I’ve been following Tekken player, Lil Majin since CEO 2016. I was very impressed at how he handled Jack-7 player, Anakin. At this years CEO he left his mark yet again.
I’m not going to spoil this fight, I will not rob you of the hype, dear reader. This match was to qualify for a spot in the top 8 and it was incredible.
I haven’t been following the FGC, or even esports in general, for very long. It was only a few years ago that I started watching events here and there. Now I watch them all the time. Tekken works especially well as spectator sport.
At the end of one round, I saw from the situation what he was about to do. Because I saw him do the same thing at the Eleague tournament, where he fought Bryan Fury player, and the player formerly known as “Mr. Naps”, Jimmy J Tran.
There is an attack called a rage drive that a player can only use when their health is low and they can only use it once per round. Lil Majin hits his opponent to the ground, uses his character, King’s, rage drive to hit his opponent while they are down, stunning them. They are stunned long enough for him to finish them off by jumping high into the air and come down hard with an elbow drop. It is badass.
When I saw it coming, I hopped out of my chair and when he jumped, I jumped into the air screaming. If you’re into Tekken, or think you might enjoy it, definitely look into this young man, because he is going places.
