Spring 2019 PGRU
The Spring 2019 PGRU lists the best smashers for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, starting on February 1st, 2019 with Sumabato SP 2 and GENESIS 6 and ending on July 7th, 2019 with Albion 4, The Pinnacle 2019, and BigWinChampionship 2.
The first list is formulated exactly like Super Smash Bros. for Wii U's Panda Global Rankings, however the TTS has been altered a bit. There are now two different scales for tournaments: continental tournaments, which are based off of tournaments in the contintental United States, and international tournaments, which are based off of tournaments outside of the continental United States. The only difference between the two scales are that each entrant in the international tournaments is worth 1.25 points instead of 1. For example, a Canadian tournament with 160 entrants will barely meet the requirement for a C-Tier tournament, while an American tournament with 199 entrants, despite having more entrants than the Canadian tournament, will just be short for a C-Tier ranking. This is so that players outside of the United States can have a better chance to make the final list.
Past PGR rankings do not factor into the first list. As a result, outplacements were also factored into the ranking, as well as wins over players who would've been in the 51-100 range for the rankings had it gone up to that placement.

Hours before they began unveiling the regular top 50 rankings, PGStats released a list of players who most closely missed the cut for the Spring 2019 PGRU top 50, known as "Area 51." They were unranked between each other, and as such are all considered to be effectively ranked #51.
