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, or maybe as that R.O.B. you ran into once on Elite Smash or in an arena that beat you up.
My activity here greatly fluctuates, and I can't promise that I will always be around, but as long as I am around I'll edit as I feel like it and help when needed. 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.
If you ever want to play me in Ultimate, just ask me wherever and I'll tell you when I can play. I do not have any interest in playing any of the other Smash games online however, so do not ask me to play in one of them.
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 after the completely superior Smash 4 came along, I had absolutely no interest in ever touching Brawl again outside of Boss Battles and 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 did very occasionally enter local Melee tournaments though, depending on my mood. I also played 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. By the time of Ultimate's release, I've lost interest in even the occasional dabbling in Melee.
With Smash 4, I liked it quite a bit more than Brawl, 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 region's first two PRs). Then throughout my Smash 4 career my activity would wane at times and I had a couple extended hiatuses that led to a slight downturn in results when I first came back, but I would train up and quickly retake my #2 spot under Dark Wizzy despite my region growing substantially stronger each time, where I consistently hovered around for my entire Smash 4 career. Unlike in Brawl I additionally got solid OoR results during the occasional times I traveled, including making it out of pools at both KTAR XVIII and KTAR XIX, and when I finally entered an S tier tournament I got top 64 at Shine 2017. I ended up retiring from Smash 4 in early 2018 pretty much right after the announcement of the new Smash, while I finished still ranked #2 under Dark Wizzy in the CR during my final active season, while also finishing with significant winning records against every non-Wizzy CR player, though I never did take a set off Wizzy. I mained R.O.B. to the end, and still played around a lot with Charizard, though by the end he fell quite a bit behind my R.O.B. and never quite reached co-main status.
As for Ultimate, it is easily my favorite Smash yet and I've been having a ton of fun playing it. I'm currently still solo-maining R.O.B. as I'm very pleased with his changes and adaption into the new game, and he is my best character by far, while solo Charizard, Ridley, Dedede, and Wolf are other characters I really enjoy playing but have not invested heavily in. The other characters I enjoy playing but have no current plans to ever invest into seriously are K. Rool, Incineroar, Hero, the Belmonts, and Snake. As for my competitive career in it, I have not actually competed in much tournaments, due to various life issues killing my motivation to compete, though I have still been regularly playing the game, and I have done very well in the few tournaments I have entered, including winning most of the locals I entered.
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 solo-mained Ganon. 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. Near the end of Smash 4 I also once entered a local PM weekly and took a set off my region's #1 PM player Sand (though he did end up swiftly destroying me in the Loser Finals runback).
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.

Be warned though that their audio quality isn't that good and in some cases maybe even bad; some of them have been updated however, if I have the song on Game Banana that means I have updated its brstm to better quality.
