Daily Esports is proud to partner with the Wi-Fi Warrior Rank team once again to present the Wi-Fi Warrior Rank v6 (WWRv6)! The Wi-Fi Warrior Rank rates 50 Super Smash Bros. Ultimate players based on their performances at online tournaments. Check out the Wi-Fi Warrior Rank Discord to find out more about Smash Ultimate’s competitive online scene.
As we near the end of the rankings reveals, only the cream-of-the-crop remains. Notably, all of today’s players are returning WWR veterans. While some have similar placements as last season, others climbed all the way up from the 70s of the WWRv5.
Anyone who’s sat in a Sunday school class knows the story: the small, unassuming David takes down the titanic Goliath with nothing but a slingshot. Those in the Wi-Fi scene could pick out a resemblance to our No. 20, Elam “Pokelam” Rosario. Except, in addition to the slingshot, he’s got a net, some turnips and oh so many bowling balls. Pokelam is one of the few top 20 WWRv6 players who has yet to be ranked in his state or local region. Nevertheless, he spent this season doing what he’s done all throughout his five-season WWR streak: taking down the big names, slingshot in hand.
Pokelam’s season started on a high note with a top 8 finish at the S-tier Super Smash Galaxy. He picked up victories on Epic_Gabriel and Selkie along the way. Two weeks later he made top 8 again, this time with a 5th place finish at A-tier Zinc Tank #3. However, wins against WWR players eluded him this time around. Rather, it was at late season B-tiers where he made his biggest impacts.
First came Zenith’s High End Theory. After taking out Angel in Winners Quarters, Pokelam traded sets with ShinyMark all the way into the Grands reset, but got the last laugh and the tournament win. And though he didn’t win it as well, HABBY Birthday 2020 saw arguably his best collection of wins. He took out BestNess early and rode the momentum to oust Sharp and Yez. BestNess ultimately got his revenge in Grands, but Pokelam got massive value from that run all the same.
While the quarantine WWRs are dominated largely by offline titans, Pokelam is one of only three in the top 20 who’s been on every iteration of the ranking in Ultimate. He’s one of countless players who will be chomping at the bit when it’s safe to return to offline events. And many would argue he’s got the most to prove. But if his record against the big names here is any indication, he’s got it in him to take Tristate by storm as soon as this year. We hear New York’s looking for a new mayor anyway. Who better for that role than the best Villager in the region?
