So, get this, right? The Wii Party rankings. They don't make any sense. Correct? Nelly is Beginner, Cole is Advanced...
For those who aren't part of the Discord, HEYimHeroic found out why the rankings were like that. Wanna know? OK.
Nintendo... used... the internal datas... they went through the damn pattern of them... and went from Beginner to Master. The rankings were basically freaking randomized.
They started a pattern from Saburo all the way up to Marisa on internal datas.
Wanna know something else? If the randomizer started from Marisa, things would have been the total opposite.
So no, the rankings are not based on anything. Nintendo just got lazy.
