GlobalPVPA SNaielle was initially underrated because we questioned the viability of teams containing her and Albion over other defenders with Albion. With more players seeing success, we decided to uptier her.
GlobalPVPB ADoma is a good DPS/utility hybrid that's basically a weaker Gaeun.
GlobalPVPA SWhen Harab is banned, the Shieldman is actually a decent pick.
GlobalPVPD CTommy is still useless, but not as useless as we initially thought.
GlobalPVPS SSGlobal regions seems to use YXL as a damage dealer rather than a bulky Striker and this approach seems to work well.
GlobalPVPSSS SSA. Yubin has issues staying alive against strong damage dealers like Ifrit and he isn't as good as before the murder-tank release.

GlobalPVPSS SSSMina is a different beast on Global compared to other servers. While Global is missing a lot of her counters, some are already available and yet, she's nearly unstoppable.

SEAPVPSSS SSAwakened Jake release finally managed to bring Evolved One from her untouched state. She's still strong, but at least now there's a proper counter to her.
SEAPVPSS SThe more stronger awakened employees get released, the harder it is to use her.
SEAPVPSS SAwakened Jake release made using Ifrit harder - now you have to try to avoid not only Na Yubin but also Jake.
SEAPVPS AShe just dies too easily.
SEAPVPA BOur initial increase of her ratings after Gremory release was overkill. She's just niche.

AllShadow PalaceSS SSSHer DPS is so absurd that it's hard to find a reason to not use her aside from Sniper bans.
AllDanger CloseSS SSSWhile initially she was thought to only be good for Striker bosses, it was found her DPS is so great that she becomes best-in-slot for most of the other bosses as well.
AllStoryS SSSHer DPS is so absurd that it's hard to find a reason to not use her aside from not having her.

AllRaidsSS SSSA raid staple. Not only does she make the team on steroids for her atk buff duration - her def debuff has really good uptime as well.
AllShadow PalaceB SVery good for teams that need a last push on the ship before a shadow respawns or the ship pulls out something annoying.
AllRaidsS AYou really don't need more than 2-3 healers for raids, so you could just pick the healers that buff in addition to healing.
AllDanger CloseA BWhile the DC rework made healers more commonplace, other healers could boost damage while healing. This makes Claudia an inferior pick.
AllDanger CloseA SCheap DPS units are getting in favor, especially for Defender bosses where Assault Trooper shines at.
AllRelic DungeonD SGood for backdoor strat on armor relic.
AllDanger CloseB AUsed for Bishop to detect stealth + remove buff from the clone.
AllDanger CloseS AThere are better strikers - like Chifuyu. And it's hard to not have Chifuyu.
KRPVPB SAfter the buff, she became quite good, though not enough to be meta and you also need to build a team around her to make her work.

EmployeeServerCategoryChangeNotes
SEADive 50C ADecent support for immortal comps, since she just stays at the back, buffing atk and haste.
SEADive 50SS ARange not long enough for immortal comps, and damage still middling for tank comps. Her stun doesn't work on mechs, either.
SEADive 50S SSDoes the same thing as Lyudmila with similar DPS. Adjusting ratings to match.
SEADive 50SS SSSStrongest DPS among snipers and can stun periodically. While she can't hit air, she should be paired with one Karin, Lyudmila, or Queen who can take care of the Woodpeckers alone.
SEACoop RaidC BShe's quite good pick for raid level 1-7, but unusable later because she dies instantly.
SEADive 50SSS SSFulfills the same role as Karin with similar DPS. Adjusting ratings to match.
SEADive 50A BHer debuffs don't work here as with most PVE, so she's just a stun bot. Also can only do it once for immortal comp since her range is short.
SEADive 50SS SSSAmong snipers, she's the only one that gives a debuff, boosting the whole team's damage. She also deals with Woodpeckers, and her ult can even destroy those pesky recoiless gunners in Dive 48.
SEADive 50S ARange too short for immortal comp, and team space is very tight for tank comp.

