Victra is a Canadian Melee smasher and tournament director from Alberta, Canada. Victra is largely responsible for organizing the competitive Super Smash Bros. community in Edmonton, Alberta. As of the end of 2016, Victra has been largely inactive as a competitive player, but remains active as a community adviser and attends locals from time to time.

He has since started playing Smash 64 as of 2018, and is currently ranked 40th on the 2018 64 League Rankings.

Background[edit]

Victra became aware of the competitive Melee scene in late 2005 after reading a article about the game in issue 195 of Nintendo Power titled "Smash Planet". The article included such topics as SmashBoards, Ken Hoang, MLG, and rumours about a new installment of Super Smash Bros. tentatively titled Super Smash Bros. Brawl. This article also included a brief description of wavedashing and other competitive techniques that had been discovered. Victra began to get involved with the SmashBoards website shortly after and started playing Melee more competitively. After this discovery, he began to teach what he learned to his friends and began building a community in his city in 2006 onwards.

Between 2009 and 2013, Victra shifted his focus towards his University studies. At the end of his senior year in 2013, Victra established a formal Super Smash Brothers student club that laid the foundation for a centralized community for the Alberta Smash scene. Victra continued his role as a community leader, tournament organizer, and top competitor in his region until 2016 when his activity began to decline as he shifted his focus towards his full time work as a civil engineer and his girlfriend. However, Victra remains an active presence online for his community acting as a community adviser for community and event decisions, and continues to attend locals from time to time.
