My thoughts on the Tekken tournament:

1. The skill gap between East and West hardly changed. Thailand and the Philippines sent 1 player each, Pakistan sent 2, Japan and Korea around 11 each. Barring two of them (Mimi and Kkokkoma), they all made the top 48, and 7 of them made the top 8. The US had over a 1000 players and none made the top 8 in their own turf.

2. Super happy for Khan's performance, he needed that to clear up his name after a part of the Pakistani community accused him of cheating (Started by a salty Bilal) and SpeedKicks adding fuel to the fire.

3. I feel bad for Gen. For two consecutive years, he was argubly the most consistent Tekken player in the world, but his performance tanked this year. Still a great player and could have probably beaten Khan with freaking Shaheen if he didn't mess up that combo. I don't understand why he went with Shaheen but who am I to judge his decisions anyway.

4. Pinya vs Jeondding is the set of the year. Pinya pretty much carried Japan into the top 8. Not Gen, not Nobi, and certainly not my man Chikurin.

5. US players have developed a familiarity with Arslan's gameplayer style to the point of being much worse for him than Japanese and Korean players (Knee excluded). CuddleCore beat his ass 2-1 with 6 consecutive rounds the other day, and now Shadow 6-0's him. Several US playres are beating or giving him trouble in short sets. It's interesting to see.

6. Doujin's loss to Meo-IL was a heartbreaker. Dude played out of his mind.

My thoughts on Pakistanis being an unbeatable army of "Arslan Ashes":

This narratiive has been debunked multiple times already. Arslan Ash is comfortably the strongest Pakistani player. The gap between the top 5 Pakistani players and those outside the top 20 is quite big. When Chikurin visited Pakistan, everyone made a fuss about how he was destroyed, which isn't quite true. Chikurin played against the top 19 Pakistanis hand-picked by Arslan Ash. He won/dominated 13 sets and lost 7. 3 of the sets he lost were to Akuma players. It's widely known that the world struggles against Akuma, especially at that time. Pakistani players admittedly dropped their mains in favor of Akuma to capitalize on Korean/Japanese players' weakness as well as Akuma being OP. Aside from Arslan Ash, their fundamental game isn't better or worse. They're comparable.

When Knee went to Pakistan, he played against some 40 players in long sets and crushed the majority of them in a VERY dominant fashion (even Ash lost 5-15 to him). Knee only lost to 3 Pakistanis then: Heera Malik, The Jon, and Meruem. As it stands, Knee is the world's best player. Arlsan Ash has better reactions (Knee is 37) but that's about his only advantage. Knee's Feng is looking unstoppable right now and I'm not basing this off his Evo performance, but rather his recent performances in general. He's an absolute machine with unparalleled knowledge, adaptation, and situational awareness.

Now that Ash is in the losers bracket, I just don't see Knee losing this one. Nothing is impossible mind you but Knee's Feng is frighteningly good right now.

I like this also ANakin hates being pressed at the wall by khan, Pinya is not better than arslan ash but Pinya destroyed cuddlecore so so hard she broke from the style of japanese master raven but pinya master raven is different from other japanese players and everytime Pinya launched cuddlecore same alise tools the same alisa that 6 - 0 arslan ash zafina at red bull. the character and style that fits intergrated from the player will determin the outcome in surprise shock and also the downloads from opponent style from many matches ranchu was being held back from panda though he did win a major with panda until he picked Julia where he smashed shadow20z style of the toolbox of character and how it fits them works when nothing else no longer does, Cuddlecore needs a 3rd character and anakin is being predictable that the rematch from khan that khan bested him in evo 2022 khan been training with awais honey too much khan is a heavyweight in top 8 now. All USA players are eliminated they had 1000's enter tekken 7 none made it It's sad day but the bolded I bolded quoted you yes few entered from other countries made top 8 none are USA :(. Anakin needs a secondary main not an actual secondary something like what Knee is doing with Feng or Ranchu from panda to julia. reminsnce of evo grand finals JDCR vs saint , JDCR having heihachi and dragunov when heihachi can't vs jack back then.

It's extremely difficult to be consistent in (genuinely) stacked tournaments no matter how good you are, and yes of course playstyles are a huge factor. CuddleCore is doing great for an A+ tier player looking to go higher. But I wouldn't call her an S tier just yet, as this is reserved to the top 60~ players in the world (including the countless players who don't travel). Anakin is super good, overperforming if anything. Crazy how good he is with a character that's universally considered trash or mid at best. I guess some players perform better when they commit to a single low-mid level character than to have a bunch of sub characters they can't use optimally.

Pinya doesn't have much international experience and generally sucked against western players until recently. Joey Fury, CuddleCore, Mr. Taxi, and SuperAkouma all convincingly beat him in Kurokuro's FT10's. It's nice to see him improve and get the experience he needed.



Around the Network

Anakin can get better trust me I believe he can lead USA just needs another main, He can use both Jack and whoever simulatiously hope he picks a top tier male character even though Jack is mid tier and Arslan ash being super human with Zafina an extremely low rank character is scary I wonder what arslan can do with a high tier character besides geese but his geese hes not commited but if he commits to second main like JDCR commited to dragunov like his heihachi it be palatable, Anakin got to find the right top tier character for himself and America for USA sake they need him more. Anakin being asian is a plus since asians dominating most asian fighting games like justin wong.



Cute and honest Sega Saturn fan, also noone should buy Sega grrrr, Sega for life. The reason I'm chaotic to few 3rd party developers is because I'm protecting Sega and also I lack skill to get really hot girl I really want. also few devs deserve it for making bad game's personal experiences, looking at Ghost Blade HD the shmup or Fighting EX Layer. My standards are too high for genres I play. KOF 13 > Fighting EX layer gameplay.

That may or may not be true as it takes experimenting and a load of patience. Some low-mid tier players actually perform worse when they attempt to use higher tiers, and give up on committing. It depends entirely on the player and their inherent strengths and weaknesses.

Arslan dropped Geese and Kazumi at the end of 2019 when a lot of players started beating him, then committed to Zafina (his Tekken Tag 2 main) upon release and found a lot of success with her (T7 Zafina is a high/top tier character. Tag 2's Zafina was low tier). Chikurin aside, Geese players at Season 3 performed poorly early on (IIRC Meo-IL and Khan placed 65th at TWT Finals 2019), and Arslan pretty much dropped him.

Bolded I guess you're right but I don't think this applies to everyone I mean looking at Knee and his large amount of catelog of characters he uses though, That one pakistan Lili player who beat Awais Honey in tournament was unreal I'll look for the video will edit later.

Worst low tier character obliterates top tier character both Pakistan players

You mean Shahbaz Eagle?

Okay I saw the video, it's a nice feat sure, but singular feats don't amount to much without consistent results. Unknown/less-known low-tier players beating top players on a regional level happens all the time.
