RTFM @Kaneandtrench wins the Tekken 7 UK Championship!
Over at the United Kingdom, sixteen of the world’s best Tekken 7 players converged at the London Comic Con to participate in the finale of the Tekken 7 UK Championship, where only the best of the best would qualify at five events throughout the UK and Ireland! For hours, competitors fell by the wayside while others maintained their fighting spirit without tiring.
Moments ago, our champion was crowned after narrowly losing the first set in Grand Finals, thereby causing a bracket reset. We’d like to congratulate RTFM Kaneandtrench for becoming the Tekken 7 UK Champion!
