As restrictions begin to be lifted as vaccines become widely available, we are beginning to see a slight return to normality. For competitive gaming, this could mean that we will once again enjoy the offline events as the end of the year approaches. It’s still too early for the sheer size Events like EVO Or Combo Breaker. For now, online events are still an important part of the competitive fighting games ecosystem. Bandai Namco clearly understands this, as the publisher announced that day Tekken The online challenge is back this year.
The Tekken The Online Challenge is a series of online events that allow players from all over the world to compete for money and glory. There will be 14 major events and 14 regional events for 14 different regions throughout the year. These regions include: North America, Central America, South America, Western Europe, Eastern Europe, West Africa, South Africa, the Middle East, South Asia, Southeast Asia, the Philippines, East Asia, Oceania, Korea and Japan. Astro Gaming is sponsoring the event and corresponds to the prize pool for a total of $ 100,000.
Not only that, but the Online Dojo system is back too. Independent tournament organizers can apply for their events online to be counted in the season with a minimum of 16 entrants. Each event is rewarded points for placing it in the top eight, and each type of event varies according to its size. For example, 1st place in the Master event gives you 300 points, while 1st place in the 16-player Online Dojo event only gives you 75 points. Players who advance better in larger events with more senior players naturally get more points.
Tekken Online challenge returns with new competitors
At the end of the season, the players with the most points will advance to their Regional Finals. Information is sparse now, but player guides, organizer guides, and full rules will be uploaded to Official Page So. When this happens, tournament organizers will also be able to submit their events online to Online Dojo.
On top of all this, a new balance update will be dropped for the game on May 27th. Players will only have four short days to adjust to any changes before the season starts. It would be a lot of fun to see, but personally I’m glad to finally see the start of the competition again.
