SSBB Rank rates top 20 Super Smash Bros. Brawl players in the world

The 2018-2019 SSBB Rank has rated the top 20 Super Smash Bros. Brawl players in the world. The rankings were revealed in a video uploaded on Feb. 10, which was shared by @BrawlBois on Twitter.

Competition in Brawl is sparse; there have only been six major tournaments in the past two years. This is why the SSBB Rank covered a two-year period, unlike the rankings for Melee or Ultimate. Even with a limited sample size, though, the community has still created this ranking to recognize Brawl‘s best active competitors.

The 2018-2019 SSBB Rank is as follows:

  1. Nairoby “Nairo” Quezada
  2. Jason “ANTi” Bates
  3. Cody D.
  4. Wyatt “ADHD” Beekman
  5. Vishal “V115” Balaram
  6. Joshua “Pelca” Bedoya
  7. Hunter “Player-1” Rogers
  8. Mike “Mikeray4” Ray
  9. Jestise “MVD” Negron
  10. “686M”
  11. Yuki “Etsuji” Kajihara
  12. Joseph “Seagull Joe” Raucher
  13. Rudolph “Vex Kasrani” Straiton IV
  14. Peter “Poyo” M.
  15. Kyle “Gunnermaniac” Runnels
  16. Aksel “Bike” Arntzen
  17. Zeyan “Zan” Nizami
  18. Astrit “Gardex” Radenovic Mehmeti
  19. Dan “Hinkage” Ray
  20. Tanner “Figy” Trzepacz

Honorable Mentions:

  • Christina “Chia” Korsak
  • Kai “Hudet” Liabøtrø

The 2018-2019 SSBB Rank

Nairo maintains a stronghold in Brawl‘s competitive scene, finishing at No. 1 on the 2018-2019 SSBB Rank. He won half of the major tournaments from this season (GOML 2018, Super Smash Con 2018, and GOML 2019). Cody claimed 1st at two majors (Return to Subspace and Return to Subspace 2). ANTi won Brawl‘s most recent major, Super Smash Con 2019.

686M was the highest-placing newcomer, debuting at No. 10 in the world on the SSBB Rank. His breakout performance was at Super Smash Con 2019, where he placed 4th. There, he defeated MVD, Zan, Poyo, and Etsuji.

Norway boasts one of the most active Super Smash Bros. Brawl scenes outside of North America. As a result, two players from Norway (Bike and Gardex) appeared on the SSBB Rank. Another Norwegian player, Hudet, appeared as an honorable mention. Notably, Bike and Gardex had appeared as honorable mentions on the 2016-2017 rankings.

Unsurprisingly, multiple Brawl players dropped out of the top 20 due to inactivity. Most notable among these were Saleem “Salem” Young and Vincent “Vinnie” Cannino. Both Salem and Vinnie were top 5 players in the previous season.
