winning more than losing, you're improving.
FALSE: You're getting better if your GSP is going up.
ACTUALLY: GSP for all characters is inflating every day (every hour if you restart your switch). This gives some players an illusion of steady improvement. The rate of increase is slowly increasing as well.
FALSE: Elite smash GSP levels vary from character to character.
ACTUALLY: All characters share the same increasing elite smash GSP.
FALSE: You're getting better because, these days, you can place new characters into elite smash more easily.
ACTUALLY: In patch 8.10 elite smash was recalculated to make it easier to enter. Originally elite smash represented the top 3%* of players, but now represents the top 9.1%* of players.
