Red Bull’s “Gods and Gatekeepers” Super Smash Bros. Melee tournament was one of the most unusually-structured events the Smash scene has seen. Put as simply as possible, the event was comprised of three tournaments: A “qualifying” tournament, a crew battle comprised of selected top players from the qualifying tournament, and a “Forsaken” bracket made up of those not picked for the Crew Battle.

Tempo Storm pros Jeffrey “Axe” Williamson and Johnny “S2J” Kim gave their behind-the-scenes thoughts on the structure of the event, reflecting on the nature of performance and entertainment within fighting game tournaments like Gods and Gatekeepers.
