You either probably know me as that blunt admin who isn't around much anymore that blocked a lot of people and writes big walls of text skirting the line of SW:NPA, or as that guy on Youtube who makes Smash videos of Luigi beating level 9 CPUs by doing nothing among other Smash videos, or maybe as a competitive Smash 4 player that is known as one of the best R.O.B. players on the East Coast who dominates within his region.
Either way, I'm not active here anymore, due to me preferring to spend my time on things like my impending marriage, my competitive Smash career and involvement in my local scene, working with Pastime Legends and on my Youtube channel, and other non-wiki things. Additionally I burnt myself out on wiki stuff with my heavy involvement in the past and I still haven't recovered from it. I still like the wiki though and do genuinely want to see it become the best source of information for the Smash community it can be. Plus I do have some pretty strong nostalgia for this site. So I'm not entirely gone, and will still edit, post occasionally, and do admin stuff if needed, while being an ambassador for the wiki to the greater Smash community. Just don't ever expect me to involve myself in the thick of things and spend hours a day on the wiki again, you can look at me as an overseer of the wiki or as a possible mentor figure.
One thing that hasn't changed from the old days is my willingness to wifi anyone, I still enjoy Smash as much as ever and finding new players, while helping those who want to improve. If I'm not too busy with other things, I'll play you in Smash 4 over wifi if you ask me, just ask me on my talkpage or if you find me on Discord. This only applies for Smash 4 on Wii U however; I have the 3DS version but have no absolutely no desire to play it, and I'm not ever touching Brawl wifi again, so I won't be accepting any requests to play it nor PM/Minus.
I did play Brawl competitively, comaining Wolf and King Dedede,with a Snake that I also used frequently. I believed I did reach the bottom rungs of the professional level, and was good enough to consistently win money at locals in my region, win sets against lesser professional players, and was able to get ranked 5th in my region's last Brawl PR in 2012, within months of my tournament debut. I didn't get much success when I occasionally travelled out of region to the prestigious NY/NJ area, though even with the much stronger competition, I never attended a tournament where I failed to win at least one set. I didn't get to attend much out-of-region tournaments however, as after Apex 2013 my OoR attendance vanished and my overall tournament attendance plummeted, in large part due to my region's Brawl activity falling off a cliff afterward, and my own increasing disillusionment with the competitive Brawl scene. At the end, I only attended nearby local tournaments due to my depleted interest in competitive Brawl, largely in part due to the Brawl's community inability to follow through with a large scale Meta Knight ban, and my inability to burn $50-100 on a single tournament I had no realistic chance of winning money at. And with the completely superior Smash 4 here now, I have absolutely no interest in ever touching Brawl again outside of getting videos for my channel.
In regards to Melee, I don't play it competitively, due to various issues I have with the game, and the fact I find it way too old and late for me to start putting serious effort into it. Nowadays I only play it for single player stuff and to get videos of its dumb AI. I very occasionally enter local Melee tournaments though, depending on my mood. I also play friendlies in it against Melee friends and other Brawl/Smash 4 players. When I do play Melee with others I pretty much go all Ganon. For how well I do, I'll stomp casuals and beat other Brawl/Smash 4 players who don't play Melee, and can defeat low level Melee players, while I get stomped by good Melee players.
With Smash 4, it's definitely my favorite Smash yet, and despite not getting as much practice in it as I should have, I was one of the best players in my revived and stronger region in it (even being ranked 1st and then 2nd in my subregion's first two PRs). However after a Summer of inactivity, my lack of serious training caught up with me, and I was no longer dominant in my region like I once was, resulting in the ending of placing in the money of every singles Smash 4 tournament I entered. It was a wakeup call however and I got more serious about Smash 4, barely missing out on reclaiming the #2 spot on the PR, and finally getting some OoR results that I never got in Brawl. Since then I've only established my dominance in the capital region and added to my OoR results, including making it out of pools at both KTAR XVIII and KTAR XIX, now currently being ranked #2 under Dark Wizzy. I currently main R.O.B., and still play around a lot with Charizard, while I've become a lot more confident in using him as a serious alternative to R.O.B.
I liked Minus, don't like PM, Balanced Brawl was extremely underwhelming, and by the time I started exploring mods Brawl Plus was already antiquated.
In Minus, I comained Wolf and Ganon, while seconding Jigglypuff and Captain Falcon, as well as going a plethora of other characters in friendlies. In PM, I mained Ganon with a Mewtwo I fooled around with, and pretty much just went them. I did enter a couple PM brackets during the lame duck period of Brawl, did decent at one, and did pretty good at the second, while obtaining my PM career highlight of taking a set off Manalord, one of the best Melee and PM players in upstate New York, something some of the PM players in my region still remember even though it's been years now since it happened.
As mentioned in the intro, most people from outside this wiki probably know me because of my Youtube channel, that you can find here. I'm prone to some big schedule slips, but the channel is still alive and I have no intention of abandoning it anytime soon.
