I see a lot of people talking about ELO in Smash, (bronze, gold, plat, etc.) but I never understood what it meant. Does anyone have any answers on how to get an ELO? Like is there a competitive scene I haven't found yet? If someone could tell me it would be greatly appreciated. :)

  • I also had no idea what ELO meant, having played Melee since day 1. But doing a small google search, I found this reddit article. It also links a wiki article on what the "Elo" rating system actually is. Not sure if this is the answer you were looking for.

The ranking system they are most likely referring to is Smashladder, an online community that uses the Dolphin emulator to run matches.
