Smash Melee player makes it into the eSports Hall of Fame
Adam Lindgren is going to be inducted into the selective group
The Esports Hall of Fame (EHOF) announced yesterday that it has a new gamer waiting to be inducted. Adam “Armada” Lindgren, a Swedish Super Smash Bros Melee player, was chosen for the EHoF after receiving the majority of votes from the eSports community, and will be inducted during a ceremony held when the ESL One gets underway in Hamburg, Germany later this month.
Lindgren has racked up a number of first-place finishes in events such as Smash Summit, Genesis and Evo and has been dubbed one of the “Five Gods” of Smash Melee. He reportedly secured 69.26% of the votes, according to the EHOF, and has earned over $311,000 during his career. That figure is second only to the all-time leader, Hungrybox.
The Smash Melee pro has earned two Evo championships, in 2015 and 2017, three Genesis championships – Genesis 2, 3 and 4 – and two Smash Summit championships from the second and third seasons. He is also the winner of several other major events, including Smash N Splash 4, CEO 2014 and Super Smash Con 2018.
Lindgren “retired” twice from eSports, once in 2013 and again in 2018. However, his love for the game, and his ability to stand out above everyone else, kept him coming back. His induction ceremony will be held during the Dota 2 event at ESL One, which will take place October 25-27. He will join several other high-profile gamers already inducted, including renowned Swedish Counter-Strike veteran Emil “HeatoN” Christensen and the ‘Fifth Race’ Warcraft legend Jang “Moon” Jae Ho.
