A couple nights ago we saw Tekken Crash return with an exhibition for Tekken 7. The archive of that event is now up on their youtube channel. Note, that it is the older build of the game, so there is no footage of Lucky Chloe or Shaheen. Its still cool to see some high level play in that build of the game.
AK from the Philippines just turned 13 years old and took 3rd place at the TTT2 Global Championship! Using one of my personal favorite teams, Law and Paul, he rocked the Tekken world and proved that he had the skill necessary to take out top Korean players. The tournament was one of the most exciting Tekken tournament’s to watch in the past few years and everyone should take a look at it when they have a chance. HUUUUGGGGE shoutout to Markman and Spooky for commentating the event and CafeID for streaming the event! Another huge shoutout to Namco Bandai for putting together and hosting the event for Tekken fans worldwide. Be sure to follow and subscribe to all of these guys and check out the archives:

LDMaxi has been on vacation back in Korea and recently had a long conversation with JDCR. This isn’t a interview per se, but its a cool chat with one of the top Tekken players in the world, JDCR. If you don’t remember LDmaxi, he used to upload the Gosu Tekken videos recorded from Green Arcade a few years ago and sometimes Aris and I used to commentate on them. Check out his cool interview below. Listening to this, I can say that I really miss LDMaxi content and I love that JDCR speaks english so well:
JDCR has been to the USA three times in the past year, and has won every event he has come to, MLG Dallas 2012, Final Round and now ECT.
