LOSER is an ARMS player and tournament organizer from Ohio who mains Helix. He is often known for his pairing with Frosty in terms of organizing and running The Biweekly Procrastination as well as the offline event series including Pressure and Pressure 2. LOSER has been ranked on each of the Ohio ARMS Power Rankings for all of their Seasons so far with varying placement and has also been a member of the Ohio Power Ranking staff since its creation.

LOSER first discovered ARMS during its initial announcement in a Nintendo Switch Presentation on January 12th, 2017 and immediately knew that he would be interested in the game. After seeing Helix in a video Nintendo posted to their YouTube channel on April 28th, he also knew that he would be interested in maining him. After a history in playing Super Smash Bros. for Wii U competitively, LOSER wanted to play ARMS competitively and establish a scene in Ohio. On June 21st, 2017, he decided to contact a prominent Ohio tournament organizer and now former ARMS player Azilidaz to create this community, what LOSER envisioned as the NEO ARMS League. Unfortunately for LOSER, this contact was made too late and T.O.JOE had already created Ohio ARMS by that time. He quickly joined the Ohio ARMS community and engaged often with those established there. LOSER continued to support the ARMS scene in Ohio by attending every event in the A Call to ARMS series as well as entering numerous online 2GG ARMS events in early Fall of 2017. Due to a lack of a proper electronic device at the time, LOSER utilized the Wii U's internet browser to communicate during each 2GGP event he entered. Around that time, on August 20th, LOSER also began running the Ohio ARMS Online Biweekly alongside Frosty. This event was created after Azilidaz inquired for someone interested in running an online event as the A Call to ARMS series would be ending soon. LOSER was tasked with creating the event's rule set, taking inspiration from other ARMS locals' rules while still specifying formalities exclusive to his event. Many debates were held within Ohio ARMS' staff on which stages to make legal and the stage list changed many times throughout the tournament's run as well. On October 7th 2017, LOSER attended NyanCon, a local convention that was also running an ARMS tournament. LOSER managed to take 2nd place in the bracket behind Aiakos, one of LOSER's bracket demons at the time. At this convention, he cosplayed a Helix Fan and even had a bottle of Helix Juice. Following that event, the Ohio ARMS' first Power Ranking Season came to a close and LOSER worked alongside Frosty to create their first Power Ranking image. Around this time, LOSER also created a special rule set known as the ARMS Constitution. This set of rules was made to showcase how tournament rules evolved over time as well as the changes that have occurred in game. The ARMS Constitution was never fully utilized though due to its rather hyperbolic nature and difficulty in reading due to the current rules being featured at the bottom of the document instead of the top.

LOSER continued to run and enter each Ohio ARMS Online Biweekly, which became The Biweekly Procrastination in January of 2018. In March of 2018, LOSER managed to get his most prolific tournament win: a set against PineappleFreak in The Biweekly Procrastination 14. Prior to this win, PineappleFreak had an undefeated streak against Ohio players and to this day this is the only set an Ohio player has taken off him. Sometime that Spring, LOSER began to brainstorm ideas for an new event, one that would become his first endeavor in running an offline tournament. On April 21st, 2018, he made the initial announcement for Pressure which would feature Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, ARMS, Sonic the Fighters, and a Mario Tennis Aces side event. The event would be co-ran by his brother, Frosty, although LOSER was in the position of head tournament organizer. During the few months prior to the event, LOSER created many flyers and advertisements to garner interest and distributed them at many local events including an E3 watch party in early June. Once Pressure occurred on June 28th, it was considered a success by the organizing team as not only did the event see almost every active Ohio player participate, but it also saw many players attend from other states in the Midwest. Throughout the rest of 2018, LOSER worked on more Power Ranking art for Ohio ARMS and continued to enter all of the Biweekly Procrastination events. He also entered the ARMS tournament at NyanCon in October, once again placing 2nd, but this time to PineappleFreak.

