    Though it might be hard to believe, even top players like Super Smash Bros. Melee god Adam “Armada” Lindgren started off knowing next to nothing about the game. But thanks to his passion and dedication, Armada has been able to grapple to the top of the Melee totem pole after years of continuous practice — not an easy feat by any means, and one that requires a true love for the game. Throughout the years, Armada has undoubtedly had his lows and questioned his capabilities, perhaps even debating giving up his dream to be the best. Nonetheless, other players have encouraged him to continue striving for greatness.

    So where does our hero get his inspiration? Armada acknowledges players from around the world who are not exclusively members of the Melee community. His reasons range from their pure devotion to the game despite seemingly unwavering adversity, to their technical creativity and ingenuity. To find out who’s motivated Armada throughout his career, watch the video below:

Based in the Southeastern United States, EmaLeigh has been playing Smash since its inception but joined the competitive scene about two years ago. She dual mains Pikachu/Fox in both 64 and Melee and Pikachu/Charizard in PM. Identifies as "scrub." Her goal is to nurture Smash’s growing scene, git gud, and have fun. Check her out on Twitter @emaleigh_o (but only if you want to).

      My 3 have to be,
      Isai, because he was the underdog in most tournaments, and only won when he was having fun or had someone to fight for.
      Amsa, for his amazing use of Yoshi and pushing his character up the tier list single handed.
      and Abate for his use of Luigi and his fluid movements and control of his character. I strive to be more like all 3 of these smashers.

      My top 3?
      Mang0
      Tsu
      Salem

      I've always been a die-hard C9 fan, from LoL to CS:GO, then on to Smash Melee with Mang0
      Tsu is my role model in terms of a Lucario main, and his preformance and Frostbite 2017 set me on my path into competitive LoL
      Salem is by far one of the best up and comers and his use of Bayo in the competitive scene and his near-victory against ZeRo at the BIG10 gave me more love for the game.

      I was more of smash 4 than melee or brawl.

      Just as gospel and church music heavily inspired me since 1965, any Smasher who mains the same characters as me give me the motivation to practice on the regular with them. That said, I'm staying away from competitive play. I want to learn as much as I can so that I can sequester myself from the casual players. Anyways, my top 3 for each of my mains are as follows:
      • :rosalina: - Xaltis, Yuzu, Kirihara
      • :4peach: - Samsora, Umeki, Kie
      • :4bayonetta2: - ikep, Chavo, Lima, Calculus (okay, I chose these guys since they prefer Bayo 1 over Bayo 2 but nevertheless they're my inspiration)
