+HOPE+, formerly known as SirShyGuy, is a Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Hero main from Denmark. He is considered as the best Hero main in Europe and one of the best players in Denmark. He previously mained Isabelle and was the best Isabelle solo-main in Europe and one of the best in the world. He is currently ranked 1st on the Danish Ultimate Power Rankings and has defeated players such as Koyu, SBF, Grove, otek, Klemenz, and ThymeBalloon.
+HOPE+ started out with Super Smash Flash 2 in 2010 which helped him get into Smash 4 in early 2015. Initially he spent most of his time on Anther's Ladder. However, he would meet fellow Danish player Laske who would introduce him to the offline Danish Smash scene. He quickly became one of the best players in Denmark and would eventually reach the number 1 spot Danish Power Rankings in January 2018. He ended Smash 4 as #2 on the Danish Power Rankings, with results such as 4th at Valhalla and 17th at BEAST 7.
+HOPE+ started the first month without a set main but ended up settling with Isabelle, however he would constantly use secondaries because of Isabelle's weaknesses. Even with this problem, +HOPE+ found success in the early metagame of Ultimate with good placings such as 13th at Valhalla II and 9th at Phoenix Blue 2, and quickly became the best Isabelle in Europe and a contender for best Isabelle in the world. +HOPE+ would pick up Ken initially as a for-fun character, then later as a co-main after his buffs in patch 3.1.0. With Isabelle, Ken, and a variety of secondaries such as Roy and Inkling, +HOPE+ easily became the one of best players in Denmark, placing 3rd on the first Danish Power Rankings for Ultimate.
After lackluster results at Monday Meltdown, +HOPE+ decided that he had to seek out for a new main, as the evolving meta has worsened Isabelle's flaws. After struggling to find a new main, +HOPE+ would finally find light at the E3 Nintendo Direct June 11th, 2019, where Hero would be announced. +HOPE+ was interested in the character's MP bar and menu list and he decided to stop competing at bigger scale events until the character was released. Upon the character's release, although Hero´s RNG-based moveset sparked a lot of concern in the community, it instead sparked excitement for +HOPE+ who decided to pick the character up. With Hero, he has since seen even more success at tournaments such as 33rd at the national tournament Valhalla III and 13th at the regional tournament Smash Contest: DoKomi 2020 and rose to the number 1 spot on the Danish Power Rankings.
