Ok, if you're really serious about playing at a high level, you first need to get to that high level. How do you get there? Playing a lot, with a character you like. Your investment will not have been wasted, believe me. Most of what you learn is going to be universally applicable to all characters, and to a lesser extent, all FGs.
What you're doing right now is spreading yourself too thin, so you'll never learn anything of value. Mastery of a single bottom tier character in a game that nobody plays is worth more, experience-wise, than being mediocre with the entire cast of all the games out there.
Playing a lower tier character will make you a better player anyway. You'll have to close the gap yourself rather than relying on the character. It's like training weights.
Not really, low tier'ness made me quit going to locals and staying in the training room for more than 2 mins.
Just pick the character you like the most because you're gonna play it with nearly all matches and practice on using him/her a lot, and don't worry about the "i am wasting my effort on the wrong character/game" as skill can be easily transferred from a character to another and from a game to a game.
The tier won't have a drastic effect usually but having a less capable character can force you to explore as many options as possible that you otherwise wouldn't need to. Even if the character is worse, your own skill as a player can be better.
But yeah what I'm getting at is, the important part is developing your skill, and which you can transfer between games and characters; at least, the basics of it. In games like BB you have to specialize in just one character if you want to go anywhere. They are too complex and different to just dabble in a few and get by.

If you are really serious about getting better in a FG then stop caring about win-loss and PSR. At the end of the day, they're just numbers.
Besides, Blazblue is one of those games where tiers hardly even matter, except for maybe CT and CS1, but as for CS2 and EX, the tiers are much tighter together, and won't matter anyways. Unless you are playing CRAZY high-level play, I wouldn't sweat it, because nearly every character is good. Take Mac's advice, and just pick someone who suits your playstyle. That's what I do, and I enjoy the game more that way. It's not fun when everyone picks the same fighter every time, right?
And be sure to practice one fighter at a time, also said by Mac. It's hard learning two totally different fighters in a game, especially BlazBlue, because every character plays drastically different!

If you do not find anything to like about this character, GFY.
