The PGR v1 lists the world's top 50 Super Smash Bros. for Wii U smashers during the period of January 2015 through May 2016, as compiled by PG Stats.

Methodology[edit]

The first list was compiled by 48 panelists and the PG Stats team -- Dom, suar, and Zan and took into account tournament results from Apex 2015 to 2GGT: Fresh Saga. The players' rankings are purely based on tournament placings and set counts, with a heavy emphasis on 7 major events: Apex 2015, CEO 2015, EVO 2015, Paragon Los Angeles 2015, The Big House 5, GENESIS 3 and Pound 2016

It also includes a separate and subjective metric voted on by the panelists referred to as "X-Factor", which follows a more similar approach to Melee It On Me's SSBMRank. A player's X-Factor is the difference between their PGR ranking and their spot on the list that the surveyors rated them at. A player with a very positive X-Factor would theoretically be a notable figure in the community feared by top players but would not have the results to back them up. On the other hand, a player with a negative X-Factor would be somewhat of a "hidden boss" showing impressive results and wins with a lack of acknowledgement from the community. The full list was revealed after LVL UP EXPO 2016 and Get On My Level 2016, but was created before those tournaments started, making some of the set records and notable wins exclusive to the time beforehand.

Panelists[edit]

The subjective components used to determine the X-Factors were derived from a survey that was sent to over 50 community members from around the world.

The United States, Canada, Mexico, Japan, Europe, and Australia were represented among the 48 individuals who were surveyed that answered back.
