Our Super Smash Bros. Melee talent, Weston “Westballz” Dennis, has been voted the 8th best player in the world in the SSBMRank, an annual ranking of the top 100 players in the game. Weston, who repeats his 2015 placement, had some solid tournament runs over the year, including a top-eight finish at Evo 2016, the most important event on the calendar.
This year’s SSBMRank panelists comprised over 50 people, between players, well-known community figures and volunteers, who rated the players based on several criteria.
Quizzed on his 8th place in the ranking, Weston said: “What an honour to be ranked at the top of my game for another year. It means a lot to me that all of my hard work and dedication gets recognised. This brings in a new wave of confidence and determination going into the new year. I am excited to represent G2 and show the world we are a world class team.”
