Super Smash Brothers: Melee pro Adam “Armada” Lindgren has stepped down from his position as a panelist for the game’s rules committee to open it up for more female representation. The committee, spearheaded by the community platform Melee It On Me, aims to standardize all Melee tournament guidelines.
Some of the world’s best Smash Bros. players say they are owed thousands of dollars for their performances in a tournament called BEAST 7 held in Sweden last February.
Super Smash Bros. Melee may be sixteen years old, but frame data analysts are still tearing the game apart to find new techniques to use in competition.
Adam “Armada” Lindgren, considered one of the “five gods” of competitive Super Smash Bros. Melee, has dropped out of this weekend’s DreamHack Austin due to a controller that isn’t malfunctioning properly. Yes, you read that correctly.
“It was the first time I had ever controlled anything on a video screen,” Ernest Cline, the author of Ready Player One—and a new book, Armada—says of playing Space Invaders as a child in 1977. “I was suddenly drunk with power.”
