After signing top Cloud and DK main Gavin “Tweek” Dempsey for Super Smash Bros. for Wii U earlier this year, Phoenix1 have now thrown their hat into the Melee ring by signing world’s best Samus and MIOM Rank #15, James “Duck” Ma. It seems that birds of a feather flock together, even in esports.

Rated as the best player in Michigan, Duck has been a consistent presence at the top levels of many Melee events, with a second place at Full Bloom 3, seventh at Smash Summit 3, ninth at Shine, Evo, and Canada Cup 2016. With wins over players like CLG|SFAT, IMT|Shroomed, MSF|The Moon, G2|Westballz, and a current 3-1 positive record over TSM|Leffen, he has the potential to raise his MIOM ranking even higher in 2017.

Duck was previously signed to Denial Esports, but agreed to a mutual separation in August after issues with player payments–these issues have since been resolved. The Midwestern bounty hunter will be sporting his brand new orange and black jersey at CEO Dreamland this weekend.
