    Armada is the best spokesperson for Melee. He’s professional, humble, thoughtful, and extremely down to earth.

    I just wanna say thank you to ESPN for allowing Smash to be a topic within their community for the past couple years. I remember I use to watch Sportcenter all the time as a child and loved seeing how good the athletes were. When I heard that ESPN was showing interest in this game it made me really excited and I think it's awesome that it's getting the attention it deserves <3

    lol this Jacob guy makes everything seem so somber to me; like he's interviewing someone after something like 9/11 happened lmao

    Leffen winning was definitely amazing and he deserves all the attention he's getting, but let's not forget about Armada's run. He's never been knocked into loser's so early before, and he really ground it out. The man has grit.

    I don't always play games, but when I do I prefer Smash Melee

    the problem with this interviewer is not his demeanor or awkwardness it's that he clearly has preplanned questions and asks them no matter how the interview has been going or what the interviewee has just said, totally disrupts the flow of the convo and sometimes he asks questions that basically have already been answered beforehand because that's what he's prepped

    When Armada is alone, does he think in Swedish or English?

    I love Armada, him being in the scene makes everything much more hype. True and only final boss of this game.

    Some people prefer interviews like this but I find the transition between Armada's answer and the next question very awkward. I think theres a way to be both professional but also a bit more engaging.

    This was a good interview, for me at least. It must be odd being interviewed by someone who is not known inside the melee scene. If I was Adam I would have been super skeptic when asked specific questions about the game, match ups, etc. He did great though. Not only a great melee player but also a great interviewee.
