Tier List updated on April 13th 2019.

Note that:

  • The intention of this ULTIMATE TIER LIST is to help you decide which commanders you want to INVEST in.
  • It reflects my OPINION of each commander’s efficacy in multiple scenarios.
  • The overall rating is far less important than the rating for each specific scenario.
  • When selecting commanders you should choose based on what scenarios you want to excel in.
  • Although it would be interesting to make separate lists for when the commander is primary and secondary, we’ll have to save that for potentially another day.
  • With regard to open field combat, there are several factors that make a commander great: Move Speed, AOE, and number of troops. I heavily prioritize move speed over other factors because if you can’t control your position, you can frequently be either irrelevant or just dead.
  • One consideration that went into these rankings is the talent trees available to each commander.
