Wi-fi Warrior Rank v2: #11-20

Cloudhead - December 3, 2018

The Wi-fi Warrior Rank is a top 50 ranking devoted to the online Smash 4 scene, a global community where hundreds, perhaps thousands of unique players throw down and show their skills every day. For this v2 season, we've collected data from nine series spanning from July to this November, and we're releasing our top 50 in time to go full-force into the new Smash Bros. Ultimate! Read here for more information on the Wi-fi Warrior Rank and the weeklies that contribute to it, and join the Wi-fi Warrior Central discord to stay updated on its release.

The top 50 will be unveiled in groups of 10 every other day starting on Tuesday, November 27th. Stay tuned to SSBWorld.com to make sure you don’t miss any of the reveals!

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.

#20

Starting off this reveal of the WWRv2 is Horse, everyone’s favorite equine Bayonetta player. One of very few players to keep their exact same spot as last season, Horse showed that his consistency is nearly unmatched. His uncommon character combination of Bayonetta and Ness brought him results from almost every single series, including multiple top 3 placements at B and C tiers and a multitude of WWRv1 wins to back them up. With how good he is at this game, there's no doubt that he'll gallop his way to the top in Ultimate.

 

#19

Coming in at #19 is IcyMist, whose drop from first place may surprise those expecting to see her at the top. Her season began at Smashurai’s final two majors, but ended the EVA Monthly and the Dojo Finale at an uncharacteristic 9th and 17th place, respectively. But after a quiet couple months, she hit the attendance minimum and vaulted herself back into the top 20 by winning Chemdev Saga, defeating Freckles, Zaxel, yeti, and Loading in doing so. As her perfect X-Factor shows, she is still regarded by top players and organizers as the best Wi-fi player out there, and her final performance at Dev Saga all but guarantees she still has the #1 in her. After such a quiet final season, all expectations are that the world’s best Smash 4 Samus main will rise back to the top echelon in Ultimate.

 

#18

Fitting for his name, Frawg takes 18th place on the WWRv2 after a massive jump in the rankings. He solidified himself as a candidate for best Bayonetta in the scene, finding first-place finishes at both Eclipse and Smashing Legends. Furthermore, he took several wins against other contenders for the title, including Chusam, Horse, and Chemdev. Rising to prominence both here and in his home region, Frawg will look to take the next step in his ribbiting journey to the top.

 

#17

Teleporting into the #17 spot is none other than the WWR's #1 fan, Zenkai! Nobody should be surprised to see this beast coming in as the highest placing Mewtwo main on this season's ranking. With incredible placings throughout many series, such as top 4 at the A-tier Mushroom Kingdom Edition and victories in other B and C tiers, Zenkai is seemingly unstoppable. His wins over Zaxel, Urameshi, Chemdev and many others ensure no one is confused at how he's reached this ranking. Always on the rise, Zenkai is poised to reach even greater heights in the new game - beyond a shadow of a doubt.

 

#16

Here to get the famous Elton John song stuck in your head once again is Bennyandthejets, the R.O.B. main who’s almost synonymous with the Wi-Fi scene. Coming in at the same position as last season, Benny's low attendance was the primary force keeping him from being higher on the list. Playing almost exclusively at major events, he collected results such as 4th place at Robin Edition and 9th place at the EVA Monthly. His X-Factor of +11 demonstrates that his great skill is still well known across the community. Although Smash 4 may be coming to an end, Benny's reign over the WiFi scene is surely not going anywhere.

 

#15

Burst eggsplodes onto the scene, with his cast of Mushroom Kingdom stars earning him 15th place on the WWRv2. His results included a victory at the B-tier major Zenkai Saga, where he outdueled ZekeTRP in the Yoshi ditto to take Grand Finals; he also scored 5th place at Mushroom Kingdom Edition, tying for the best result out of all Kingdom mains. The first player on the list to have scored an elusive IcyMist win, his accomplishments make it easy to see how he rose this high. With a host of trusted mains to choose from, and an even bigger list of new faces, Burst will go into Ultimate with as great a potential as anyone.

 

#14

Four Yoshi players made the WWR, but once again, it’s ZekeTRP reigning supreme. Once again, Zeke proved capable at the events where it mattered most, taking third place at the Smashurai Dojo Finale, second at an A-tier SL, and winning a number of other events over the course of the season. They say Yoshi on Wi-fi is a whole different beast, and he’s living proof of why. Whether he sticks with his trusty pink dinosaur or moves on to a new character, Zeke’s talents will make him a force to be reckoned with for a long time to come.

 

#13

Another returnee from last season, Mikerowave makes 13th place finishing on one of the hottest stretches in the scene. After a strong start to the season that saw him defeat RobinGG and nearly take an Eclipse for the first time, he kept up solid performances all around. It wasn’t until the final week, however, that he tore to 9th place at One More Game, blasting past Zaxel, Pokelam, and Horse to do so. With a deadly Fox and Bayonetta team to lean on, don’t get it twisted - Mike will be the one dropping you.

 

#12

Making himself at home at #12 is Pokelam, who rose from an HM last season to the best Villy in the business this time around. While he boasts first place finishes at Eclipse and TVS and a solid 17th place at OMG, his most impressive stats are his wins - he took sets from 10 of last season’s top 20 players. This includes a whopping five sets over Blank, and two over RobinGG in a season that saw him become one of the few true threats to him in bracket. Villager might look cute and friendly, but don’t let your guard down around Pokelam; he’ll make you sorry for ever crossing him.

 

#11

The final player today is Sharp, who jumped 13 spots from last season to take #11 on the WWRv2. He made a name for himself with wins at four different active series, three of which included B-tiers; and one, SL Monthly 11, standing as a major. Coupled with set wins over Copper, RobinGG, Chemdev, and Zenkai, Sharp solidified himself as one of the most consistent threats online. He enters Ultimate as one of the most feared names on Wi-fi, and he’s certainly cut out to defend his title.

 

Congratulations to #11-20 of the Wi-fi Warrior Rank v2! The only thing left to do is reveal the top 10 players of this season. You probably know by now who they are, but where will they fall on the rankings? Tune in this Wednesday at 3 PM EDT to be here for the final reveal, and thank you for all your support thus far!
