What happened before...
Before Tekken, there was MK11 and Soulcalibur VI. For the former, tournament favorite, SonicFox emerged as the winner, while Woahhzz was the champion for Soulcalibur VI
Each tournament was filled with hype moments from Arnkratos surprising everyone on the first day of MK11 battles, to Myloes' insane showing at the Soulcalibur tournament too.
If I did have to pick a hype moment that stuck with me, it would have to be that Grand Final between SonicFox and Tekken Master. With both players at four games each, it seemed like Tekken Master might just have the edge and with his impressive display with Cetrion, it looked like the man from Bahrain might take it. But SonicFox had other plans. As the master of clutch comebacks, they pressured Tekken Master and trapped him at the wall which is a horrible place to find yourself with Joker. Eventually, TM was worn down and SonicFox claimed a tense victory to reset the bracket.
The tournament was not without its cringe moments. For instance, there was the thing with Sheeva
While that was a humorous moment, I absolutely loved it because its a moment no one would forget. Something of an aberration in an otherwise flawless tournament. The FGC has a wacky side, and it was nice to see that in full display. That said, we could have done without seeing it for Soulcalibur, but, we weren't so lucky.
The pocket team clash also featured a lot of silly moments and memeable pictures, especially from the UK players who have some of the best expressions in all of esports. I mean, just look at DizzyTT
VideoGamezYo also gave us a great picture to have a bit of fun with.
