In Fighting News (42:37): APEX 2015 has finished and man was it intense. Alliance’s Armada faced off against EG’s PPMD in the Melee tournament.

It went to the final game 2-2 with PPMD playing Marth against Armada’s Fox. In the end PPMD managed to prevail, netting him the $7,228 prize. While not as much coverage was given to doubles matches, we will note that Mew2King and HungryBox won the doubles tournament over Armada and Android.
