15 year old "Blucas" is an up and coming Smash Ultimate player that is known for his crazy technical skills and is regarded as one of the best Lucas mains in the world. After joining Armada we had a chance to chat and ask a few questions to get to know him better.
Tell us a little bit about yourself and where you are from
I'm middle-eastern, my parents come from Jordan. I currently live in Orland Park, IL.
What got you into playing smash?
My friend mentioned brawl to me, and I had to see it for myself back when I was just about 7 years old.
How did you end up maining Lucas?
A lot of people told me I had his hair, and was pretty shy and timid just like him when I was younger.
What do you think Lucas's biggest weakness is?
Probably his disadvantage. He's super floaty which is a gift and a curse, but it gets hard to get out of disadvantage without having to challenge the opponent. He also has a very mediocre Out-Of-Shield game.
What pro player do you look up to the most?
Definitely Samsora. I look up to his peach and his wonderful personality. I always think how super lively he is and that when he makes a mistake, he laughs it off and he's a very people-person kinda guy. He's the kinda guy I would wanna surround myself with. I want to bring happiness to people the way he does to me. His peach is also fantastic, I don't think I could ever compare a peach to his personally. The way he plays her remind me a lot of PM Lucas, because of how technical she is, as well as how Mobile he plays her.
What was it like playing vs him that first time online?
Heart-stopping, to say the least. At first I didn't want to believe it, but recognized his toadette profile immediately and thought. “Yeah… that's definitely what he would have.” Actually facing him was super intense, and the first thing I wanted to show him was how good Lucas can really be.
What Smash event do you want to attend the most?
Any event that’s super high ranked. I would give the world to meet hundreds of people I’ve only ever seen online. Just the thought of being there in person around people I look up to would be everything.
What heights would you like to take your smash career?
I think I have the potential to be Ranked among the best in the world, Like PGR. My goal is to at least become the best Lucas among any other known.
How did you get into drawing and art?
Well, I started taking it seriously just about 2-3 years ago. I realised it's a passion of mine after drawing for so long. The reason I got into drawing was because just the concept of being able to design anything in my own way was already enough to convince me. I've been drawing overall for nearly 5-6 years.
What tips you would give to new smash players trying to master their character?
Find your motives. The reason I chose to play lucas the way I did was solely off of the inspiration I felt watching others play him. Especially after I found out about PM Lucas, and how he played, My heart told me I would play lucas the same way as much as I can throughout all the smash games. If you can get inspired to play your character, I think it would be a great kick start. The most important thing to do is be patient. Good things will come to those who wait.
