The OrionRank Ultimate has ranked the top 75 Super Smash Bros. Ultimate players in Europe. “Barnard’s Loop” and “EasyFreezie” created the ranking and shared it to Twitter with a graphic on December 9.

An algorithm determined the results of Europe’s OrionRank Ultimate, as opposed to a panel of voters. It does not consider any online tournament results. Instead, it takes into account offline events from January 2019 ‒ March 2020. This effectively includes the entirety of Smash Ultimate’s lifespan before the coronavirus pandemic.

Breaking down the OrionRank Ultimate Europe top 75

Glutonny’s position on the OrionRank Ultimate as the best player in Europe is by no means surprising. He has been top 15 worldwide since the beginning of Ultimate and peaked at No. 8 globally last season. Glutonny has beaten Leonardo “MkLeo” Lopez Perez, Tyler “Marss” Martins, Sota “Zackray” Okada, Paris “Light” Ramirez, and Takuto “Kameme” Ono.

Likewise, Mr.R’s status as No. 2 in Europe is well deserved. He is the only European besides Glutonny to appear on the PGRU, and he did so both PGRU seasons. Mr.R has yet to match his heights from Smash 4, but still boasts wins over many high-level opponents. These include MkLeo, Nairoby “Nairo” Quezada, Eric “ESAM” Lew, and Isami “T” Ikeda.

Leffen’s relative inactivity prevented him from appearing on the last European Smash Ranking. In addition, he narrowly missed top 50 last fall, becoming the first European to appear in the PGRU’s Area 51. However, Leffen’s performances were good enough to secure a top 5 finish on Europe’s OrionRank Ultimate.

Leffen has beaten Gavin “Tweek” Dempsey, Enrique “Maister” Hernández Solís, Saleem “Salem” Young, Chris “WaDi” Boston, and Mr.R. Impressively, he did so while remaining a top 5 Super Smash Bros. Melee player in the world.
