Christopher "Azen" McMullen is a Melee Marth player from Virginia who was considered one of the best players of the MLG era.

Biography[edit]

Azen was considered the 2nd best Marth of the MLG era next to Ken, which played into the West Coast vs East Coast rivalry that dominated the scene at the time.

In 2006, Azen was one of several smash players who were sponsored by Carbon, an esports organization that originally focused on Halo.[1][2] It is not known when this sponsorship lapsed, as MLG slowly phased Smash out of its Pro Circuit in 2007. Wife has also asserted that Smash players ultimately benefited very little from the sponsorship.[3]

Nowadays, he occasionally shows up to the weekly Smash @ Xanadu events hosted by VGBootCamp, and is a frequent guest on longtime friend and crew member Chillindude's stream. On May 27, 2015, Azen announced that he would making a full comeback to the Smash community, and that he would be attending EVO 2015 and CEO 2015.[4]

In his first out of state tournament in years, Azen finished 65th at CEO 2015, finishing 5th in his pool. At EVO, he fared much better, defeating Fly Amanita in his 2nd round pool before losing to Silent Wolf 2-0, then being knocked out by Reno, finishing 33rd out of 1869 players.
