Announced in the form of a music video on June 15, Team Liquid has signed Daniel “ChuDat” Rodriguez, a longtime and notable veteran of the competitive Super Smash Bros. Melee scene. With his new sponsorship ChuDat will join the likes of Hungrybox, Chillin, and Ken—all three of which were also featured in the acclaimed Melee documentary The Smash Brothers.
At the time of writing, ChuDat is currently sitting at 14th on the Smashboards. A fundamentally sound Ice Climbers main, ChuDat’s recent form has been more than impressive as he has been taking it to the wire against some of the biggest names in the game. When ChuDat took down MaNg0 at this year’s Smash Summit, many fans wrote off the performance as fluke and a one off. But after a repeat performance just one month later at Smash Rivalries, followed by a grand finals clash at Dreamhack Austin with his now-teammate Hungrybox, ChuDat has solidified himself once again as a name to be reckoned with.
