Disaster Flare is a smasher from Texas. He had first become interested in playing Smash competitively around SSB4's release, and around that time, he had been both a tournament director and competitive player, hosting tournaments at a local comic book store with the help of fellow smasher Rock12et and his younger brother. Due to a lack of attendees for their tournaments, however, they decided to cease hosting tournaments, and Flare had retired from directing tournaments for some time. Afterward, Flare stopped playing competitively for about a year, and finally started playing competitively again around March of 2017. During April of 2017, Flare spontaneously started hosting tournaments once again, albeit still small-scale.

Trivia[edit]

  • Disaster Flare's alias, "The D", comes from a casual match with his friends, where he accidentally inserted just "D" as his nickname and submitting it as such by mistake. This led to one of his friends constantly calling him "The D". Flare admitted he hated this nickname at first, but it had since grown on him.
