Our very own Richard “FilthieRich” Bantegui, who has been working as the MLG Tekken 6 director for the past few months and who has recently become the Official Community Manager has agreed to answer your questions, dear readers! Post them in the comments down below!
Hi everyone! SDTEKKEN.COM is currently under construction! We will be revamping the site over the next few months as we await the full relaunch just in time for TEKKEN 6! Look forward to dedicated videos, podcasts, and in depth info! Soon, here on SDT!
Have a tip for SDTEKKEN? Let us know via email at firstname.lastname@example.org !
When are we going to Japan to hang out with Murray-san & Harada-san?
RICH SINCE YOU ARE THE OFFICIAL COMMUNITY MANGER NETWORK FOR NAMCO IS IT A FAIR ASSUMPTION THAT YOU GET MORE INSIGHT AND INFO ON WHAT NAMCO IS DOING THAN BEFORE? IF SO, CAN YOU SHARE SOME OF THE INFO ( THAT TEKKEN FAN ARE UNWARE OF) ON WHAT NAMCO IS DOING. , DO YOU THINK IT IS HARDER FOR YOU TO FOCUS ON MLG SINCE YOU ARE RECENTLY BECOME THE OFFICIAL COMMUNITY MANGER, DONT YOU WORRY THAT THESE TWO INTERFERE WITH EACH OTHER? AND LASTLY FILTHIERICH , ASKING QUESTION TO YOU AND OTHER SKILLFUL TEKKEN PLAYERS IS GREAT BUT MANY PEOPLE ALSO WOULD LOVE TO PLAY TEKKEN WITH YOU GUYS, IS THERE ANY CHANCE , WHERE YOU GUYS CAN HAVE OPEN LOBBIES WITH A GIVEN DATE AND HOUR SO YOUR FANS CAN JOIN AND PLAY TEKKEN WITH YOU GUYS? THANK YOU
I don’t think asking him to risk his job (letting info out early), is a good idea.
But go ahead with the other two questions.
oh ok i didint mean to put rich in any sort of trouble so forget the first question i ask.
Since you’re back to using Hei (going by Twitter), what problems are you running into when using Bryan or Leo?
Are you gonna look at ‘character wishlist’ threads and forward it to the head honchos of the company? :D
Why is it so hard to find frame data? inatekken is too hard to read. You would think there is not a single english speaking person in Japan who could make an english version of the frame data.
can we get customizations available for player 2 on versus mode of console?
How much Tekken do you play weekly? How much Tekken do you believe one needs to play (,i.e. hours daily, hours weekly or time in years,) to master the character they wish to main?
With Streetfighter and Tekken being highly successful games, how do you believe a crossover such as Streetfighter X Tekken will effect the fighting game genre, gaming, or the entertainment industry in general?
Why does my Tekken 6 load up searching for DLC when there will probably never be anymore?
Will Namco ever update Tekken 6 with record feature in the future!?
Do you think MLG will keep Tekken 6 for next year or do you think it will be replaced with SSF4 or maybe MVC3? If it is replaced, what will you do?
I’m just asking…
Rich you’re working on getting ride of Lee’s 1P costume right? Unicorns, tight leather pants, and mesh sleeves? Can’t we get something a little more badass?
If not that what about getting us some “Fight Clubs”/Location tests for TTT2? I know you just joined up and you can’t work miracles but is there even a possibility for Loc tests in America?
I think loc tests help build hype for games that aren’t released at. They get people talking, spread information, just all around are good for business. They seem to work well with Capcom’s games so see if you can’t make this happen.
Filthy, filthy, filthy……
Who is your favorite ninja turtle of all time?
Fo’ real son!
Your favourite Soul Calibur character?
how many characters can you play? who do you think are the top 5 characters in tekken 6? and who is your favorite foreign player and why?
Congratulations for your new job FilthieRich! You are the representative of the community Tekken. Is this representation restricted only to the North and Central America? Have you already plans to also listen to the voice of others of countries, especially Brazil where I live? Thank you very much.
Congratulations on your success FilthieRich :) Since you’re the community manager and all, how do you expect to voice out the communities concerns to Namco? Will you still be participating in tournaments or help organize them? And being Filipino and all, do you think players from the Philippines will ever be able to get their shot at some international tournaments?
Hey Rich,I know your property of The Tekken Zaibatsu now , but will you still keep it real and fight for what we want ?? and what matters to Tekken Fans world wide.
also can you tell ” PROJECT SOUL ” TO go FUCK THEMSELVES !! and tell Harada San or Michael Murray Bring back the Original Team that did : SOUL CALIBUR and SOUL CALIBUR 2 ??
