    Yoo! I'm Trif, and I'm doing everything I can to be a real professional smasher. Be a melee player in Spain is so difficult, because there is no players and is so hard to get some kind of support. So when I travel I have to do some crazy things in order to don't waste money, like take 30 hours trips (Madrid-Detroit), stay 1 day and half without eating, or sleep in the worst places (In the floor of a random garage in Sweden at 0 degrees, over chairs and under a table at Big House on even on a Phone box). I do everything for playing Smash, so I think Summit is the perfect event to show my real level to all the world and an a big oportunity, so that with all my hours of effort my dream as a pro gamer can be true.

    some interesting facts:

    1. i’ve never campaigned for summit before
    2. i’m good at melee
    3. summit is my girlfriend’s birthday so if i go, i can say i was busy when i forgot her birthday and she’ll buy it
    4. i’m closer to beating hbox than most people in the world
    5. besides the green anaconda, there are three other species of anacondas – the yellow anaconda, the dark-spotted anaconda, and the bolivian anaconda.

    i really want to go to summit and i think id benefit more from going than any current player. my first time travelling was roughly a year ago today and i was able to become top 50 in that time.

    though my last few months have been underwhelming ive been putting in a lot of effort to improve my mindset and learn the most that i can about the game.

    i have not had the same amount of top level practice as most of the other players around my skill level, and it will only become more of a struggle with all of the controversy in my region leading to the top players quitting/being banned. i think i would get really fucking good if i got into summit and i wont waste the opportunity like most ppl seem to do

    Ranked 26 and still climbing. Last summit I gave it my all and barely didn't get in, but i'm not giving up. For Smash Summit 7 campaigning i'm gonna go all out, this tournament is the next step for my improvement. Above all else, I have a ditto to win. All the help from you guys is appreciated beyond belief!

    The OG underdog runner from Smash Summit 1 wants to opt in one last time before med school.

    Also the Mango Champion wants to drink at Homecoming instead of trying to win again

      i'm ORLY, a falcon player from IL. i like falcon punches, playing mafia, and nipple spike combos.

      if i am voted into summit, i promise two things: i will represent all that voted for me by playing to the absolute best of my ability (in both melee and mafia) and i will finally release a combo video by the end of the year.

      Hey. I'm opting into Smash Summit. I've been improving in Melee and I want to get even better. I've been working really hard over these last few months, having beaten a god for the first time and making my first ever top 8 debut at a major. Attending Summit last fall as a coach was one of the greatest experiences I've had, but I feel I have so much more to offer Summit as a player.

      You can be sure I'll be commentating, pushing the Marth meta, reinventing the Mafia meta, and winning every side event with my legendary Donkey Kong. And maybe this time I'll get the jump tech and actually beat Zain. Thanks everyone for the support! :D

      sup, it's slox. these last few years i've foregone attempting my summit run to allow others in my regions to get shoot their shot. during these last few months i've taken a break from social media and traveling too much so that i could work but this is a once in a lifetime opportunity that i don't think i can pass up now. i think i'm more than capable of placing well at the event with some preparation and i already have some dope things planned. hopefully, with your help, you can see me at the summit.

      • Shephard Lima

        I've only been back for a few months and I've won 2 regionals (Northwest, Midwest), 3-0ed Wizzy at TBH 8, and beaten several players in the top 20 and 30 (lucky/westballz/absentpage/kjh and more). Vote for me to see your favorite top players lose to 11th in socal! :)
