Wi-fi Warrior Rank: #21-30

Cloudhead - July 18, 2018

From the dawn of Smash 4 to now, online tournaments have been a staple in the game's vast competitive scene, allowing smashers from across the globe to duke it out from their own living rooms and test their strength against an incredibly diverse playerbase. For the first time ever, the Wi-Fi Warrior Rank has organized a comprehensive ranking system for ten of the most notable Wi-Fi series on the internet! From January to June of this year, every player was pitted against each other based on their placings, wins, and losses, and the fifty highest scoring warriors comprise the inaugural WWR. Read here for more information on the Wi-fi Warrior Rank and the weeklies that contribute to it. 

The top 50 will be unveiled in groups of 10 every other day starting on Saturday, July 14th. Stay tuned to SSBWorld.com to make sure you don’t miss any of the reveals!

  • Saturday, July 14th: #41-50
  • Monday, July 16th: #31-40
  • Wednesday, July 18th: #21-30
  • Friday, July 20th: #11-20
  • Sunday, July 22nd: #1-10

 

Please note that the results outlined in the graphics and paragraphs are not the full extent of the WWR's data. So long as a placing or win occurred at a tournament included in the ranking, it is represented in the full WWR data and properly contributed to the final product.

#30

He doesn't just organize the tournaments - Ravenking likes to win them, too. A TO for Smashurai for much of the year, he proved his skills both behind the brackets and in them, culminating in a comeback victory at Flamewave Neo #6. After solidly defeating FuerzaDON and RobinGG to reach winners' finals, he was knocked into losers' bracket by Soki; he surged back into Grand Finals and defeated him in two 3-1 sets to win it all. With other wins over Rax, Copper, and more under his belt, Ravenking's Ike brings the pain like no other, and it's brought him to a clean #30 on the Wi-fi Warrior Rank.

#29

Zomba may be the youngest player on the Wi-fi Warrior Rank, but if you think that means he'll be an easy fight, you're kidding yourself. Yet another Tristate titan on the list, Zomba delivered a long list of strong results over the course of this season; among his best was a 2nd place showing at The Smash Bash 71, where he blew through the likes of Otakuni, Jaxson, and Grayclash. Adept with arguably the two best characters in the game, Zomba is an absolute beast in bracket with no shortage of results to his name. Underestimate him, and you're set to get schooled.

#28

Landing in 28th place as our highest-ranked French competitor, Otakuni is rising to fame faster than anyone can keep track of. His skill is on full display at every Wi-fi event he attends, such as Flamewave Neo 11, where he defeated Ravenking, Chemdev, and Bernihetero on the way to a strong 3rd place. His wins also include players such as Zaxel, Urameshi, and Sharp, and he has a myriad of excellent Eclipse showings coupled with several strong Smashurai runs. As he now rises to fame with his Link play in the upcoming Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, he's earned praise from across the world and even a challenge from ZeRo himself. Anything could be in store for Otakuni in the future, but one thing's for sure: as long as he's still playing on Wi-fi, he's got a spot on the WWR with his name on it.

#27

The Smash community at large knows Jade for a monstrous win over Trela at CEO 2016, but anyone who knows Wi-fi knows that she's far more than a one-upset wonder. Her unparalleled play with Bowser Jr. has earned her great success in Smashurai, and she's made top 8 at all but one of the few tournaments she entered this season. Her victory at their Circuit Weekly 4 in particular featured wins against Copper, FuerzaDON, and a doubleheader over Catalyst, en route to a resounding 1st place. The numbers don't lie when it comes to Jade; she's immensely good at what she does, with the wins to show for it. She'll get the win no matter what it takes, one Mechakoopa, kart dash, and hammer swing at a time.

#26

You don't get much better on the Rosalina front than Freckles, who brought his talent to Wi-fi this season to great success. Like many players, his best showings came in the Smashurai series, including a colossal losers' run at Smashurai Mini 22. A loss in pools didn't stop him at all, as he surged through the bracket to second place, defeating Sharp, Grayclash, and Horse on the way. He's got it in him to win it anywhere, and Wi-fi is no exception; as the best Smash 4 player in Montana, Freckles is ready to up-air any opponent into the blast zone and send them Rocky Mountain high.

#25

If there's one thing Mikerowave is good at, it's bringing the heat. He made all sorts of fiery runs over the course of the season and built a name for himself as a top competitor, cementing himself as #25 on the Wi-fi Warrior Rank. One of his most impressive runs came at Smashurai Circuit Weekly 11, burning through Copper, Freckles, Zixvy, and IcyMist, earning a strong 5th place. His handful of dangerous characters is backed up by his exemplary skill no matter who he's playing. It's like the saying goes: if you can't take the heat, stay out of Mikerowave's bracket. That's the saying, right?

#24

Flipping into #24 on the Wi-fi Warrior Ranking is Sharp, a competitor who cuts through the brackets like no other. With a two-part threat in Diddy Kong and Sheik, he fought his way to the top of more than a few brackets over the course of the season, across which he took sets from notable players such as Lalo, Kury, Chemdev, and Chusam. His Monday Night Mayhem win and twin silver medals at Smashurai and SL also prove his ability to hang with the best of them. Having landed in the upper half of the WWR, he's poised for a season just as good as this one, if not better - in other words, he's looking mighty Sharp.

#23

He's good enough to compete with almost any character in the game, but all Zenkai needs are a few of Mewtwo's go-tos to knock you straight out of bracket. A master of floaty characters with his strong Rosa secondary, he launched himself to several great results in the Eclipse and Smashurai series. One of the latter events, Smashurai Circuit Monthly 4, saw him take down Grayclash, Le Elin, and iTheta on the way to 5th. I'd warn you not to get psyched out against Zenkai, but it probably doesn't matter; either way, almost all of his opponents are just another name on his legendary runs.

#22

Playing the iconic Nintendo mascot to his fullest potential, Kury17 is a Wi-fi icon in his own right. Breaking in as #22 on the Wi-fi Warrior Rank, his Mario play is something to be admired, as are the numbers that it got him. Five total first-place finishes sit atop his stat line; at one of those, Smashing Legends 38, he defeated Stroder, Le Elin, and ForbiddenOne to come out on top. Kury is far more than your average Mario, and he'll prove it to you every time he plays. Do yourself a favor and don't get burned.

#21

Thanks to his main, a lot of things about Lalo are shocking, but his spot on the Wi-fi Warrior Rank isn't one of them. The top Pikachu in the business delivered a spectacular season for the inaugural WWR, stringing together victory after victory to reach #21. His performances included a 2nd place finish at Smashurai Circuit Weekly 6, which featured victories over Copper and Otakuni; between three other B-tier event wins, he took sets from Le Elin, Grayclash, ZekeTRP, Jhon, and Sharp. Lalo is a master of his craft, and for as long as he's playing the game, he'll keep delivering electrifying sets and bolting straight for the top 50.

 

Congratulations to #21-30 of the Wi-fi Warrior Rank! The next reveal comes on Friday with #11-20, this time at a new time of 2:30 PM EDT. We're two reveals away from the end! We can't wait to reveal the 20 players remaining. Good luck to all!
