    Insight on how the season rankings work:


    To look forward to:
    GOML 2018 and Switchfest are the next major events.

    Current v5 state: The top players, particularly MKLeo, Dabuz, Tweek, and Nairo, are taking the majority of majors in v5. Salem, while still placing high, seems to have faltered a little bit. A lot of the earlier PGR'ed events this season took place at Japan. The players ZeRo and JK, will no longer compete in tournaments until an unspecified amount of time. Fatality, who dropped in v4 due to a lack of Momocon and Civil War 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. 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).
    That is what I got so far.

    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, 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.:)
