    Team YP recently announced its acquisition of Griffin "Fatality" Miller, a player considered to be the best Super Smash Bros. for Wii U Captain Falcon specialist in the world.

    Fatality is a professional Smash player from Georgia who has made his way through stacks of tournaments, achieving top 8 positions in many of these. By joining Team YP, he becomes the organization's first Super Smash Bros. for Wii U player.




    Contrary to the jokes about its parent company, Team YP is a legitimate eSports team; however, the organization has been banned from all ESL events, and light restrictions are in place for their players competing in Capcom Pro Tour events. Problems could be had if Fatality ever wants to attend an event sponsored by Nintendo.

    More information on the signing can be found here.

      First Smasher?
      ....first Smash 4 player perhaps? Wasn't Bizzarro Flame already with them?

      Bizzarro Flame was already with them, and even then just because he had retired does not mean that he wasn't the first.

      Yeah this has been fixed. When doing news, it's easy to miss stuff like this.

      edit: Also the naming scheming gets weird for Smash 4 (why couldn't it have just had a simple name), but, we know he wasn't the *first*

      I wouldn't want to be associated with a team like YP

      Yeah, I don't get it either. Who would want to join a team with a name like that? Especially if they've been banned from stuff for their name.

      Bizzaroflame ran into an issue once back a APEX but otherwise he was fine.

      They arent banned from stuff for their name. They're banned because the ESL legally cant allow sponsers from porn/drugs/etc.

      Also who cares? Congrats fatality
