If you’re a Tekken fan like me, then you’ll be happy to hear that the weekend has an ample amount of Tekken. The question is, will it be good ass?
The 10th iteration of the Tekken master cup in Japan. Teams of 5, made up of players from all around the world will be competing. This tournament cannot be part of the Tekken world tour of course, but it is a prestigious tournament.
The Master Cup try is also quite interesting. It’s a tournament where the winner is given a pro player License. It’s 1 v 1 and players who already have a license obviously can’t join. Dreams are going to be made or broken in this one.
Despite the big fan base in Atlanta, the east coast tends to be a more of a Street Fighter scene then Tekken. As such, they are skipping the stream for Tekken 7 pool in favor of Street Fighter V. This is a disappointing to me personally, seeing as I am not a SFV fan. There will be quite an extensive Soul Calibur VI tournament and so far it has been quite entertaining. Unfortunately, KPBLive will be streaming it. I’m not going to stay awake until 6am, and I am not paying 5 bucks to watch VODs. Lastly, this tournament will serve as a last chance qualifier for the Injustice Pro Series. Which means Sonicfox will be attending but not competing. Instead he’ll be playing Soul Calibur and DBFZ.
Our Tekken World Tour event this week is a challenger event in Berlin. The tour is almost done with several players on the cusp of getting into the world championship. That’d why Dimeback and Fergus primarily are there. They really need those points. Will Super Akouma and Tissuemon steal these points away from them? Find out this Saturday and Sunday.
Over in Manchester, England we have MBA Warriors Reborn. Apparently it’s “Manchester’s First Major in Four Years!” Well that’s great if you ask me. More Tekken.

We have more Canadian melee, which special guest Project M. Unlike another recent Canadian Melee tournament in this area, I hope they keep the french to a minimum, so I can watch it.
