Revival of Melee 7 was one of the largest tournaments since Apex 2014 and featured 3 of the top Super Smash Brothers Melee players in the world. The stories of the tournament ended up being two unlikely mid-tier mains making it deep into the bracket - Darrell who placed 4th with Samus and Abate, with Luigi, who placed 9th after losing a heartbreaker to DJ Nintendo. The top 3 were familiar faces with Mango, Mew2king, and Hungrybox. Most interesting was a stock during the finals where Mew2King intentionally suicided after Mango slipped and phantasm'd himself to a suicide. The stream was produced by VGBootcamp and peaked at over 20,000 concurrent viewers on sunday - making it one of the most viewed Smash Brothers tournaments of all time.

Abate getting 9th doesn't surprise me... I actually would have guessed he'd get 7th or 9th. Darrel was quite the story and incredibly impressive. I think however, the true story and legend of this tournament was the incredibly bad seeding.

I didn't get to watch the stream but what on earth is this seeding and who did it so I can strangle them?

Was Mango vs Hungrybox a Bo5?!?

It was a Bo5, yes. Because of wacky seeding, they made a special exception. Not that it mattered. Mango 3-0'd Hbox
Quite frankly that's disgusting.

My jaw literally dropped when I saw that bracket and then saw Mango vs Hungrybox as a Bo5. Special exception or not that should not be happening.

Wow. I feel like I'm being trolled so hard and this is all one terrible nightmare where such terrible seeding and terrible pic of the days exist. Maybe I'll wake up soon.

... Terrible.

I called out the bracket on stream and twitter before they started 1st round---- The bracket was still being made >_>... I went ignored and it wasn't until mid tournament that people really started to notice everything wrong with it.... 1 good thing about it is that Darrel got 4th. <3

Damn Darrell's Samus was looking major on point. Abate making top 10 and my boy MattDotZeb getting 13th. Nice tourney guys, congrats to Mango and Mew2King for the finals.

Too many Foxes and generic high-tiers. Please tell me not every tournament is this embarrassingly boring to watch.

Shoutouts to Darrel and Abate, I was rooting for you guys to kill off all of the stupid Foxes and you guys did a damn good job. Darrell especially looked incredible.

In the Challonge Bracket, it says Kirbykaze 2 - Hungrybox 0, but it highlights Hungrybox as the winner. Probably just a mistake with the score?

Well that's just how melee is, those are the characters that work. If that is too stale for you, check out project m it has a huge variety of match ups.
P.S I was rooting for Darrell too his samus was sick.

It's either that or back to Brawl's "wide selection" at the top. Either way, good stuff
