    I'm proud to announce that, following the departure of Justin "Popi" Banusing, I will be taking over as Smashboards' new editor in chief. This is a huge opportunity, but more importantly a huge responsibility, and I'm honored to have been picked for the position.

    For those of you who don't know about me, I'm a Smash Wii U and Rivals of Aether player from New York who's semi-active in the Mid-Hudson scene. I've been following competitive fighting games for about four years and active in the Smash community in some capacity for about two and a half years, though I've been on a hiatus from tournaments for about a year now.

    I haven't been part of the news team for very long, but if you've read any of my writing you'll know I try to look at the big picture and see what we can learn from both our own history and that of other communities, something I'm definitely looking to apply to my work as editor in chief.

    I'd like to thank Popi, Josh "1PC" Olalde, William "wncozens" Cozens, Lucas "Thirdkoopa" Guimaraes and the rest of the Smashboards writing team, as well as Chris "AlphaZealot" Brown, Taylor "Warchamp" Giampaolo, and Amir "Xiivi" Corsaro for this opportunity. I'd also like to give a huge shout out to former Smashboards writer and long time friend of mine Frank "Hangman" DeJohn for introducing me to competitive Smash and the FGC in the first place. This never would've happened without him.

    Going forward, I'm looking to shift gears and try something more in line with other community outlets. Our current esports coverage and editorial content will remain intact, but you can expect more articles highlighting videos, guides, fan art, and other community-oriented content. We're also looking to bring on some new writers, so keep an eye out for more information in the coming days.

Editor-in-chief
Shades is Smashboards' current editor-in-chief. When he isn't studying game development, he's semi-active in the Hudson Valley fighting game scene. From his passion for game design to his involvement in the Smash community, his love of gaming and thirst for knowledge have lead him towards many pursuits in life. You can find him on twitter where he voices his hot takes and quotes dumb things his friends say.