Please tell them to spend some time on SC5 and to Beta test it Properly in the arcades so they get Feed back, and enough with that Creat a Soul Shit , that’s garbage, customization should be the same as tekken.
but the Color pallete should stay and tekken should pick that up.
anyway Congrats on your new job, oh and plz answer this question. plz , from one tekken Vet to another.
I will not allow any of these insulting questions to go up. Come on Blind Ghost, none of that here.
Allright, allright , maybe i could have phrased it better, but you know as well as i do markamn ,that SC3 and SC4 were lackluster, 1 and 2 will forever be the best SC in the entire series, the amount of depth offered in those 2 games has yet to be seen again in the games that followed.
all im asking him to do is get the word out to Harada-san and Michael Murray that if they are planning another SC, they need to take thier time on it. i like SC.
so its a complaint that comes from love, and frustration.
there , is that better ??
Yeah Rich tell them we don’t want another Soul Calibur unless they do it right. SC3 and SC4 were trash. Straight up tell them that.
ssf4 has combo tutorials> maybe tekken can have advanced combo tutorials> will tell you whether you passed or failed> we are not talking about 5 combos but much more
First, I want to say that I enjoyed watching Tekken 6 at MLG this season and all the hard work that you put into making it a success at the expense of you not being able to compete, but it all worked out in the end so congratulations on being the official community manager.
I’m just interest in hearing whatever Soul Calibur related news that you can find out since mad people are trying to find out what’s good with some new Calibur, especially myself since I started the Facebook petition for it.
P.S. SC3 and SC4 aren’t perfect, but they are no way trash, but what the game needs is continued support from Namco so that the game stays on top.
What can you do, if anything to put more emphasis on getting TTT2 machines (as it is the next major tekken arcade release) out in more varied places around the US. I know I would love the chance to play this game in the arcade but it is nearly impossible to find a BR machine in the states. I understand this is difficult w/ the scene in US, but living in DC for example there is not a single machine w/ 200-300 miles…
can we get the original dark upper for armor king back> (one from tag)? armor does not feel complete without that particular version of du
a more consistent ws+2 into d/b+2 combo for paul bcz lots of times attempting d/b+2 after ws+2 completely messes up the combo. its hard enough to land ws+2 against an opponent.
also pauls d+1+2 sucks opponent in sometimes and does no damage.
bound capability after low parry?
deviljin with old ws+2 back
annas ss+3 should hit grounded opponents
heihachi’s d/b+2 and anna’s d/f+4 should not be launch punishable on block
bruce’s wall carry needs to be nerfed in some way> not balanced
deviljin’s wall carry that ends in ff+3~etc should have more reliable and more damaging results
christie’s old d+4 should be back
in contrast nina’s wall carry is at least difficult so is balanced
dss should hit zafina and ling, julia >< for law off of wall
nerf lars b+1 : safe, unsidesteppable, mid
lars d/f+2 needs to be punishable on block
animation for shining wizard,t-bone and f,hcf+1 grabs for king should be different
bryans’ b+4 should not result in jetupper on hit off wall>
let b+4 just stun but not be launch punishable
Here in south america have a few tournaments and a few releases.
But things is changing a little. For example, recently here in Rio de
Janeiro we had the BGS – Brazil Game Show (www.brasilgameshow.com.br) that
even had the presence of Hector Chances (Producer of Mortal Kombat) that
gave a demonstration of the new MK. I wish we had something of Tekken, but
had nothing. So you are planning something to fill those types of weaknesses?
heihachi already has d/f+1,2 which wall splats> either take out wall splat after 1,1,2 or give dev and kaz theirs back
I’d like to gather Christie & Eddy players’ ideas for Chreddy in TTT2.
What will be the best way to submit these ideas to the Tekken team? I expect them to at least take a look at these ideas.
i have a suggestion:what about when we get into rage we are inraged for only 5 seconds tops? SORT of like netsu powerup?
i know it was all you ~
why not have race car driver customizations for kaz, and nina>
Rich will be the perfect community leader for the namco fighting game community.
Felicitaciones hermno en nombre de toda la comunidad de jugadores de Venezuela
hello rich i was just wondering why dont we bring back forest law as a alternate costume for marshall in TTT2 and we can have full character themes like tekken 3 for all the characters in the game and have a option to select music for characters and stage themes and perhaps try bringing every tekken character in history in TTT2 and we can have new bonus online modes perhaps bring both tekken ball and tekken bowl with tekken ball we have a tag version mode of tekken ball basically if one players health is low you can call out your partner and have a fresh meter so basically this can be a tekken tag ball mode and we can have bonus modes from dark ressurection like tekken dojo and gold rush and we can receive dlc all the way through the next tekken thank you rich my life is all in your hands my tekken brother thank you^^
Filthie Fuckin Rich ~ Sex Machine!
