The Tekken World Tour Standings are Currently Incorrect. Here's a Link to the Correctly Updated Standings

It has been brought to our attention recently that the current Tekken World Tour standings have been incorrectly calculated as of right now. At least for the Asia-Pacific region, I'm not paying too much attention to how the maths are currently being counted across the whole board. It is said that top 5 Tekken point earners in the 3 regional leaderboards are invited to the grand finals later this year but the point allocation haven't been completely following in line with the rules on the Tekken World Tour website. The leaderboards were a bit slow to update before but the incorrect points now make it unreliable to follow. Thankfully, Sathaporn on Twitter has taken upon himself to follow all the TWT event news and curate an online document that is reflecting the current standings more reliably. This makes for a more handy bookmark should you be interested in following the TWT. You can check out his TWT Standings document below over here:

Tekken 7 - Knee VS Nobi Arcade Deathmatches

Clash of the Tekken titans once again, Nobi and Knee came together in Japan to battle it out for region pride. Historically, Knee is usually the dominating deathmatching machine that ends up demoting most of the people he plays against but Nobi in recent times have been going back and forth with Knee across Tekken Tag Tournament 2 to Tekken 7 vanilla and now the current version of Tekken 7 in arcades. It's the countries' best pitted against each other so come check out how it all went down. Once again, huge thanks goes to Kuro Kuro for streaming and uploading all the match footage.

Tekken 7 - Knee (Kazuya) VS Kari (Yoshimitsu) Arcade Deathmatches

Yet another set of high level deathmatches from the Korean invasion of the Tokyo Tekken Masters event, Knee runs a lengthy set in Akihabara's Leisure Land with the newly sponsored Japanese Yoshimitsu player Kari. Knee might be familiar to most but Kari is perhaps considered the best Yoshimitsu player on the planet right now. He hails from the Kyushu region of Japan with a scene of local Tekken monsters along the likes of Gen, Taisei, Chikurin & Noroma. Having made notable strides in Tekken 7, he found himself sponsored by his job at the Hotel/Apparel division (Aim-Crane) of the Japanese SFIDA company. He even already announced plans to come to Evo in Las Vegas next year so he is definately a Tekken player to watch. The full set of deathmatch videos come courtesy of Kuro Kuro's YouTube page.
