Ryan "La Luna" Coker-Welch is a Marth main from New York. He is ranked 53rd in MPGR 2019.

Biography[edit]

He is considered one of the rising stars in New York; he had only started playing around 2011 under DJ Nintendo, but has climbed the ranks quickly. He first became known at Revival of Melee 6, where he defeated players such as DJ Nintendo and Chillindude on his way to 3rd place. He continued this success into 2014, with top 8 finishes at Zenith 2014 and Justice 4 along with top 32 finishes at Apex 2014 and EVO 2014.

Using his white Marth, he has taken sets off of players such as Westballz, SFAT, Lucky, PewPewU, MacD, Duck, Silent Wolf, ChuDat, Hax, Colbol, Fly Amanita, Wobbles and Abate.

He started off 2015 with a victory at Super Nebulous 2, and rode that momentum to a 13th place finish at Apex 2015, taking out players such as Fiction and Silent Wolf before falling to KirbyKaze.

On June 24, 2015, he left Control Gaming where he had been signed since December 2013,[1] and joined CLASH Tournaments the next day.[2] He left CLASH Tournaments on June 13, 2016.[3] On July 23, 2016, La Luna was signed by Kingsmen.[4] On August 25, 2016, La Luna and Kingsmen parted ways.[5] On November 29, 2016, he was signed by Misfits, becoming their first FGC player.[6] He left Misfits on October 31, 2018.[7] He joined Mazer Gaming on February 8, 2019.[8] La Luna parted ways with Mazer Gaming on March 2, 2020.[9]

In July 2020, he was accused of sexually harassing several players and having sex with a minor.[10][11] He issued a statement claiming he is innocent.[12]
