Rip’s Tekken 7 Impressions from NCR / Final Round

by Rip

Whats up guys! In the past month I’ve got to play Tekken 7 at both Final Round, and just this past weekend, at Norcal Regionals. I got to spend a lot of time with the game and got to try out the 4 new characters in Lucky Chloe, Shaheen, Claudio, and Katarina. I’ve put together a video talking about my general feelings about the game in its current state, my thoughts about the characters I’ve used, and my thoughts on the possible console release date of the game. Check it out below!

Final Round Recaps – TTT2 and KI

by Rip

Last week Primagames sent me out to Final Round, which was, yet again, an amazing tournament. I competed in TTT2 and Killer Instinct. I thought it might be interesting to share the experience of my losses, both to learn for myself, and for others to gain some insight into how to approach tournaments. Odds are you’re not going to win your first tournament, so its important to learn from your losses to minimize the chances of losing the same way again in the future. If you’re interested, check out my recap for the TTT2 tournament and my recap for the Killer Instinct tournament.

$5000 Tekken Tag 2 Bonus for Final Round

by Rip

Over at the official Final Round website they’ve announced that Namco Bandai has donated $5000 to the pot for Tekken Tag Tournament 2! Final Round is home to one of the largest Tekken tournaments of the year. Here’s what they had to say:

“I would like to thank BANDAI NAMCO GAMES for their continued support of the Tekken scene by donating $5,000 bonus to the TTT2 tournament at FINAL ROUND 16. Remember that the winner of the TTT2 tournament at FINAL ROUND 16 wins a flight/badge/tournament entry to ECTV as a part of the East coast Tekken circuit! The winner will also qualify for ‘THE FALL CLASSIC”! More details coming soon about this exciting new tournament series! You don’t want to miss out on this great event”

The past two years I’ve missed out on it thinking flights would get cheaper, then watching as flight prices just rose higher and higher. I’m definitely going this year though, along with a couple others from Socal! Looking forward to it! Final Round takes place March 29-31 (TTT2 on the 30th/31st) in Atlanta, Georgia.

by Rip

EDIT: Congrats to FightingGM for winning Tekken 6, COMBOFIEND for winning Marvel vs Capcom 3, and DMG’s PR Rog for winning Super Street Fighter 4!

The Final Round XIV action continues today with Top 16 for all of the games. According to the schedule, the stream for Tekken 6 will be switched to teamsp00ky today, so we shouldn’t have the sound lag issues that we had yesterday. Incase they decide to switch things up on us though, I’ve put both streams here, so you can watch whichever you feel like.

Top 16 for Tekken 6
Winners side: x6.Anakin, Killa6, FightingGM, RyRy, DrumEFX, Trungy, Pokchop, and I think Clint
Losers side: x6.JustFrameJames, Kodee Vu, Real Law, ATL_R3dd, LingMassacre, Lil Majin, Bloodhawk, OFdp
