Mileve is an ARMS player from Canada who mains Mechanica. She engaged in a broad range of community contributions including competing at a top-level, streaming, organizing tournaments, and commentating. Mileve is one of the most prominent Mechanica users in the world and North America, as well as one of the most prominent female community members. She was the host of the Scrapstar Tournament Series and is currently sponsored by Illuzion Gaming for ARMS.

Mileve first discovered ARMS through watching the ARMS Direct on May 17th, 2017 which first introduced the ARMS Global Testpunch. She played within these testing periods, at first using motion controls which she found frustrating and later finding out about and using button controls which allowed her to enjoy the game much more. After a montage Mileve uploaded of her experiences with the Testpunch events[1] got fairly popular, she decided to buy the game upon its release. Despite that, she didn't come into contact with the competitive community until a few months later. In early Fall of 2017, Mileve joined the crew "ARMS of the North" (abbreviated as AotN) which featured some of the best competitors in Canada at the time. Starting in late 2017 and extending into a decent portion of 2018, she ran an event series known as The Scrapyard which utilized a variety of unique challenges and rules throughout each event.

In January of 2018, Mileve joined BreakThrough eSports (abbreviated BTe) for ARMS before her trip to EVO Japan 2018. At that event, she managed to place 4th which made her the second highest placing ARMS player from the West. This placement's notoriety did not go unnoticed as Mileve was later offered to be flown out to the Tokaigi ARMS Japan Grand Prix Invitational 2018 that February to which she accepted. She managed to place 3rd in the tournament, tying with Resolve for the highest placement of the four flown out North American players. After this event, Mileve had some interactions with the team Set to Destroy X (abbreviated StDx), though these were short lived and very limited. Later that month, she also traveled to Pennsylvania for Winter Brawl 12. In March of 2018, Mileve and BTe parted ways as the team fully disbanded. Later that month, she traveled to California to play and commentate ARMS at Norcal Regionals 2018, which she managed to place 1st at. Mileve took two more trips in June of 2018, the first being June 1st-3rd to Wisconsin for Smash'N'Splash 4 and the other being June 23rd-24th to California for 2GG: Hyrule Saga. Sometime in mid-2018, Mileve formed the crew Hugs on Impact (abbreviated HOI) which lasted for a short time due to difficulties managing it among her time and energy. She also joined Masked eSports at one point, though that partnership was fairly short lived as well. In October, Mileve joined Flourish Esports as a streamer and ARMS player[2], though the team only lasted for a few months into 2019. Mileve's 2018 in ARMS was wrapped up with Smash Out 2018 in Saint Louis, Missouri where she placed 5th. Including events around her area in Canada, Mileve traveled to ten different offline ARMS events in 2018 with most requiring flights.

On February 9th, 2019, Mileve attended Heart of Battle where she placed 5th. Just two days later, she began running the Scrapstar Series, an weekly ARMS tournament which featured events for North America and Europe. This series would eventually feature numerous special events as well as a shortly lived South American edition. In March of 2019, Mileve started to run the ARMS local Chance of Flurries which had numerous installments throughout the rest of the year. In April, she organized an event open to all around the globe titled Regional Lag Festival due to the expected amount of lag the competitors would face against players on other sides of the planet. The podium placements of this event managed to be one player from the USA, one from Europe, and one from Japan coincidentally furthered the global embodiment of the event. A sequel to this event was held in August of 2019. On May 31st through June 2nd, Mileve attended Smash'N'Splash 5 and placed 9th. At this major, she did commentary work for the ARMS tournament, co-casting alongside Hamma. After a persistent push from Dendy, Mileve was recruited by Illuzion Gaming soon after this event concluded[3]. Later that year during the Fall, she created and organized the ARMS North American Online Power Ranking to showcase a ranking of the best players in North America based on their performance in online events. Her inspiration for this ranking was a similar one that Europe had been doing for some time. The ranking would feature an invitational at the end of each Season with community funded prize pools as well as a stream. Mileve headed the Power Ranking staff until Season 6 in early 2021 when she gave the position to Frosty. Mileve once again attended Smash Out in 2019, managing to take 1st place.

In April of 2020, after numerous ARMS related announcements from Nintendo in March, the ARMS North American Online Open (April 2020) was held which Mileve ran an unofficial community stream for. Throughout this year, she also commentated a variety of events besides her own including Temple Tantrum, Default Derby, and Low Kick Online. In July, Mileve began running the Battle for Stardom series which had events featuring only a single playable fighter. On November 12th, 2020, Mileve announced that she was suspending all of her active ARMS endeavors, including the Scrapstar Series and Battle for Stardom, and taking a step back from the ARMS community to focus more on speedrunning and playing other games. Over her active years in the community, Mileve's consistent support for the game, both online and offline, was evident throughout her career in ARMS and many still consider her among the best streamers and Mechanica players to grace the competitive scene.

Playstyle[edit | edit source]

Mileve often makes use of numerous ARMS including, but not limited to, the Nade, Triblast, Funchuk, Whammer, and Slapamander. These ARM choices still persist even against heavy opponents. She excels at chipping away at opponent's health bars utilizing explosions from Explosion ARMS and flinches from Stun ARMS.
