DashFight SSBU Rankings Methodology (Beta)

DashFight brings the SSBU pro competition to a new level. Will you be able to fight your way to the top of our Smash Ultimate rankings? How is your favorite pro player doing in DashFight’s new ranking system?

Please, check out the list of top Smash Ultimate players ranked from the best… to actually the same best but with slightly less active in the recent tournaments (you know, everyone is absolutely exceptional on this top-level).

Methodology

So, how do we build Smash Ultimate player rankings?

The system gives DF points to players, counting their tournament results. The number of DF points depends on:

  • Tournament Tier (on the basis of various factors)
  • The player’s position in the final results

The numbers certainly can’t take into consideration many aspects, such as the skills of a specific player. They are only about real tournament results. For example, if someone is impressively talented but participates in only a few small tournaments, you might not find their name in this list of the best Smash Ultimate players. The system evaluates bare results.

Regional vs Global

The world of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate esports is huge and consists of many dimensions. To give all the players a chance to shine in this for-fun-only competition, we have created Global and Regional rankings of pro Smash players.

Regional realities of SSBU esports open very different opportunities for players. Having more tournaments in a specific location means there are more chances to earn DF points. And a smaller number of events doesn’t necessarily mean lower skill levels of top players there. Select a region to see different versions of the ranking list.

Global rankings do not reflect the regional features. It’s a place of an uncompromising fight — of course, a totally friendly fight.

Updating and Maintaining

Fighting esports is so unpredictable! One day a player is on the top, and the next day someone knocks them out from this (glorious) position. DashFight’s Smash rankings change accordingly, so you always get the freshest version on our platform. 

The ranking system itself is subject to improvement. While keeping the objective basis, we constantly search for ways to make our rankings better. Because, you know, that what DashFight does — brings positive power into the FGC.
