Class Tier List, H2 2018

It's been a while since the great original "Class Tier List" discussion by @Kythra, and I was curious how much has changed in the 1.5 years that's passed.

Anyone want to take a stab at a new list? Here is the original one for reference:

Grouping info...
(SS)
S
A+
A
B
C
D
(E/F/G)
   + For those who ask about the letters from a tournament/competitive standpoint:
(SS) = Broken/Busted (Think Infernal with 251s and Frenzy) Not applied in this thread. Can use if you wish.
S = Dominant/Best Class. Consistently wins every matchup.
A+ = Somewhere between too strong and just right. Most people can pick it up and do decently well, and in the hands of a pro it's lethal.
A = Solo Viable. Wins most matchups.
B = Viable. Not consistent. Struggles with some classes.
C = Niche use. One tricks.
  + Not to say one tricks are bad, they usually go over and above to prove a point. But the class itself can't just be picked up and dominate the scene.
D = Unviable for competitive. Should not be used. And if someone loses to this tier/person, you/they usually learn the counterplay and never lose again.
(E/F/G) = Never seen. Not applied in this thread. Can use if you truly wish.

List...

    These kinda lists suck in a game like Achaea. 90% of the responses are gonna be people biased against a handful of classes. 9.99% will base their responses off of 100% perfect theorycraft play which literally nobody has. And then there'll be those 1 or 2 who give reasonable answers that people will no doubt massively disagree with.
    That above list proves as much, since it was "wrong" even when it was made.
    Every single class has "top tier viability" - pretty much all there is to it. If you're assuming people playing perfectly every single fight though, then no class is going to have it. Though that's also incredibly unrealistic.

    These are based off of my opinions and experiences with each class. Nope, I didn't theorycraft. Nope, I am not a good combatant. Nope, I don't have a Seragorn, Farrah, Iakimen, Rom , etc, etc, etc level of knowledge of each class, their counters and counter-counters. I assumed the combatant had the correct arties at level 3 (seriously who doesn't nowadays?)

    Serpent  (With dex cap)
    Infernal DWB (Unless fixed by now) (will lose to clumsy heavy classes)
    Monk
