Red Bull Smash Gods and Gatekeepers results ft. Mango, Leffen, Mew2King, Plup

Update: This story has been updated with final results.

This weekend, Red Bull are hosting a pretty big Super Smash Bros. Melee event in Los Angeles, California, and it's got a pretty uncommon format to it.

Red Bull Smash Gods and Gatekeepers features 8 chosen players - C9|Mango, TSM|Leffen, FOX|Mew2King, PG|Plup, CLG|SFAT, Tempo|Axe, Liquid|ChuDat, Frys|Wizzrobe - who each got to pick one "disciple" each to join their team. Listed in the same order as their team captains, they are Tempo|S2J, LG|Ice, P1|Duck, RNG|Swedish Delight, CLG|PewPewU, VGBC|aMSa, G2|Westballz and BAL|DruggedFox.

However, the goal is for each team to consist of 4 players - and that's where the event begins. There will be an open bracket, featuring almost 800 players, and the players who reach top 32 will then be drafted by the team captains into teams which will consist of 4 players each.

The 16 players who will inevitably be left over after this will fight it out in the so-called "Forsaken Bracket" against eachother, which functions as a regular tournament.

Once this is over and done with, the drafted 4-player teams will face off against eachother, with four 1v1 matches where every player on the team needs to participate in one each, followed by a 2v2 teams battle where the members are chosen freely from within the teams.

Although the format is a bit complex, one thing is for certain - there will be a lot of high level Super Smash Bros. Melee this weekend, and you can catch it all at Red Bull eSports.
