Legendary Super Smash Bros Melee player Adam “Armada” Lindgren has announced his retirement from Melee singles play.
Armada uploaded a video to his YouTube channel detailing exactly why he would be stepping away from singles competition. He cited a lack of motivation to continue to compete as the main reason for his departure. He stated that he will still enter into doubles play at tournaments as he feels those are “two very different games”.
Armada spoke about wanting a new set of goals to achieve with smash, and hinted at possibly achieving that with the upcoming Super Smash Bros Ultimate.
Armada’s most recent tournament win came at Super Smash Con 2018 last month; Defeating Jason “Mew2King” Zimmerman in set two of grand finals. Being one of the “Five Gods of Melee”, Armada is undoubtedly one of the most decorated players in Melee History. He retires as the “God” with the least amount losses to “non-God” players.
