Red Bull Smash: Gods and Gatekeepers is a tournament that will be held in Los Angeles, California on September 2-3, 2017.

Format[edit]

Open Bracket[edit]

A double elimination bracket will be run until the top 32 players are determined. This bracket is open to the public. Invited players will not participate in this bracket.

The Battle of the Gods and Gatekeepers Crew Battle[edit]

The eight team captains will each select a team of four players consisting of:

  • Themselves
  • One player of their choice who will bypass the Open Bracket
  • Two players who have qualified from the Open Bracket

Each set will consist of five games that will be played on fixed stages:

  • Game 1 - 1v1 on Battlefield
  • Game 2 - 1v1 on Yoshi's Story
  • Game 3 - 1v1 on Dream Land
  • Game 4 - 1v1 on Fountain of Dreams
  • Game 5 - 2v2 on a stage determined through standard stage striking

Each team must decide which player and character to send for each game in advance, and without knowledge of the other team's choices. Each player may only play once per set. However, all players are eligible to play in game 5.

The Forsaken Bracket[edit]

The sixteen players who qualified from the Open Bracket but were not selected for the Crew Battle will compete in a standard Double Elimination tournament.
