Armada continues win strain during UGC Smash Open
December 6, 2016 - Super Smash Bros
The sorcery of upsets continued during a march of a rather indeterminate UGC Smash Open weekend during a Gateway Convention Center in Collinsville, IL. With a series one position on SSBMRank so heavily contested, any compare between Juan “Hungrybox” Debiedma and Adam “Armada” Lindgren has turn most some-more important. But this time, a grand finals featured Jason “Mew2King” Zimmerman.
In a winners’ bracket, Edgard “n0ne” Sheleby sent Mew2King to losers’ after a tighten five-game set, while Michael “Mike Haze” Pulido sent Joseph “Mango” Marquez to losers’ after a 3-1 victory. The early indeterminate waste meant that Mew2King and Mango would play progressing than normal in a losers’ joint with a crook fixation in thirteenth place. The set went to a tighten diversion five, though Mew2King managed to conflict Mango in several spots to take a set.

For Armada and Hungrybox, it was business as common as they went comparatively protection in their paths to winners’ finals. In winners’ semis, n0ne started a set clever opposite Armada, though Armada meticulously put together a quip to win a initial diversion and, later, a whole set. Hungrybox had small difficulty with William “Leffen” Hjelte as he won in 4 games. It seems like a reoccurring pattern; another tournament, another Armada-Hungrybox finals.
Hungrybox struck early in a winners’ finals set by winning a initial dual games. His turn of play started to demeanour like his Evo 2016 performance, though Armada’s courage let him take a subsequent 3 games to win a set and allege into grand finals.
Meanwhile, Mew2King solemnly built movement in Top 8, defeating James “Duck” Ma, Mango, Mustafa “Ice” Akcakaya, Zachary “SFAT” Cordoni, n0ne, and Leffen to allege into losers’ finals.
The thorn in Mew2king’s side, Hungrybox, was a subsequent roadblock. The set count has been heavily in Hungrybox’s preference in 2016, though Mew2King showed intelligent adaptations this time. Instead of a common laser-camping style, Mew2King played most some-more aggressively and invaded Hungrybox’s space though creation too many mistakes. The vital adjustments worked out for Mew2King, as he astounded everybody with a win and sheet to a grand finals opposite Armada.
By far, this has been one of a longest losers’ joint runs of Mew2King’s career, though could he take dual uninterrupted sets over Armada?
The contingency did not seem to be in Mew2King’s favor. In 2016, his set record opposite Armada was an deplorable 1-7, though that didn’t seem to matter to him during UGC. He played a initial set masterfully, determining a gait of a diversion as he pressured Armada into creation tough preference after tough decision. Mew2King managed to reset a joint after winning a initial set in 4 games, and a movement seemed to be on his side.
However, violence Armada in dual uninterrupted sets is no easy charge and Armada began to strike his walk in a second set. The easy kill setups that Mew2King found in Set 1 were nowhere to be found in a second. Armada won Game 1 decisively on Battlefield, and Mew2King looked to even things adult on Final Destination. In a nail-biting Game 2, Armada found a murdering blow before Mew2King, to take a 2-0 lead.
With his behind opposite a wall, Mew2king gained some movement by winning Game 3 on a runback on Final Destination, though Armada now had entrance to dual clever counter-pick stages for a residue of a set. On Dreamland, Mew2King put together an considerable arrangement of dash-dancing and mixups, though Armada’s clever defensive use of turnips and counter-attacks were too most as he clinched a set 3-1 to win UGC.
Despite finishing in second, Mew2King gives his fans something to hearten about as he demonstrated that he can win opposite anyone in a world. At UGC, he put together an considerable run, and degraded 4 members of a large 6 in a process. Armada, on a other hand, hermetic his second uninterrupted pretension as best actor of a year over Hungrybox on a annual rankings.
