Street Fighter 6's competitive scene is a lively one, and often houses some of the best fighting game players around. All competitive players are fiercely fighting for their place at the top of the leaderboard, but not everyone can take the top spot. It's because of this that the rank distribution is so varied each month.
Street Fighter 6's ranks are separated into eight Leagues, each with their own individual rankings within. If you're hopping into Street Fighter 6's ranked mode then know that not every player might start right at the bottom. Before you get assigned your starting League, you'll need to take part in 10 placement matches, which will be adjusted in difficulty depending on experience.
For some players, knowing how the ranks are distributed at any given time can be useful information. It might also put some minds at rest to see a large portion of the community having trouble within the same rank. Below, we'll go over the current rank distribution in Street Fighter 6.
Street Fighter 6 Rank Distribution
Thanks to a very handy Reddit page, posted by u/McDopple, we're able to see the Street Fighter 6 rank distribution data breakdown. Here's what things are looking like from the end of August, going into September 2023:
|Rank Group||Players||Player %||Percentile (%)|
It's important to note that this is a more basic breakdown. Each rank group is also separated by its individual ranks, except for Master. For example, the number of players in Diamond 5 are, unsurprisingly, significantly smaller than those in Diamond 1. This month, Diamond 5 had 4,628 players, where as Diamond 1 had 80,914, accounting for the majority of data for the Diamond Rank Group in the above table. The most populated Rank Group is Platinum, accounting for roughly 22% of all ranked players.
