EventHubs lists top 50 Ultra Street Fighter 4 players, #10 - #01 - voice your opinions on Twitter: #USF4rank

Posted by Steven 'Dreamking23' Chavez • January 16, 2015 at 7:10 p.m. PST

Important note: Today we'll be revealing the top 10 live, one at a time, every 20 minutes. So be sure to stay tuned here at EventHubs to catch all of the players as they're announced.


That's right, folks! You read that headline correctly. Tonight we're back with the top 50 players in Ultra Street Fighter 4, beginning from when the game first dropped back in June of last year.

The EventHubs team met up once again to vote on each player based on tournament results since the last time we compiled this list, factoring in 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.

We have given each player a score between 1 - 10, then averaged all of the numbers together. Today we have the top 10 Ultra Street Fighter 4 players listed.

If you'd like to join the discussion, or want to tear our heads off for our choices (again), you can voice your opinions about our list on Twitter using the hashtag "#USF4rank." You can also share your thoughts in our comments section, as usual.
