The Rock-Paper-Scissors (RPS) world rankings are a fascinating way to keep track of the best RPS players in the world. Started in the early 2000s, the rankings have become a staple of the RPS community, and every year new players rise up the ranks, while others fall behind.
So, who’s on top in 2021?
At the top of the RPS world rankings is Takeshi Nakamura from Japan. Nakamura has consistently been one of the best RPS players in the world for several years now, and his skills have won him many RPS tournaments over the years.
Nakamura is closely followed by the UK’s Murray “The Machine” McChesney, who is also one of the most skilled RPS players in the world. McChesney’s nickname stems from his near-perfect execution of the “Machine” strategy, which involves repeatedly throwing the same hand gesture over and over again.
Another player to watch in 2021 is Canadian player Joel “RoShamBo” Shafer, who has been rising up the RPS world rankings in recent years. Shafer is known for his quick reflexes and his ability to read his opponents’ moves, and he is quickly becoming one of the top RPS players in the world.
In addition to these top players, there are many other RPS players around the world who are making a name for themselves in 2021. From the United States to Japan, Europe to Australia, there are RPS players everywhere who are honing their skills and climbing the rankings.
But who’s falling behind in 2021?
As new players rise up the ranks, some of the old guard are beginning to slip. One notable player who has been struggling in recent years is Germany’s Felix “Fist” Degenhardt. Degenhardt was once one of the best RPS players in the world, but his skills have eroded over time, and he has fallen down the rankings.
Another player who has been struggling in recent years is the UK’s Paul “The Rock” Beaumont. Beaumont was once known as one of the best RPS players in the world, but he has been plagued by injuries and has been unable to maintain his position in the rankings.
Despite these challenges, the RPS world rankings remain as exciting as ever, with new players rising up the ranks and old players fighting to stay at the top. Whether you’re a casual RPS fan or a die-hard player, the world rankings offer a fascinating glimpse into the constantly evolving world of RPS.
