LoL-centric Phoenix1 Sign on Tweek for Smash Bros

Phoenix1 have made their first acquisition outside of League of Legends with the signing of Super Smash Bros. for Wii U pro Gavin "Tweek" Dempsey, according to ESPN Esports' Jacob Wolf.

Thank you very much to Phoenix1 for this great opportunity. I am looking forward to being a part of the team, and I plan on representing them well. This is just the beginning.
— Gavin "Tweek" Dempsey

A Cloud main, Tweek came in ninth in Genesis 4's Smash 4 tournament, and 9-13th at both The Big House 6 and 2GGT: ZeRo Saga. The 18-year-old is currently ranked 17th on Panda Global's Smash 4 rankings, though he fell two slots from the previous edition of the list from May.

While Tweek is the organization's first non-LoL player, according to Phoenix1 co-owner Robert Moore, he will not be the last.
