Maister is a Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Mr. Game & Watch main with a strong Pichu secondary from Mexico, considered the best Mr. Game & Watch player in the world. He has taken sets off of players such as Samsora, Tweek, Zackray, Glutonny, Dabuz, Light, kameme, Shuton, ESAM, and T. Despite residing in Mexico, his frequent travels to the Chicago area resulted in him being awarded the 0 position on the Chicago Ultimate Power Rankings. Maister is widely considered the second-best player in Mexico after MkLeo. He is also widely known to be the player who proved Mr. Game and Watch's viability at a time when most pros were doubtful of the character. He is currently ranked 8th on the Wi-Fi Warrior Rank v5, 1st on the Mexican Power Rankings, and 6th on the Fall 2019 PGRU.

In Smash 4, Maister was also a Mr. Game & Watch main, and was also considered to be the best Mr. Game & Watch player in the world. His breakout tournament was at GENESIS 5 where he placed 13th after beating top players like Pink Fresh, Mistake, and Fatality. He has also taken sets off of players such as Marss, Lima, SDX, ESAM, tyroy, Javi, Chag, and Cloudy. Maister was ranked 8th on the final Mexican Smash 4 Power Rankings and 81st on the Panda Global Rankings 100.

On October 16th, 2018, Maister was signed by Sinai Village and Team Killjoystick. [1] On July 1st, 2019, Maister and Sinai Village parted ways.[2] Maister would be picked up by Anahuac Esports on July 24th, 2019 [3] and later on, Nevermore on September 21st, 2019 [4]. He parted ways with Nevermore on December 10th, 2019.[5] On February 19th, 2020, Maister would be picked up by Spacestation Gaming.[6]

Playstyle[edit]

Maister, unlike most Mr. Game and Watch players, has a very aggressive and fast-paced playstyle, centred around quickly throwing an opponent into disadvantage and sealing out stocks while taking little retaliation in return by smothering all their options. His clever usage of throws and aerials, especially forward Air, which was thought to be one of the worst moves in his kit, along with his proficiency in edgeguarding and very strong combo game, gives him one of the most, if not the most, oppressive neutral and advantage state of any player. His disadvantage state isn't lacking either, commonly living up to 150% or higher as the third lightest character in the game. Notably, he is one of the few players who uses GnW's quick smash attacks to bait and condition the opponent, playing into his overall strength.

Trivia[edit]

  • Despite not being from that region, Maister has won 26 consecutive tournament sets in Chicago. [7]
  • Maister was scheduled to money match Salem at Smash 'N' Splash 5 after a small encounter on Twitter, but Salem never went through with it.
  • When playing in tournaments, Maister can frequently be seen leaning very far into the screen he's playing on. This often results in the player cam only showing the top of his head.
  • When Maister starts to condition his opponent with Mr. Game & Watch's smash attacks or successfully hits a nine with Judge, the community likes to joke that Maister "has entered the Avatar State".
    • This joke originated from a tweet written by Maister himself, where he was comparing himself to Aang, the protagonist of Avatar: The Last Airbender. Like him, Maister has usually a goofy personality but when playing, he becomes very serious and is almost playing unconsciously. When a set is over he is sometimes wondering what happened exactly, like Aang when he is back to his normal state. [8]
    • This running joke has inspired some of Maister's Twitch emotes and other memes.
