LPL, in conjunction with Standing Fierce, will host a one-day offline TEKKEN 7 World Tour offline qualifier in Auckland on Saturday, September 9 at the SKYCITY Auckland Welcome Room.
The TEKKEN WORLD TOUR is an international tournament series for the iconic fighting franchise TEKKEN. The 2017 tour sees BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment, Inc. teaming up with Twitch to bring competitors from around the world together to fight for over $200,000 in prize money.
With Region-Locked Leaderboards spanning the Americas, Europe and Asia-Pacific, the TEKKEN WORLD TOUR will qualify the best TEKKEN 7 players from each region into the TEKKEN WORLD TOUR Finals.
As a challenger event, the offline qualifier will offer 160 TEKKEN World Tour circuit points in the Asia-Pacific leaderboards. Challenger events are open bracket tournaments. You must be from that event’s region to earn points on the regional leaderboard.
Players will accrue points based on the World Tour rules.
The top 4 players from the TWT International Qualifier will then proceed to compete in the TEKKEN 7 NX Championship Ultimate Grand Final on September 11 to compete against NZ’s top 4 TEKKEN 7 players.
