  • EVO 2016: Smash Bros. Melee & Super Smash Bros. Wii U

    It's been a long, wild ride for Hungrybox but at EVO 2016 he finally managed to take a victory after defeating Armada in the grand finals for Super Smash Bros. Melee. Hungrybox has managed to come out with top three victories in previous years at EVO but this time he made it to the top. Armada is arguably the best out there in the world of SSBM and his history with Peach and Fox has put him ranked at the very top for a long time.

    However, after Hungrybox's latest win against Armada, his win at Dreamhack Winter and his second place performance in Dreamhack Austin, it's safe to say that he is hot on the tail of Armada. Hungrybox mains Jigglypuff and he managed to use his expertise to take down Armada, who was playing Fox during the grand finals.

    Mang0, who managed to take the win at Dreamhack Austin, didn't do as well this month at EVO 2016, but he still managed to get a top five ranking, along with Plup, S2J and Mew2King. Westballz and PewPewU tied for seventh spot, whilst Duck, Swedish Delight, Zhu and Shroomed all tied for ninth place.

    In the world of Super Smash Bros. Wii U, Ally took the win for his great performance with Mario, whilst in second place, the loser of the grand final match was Kamemushi. Kamemushi played Megaman and Yoshi during the grand fina and Ally finished the game pretty quickly.

    In match 1 Kamemushi opted for Yoshi but after a quick match loss he shied away from that character and stuck with Megaman for the remainder of the grand final. It didn't serve him well for the second match, which Kamemushi couldn't manage to take for himself, but after this Ally lost out in the third match. However, Ally quickly came back in match four with a vengeance and swiftly ended the final with a 3-1 score line.

  • SSBM Lucky Gets Picked up by Selfless

    If you're a fan of the Super Smash Melee Bros scene then you'll be interested to hear that Joey "Lucky" Aldama has been picked up by the growing North American organization Selfless.

    Selfless has only been around since February 2016 and it started with a group of ex-Enemy players that sought to create their own org. The Selfless org has since signed a competitive Counter Strike: Global Offensive team that has been making great strides in the scene.

    Lucky may be best known as Cloud 9 Mango's double partner back in '07. However, Lucky has been playing Smash Bros ever since and he's been making a bit of a name for himself as a solo player too. Lucky's most recent good performance was his fifth place spot at Dreamhack Austin.

    Despite Mango's signing with Cloud 9 in 2014, Lucky has been without an organization ever since. Lucky certainly seems quite happy to see his new partnership with Selfless flourish and he'll now be wearing their logo at any Smash events.

    "I'm extremely excited to have the opportunity to play for a brand like Selfless," Lucky said in a statement. "Since our first talk, I've enjoyed the way the org operates and handles itself and can't wait to proudly represent them in future Smash competitions."

    There's no doubt that Lucky is among the top twenty Smash players in the world.
