MKLeo still tops the PGRU rankings ⚡⚡⚡ Esports news, analytics, reviews on WePlay! The latest news on WePlay!

Panda Global has finally released the entire PGRU rankings for 2019 Season 2 after weeks of dropping it piecemeal. Most Valuable Gaming player, Leonardo “MKLeo” Lopez is once more the top-ranked Super Smash Bros. Ultimate player in the world. 

The PGRU top 10 received three new entries with little movement within it. Besides MKLeo, rank 10, Paris “Light” Ramirez also retained his position from last season. Enrique “Maister” Hernández Solís is also completely new to the rankings, while three others dropped from their former positions. 

Here are the most accomplished players in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate at the end of 2019: 

  1. Leonardo “MKLeo” Lopez 
  2. Ezra “Samsora” Morris (+1)
  3. Gavin “Tweek” Dempsey (-1)
  4. Nairoby “Nairo” Quezada (+4)
  5. Tyler “Marss” Martins (-2)
  6. Enrique “Maister” Hernández Solís (New)
  7. Sota “Zackray” Okada  (+5)
  8. William “Glutonny” Belaid (+6)
  9. Samuel “Dabuz” Buzby (-2)
  10. Paris “Light” Ramirez  

MKLeo took first place in five big Majors, including EVO 2019, Super Smash Con 2019: Ultimate, and 2GG: Kongo Saga. He was then also able to finish second at Mainstage and Shine 2019. Scheduled to compete at Genesis 7, it will be his first tournament of the year, where we will see if MKLeo still has what it takes to dominate the scene once more.  

Light's position also didn't change from last season, maintaining his 10th spot like some gatekeeper for the top echelon. He almost won Glitch 7 and failed to secure a top 8 finish at only one Major in the Fall season. 

Dabuz, Marss, and Tweek all dropped from their former positions, with both Dabuz and Marss falling by two spots and Tweek, one. The third-ranked player failed to defeat MKLeo at any event for the season except Low Tier City 7. He also was unable to win any S-tier tournament, finishing second at both EVO 2019 and 2GG: Kongo Saga

In second place is Samsora, who managed to beat MKLeo twice at Shine 2019. Taking wins also from Tweek and Marss helped him surpass them in the rankings. In fourth place is Nairo, who came first at Mainstage, third at Shine 2019, fourth at Big House, and fifth at Super Smash Con 2019

While Glutonny and Zackray are the two new players from last season to make it into the top 10, Maister made the PGRU for the first time ranked 6th. Securing several top finishes at Major tournaments not only shot him up the ranks but also made him notorious with his character of choice, Mr. Game & Watch 


Genesis 7 will be the first test for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate players that not only want to maintain their presence in the rankings but also those that hope to join it for the first time. The Smash Major will begin tomorrow, from January 24-26.
