Tekken254 Season Three review

The Tekken254 Circuit came to a close a few weekends ago. The finals held at the Junction Mall saw AlphaPlay| Mickey being crowned season 3 champ after taking down Simba Ultimate player DarkTempest in a one sided final. Mickey has cemented himself as the best player in the Kenyan region and has not shown any sign of slowing down anytime soon.

The Circuit saw major changes to its format with increased Qualifiers that run from January and ended in July to capping the premier division to only 24 players and introducing an amateur division that has helped many new players have ease of entry plus gain extra knowledge from the senior players that have played since 2017 tournament. The Tekken254 Circuit organizers are set to make few changes to the circuit that will be communicated later. Partnering with Ace Apparels, we take a look back at this year’s Qualifier Tournaments.

The Circuit qualifiers were heavily dominated and bodied by the trio of Mickey, Frost and DVK who are all signed to different organizations basing their operations in the developing Esports scene in Nairobi.

The circuit qualifiers were aimed at creating a highly competitive series that had players compete for a top16 finish by the end of the July. The qualifiers also helped many players increase practice and share a lot of mechanics of the game with each other.

CIRCUIT FINALS

After Q6, all roads went to the Junction Mall for the Circuit Finals where surprise performances were witnessed from DarkTempest storming the finals, DVK finishing 9th place, RobbyM$ great performance and not forgetting Masters of Mayhem player Frost.

The circuit finals had AlphaPlay organization player Mickey “obviously” take the season three championship after handing Simba Ultimate player DarkTempest a beating in the final. Masters of Mayhem finished third place.

All eyes are currently on the TWT African expansion tournament set to be held in Cape Town next month. We wish all the Kenyan players set to fly down south all the best. Victory awaits you.
