OrionRank Late Summer Top 50 – Announcement and Honorable Mentions.

Hello, all! As with the first four months of 2017, Freezie & I are here to present another iteration of OrionRank! In this iteration, we will be ranking the top players based on set histories and performances from very late December 2016 to Shine 2017, meaning we’re using 8 months.

I decided to use pertinent data up to Super Smash Con 2017.
