ChuDat’s track record from the earliest days of his career in 2003 to the present has been scarily consistent in Melee’s single and doubles tournaments. Most recently, ChuDat placed first in the second edition of the Battle of BC tournament from June 3-4, where he competed with his famous Ice Climbers in the Melee event.

Team Liquid has now expanded its collection of prominent Super Smash Bros figures to three, as ChuDat joins Juan “HungryBox” Debiedma and Kashan “Chillin” Khan under the Team Liquid banner.
