Such an amazing event at Namco HQ. There were a lot of new passionate players, current skilled players and also some veterans making an appearance. Needless to say the tournament was extremely tough and every group had their killers, though I would say Group 1 took the prize in terms of hardest group.
Namco had allowed us to come into their HQ and make it our home for the next 9 hours, we were invited to play the mini games they had available as well as play casuals on their PS4 setups. Which made the wait easier for the groups who were set to play later on in the day. Unfortunately, 7 of the 64 players did not decide to show up which meant that 7 places could have gone to other players. Notably, Spain’s Caiper was unable to attend the event as well as some other no shows such as MBA_Syn (badbreathsyn).
Here are some pictures from the day:
A few members of the community also made awesome highlight videos, shout outs to King Jae, Arsenalty and Bamagix. Each video has its own use but collectively they cover the events highlights. There are also some post event interviews conducted by King Jae himself.
The event was amazing and Tekken 7 already seems to be pulling its own weight by attracting a lot of new attention. I know I speak for all Tekken fans when I hope that Tekken 7 can revive a somewhat comatose community.
In the end, Kaneandtrench secured a very clean victory over CherryBerryMango and is now preparing for his trip to Japan.
