Yei is a Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Meta Knight player from Costa Rica with a variety of secondaries. He has defeated players such as Maister, Mr E, Meme, Joker, Chag, Wonf, and Nanon. He is currently ranked 2nd on Costa Rican Power Rankings and is considered the best player in Central America.

In Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, Yei was known to have mastery over multiple characters, but mainly plays Lucina and Marth. His breakout tournament was at Smash Factor 7, where he defeated Rox and Cloudy before losing to ANTi in a close game 5 set, placing 9th.

Playstyle[edit]

Yei is a versatile player, able to switch playstyles quickly when necessary. His most consistent approach, however, is to maintain an aggrresive, yet calculated and patient neutral game. From his aggression, he will go for deep edgeguards, juggles, and early kills.

For Chrom, he emphasizes on strong spacing and ledgetrapping. For Meta Knight, he plays for combos, spacing, and quick edgeguarding, while also using Meta Knight’s jumps to make his landings difficult to punish.
