Europe: A Contintent Of Threats At Genesis 3


With so many other countries like Mexico, Latin America, Canada, Australia, and Japan attending Genesis 3 with some of their finest players, it can come as no surprise that Europe is doing so as well. Spanning across many countries and regions they bring a special depth to Genesis 3 no other region can and some serious talent to boot. Meet the threats from Europe at Genesis 3!


Melee

It comes as a surprise to no one that Europe has produced some of the greatest Smash players of all time. While unfortunately Leffen will be unable to attend due to issues with his visa, Armada will be coming back to Genesis series like so many years ago hoping once again to take home the crown. However this famous Peach player isn't the only big name coming for Melee that Europe has to offer, here are some of the rest!

Is Ice really the 2rd ranked in Europe? I was hoping Leffen was also considered better than him :\ Otherwise, solid read, this will be hype no matter what. Go Rondoudou!

Couple of things I noticed:

1) Ice is definitely 3rd in Europe after Armada and Leffen. Unless you mean "2nd best from Europe attending G3" in which case yeah Ice is 2nd.

2) Cong is actually set to play Smash 4 not Melee

At last we are going to see izaw in action... Hope he makes good reping in G3.

Just without this, the European Smash scene is too good. Overtriforce and Ice are amazing players, with the latter destroying Leffen at a national. It's kind of awesome: Armada and Leffen are one of the Gods(or one of the God slayers, in Leffen's case) with the latter being the second best right after the GOAT. The title shouldn't be "Continent of threats", because Europe isn't a threat. It's a rival.
