Ladies and gentlemen! Boys and girls! EventHubs lists the top 10 current SSF4 AE v2012 players - voice your opinions on Twitter: #sf4rank

Posted by Steven 'Dreamking23' Chavez • January 20, 2014 at 9:01 a.m. PST

We're back with another top 50 players list, and this time it's for the most popular game on the tournament circuit right now: Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition v2012.


The EventHubs team came together and voted on each player based on tournament results, player skill across the globe, and personal opinion. The players listed here have performed at big events consistently, and players who haven't traveled much outside of their region were not included because it's a bit too difficult to judge them based on their performances only in the local area.

Note: Players like -6 (Roku), Leslie and others, although great, weren't factored into this list simply because they hadn't participated in enough big events and/or traveled outside of their region often enough to be judged accurately.

We gave each player a score between 1 - 10, then averaged all of the numbers together. Today we have player #10 - player #1 listed. We have also listed accomplishments for each player, and have limited them to 4 per person in order to avoid complications.

If you'd like to join the discussion, or want to tear our heads off for our choices, you can voice your opinions about our list on Twitter using the hashtag "#sf4rank." You can also share your thoughts in our comments section, as usual.
