Ludwig ‘Ludwig’ Ahgren called out Smash Melee pro Aziz ‘Hax’ Al-Yami for deleting his video about William ‘Leffen’ Hjelte and releasing a new “proper version” with a “higher focus on facts.”
Hax turned the Smash world upside down when he released a 136-page PDF, along with a 2.5 hour YouTube video, explaining how Leffen was creating a “totalitarian regime” within the community.
Now, in the latest development of the saga, Hax decided to delete the video and replace it with a new version that “explains [his] concerns… without suffering from the presentational flaws of last week’s video.”
This video explains my concerns with the status quo of Smash without suffering from the presentational flaws of last week's video. My apologies for those. Please view this video with a fresh pair of eyes.https://t.co/1rLx5bUCAU

In a subsequent comment, he explained that it was the “proper version” of the video and had a “higher focus on facts and allegations” and “less focus on an unnecessary narrative,” such as the allegations that Leffen is creating a totalitarian regime.
Ludwig, who has roots in the Smash melee scene and served as a commentator for years, responded with a tongue-in-cheek call out.
“Saw you deleted the old video,” he said. “Seems you’ve joined the press in rewriting history… shame.”

Hax chose to ignore his comments, maintaining that the video is “super important” and urged people who “had issues with [the] previous [one]” to watch it with a “fresh pair of eyes.”
The old video had over 250,000 views before it was taken down by Hax.
