My name is Joey Aldama and I am a professional Super Smash Bros. Melee player. I play primarily under the gamertag “Lucky” but I also answer to “The Batman.” After playing Melee casually for some time I decided, in early 2007, to compete in tournaments and by 2011 I considered myself one of the top 5 players from the West Coast. In 2015 I was ranked #12 in the world on MIOM’s SSBM power rankings and dropped to #19 in 2016 while I was redesigning how I play the game. Using my new style I hope to solidify myself as a top 10 player in the world and as a threat that can win any event no matter who my competition is. Outside of melee I enjoy superheroes, anime, craft beers and hanging out with my girlfriend Cathy, “gummy0ctopus” who also streams. As a kid I grew up watching superhero cartoons like Batman, Spiderman and Ninja turtles all the time so I naturally ended up loving them. My love for cartoons made anime a logical progression, starting with Fullmetal Alchemist and Trigun. Craft beers are kinda personal for me because of the way I got into them. When I was 9 my older brother passed away and when I got older a cousin I never got to know when growing up, who was close to my brother, offered to show me what real beer was while hanging out. While we got to know each other he told me old stories about my brother and that was really special for me so now it will always remind me of my cousin, who reminds me of my brother. Thanks to my success in melee and streaming, I am able to do both as a fulltime job and I am extremely thankful to all my supporters. I spend a lot of my time on stream trying to improve at melee so expect to see tech skill practice and match analysis but I also play 1v1’s online with my subs and sometimes non-subs. Feel free to ask me questions about melee at anytime even if I’m not playing melee!
If you love the stream or just want to support my melee career, subscribers are the ones that keep the dream going. **Perks** -Subs are immune to slow mode and ads Access to the sub Discord aka the “Batcave” -Higher priority in queue for netplay -Access to awesome emotes -Notification and shoutout -Subs can request songs on “Weeb Wednesday”
F.A.Q Q: Who are you playing? A: Type “!ports” and xanbot will tell you Q: Is there a netplay queue and how do I join? A: Type “!queue” and xanbot will tell you how long the line is and if you want to join just ask a mod to add you. (If a top player asks if Joey wants to play the queue might end prematurely) Q: Do you netplay with people who aren’t subs? A: It depends on how I’m feeling, but yes I do sometimes Q: Do you play any other fighting games? A: I love fighting games and enjoy anything that I can play with a fightstick Q: How do I join the discord? A: The discord is for subscribers only, but if you’re subbed just go to your settings on discord and select the “connections” tab then sync up your twitch account to your discord and you will automatically be offered to join the “batcave” (unfortunately you can’t join while on mobile for the moment) Q: Favorite anime? A: Berserk, FMA, and Clannad Q: Favorite beer? A: Avery Uncle Jacob's Stout Q: What does “DKMI” stand for? A: It stands for “Deikumi” one of my subscribers and my biggest donor, who I like to refer to as my unofficial sponsor.
