If you're serious about Tekken Tag Tournament 2 and you live on the East Coast you'll be very happy to hear about some new developments coming from the organizers of Final Round, ECT and NEC. ShinBlanka announced he is rolling out a Tekken Tag Tournament 2 East Coast circuit with the help of Big E and Sweet Johnny Cage. The circuit will provide travel and accommodations to the East Coast's biggest tournaments for those who win at various events over the course of the next year leading up to EVO.
Hit the jump to read up on the full details courtesy of the Final Round website.
The east coast is a huge place when you really think about it. Not everyone is able to travel up and down from Pennsylvania to Georgia then back up to New Jersey, especially if they come from states nowhere near the
se three. That's why we want to reward our winners with not only the prize money they've earned, but with the opportunity to go to a part of the country they may not have been able to see and compete in before.
The rules to this tournament circuit are simple. If you win the TEKKEN TAG TOURNAMENT 2 tournament at Northeast Championships 13 in Philadelphia, then you will be awarded a plane ticket to FINAL ROUND XVI. If you win FINAL ROUND XVI, you will be flown to East Coast Throwdown 5. If you win ECT5, you will be flown to Evolution in Vegas. Following NorthEast Championships The following TOP 8 at each event will be seeded for the following tournament and the rest of the entries will be seeded by region at Final Round XVI and for East Coast Throwdown 5. This promotes people to attend more than one event to make sure they are properly seeded in this circuit. Here's the following point system as listed below;
1st place 10 points
2nd place 7 points
3rd place 5 points
4th place 3 points
5th place 2 points
7th place 1 point
If you're local to any of these tournaments that you've won a trip to, we will pay for your hotel room instead of the flight. The four of us from Big E Gaming, FINAL ROUND LLC, and East Coast Throwdown want to make sure TTT2 is the most memorable TEKKEN for you guys yet, and what better way than to fly you around the country to represent your home turf?!
P.S.- Before you assume anything we at FINAL ROUND LLC, BigE Gaming, or ECT don't know what the official games will be for Evo2k13. We are offering these trip's to help the community travel to 4 great events in the fighting game community.