SEARaidB AHe's a cheap tank that serves his purpose well enough in Raids.
SEADanger CloseB CFor the same cost there are many other better DPS units for any DC boss.
SEADanger CloseB ABuffs allies' damage vs the replacer DC bosses for only 2 cost.
SEARaidS SSSConstantly alleviates pressure from the team due to his counters cancelling a bunch of the boss' attacks. Also does pretty good damage.
SEACoop RaidS SSSConstantly alleviates pressure from the team due to his counters cancelling a bunch of the boss' attacks. Also does pretty good damage.
SEARaidS ANot much DPS for a 5-cost, and her buffs to rangers aren't necessary.
SEARaidA SNew raids are encouraging a slow start, making a snowball unit like Choi Ina good to start with along with Sigma.
SEADanger CloseB CShe's just another striker without any meaningful contribution other than tanking.
SEARaidS AThere are many other buffers that buff much more than measly 10% atk.
SEACoop RaidS BThere are many other buffers that buff much more than measly 10% atk.
SEARaidA BNo summons if there are no enemies to kill, and despite her massive bonus to CO, her DPS on CO raids still isn't great.
SEACoop RaidA BNo summons if there are no enemies to kill, and despite her massive bonus to CO, her DPS on CO raids still isn't great.
SEARaidS AHer raid DPS is very far from the others in her tier such as Sobin and Xiao Lin.
SEAPVPSS SComparing to the KR server when she dominated after being released, here's she a bit weaker vs most composition and only shines when paired with A. Horizon.
SEADanger CloseB CThere's currently no good mech tanks for DC that could use his healing. His buff also only applies to mechs.
SEARaidA CCommon frontliners for raids aren't mechs, and most of the DPS isn't coming from mechs either.
SEACoop RaidA CCommon frontliners for raids aren't mechs, and most of the DPS isn't coming from mechs either.
SEADanger CloseA BShe already had problems surviving pre-DC rework - now bosses do even more damage depending on the player's debuff choices. Her cost is also a problem.
SEARaidA BGood DPS, but for the same cost there are many other units you can slot in. Also she struggles to survive in higher level coop.
SEACoop RaidA BGood DPS, but for the same cost there are many other units you can slot in. Also she struggles to survive in higher level coop.
SEARaidA BReally disappointing DPS for 4 cost. Defender mode useless as well.
SEADanger CloseB ACore unit for Tyrant Sword now that there's bonus points for taking the awakened unit debuff.
SEARaidC AHer DPS is actually quite strong, only problem is if you can slot her.
SEADanger CloseA BHis walls are only really useful for no tank Moderator strats; there are better choices for other bosses if you want a quick distraction.
SEARaidA BHis DPS is middling and his walls basically do nothing.
SEADanger CloseB CDC bosses don't heal and some are even immune to ASPD reduction, and don't often have strippable buffs. Pick a better tank, they usually even cost less.
SEADanger CloseB CShe's just another striker without any meaningful contribution other than tanking.
SEARaidA SSHer defense debuff has a pretty good uptime with an above average value, she can make the frontline ignore some normally instakilling mechanics, and she does decent damage all for just 3 cost.
SEARaidB AHer DPS is actually quite strong, only problem is if you can slot her.
SEAPVPS SSWith A.Horizon release her stock rose as she can help dealing with her.
SEADanger CloseS AHer debuffs aren't enough for her cost, and other damage dealers can perform better.
SEARaidS AShe doesn't do that much DPS for her cost, and the boss is immune to 2 of her 3 debuffs.
SEACoop RaidS AShe doesn't do that much DPS for her cost, and the boss is immune to 2 of her 3 debuffs.
SEADanger CloseS BFor some reason KR hyper him up when his damage isn't top tier. His buffs are also middling.
SEADanger CloseB AGreat unit for Knight since she can't get knocked back, does tons of damage, and has decent survivability.
SEAPVPA SHas good synergy with A. Horizon and also Evolved One is avoiding bans more often now.
SEARaidA CShe doesn't really do anything, especially since raid bosses are immune to ASPD reduction.
SEACoop RaidA CShe doesn't really do anything, especially since raid bosses are immune to ASPD reduction.
SEAPVPA SWith A.Horizon release her stock rose as she can help with dealing with her.
SEADanger CloseSS SHer kit, while good, isn't made optimally for most bosses except Nervier and Moderator A.
SEADanger CloseA BShe's just another striker without any meaningful contribution other than tanking.
SEARaidA BShe's just another striker. DPS is middling and only 2 times usage on her debuff which shouldn't even matter for the most part.
SEACoop RaidA BShe's just another striker. DPS is middling and only 2 times usage on her debuff which shouldn't even matter for the most part.
SEADanger CloseB AAbusing her immortality as a frontliner can let you take max defensive debuffs for some bosses on your battle report since she won't die for 10 seconds anyway.
SEADanger CloseSS SSSHarim patches both survivability and skill haste debuffs players pick for extra score in DC.
SEADanger CloseB CThere's no debuffs to remove, aside from Bishop's stealth, but that's better suited for Alex or Kaci since they can detect stealth.

SEARanked PVPSS SSSSEA server wasn't ready for her. Rearmed Esterosa is simply broken and we lack employee that can counter her consistently.
SEARanked PVPSS SThe recent Serina Operator release hurt her pretty badly and it's super hard to use her now.
SEARanked PVPS ARearmed Esterosa does what she does, but a hundred times better. So sadly, Veronica lands on the bench for now.
14.04.2022

Added PVP ratings to all employees that are available in the Global Closed Beta test. This is the first iteration and the ratings will be adjusted before the release.

SEARanked PVPSSS SSA lot of her counters (Nestkeeper Xiao, Awaken Amy, Replacer King) are already released in SEA and it's getting harder and harder to use her at higher ranks.
SEARanked PVPS AShe's simply inferior to other Striker + Albion ship combos in the current meta.
SEARanked PVPA BThe murderbot good days are over and we think for good - there's simply too many dps in the meta for him to do his job.
SEARanked PVPA CShe had her moments, but now even her anti-mech kit simply does nothing.
SEARanked PVPS SSWith way stronger employees dominating the meta and eating bans week after week, she's seeing more and more uses as a safe pick.
SEARanked PVPB AInhibitor gear made her tankier and she's again seeing some use in the current meta.
SEARanked PVPA SWith the need for more bulky strikers, Chifuyu stocks rose again as she's one of the tankiest strikers who also provides tons of other things.
SEARanked PVPA SWhile soldier teams aren't that good, Shieldman shines in Replacer King teams that continue to be the meta pick.
SEARanked PVPA SHe's a tankier alternative to Gaeun who also helps the team with debuffs.
SEARanked PVPA SAs a 2 cost Sniper, she's one of the better choices to proc Olivia skill.
SEARanked PVPS SSShe's crucial during some weeks to kill the backline and the Inhibitor gear made her way tankier and deadlier.
SEARanked PVPA SShe's being used more often now in rush teams.
SEARanked PVPA SSimilar to Ingrid, the Inhibitor gear made her a lot stronger and she's again a great addition to the team.
SEARanked PVPA SHe's situational, but when the week and bans are right, he's a game-changer if used right.
SEARanked PVPA SShe's situational, but when the week and bans are right, she's a top tier healer.
