Ludia is updating this game so frequently it is hard to keep up with, but we finally have an updated (as of June 14, 2018) Jurassic World Alive tier list for you! In this article, we highlight our rankings and explaining how to interpret the tiers!

You can find stats for each and every Dinosaur mentioned here in our JWA Dinodex.

Without further ado, I give you the updated tier list (special thanks to Pocemon and Triceratops for help developing this!):

Legend:  Blue  = Promotion     Red = Demotion    Yellow = New Dinosaur

Interpreting the Tiers

If you are familiar with tier lists, this should be pretty self-explanatory. However, I’d like to add in a precautionary note on taking this tier list as a straight-up prescription for team building. Make sure to build a balanced team and keep specific counters in mind. An all Apex-Alpha team probably won’t be bad but you may be passing up some good lower tier dinosaurs that would mesh well with your team. That being said, here is what we have in mind when putting a dinosaur in a specific tier…

Carcass – These dinosaurs are just bad. Their kits don’t work, their stats are sub-par and they are killed by most other dinosaurs. In short, they need a buff (or three). Current Carcass Tier here.

Hatchling – Hatchlings are cute, cuddly, and not terribly threatening. These dinosaurs may not be the strongest, but can be very useful early-game or when over-leveled.

Survivor – These are solid dinosaurs that can carry your team early-game and still hold their own in higher arenas, though they become noticeably more situational. Previous Survivor Tier here.

Specialist – Though these dinosaurs are somewhat outclassed by others, they perform at least one role pretty well and can pull of surprise victories on occasion.

Alpha – These dinosaurs are among the best in the game and are capable of easily defeating most of the dinosaurs in lower tiers. The only thing they really have to fear is…

Apex – These dinosaurs define the meta and can win against almost anything not in this tier. They either have a single, difficult to counter strategy or are able to tank hits and deal big damage.
