Who writes for us?


President & Author

FriendlyFireOn is a Super Smash Brothers Melee Falco player and human from Cincinnati, Ohio. After countless hours of backbreaking labor and millions of dollars, he developed a website to bring true and accurate news to the oft-misled Super Smash Bros. community. In his free time, he enjoys working a real job and trying to succeed in his future endeavors.


Brigham Pratt

Managing Editor & Author

Brigham Pratt was discovered by FriendlyFireOn in Aspen, Colorado at the ripe age of 3 months old. Brigham had been created by scientists from Aspen to be an efficient machine with one purpose: to write the truth. Pratt’s one true directive is to let the people of smash know what has happened, when it has happened, why it has happened, and whether or not UCF is on.

Peter Casciato


We hired Peter to figure out who was viewing nsfw content on the turnip Reddit account. He just kinda stuck around and we can’t figure out how to get rid of him. Peter has never won a game of smash in his life. A bitter husk of a person, he spends his time raging against the game that broke him. Sometimes it’s funny.

Will “Nasty_fingerz” Deville


“Nasty_fingerz” is a Wii Fit main who went once went 2-2 at a weekly in his local scene. He’s studying English at UNC and really, really doesn’t want future employers to know that he writes here.
