James "Swedish Delight" Liu defeated Adam "Armada" Lindgren 2-1 at the Super Smash Bros. Melee tournament at the 2018 Evolution Championship Series, in what might be one of the largest upsets in the 17-year-old game's competitive history. Armada, a two-time Evo champion from 2015 and 2017, ranked third in the world, according to the 2018 Summer Melee Panda Global Rankings; Swedish Delight, by comparison, was ranked at 16th. Armada will move to the losers bracket of the event before the top eight even begins on Sunday at the Mandalay Bay Events Center.
