Think you can beat a Tekken god in style? Here’s the best way to do it.
Red Bull Golden Letters is a two-day Tekken 7 LAN event that will see grassroots United Kingdom and European players compete for a chance to battle the top Tekken pros in the world, but with a unique twist.
Red Bull Golden Letters uses a unique match format that puts an emphasis on clutch plays displaying Tekken’s illustrious golden letters. Players who manage to achieve three “perfect” or “great” rounds automatically win the entire best-of-five set.
Perfect rounds can only be achieved if a player defeats their opponent without taking damage, while great rounds are given when a player defeats their opponent with a sliver of health left.
Format of Red Bull Golden Letters
The main tournament event will feature a 96-player open qualifier on the first day, with only four players being invited to the championship on day two. Four world-class pros — including Red Bull’s Arslan “Arslan Ash” Siddique and Hoa “Anakin” Luu — will be invited to complete the top 8 bracket.
Red Bull will also hold side events such as “Beat The Pro” — an opportunity for aspiring players to go head-to-head against Anakin and Arslan Ash — and “Europe Vs The World Clash” — a 5v5 special exhibition that features the two aforementioned Red Bull players as well as other well-known pros.
