Tekken 8

Tekken 8 was even more intense as not only was a qualifier event, but also a challenger event on the Tekken World Tour with some of the biggest names in the game. For many this was their only chance to qualify and for players like AK it was a chance to showcase his strength after a huge win at Combo Breaker. In the end though it was not the CB champion taking first place. It was a player who actually got 7th place at the event. Nobi took home the crown and the qualifier alongside Rangchu, CBM, Mulgold, AK, Arslan Ash, Sephiblack and Farzeen for the trip to EWC.

Meanwhile in BAM, it was a mixture of Australian talent and the korean players who decided to travel of Melbourne. Partly might be due to the lack of competition, but also it was a Tekken World Tour master event so even more points than the Dreamhack Dallas tournament for landing a high placement. In the end Chanel and LowHigh took first and second place making the qualifier spots the next two qualifiers being Ulsan from Korea and Yagami who defended the home turf and claimed one of the finalist spots.
