, Oni, and Evil-Ryu have potential to be high-tier.
