Insight on how the season rankings work:

v5 state:
  • The top players, particularly MKLeo, Dabuz, Tweek, and Nairo, are taking the majority of majors / regionals in v5. Salem, while still placing high, seems to have faltered quite a bit, with loses against players ranked a lot lower than him, even losing to the unranked player Koolaid 3-0. The players ZeRo and JK, will no longer compete in tournaments until an unspecified amount of time.
  • A lot of the earlier PGR'ed events this season took place at Japan.
  • Fatality, who dropped in v4 due to a lack of Momocon and Civil War-esque placings, placed very well in Frostbite and in King of the Springs 3, which may result in a increase in the future. Mistake seems to be stepping up to his first-half-of-v4-run, with a very strong run in both Genesis and Frostbite, even taking out the current best Bayo Salem. He is contention with Tweek for the best Bayo in the world, and is now considered one of the world's best players. Kameme placed very well in EVO Japan 2018, which may result in an increase in the future. Cosmos' and Samsora's run at Frostbite shows that they are not done placing high.
  • It seems that the season will mostly run on C Tiers as a result of the new formula for determining the tournaments rankings, which is also added on the fact that there is no tournament so far that gathers all the top players in one event (notably Frostbite suffered from this).
  • Two of the main events of this season is 2GG: Hyrule Saga and CEO 2018 (emphasis on both being A+ tiers). Both are very stacked, alongside being a determining factor for the rankings of many characters (most notably the LoZ characters).

ZeRo retired, so Elegant is #10 :roll:
Doesn't matter. The rankings shows the ranked players of the season, and ZeRo was very well existing in the PRG v4. Even if he retired, he is still technically ranked number 1 in the world.
For this season for far, Elegant, while still obtaining good results, hasn't backed up his 11th placing so far, as he came up short in Genesis by Sheik in general. The season is still young, so he still has many opportunities to obtain similar results from v4.

The_Bookworm The_Bookworm , I wanted to ask if the recent Rikabura 9 that took place in Japan qualifies for this list. I heard it got removed for some reason.
It doesn't. It got removed from the list (don't know why), so it not going here. Midwest Mayhem was a B Tier event, until I learned recently that they reverted it back to a C Tier. I hope they don't do that again. Still hyped about this weekend having an A Tier event.:)

Crying about dogs and sonic nerfs
I'm hoping KEN gets a big boost this season, he seemed to have real trouble with ZeRo, but he was his main problem. Unfortunately, he hasn't been doing as much recently (as far as I can tell) which hurts his chances of staying in top 8 or advancing
Also, is it just me or did Raito find a hidden stash of "Git Gud" pills this season?

He is probably going to drop off. After the first two quarters of the season, he hasn't participated in much events this season. He also hasn't participated in any USA events this season, which is where all the majors and supermajors are.
