The Era of Dominance
An unprecedented feat has been achieved by the Pakistani player in Tekken 7. He took home the EVO and EVO Japan titles twice (both in 2019 and in 2023). He also won EVO Japan, EVO, and their pro tour finals in the same year. This made him a Triple Crown Champion.
Arslan is widely regarded as the greatest Tekken player of all time. He has accomplished many other achievements with a variety of characters. ESPN awarded him the top esports player in 2019. He single-handedly exposed a lot of players to an entire community of players.
What He Stands For
However, the road was never easy for him. During his years, he was faced with challenges of visas, lack of sponsorships and very limited exposure to the international scene. Despite these obstacles, he did not give up. Instead, he inspired and motivated many players from Pakistan and around the world. He also showed his country and culture with pride and honor.
Arslan Ash’s legacy in Tekken 7 is not only about winning tournaments and titles. It is also about breaking barriers and making history. He proved that anyone can achieve their dreams, no matter where they are from or what challenges they face. He did it all with a smile on his face. That is why many call him the greatest of all time.
