While team tournaments have long been a fixture of fighting game events, they have often been overshadowed by singles action — where an individual, rather than a group, takes the glory. But with events like Gfinity Series, Tekken Master Cup, and Cooperation Cup all getting a lot of attention lately, this could soon change.

Gerald Lee of Core-A Gaming discusses how he feels that the format creates a different atmosphere than singles competition. He also discusses the camaraderie the format builds in players’ mentalities, when they have to care about everyone else on their team.
