This week we got plenty of FGC events but no outstanding non-FGC eSports events. Oh well, there’s something happening all around the globe. North America, Europe, and Asia has events going on this week. As usual though, some information is hard to come by. I will update accordingly when the necessary information becomes available.
As the name suggests, this is Tekken world tour masters event in Tokyo. The website is mostly in Japanese, so I can’t make heads or tails of it.
There isn’t a single schedule in sight, so I hope at least the players know when to show up. But I’m fairly sure that it’s going to be streamed on the Tekken Twitch account. Maybe in English since I Rip is going to be there.
There seems to have been some hesitation on the organizer’s part. But in the end they said, and I quote, “Fuck it, we’re doing it.” Alcohol most definitely lead to this decision. But I’m glad they drank. It led to quite the prestigious European Smash Melee tournament.
Heir 5 is exclusively a Smash Melee event, they’re not having anything else. Clash of the Carolinas 2 comes in to fill this void. They got Melee, WiiU, and Project M events, and some FGC on the side.

A Capcom pro tour and DBFZ world tour event in Taipai City, Taiwan. Hometown of a dear friend of mine who has no interest in fighting games. But that’s okay. Street Fighter and DBFZ aren’t my cup of tea, but I’m gonna leave these here for those of you who like cream.
