The 3.6 Rank has rated the top 50 Project M version 3.6 players of all time. Ryan “Sabre” Weinberg revealed the rankings via Smashboards from Feb. 17 – April 2. Version 3.6 was the final version of Super Smash Bros. Brawl mod Project M prior to Project+. As a result, 3.6 was the primary version of Project M used by the competitive community for about four years.

Though Project+ began development in 2018, it has become increasingly popular since the release of version 2.0 earlier this month. To commemorate this next phase for Project M, Sabre created a ranking to honor the best players of its previous phase.

The Project M 3.6 rankings are as follows:

  1. Xayya “ThundeRzReiGN” Thammavongsa
  2. Jonathan Sosa

A closer look at the 3.6 Rank

ThundeRzReiGN earned his spot at No. 1 on the 3.6 Rank through several years of consistently high-level performances. He was considered the best Project M player in the world throughout both 2016 and 2017. While he was semi-retired in 2018, he still earned a spot on every PMRank, never ranking lower than No. 4.

As the only other players to finish 1st on a PMRank, Sosa and Malachi understandably round out the top 3. Malachi has finished in the top 5 for every Project M season since the PMRank began in 2016. While Sosa was inactive in 2019, he was consistently ranked top 3 in the world from 2016 to 2018.

Considering he is a top 25 Melee player, it is impressive that lloD has found ever greater success with PM. He is one of many active Super Smash Bros. Melee players to reach even greater heights in Project M. Others include Forrest, Professor Pro, Morsecode762, and ilovebagelz. Conversely, Hungrybox only finished as No. 50 on the 3.6 Rank, despite being the best Melee player in the world.
