Unlike the PlayStation Ranking, the Xbox Ranking does not have such a distinct European imprint. Hong Kong’s ‘Jesus0716’ is top of the pile, just ahead of Saudi Arabia’s FIFA eWorld Cup Champion 2018, ‘Msdossary’.
Best respresented countries in the FIFA 19 Global Series Rankings
Germany, France and Spain lead the way, each with three players in the top 15.
The ranking is still very evenly balanced at the start of the season, but Hong Kong, Saudi Arabia, United Kingdom and Mexico each have one player in the top four.
What the experts say
One of the players to keep an eye on is 16-year-old ‘DullenMike’, who plays for BAP Gaming. It looks like he’s going to be unbelievable this year, especially in an already very strong German FIFA scene. He qualified for the FUT Champions Cup in Bucharest, the FUT Cup #3 and for the Licensed Qualifying Event in January.
Another player I’ve been watching closely is ‘TheStrxnger’, who plays for FC Basel. It’s no surprise that he’s completely dominating the FIFA scene again. After finishing as runner-up at the Continental Cup, he also qualified for other tournaments.
