Seeing as how the Pakistani fighting game community shot to fame with the likes of Arslan “Arslan Ash” Siddique and Awais “Awais Honey” Iftikhar, Bandai has introduced the FATE Masters in Amman, Jordan and the Takra Cup in Rawalpindi, Pakistan as easy-access tournaments for them.
Here’s a list of the new locations:

Bandai also announced that the final stop of the tour, the Tekken World Finals, will take place in New Orleans on December 12-13, a month after the last Master stop, Dreamhack Atlanta.
Dojos and points
TWT 2020 will still have the same point system as TWT2019, giving a fair amount of points throughout the different tournament tiers.
For Tekken’s most frequent tournament goers, Bandai has placed a cap on your points, only taking your best four Master runs, four Challenger runs, and three Dojo runs for your final ranking.
If you’re interested in signing for any of these tournaments or even adding your own dojo stop to the TWT2020, you can visit the official site here.
