n0ne wins Super Smash Bros. Melee Singles at GOML Online 2020 – Daily Esports
Edgard “n0ne” Sheleby won Super Smash Bros. Melee Singles at GOML Online 2020 on July 19. With 1,367 entrants (not counting DQs), it was the largest online Super Smash Bros. Melee tournament to date.
Despite being the tournament’s fourth seed, n0ne’s run through the early parts of the bracket was hardly free. Before even reaching top 32, he dropped games to Brandon “BZimm” Zimmerly and Jonathan “Plank” Graybeal. Once in top 32, n0ne beat Logan “LSD” Dunn 2-0 and Joseph “Azel” Resplandor 2-1 to advance into top 8.
Interestingly, some of n0ne’s most dominant performances of GOML Online Melee Singles came against his toughest opponents in top 8. He earned 3-0 victories over Zaid “Spark” Ali and Avery “Ginger” Wilson to reach Grand Finals on winners side. He did lose the first set of Grands 1-3 to Cody “iBDW” Schwab. However, n0ne retaliated with a narrow 3-2 victory in set two to win the tournament.
Get On My Line 2020 is an ongoing fundraiser event for a potential in-person GOML 2021. To follow up this Melee event, GOML Online will return with Super Smash Bros. Ultimate next weekend.
