Welcome to Australia's official Smash WiiU Power Rankings directory.
To avoid clutter in the boards, promote regional connections + discussions and our oft infrequent updates giving opportunities for fair regional appreciation we have a single thread to cover all of Australia =)
There is an amount of respect and tact expected within here, especially towards other regions.

NSW PR Q1 2016


This Power Ranking is based on results from the last three and a half months of Sydney tournaments. To be considered for a placement, a player must have attended at least 4 Sydney tournaments in this PR period. For this reason, we were unable to place Scott, Shaya and Patv (the real honourable mentions, amirite), who each lack attendance in different parts of the period, even though they could have very likely made it on by simply maintaining their performances. Baker has also been absent for the entirety of the period. As a result there were a lot of players left in close contention for the tail end of the ranking, with the two honourable mentions on the image being those closest but still just barely outdone, and also barely outdoing the rest. The slightly less honourable but still largely mentionable include (in alphabetical order): Bjay, Fruit, Invisi, Lanatra, Pogo and Zedi.

  1. Killy – Killy has proven time and time again, why he is the number one player in this state, with his quick adaptive play and the ability to always bring something new to a match. His mastery over Sonic’s movement options has steadily improved and ability to pull out multiple different characters in tournament to secure wins cements this.
  2. RandySavage (+2)– Someone who used to be revered as this state’s dark horse has become one of its strongest competitors. What Randy lacks in strong character choices, he makes up for in his insane pressure and reads. It’s extremely rare to see Randy drop sets or even games to anyone outside the top 5, and with Charizard buffs rolling out every patch this isn’t expected to change.
  3. Kira – Kira maintains her number 3 position on this PR with extremely strong performances in and out of her home state. Never one to let victory slip easily to anyone who isn’t already a strong force in the scene, she has now picked up Bayonetta and is now starting to dominate what used to be her weaker matchups.
  4. MM (-2)– He has dropped a couple of places on this list over an experimental period, but still presents an iron wall to anyone he faces. His Mario has been a focus for many recent tournaments, but his Palutena and Mii Brawler (Kount K.K.) mainstays are still capable of beating anyone.
  5. Scarpian – Scarpian has seen a few rough losses this period, but when on point his Ryu is still as fearsome as ever, and very much able to take down people often rated above him. Never count out this man when the momentum shifts.
  6. SaucyDancer (+3)– Do you like Mewtwo? Well, you should, or you could end up on the receiving end of Saucy’s tricky plays. Saucy has only had brief showings this period but has proven himself well, also managing to take a tournament win and slaying some of the scene’s giants.
  7. Luco (NEW)– A lot of doubt was on Luco during his return to the scene after a 1 year hiatus. This all changed when he took 1st place at his first tournament, with a big loser’s run and defeating MM and Killy along the way. Since then he has been slowly becoming inactive again but his few performances were deemed worthy enough to include him here.
  8. Boundaries (NEW)– Once a player who didn’t pose much of a threat, this young up and comer has been applying himself well to becoming the best Bayonetta around and has very quickly been snatching up some strong tournament results and crazy upsets.
  9. NINjA (NEW)– NINjA has been quietly climbing the ranks of late. Her Marth play is improving rapidly and she has taken a few names in the process. She hasn’t been losing to anyone beneath her as of late and has become a staple of top 8 at Sydney events.
  10. Lunacy (NEW)– Much like the two before her, Lunacy is a new addition to the rankings after some really impressive performances and proving herself capable of beating some of Sydney’s best. While not as consistent, her Cloud and Lucas are never to be taken lightly as she has had some of the most clutch moments this period.


    Panel: MM, Randy, Killy, Scarpian, Shaya


Text version:
1. Shaya (Zero Suit Samus, Marth)
2. Kira (Zero Suit Samus, Rosalina)
3. M (Palutena)
4. Randy Savage (Luigi, Charizard)
5. iKill (Sonic)
6. RJ (Peach)
7. patv (Diddy Kong, Donkey Kong)
8. Scarpian (Captain Falcon)

Thanks to @Jae for the fantastic image (alt) :D

NEW! - Updated - On the 3rd of August 2016

PANELISTS : Dean - Jei - Attila - Pudge - Duon - Extra

The panelists have discussed all the players within the Victorian community and considered the wins and losses of the players in all relevant tournaments since the Invitational. This is in an effort to put together a list of the top 10 players in the state. This aims to stimulate the community to improve the overall skill level, as well as encourage tournament attendance for those who feel overlooked. If you have any queries concerning the rankings, feel free to PM any one of us. It's solely up to the community to determine whether or not the list is accurate enough to be considered 'official.' Updates will be conducted as substantial information from majors and regionals begins to outdate the current list.


POSITION CRITERIA
Tournament performance - It's not only about how high a person placed, but rather who they defeated and who they lost to. Rankings take into consideration a person's collective Singles performances with more weight behind the more recent results.
Consistency of Results - If a person has done well or poorly in a singular tournament, it is not enough to warrant a major shift in their respective rank. A single high placing doesn't guarantee they are genuinely at that level of play. On the other hand, a person who has continually produced similar results over many tournaments will be assessed accordingly.
Calibre of competition - Tournaments which have highly ranked or respected participants (from either local or out of state regions) will be given greater weight. If key players are missing from an event, this is taken into consideration.
Players must be a current resident of Victoria.

