Although there's no true online ranking mode in Guilty Gear Strive, it's considered to be quite an achievement to reach the hidden 11th "floor," better known as the celestial floor. Only the best of the best will ever be able to reach this floor.

A certain Tweet that has been blowing up indicated that Koyasu Koki, age 28, was successful in reaching the celestial floor in Guilty Gear Strive. This is notable as Koyasu Koki is the son of Koyasu Takehito, the voice actor for Zato-1 in Guilty Gear Xrd and Guilty Gear Strive.

"Thank you Zato! Thank you Father! Thank you ArcSys! I did itttt!" said Koyasu Koki according to Jiyuna's translation.

It seems that Koki is a Zato-1 player, which probably explains why he's thanking his dad for reaching the prestigious floor during his online sessions.

This is quite an accomplishment since Zato-1 is considered to be a very difficult character to pick up and play in Guilty Gear Strive. While it's true that Zato-1 is considered to be very strong in the current meta, there are easier and stronger characters that could be chosen.

It's easy to imagine that Koki might've specifically mained Zato-1 since his father is the voice actor for the character. Still, it seems that Koki has put in a lot of effort to master Zato-1 in a way that few have been able to.
