Smasher:Chillin

Jump to: navigation, search

Chillin (formerly known as chillindude829) is an American professional smasher. He is well known for being the first notable Fox player in competitive Melee, popularizing the use of several Fox techniques that are commonly used by professionals today. He was a prominent member of H2YL when the crew was active, and has written a notable amount about his past history and the origins of Melee in his blog, "History of a Smasher", on SmashBoards. Chillin is currently ranked 36th on the 2016 SSBMRank and 3rd on the MD/VA Melee Power Rankings. He was also formerly ranked 6th on the MD/VA Project M Power Rankings and 8th on the discontinued Smash Panel Power Rankings.

Tournament history[edit]

Melee[edit]

Chillin has been a contender in Melee tournaments since 2002, and was the first ever player to take a set off of Ken in a singles tournament (at Game Over in early 2004). He was known for creating several Fox combos during his early career, such as using three falling up airs in a row, and waveshining across the stage along with a shine spike. During the 2003-2007 era of Melee, Chillin was a common participant in nationals, such as MLG events, being able to frequently place within the top 8 of them. In doubles, he often teamed with Azen, being the first team to defeat the team of Ken and Isai in grand finals of a tournament (at MLG Chicago 2006).

During the 2008-2010 era, after Melee presence began dying out due to Brawl tournaments beginning to appear, Chillin continued to play Melee, but not at the same level that he used to.

In 2011, Chillin accompanied his long time friend and doubles partner Azen in Azen's first tournament appearance in almost four years, at Pound V in February 2011, where they placed 9th in doubles. He and Azen then started a new YouTube series, "Fight Nights with Azen and Chillin," in which they would talk about fighting games and aim to share strategies and help others improve.

Chillin remains a top Fox player, and is still able to place highly at various nationals. On April 11th, 2014, Chillin was picked up by Team Curse prior to their merge with Team Liquid, being the first player to be selected for their Melee team. At EVO 2014, he managed to defeat Colbol 2-1 and Westballz 2-0 in the losers' quarters pool before losing to Fly Amanita 0-2, placing 9th overall in Melee singles.

At Apex 2015, Chillin challenged Leffen to a first-to-five Fox ditto during the Salty Suite for the right to use Fox's default color palette in Smash tournaments. He lost to Leffen 0-5.

Other Smash games[edit]

Chillin briefly played Brawl shortly after its release, and placed 3rd at Critical Hit 3, though has since quit, viewing Brawl as a non-competitively viable fighting game due to its removal of techniques and overly defensive gameplay, which, in his opinion, took away from the depth of the game.

Chillin is also a professional Wolf player in the Brawl mod Project M. He commonly competes in Project M locals in the MD/VA area, though he has not made many impacts in singles events at national tournaments. He usually teams with ChuDat at nationals; the two have achieved decent results in doubles events.

He also occasionally entered SSB4 in regional tournaments, mainly using Mega Man.

Trivia[edit]

  • At Apex 2015's Salty Suite exhibition, Chillin lost a money match to Leffen in Fox dittos; after losing all five games of the set, Chillin lost both $100 USD and the "rights" to use Fox's default costume. Since Chillin was unable to use Fox's default costume, he switched to using Fox's blue costume. In October 2016, Leffen allowed him to use the default costume again.
  • Chillin is well-known for saying the phrase "My B" after his Salty Suite match with Leffen.
  • Chillin's expression during the Apex 2015 money match with Leffen has become a meme, with many jokes that he died.
