ANTi is a professional smasher from New York.
In Brawl, he mains Meta Knight and is widely considered among the top five Meta Knight mains in the United States, as well as one of the best in the world. He is well-known for using a variety of characters at a professional level such as Snake, Falco, and Marth. He is ranked 11th on the 2014 SSBBRank and was ranked 5th on the Tristate Brawl Power Rankings.
ANTi is one of the best Smash 4 players in the world, as shown by his multiple top 8 placings at national tournaments, such as 1st at CEO 2016, 2nd at The Big House 6, 4th at the The Big House 5 and 7th at Get On My Level 2016 and 2GGT: ZeRo Saga. Although he mainly plays Mario and Cloud, he uses many more characters at top level such as Zero Suit Samus, Diddy Kong, Sheik, and Meta Knight to secure a matchup advantage against his opponents, which has made him known as the "counterpick master" in the Smash 4 community. ANTi is currently ranked 9th on the Panda Global Rankings and 3rd on the New York Smash 4 Power Rankings.
ANTi is the 8th player to take a tournament set off ZeRo in Smash 4, the 4th to eliminate him, and the 2nd to beat him in a best of 5 without losing a single game (after Mew2King).
On September 13th, 2016, ANTi joined the eSports team Immortals as their first Smash player.
ANTi's playstyle usually focuses around exploiting the weaknesses of his opponent in the specific character matchup. In Brawl, he likes to utilize Meta Knight's effective tilt game; he makes special use of the combo forward tilt hit 1 → down tilt → X, where X is either a dash grab, a down smash (usually at lower percentages), Mach Tornado, or a forward aerial. In SSB4, ANTi has great mastery and creativity with Mario's combo game; while his punish game is not as deadly as fellow Mario main Zenyou, he is very well known for his consistency when leading Mario's moves into the other, and his positional pressure using rolls, though he sometimes has more trouble when KOing the opponent unlike fellow Mario main, Ally.
He is reputedly known for having among the best matchup knowledge of all players in Brawl against many characters, such as Olimar and Diddy Kong, to the extent that other top professionals, such as Mew2King and Ally used to study his matches closely to implement his strategies into their own plans during the Brawl days.
