Arc System Works reveals more details about ArcRevo World Tour

Arc System Works has announced the guidelines of the ArcRevo World Tour, showing players how they can earn a spot at the ArcRevo World Finals in the U.S. in 2019.

These methods will affect all three games played during the world tour, including BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle, Guilty Gear Xrd: Rev2 and BlazBlue: Central Fiction.

The first way is straight forward: win one of the ArcRevo qualifiers. So far, 10 events—Evo, Frosty Faustings, CEO and Texas Showdown in the U.S.; Revolution, Brussels Challenge and Headstomper in Europe; ArcRevo Japan and Evo Japan; and South East Asia Major—have been named with Revolution on Sept. 28-30, 2018, being the first event on the tour.

The other ways is to earn points by placing in the top eight at ArcRevo qualifiers. At the end of the tour, the top point-earning player in each region—North and Latin America, Europe, Japan and Asia—will be invited to ArcRevo finals.

Between these two methods, 14 players will be invited, which leaves two spots undecided. It is currently unknown whether those last two spots are simply events that have not yet been announced, or if they will be determined in some other fashion.

For complete details of the tour's format, including the breakdown of points earned at each event, readers can check out the official Arc System Works website.

Tekken 7 receives version 2.01 patch to fix various move bugs

Bandai Namco Entertainment shipped out a patch to the recently updated Tekken 7 alleviating some issues that were of concern.

For PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC, patch version 2.01 fixed move bugs from a variety of characters since the release of version 2.00 and the Season 2 content update last week. Users on PS4 and PC can update their game now while XB1 users will have to wait until Sept. 12, 2018.

One of the adjustments include fixing Bryan's taunt tracking, previously unable to hit those who quick roll left of him. Another change is Lars' f+2,1 to Silent Entry, 1 string losing its natural combo property, which originally gave him extremely high combo damage potential especially at walls.

Some of these fixes were from player reports using the Twitter hashtag #tekken7_season2_report with those from the Tekken Project team monitoring the feedback.

You can check out the patch notes officially provided by Tekken Project lead Katsuhiro Harada here.
