October 16, 2016

Methodology updated. 16 round Regional Championships changed to any Regional Championship  with 512+ attendance. Original intention was for flighted Regionals to be worth the extra point, but organizers won’t be flighting Regionals at 512, so just making 512+ worth the higher level. Also removed Top 64 points from these events because reporting will be very difficult to get.

Igor Costa added into the rankings with his past World Championship accomplishments.

Updated with the results of the Orlando, Florida Regional Championship.