In early 2019, LOSER began entering an event seemingly tailored to him, and a few other players, specifically; Default Derby. This event restricted player's ARM choice to their character's Default loadout, something that LOSER had been keeping to since the game released. Despite not necessarily placing high in these tournaments, LOSER continued to support them by entering all of them that he could possibly enter. Throughout the Spring of 2019, LOSER began making plans for a sequel to Pressure and eventually announced them as Pressure 2 Krusty Crew Battles on May 29th, right before many Ohio players left for Smash'N'Splash 5. This event was planned to feature an Ohio vs Saint Louis crew battle as well as having a regular ARMS bracket and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate bracket. On July 20th, 2019, the event took place and managed to garner numerous out of state competitors including Asqew, Steelhead, N-Man, and other outsiders. Pressure 2 was also the first event where all of the Ohio Power Ranking staff were in attendance. Despite the respectable amount of entrants, the crew battle between the two prominent regions never took place due to player fatigue.

LOSER and Frosty maintained running Biweekly Procrastination events into 2020 and began to see an increase in entrant numbers. Eventually, the event began to see consistent double digit entrants which was something never before seen during any other portion of the event's lifetime. These entrants could be attributed to the announcement of an ARMS character coming to Smash Bros. as well as the NA Online Open scheduled to occur in April 2020. To account for not being able to enter the Open, LOSER entered Quarantined Rapport instead and managed to place 33rd. Going into that Summer, LOSER wanted to give back to the community in a way that seemed like a quality-of-life update; creating the all of the fighter's alternate color renders. This task was split between himself and Frosty and began on May 2nd, 2020. After an excessive amount of tedious work, with the most notable being Mechanica's camouflage color which took four days of work to complete, the project was finished and shown to the public on June 7th. Later that Summer, in early July, LOSER noticed the Steel Trap's lack of a proper logo so he got to work on creating one. After a short period of time, LOSER managed to create a logo incorporating an animal trap and Max Brass' logo as to represent the event and Steelhead, who mains Max Brass. Both of these art endeavors were met with high praise from community members with the render project even becoming Ohio ARMS' most liked Tweet within a matter of days. In early August 2020, LOSER and Frosty TO'd Champions of the Era's 64th event- which was the first event that they ran, but did not create. Later in August, LOSER got the opportunity to enter the ARMS North American Open on August 8th to which he out placed his brother's placement in the April event. In early 2021, LOSER was formally accepted onto the Network Era tournament team to assist with running Era's many tournament series when the situation required it. Later on May 13th, LOSER and Frosty were transferred ownership of Default Derby from Era due to their continued support of the series and the Network Era community as well as their experience as tournament organizers.

Pressure 3 was never officially announced, but it was expected to occur in the Summer of 2020. Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, the event could never have been held within this time slot and will now likely occur in 2021 if the pandemic is over by that time. The team behind the event plans on having the event be larger than past events with even more out of state competitors travelling to the event. Throughout all of LOSER's ARMS career, he has always been willing to give back to the community, whether it's through creating events and art or playing in tournaments. While his name is mostly accurate to his tournament performances, his dedication to the game of ARMS is clearly unwavering even years after the game's release.

Playstyle[edit | edit source]

Ever since ARMS' first Testpunches, LOSER has chosen to only use double Blorbs on Helix. This choice was solidified for the full game's release after he found enjoyment and success from the loadout during his experience in those events. LOSER typically opts to keep his three ARM loadout as Helix's Default ARMS, the Blorb, Ice Dragon, and Guardian, but in special circumstances he chooses to make all three a Blorb to prevent his Joy-Cons from drifting to the wrong ARMS.

LOSER makes heavy use of the wide grabs made easily possible due to his use of the Thumbs-Up Grip which is even more daunting with the bounciness of the Blorbs. LOSER tends not to overuse Helix's Tower Mode either, relying more on jumps and his Puddle mode. This style of play lead him to use a more aggressive playstyle, often being relentless in his effort to blind his opponent. LOSER is also proficient in landing Blorb Rushes, oftentimes landing the maximum possible 490 total damage.
