Nicolas "BarDulL" Bardol is a Melee Marth main from California.
Originally from Culver City, California (Southern California), BarDulL moved up to Northern California to attain his Bachelors degree in Business Administration ((Accounting)) at Sonoma State University. On the side, he tries to attend events in the bay area when he can while also working in San Francisco. He is now pursuing his CPA certification in order to bolster his career as an accountant.
At 12 years old, he attended his first tournament in Fall 2002, defeating would-be notable player Tavo7 (whom eventually joined LiquidKen's crew "SoCal Elite 4") but eventually losing to MattDeezie, the host of the Tournament Go series.
After BarDulL's first tournament, he was heavily off-and-on with his appearances at community events for Melee since he was too young to drive himself. By the time BarDulL got his license at 18 years of age, "Super Smash Bros. Brawl" had already been released.
Upon the release of Super Smash Bros. Brawl, BarDulL decided to make the move to the sequel like many other Melee players at the time. BarDulL made waves early on in "Brawl"'s lifespan, reaching the #1 spot on GameBattles (considered to be the prime online ladder for competitive Brawl during the first year of Brawl's release) using Marth. From the game's release up until EVO 2009, BarDulL was considered to be one of the top Marth players internationally, having placed in the top 16 for both Genesis 1 and Evo 2009. Soon after Evo 2009, BarDulL retired from competitive Brawl. BarDulL played off-and-on in both Melee and Brawl casually until finally beginning to attend tournaments again for Melee in the Fall season of 2013. He is still active in the scene to this day, and is currently the top ranked player in the North Bay Melee community.
In 2015, having never been ranked before, BarDulL qualified to enter the second Northern California Arcadian tournament. There, BarDulL defeated many of NorCal's unranked players to eventually secure the title of "Arcadian Champion."
