Translated Highlights from LowHigh's Self-Analysis Stream of Beast Arena Hong Kong

Fresh off his recent Tekken World Tour win, LowHigh went home to Korea to quickly do a post-tournament analysis stream where he goes in depth into his decision making during his matches. Since the stream was primarily Korean discussion, we have Yoshikki over on r/Tekken to thank for translating most of the notable bits from the stream. It's an elaborate piece of work that goes into the strategy of the matches so it makes for a really good read if you want to delve deeper into LowHigh's mind and what he thought about his opponents during the tournament. An archive of the stream can be found below but here's a link to the full post by Yoshikki over on r/Tekken.

Korean Player MajorOneTenHundred's Analysis on Knee's Feng pick for REV Major

REV Major 2017 was without a doubt one of the best showing of Tekken 7 at tournaments we've seen but it can be hard to feel involved with the players and scene with foreign players making most of the dominanting performance. Language barrier makes things a hurdle so every informant/spy that comes along to give us the juicy details and behind the scenes of what's going on in other Tekken communities is pretty valuable. For most of the viewers watching REV Major, they might not know what's going on with Knee who's known for his Bryan/Mishima play to opt to go and use Feng against his opponents in a tournament. Thanks to Kihyun96 over on Reddit, he managed to translate a big analysis post on Knee's character choice done by the Feng player MajorOneTenHundred (일십백) which provides context and details to help clue people in. Big thanks goes to him for translating this analysis, you can read it over on the r/tekken subreddit.

Tekken 7 Pre-Launch Version - Looking at the Combo System

Update: Added a few more important bits of information in the stage awareness section.

Tekken 7 is a new game and with that comes with some new changes. Early reports from Japanese arcade goers paints an interesting picture as to how you will want to craft your combos in the new game. Now that bound as we normally use to perform them is altered and mostly removed, there's a new combo extending property that looks to 'bound' the opponent a greater distance then before in previous Tekken games. Just so we're all clear on what to call them, Bandai Namco is officially calling these new moves 'Screw Attacks' (Abbreviation - S!) so I guess the community can move on from calling the attacks Kirimomi/Tailspins. I've also got some other interesting quirks of the combo system in Tekken 7 that I feel like should be looked at so I've added all of those below. Of course, this all comes from a 'pre-launch' version of the game so this could all very well change in the future so do keep note of that.
