    1. If the memory serves me well, the following 8 players have already qualified:

      Kibia – Malaysia
      JDBC – Korea
      Nin – Korea
      Knee – Korea
      Mr. NAPS – USA
      ChetChetty – USA
      Gen1us – France
      Steve88 – Italy

      and the rest will qualify durin a pre-eliminaries right before the Finals.

  1. this is a tournament that i have been waiting for,a true champion will only emerge when people from all different parts of the world participate, i have feeling that japan wins

  2. “Namco Bandai Games Staff will not tolerate excuses attributed to mobile phone rings, itches, sneezes etc.
    and their decision is final.”

    Damn, they are VERY serious when it comes to gaming. This is why I don’t go on tourneys!!!

    1. Come on, man! The players need to focus, right? And many jackasses try to psyc them out by making silly noises and stuff.. it’s ok to mention this rule, but they rerly implement it. Someone has to make really loud noise before they exclude him.

      Any-hoo… I think some korean guy og some Japanese guy will win. Yuo, Japs are good at this shit, good reactions and stuff. Someone wants to bet? I bet on a japanese guy to be Tekken world champion!

    1. @Robbie

      To call Tekken a button masher, or nearly claiming it to be a button masher is just disrespectful, you don’t see anyone in calling street fighter 4 a spamming game cause you see ken players 24/7 SHORYUKEN!SHORYUKEN! (that actually applies to all shotos), and same for fire balls. Tekken is just as good as street fighter. In fact BETTER, I accept that sf4 has a wider fanbase.But I’ve been playing Tekken for a very long time and, i’ve never been beaten by a “button masher”, maybe some people should actually take the time to learn it cause its a very strategic game. Tekken’s bounce system requires much brain work, and strategy.

      So please do not call games button mashers you’ve yet taken the time to actually play it.For those of you who call games button mashers,of course.

      1. Admit it, when non-gamers can put up a decent fight to non-tournament mid-level players by mashing random buttons, creating random strings of pre-programmed combos, it’s partially a button masher.

        This obviously does not apply to playing against tournament caliber players but you’ll see a much higher success rate of button mashers winning in Tekken, even against decent players, then ‘spammers’ winning in Street Fighter.

  3. Wow, I cant wait for this one =) I love that they are serious about the rules, the gaming should be serious like any other sport, that does not say the players should not have fun while playing though :P

    Also, that should be me travelling to japan to play, how awesome wouldnt that be? ^^ If not to play, just to watch would be fun!

      1. lol. maybe…but I based that matchup off what Di said in his comment up top and Sunchip isnt on his list so…
        Id love to see two good Bryans play eachother…and NAPs Bryan is good…but Knees is better

      2. true… sun chip isnt there… he mightve have been lazy… considering that JDCR is on the list…. but then again he can match sun chip… so can rain… and now holeman can… but still hankuma owns all those other players… except knee xD …

        i agree naps’ bryan is good…. but knees reactions are even better now… since B! is added his combos are more deadlier… he was killer enough in t5dr how much more if knee goes all out in this tournament… hes even with NIN in this tourney…

        i want to see this so bad… i hope korea wins…

    1. i think dats not a good match knee vs mr.naps .. i think even mid level players in korea would beat naps no doubt.. you would really see the difference in the game play in each of the countries.. and i think phil should be one of them..

  4. The list I’ve posted was made using the following results:

    European Championship, 12th December:
    1. Gen1us (Paul) – France
    2. Steve88 (Steve) – Italy
    3. The_Emperor (Jack-6) – Sweden
    4. Wogus (Bob) – Korean, but he was representing The Netherlands as its champion

    North American Championship, 12th December:
    1. ChetChetty (Paul)
    2. Mr. NAPS (Bryan)
    3. Bronson/insanelee (Julia)
    4. Aris (Dragunov)

    Asian Championship (or maybe Korean Championship?), 22nd December:
    1. Nin (Steve)
    2. Knee (Steve, Bryan)
    3/4. Lee Mario (Roger Jr., Marduk), Misty (Eddy)
    (all from South Korea)

    Asian Championship, 24nd December:
    1. JDCR (Bryan) – South Korea
    2. Kiba (Steve) – Malaysia
    3. Shinz (Steve) – Singapour
    4. Xiao Snake (Armor King) – Taywan

    Two best players from each tournament advanced to the Finals.

    1. tsk tsk… how could you say that… did you know hu won the sbo.. japan did , so the word weak is inaproppriate but i think ur ryt n some form because most koreans really dominate the tekken scene..

  5. namco send me a mail about this accepting something :S did anyone else get it? i was playing tekken 6 online and the send me a mail :S

    1. and what expansion is that? the expansion in basically tekken 6 BR… unless you’re talking about something else added to tekken 6 BR in this case nothing really… just a couple of useless patches that wasted bandwith…

  6. if Di is right i find it ironic that no japanese participate in this tourny eventhough they are hosting the world championship

  7. If you take a closed look at my previous entry you’ll realise that there is a place for 8 players left, meaning that those 8 may be the Japanese.

    Yet, I’m not 100% sure about what has been written by me here since there hasn’t been yet official info considering the participant’s list.

    1. The tournament only has 16 players in it. You have already listed 16 players. That doesn’t leave 8 players more to come!

    1. Ha ha ha.. No man, I think they have hot-dog and burgers in Japan! You don’t need that sushi-shit og whatever sea-weed they’re eating over there!

  8. weird… how come they never include EVERYONE in the world at the same time >_>

    it’s quite unfair for 3rd world countries. :0 what happened to the Philippines xD

  9. Man namco is making it this tekken game so frustrating this fuckin error code shit mess wit my ability 2 sign in 2 PSN but i cant play tekken6 period cause of the dumb ass trophy’s can’t load itself fuck i dont even care about trophy’s I just wanna play tekken. Man fuck namco i am done with this fuckin game 1st lame ass online and list of other dumb ass bug an issue’s man I just about had it and I bought the $160 hori bundle this what happens. BTW if u own a slim PS3 UR good 2 bad I bought mines 2 years ago just for tekken thanks namco & sony…….weak

  10. diesel son- its not namcos fault for the bug

    its your ps3 thats where the problem is

    its system clock made conflict with the os clock about leap year

    hence old ps3s like the 60,40,20 gbs have been affected

    they couldnt play online/offline but it only lasted for a day so its already good again ^^

    1. Nothing is on lock, because Japanese best players will join Global Championship FINAL.

      Japan and Korea is pretty even in BR.

  11. Nin (Korea) won the Xbox 360 block defeating a fellow Korean player and JDCR (Korea) won the PS3 block defeating Yuu of Japan…
    Very intense fight from eliminations to the championships!
    Really glad to have attended the event today!
