Madlobster has been attending tournaments since 2005, being dragged into the scene after befriending Norwegian smasher Flikkflakk, Flikkflakk quickly teaching him the first of the advanced techniques of the game. His first big tournament was in 2006, particularly Smasher's Reunion hosted by Tonberry, where his crew was up against Flikkflakk's crew Fight For Fun. Flikkflakk was to on a tear and eliminate 16 stocks taking out all the 4 other players of Madlobster's crew before he himself went out to face him. In a stunning comeback, Madlobster was able to hit with a Rest (as he played Jigglypuff at this point in time) to finish off Flikkflakk's final stock.
Madlobster quickly became a core part of the Melee community by attending all the premier tournaments at the time, which included Smashers Reunion 2, Smashers Reunion 3 and traveling abroad to tournaments like The Renaissance of Smash 4. He also hosted a tournament series called Manly Lobster Tournament which was hosted at his own house, only able to keep about 20 players per tournament. Still, top players such as Masamune, Armada and Tonberry attended multiple of these tournaments.