ACT Smash for Wii U Power Ranking - v2.5, July 2016



Text Version:
  1. Waveguider :4wiifit::4greninja: (±0) - All hail our lord Wavegod, Australia's first sponsored Smash 4 player! Recognised around the world for his trademark Wii Fit Trainer and combo-oriented Greninja, Waveguider displays pure domination over ACT and impressive results at majors including being the second placed Australian at BAM 8. The top spot going to Waveguider should come as a surprise to nobody as he remains a contender for the title of best player in the country.
  2. Maplemage :4falcon::4mario: (+1) - Maplemage always places highly in the ACT with a host of different characters, including first place finishes at Capital Smash 12, Andrometa and RotA 7. He boasts recent wins over everyone below him on this PR as well as the at-the-time #2 player in Sydney Jeese. As such, Maple has moved up to the #2 spot.
  3. Atyeo :4fox: (-1) - Despite being on the receiving end of a few upsets Atyeo is still a top player in his own right, with notable wins against Maplemage, Sriks and interstate talent. Only time will tell if he is able to hold onto his #3 spot following his recent character switch.
  4. Pazx :4diddy: (±0) - A player who screams consistency, as despite a poor record against the top 2 ACT players Pazx simply does not lose to any of the players ranked below him. He has finished in the top 3 in five of his past six tournament outings including first place at RotA 5, with the one exception being a respectable 4th place at Capital Smash 13.
  5. PhoenixRave :4megaman::4duckhunt:(±0) - A player known for counterpicking characters such as Duck Hunt Duo and Peach in tournament, Phoenixrave comes in at a solid 5th place. Aside from trading sets (1-1) with Skylar his only losses in this period have been to Maplemage and Pazx while at the same time boasting wins over Atyeo, Sriks, Skylar and Saucydancer.
  6. Sriks :4shulk:(NEW!) - Despite a shaky start immediately after his return from Singapore, Sriks has still managed to accumulate an impressive number of wins including Scarpian, Kristoph, Atyeo, Maplemage and Groose, as well as destroying several players on the Wollongong PR. Strong out of region results including a phenomenal second place finish at Final Fight 3 means that this player is a force to be reckoned with.
  7. SJ Groose :4fox::4dk: (OLD) - Groose is a player of very high peaks both in and out of Canberra, with impressive wins against players including ****ashi, Atyeo, Skylar, Sriks and Enny. Despite this, he is a player of much inconsistency, oftentimes drowning in pools when he has a poor performance.
  8. Wiiman :4zelda: (OLD) - After a short hiatus from the game and a brief transitional period as he got used to Zelda, Wiiman's results have been steadily climbing with this bottom tier character. He has notable wins over various strong players both at home and out of state, including taking sets from Luco, Dr. Ainuss, Quen, Skylar, Groose and Bogo.
  9. Bogo :4samus: (OLD) - The 9th and final player on the ACT PR v2.5, Bogoron is a fearsome competitor. One of Canberra's few remaining Brawl veterans, Bogo has recently adopted a new approach to the game as well as retiring his top tier Mario to return to characters he finds much more enjoyable to play including Game and Watch and most prominently Samus. He has wins over Wiiman and positive records against many of the unranked Canberra players.

PR has been getting stalled for months now, I think we had one ready to go as early as March but it always got put behind due to the volatility of results.
Heck this was "finalized" about 2 weeks ago and last weekend I had the great honour of groaning at the sight of everyone wanting to shake it up again after 1 local.

We've had people move away or stop actively entering events, beyond that there really was only 8 players who were consistently ahead of most of the pack. While afterwards there was an even larger blur (the joke about the closeness of 2nd-5th placement) of players that could take a 9th or 10th spot; results for them being manic, chaotic and all forming rival triangles~decagons. People in the top 8 on this PR barely have losses in bracket (we have a pools tradition of [belly] flopping and sharing elo) to anyone else outside it locally.

Hello

Seeing as nobody else in Perth is active on smashboards anymore I will post our horribly out of date (July 1st) and essentially redundant PR just to show people we're sort of active about these things :D.



Honourable mentions: Maribro, Connor, Elemental, Poppt1
Panelists: FM Marty, Joel, Exor, Kevin, JonCheee, Maribro

New PR will be coming soon I guess and considering there's gonna be 6 people coming off the PR expect big changes

Removed due to inactivity: Shaya, RJ
Can't add because nobody knows what state he is or where to put him: Atyeo

Sydney has a large tier of up and coming players that regularly place just under PR players and are only dropping sets to PR players or players in the same tier. We don't want those players to feel like their efforts are going unnoticed, so here's a list (in no particular order) of players within that tier.

Invisi: Invisi was next in line for 10th position on the PR, due to his consistent results at Sydney events. While he had an outstanding showing at SXC, his at home results led him to being edged out by Enn. His Jigglypuff regularly takes games from PR players, but he needs to convert some of those game wins into set wins to move onto the PR.

Bjay + Boundaries + Lunacy: Bjay, Boundaries, and Lunacy have all had good results at Sydney events, and have taken sets of each other, Enn, and Invisi. However, they all have too many losses to players within this tier which ruled them out for contention for a PR spot.

Zedi: Zedi has really worked on his game, with his general skill level rising throughout the entire PR period. He also has notable PR victories against Baker and Randy, however his regular set losses to players in this tier really held him back. Zedi needs to work on getting consistency in his sets against other players in this tier to have a better chance at PR next period.

Fontana + Doge: Both Fontana and Doge have had good results in Sydney tournaments, but their general lack of attendance at events has made it impossible to tell where they sit in regards to the tail end of the PR.

Pogo: Pogo started this period of PR consideration closer to the head of the pack of this tier, however other players in this tier have improved at a faster rate and started to outpace his improvement speed and, because of this, have a better record towards the end of the period.
