Killer Instinct Rankings
BETA

Player Rankings based on tournament performance and participationHow we rank players
Last updated :Aug 15, 2022

DashFight Killer Instinct Rankings Methodology (Beta)

This is the beta version of DF Rankings, and It is important to say that this is our first attempt at ranking players. So, we’re going to improve our rankings, considering the data needed for more accurate estimation. 

Our Rankings are ordered by years and regions. So far, we’ve calculated rankings for 2021 and 2022. There is no global leaderboard for all years. 

What are DF points? 

DF points define a player’s place in our ranking. We give points based on two things:

  • Tournament Tiers, defined by many factors.
  • Players’ Placements in the given tournaments during the year. 

To assign tournament tiers, we took into account tournament formats, local/regional/global status, number of participants, prestige and more. We have consulted with pro players and revised according to their feedback. So, DashFight’s tier list for tournaments goes like this:

  • Tier 1 — Global
  • Tier 1 — Regional
  • Tier 1 — National
  • Tier 2 — Global
  • Tier 2 — Regional
  • Tier 2 — National
  • Local / Community

The players are then awarded points based on their tournament placements, adjusted to the tier. We looked at the traditional sports approach to points distribution and used it as an example. You can see the result in the table:

1st place 2nd place 3rd place 4th place 5-6 place 7-8 place 9-16 place 16-32 place 32-64 place 64-128 place
Tier 1. Global 2000 1300 780 600 430 340 240 130 70 10
Tier 1. Regional 1500 974 583 448 320 254 179 97 52 7
Tier 1. National 1000 649 389 299 214 170 120 56 35 5
Tier 2. Global 600 390 234 180 129 102 72 39 21 3
Tier 2. Regional 500 325 195 150 107 85 60 32 17 2
Tier 2. National 400 260 156 120 86 68 48 26 14 2
Local / Community 200 130 78 60 43 34 24 13 7 1

For example, 240 points for places 9-16 in Tier 1 — Global means that each participant in this range earns 240 DF points. 

How often are DF rankings updated?

DF rankings will be recalculated each time a new tournament from the given year is added to our platform.
