DashFight MK11 Rankings Methodology (Beta)

Debating on who the best Mortal Kombat player in the world is a common pastime for fans of fighting games. It’s a topic that fascinates fans because as human beings we are wedded to the idea of hierarchy. Well, we have some hierarchy here for you. We used to have rankings before but these were based on other resources and their vision. After some feedback from the community, it was decided that this was not the best way forward, hence, the decision to have DashFight’s very own MK11 player rankings. 

It should be noted that this is a beta version, so, naturally, everything isn’t perfect, but with the help of you, our awesome readers and supporters, we can make it into the most unbiased and realistic ranking of Mortal Kombat players. We highly value every user's input and if you have an idea or a suggestion for us regarding DF Rankings you can contact us via email at support@dashfight.com

Methodology

At the moment, DF Rankings are ordered by years and regions. So, we currently have calculated the relevant rankings for both 2020 and 2021. It is our hope that this is improved with time as more data is collated. Unfortunately, we can’t go much further as there are no global leaderboards for all the years since competitive fighting games gained popularity. 

What are DF points? 

These are awarded to players who place highly in tournaments all over the world. So, think of it this way: a player competes in a tournament, achieves a high placing and is awarded points based on a variety of factors. 

Currently, we take the following things into consideration:

  • The region representation of the tournament, its format and prestige
  • Placement of the player as it relates to their performance in recent history.

We are considerate of all tournaments around the world and understand that there are different levels of importance attached (for instance, there is more prestige in being an Evo winner than being an NLBC champion). This is an ongoing process that will be revised as we get more feedback. 

Right now, 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

You can check out the following table to see how the points are getting distributed according to the mentioned above factors

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
