MLG has recently announced that Tekken 6 : Bloodline Rebellion has been added onto the season roster. The MLG has also added me onto their team and hired me to organize and coordinate the tournaments for this season as Tekken 6’s Tournament Director/Coordinator. I have gladly passed up the opportunity to participate in this tournament to put in work and deliver the most promising tournament and exposure our community has been waiting for.
As a community we have to let go of what has happened between the MLG and the tekken community. I will do my best to learn from previous mistakes and bring something to the table which has not been put on the mainstream. So let me secure you with the following details which will help you feel secure about investing in the 2010 MLG Season.
We all know that the main thing in tournaments that affect us is the Monitors used for these tournaments. There is absolutely no sense in getting in too deep about the situation because we can all go for days just talking and complaining about how tournaments would have been 10 times better if they used the proper equipment. Instead I will be requesting the EXACT monitor which will be provided for the tournament and do a test along with players to really break down the lag issue and to avoid “laggy” tournaments. If i even smell a tiny bit of lag , I will do EVERYTHING in my power to provide us with what we need.
Everything will be on a tight schedule. Players and staff will coordinate to follow a neatly arranged schedule to expedite the tournament process. This tournament will be a test of true skill and will completely determine how to good a player is, and not how much sleep/rest they got, or how many energy drinks they go through.
**EDIT Rules have been posted .
I feel that these rules will truly determine who is the best. There are no excuses this time around, so practicex10.
The MLG has been established for long enough for us to trust them with this issue. Please check out the listings for the prize pool. (Dont drool on the keyboard)

Players may not use a controller that has been modified to include a Turbo button and Players may not map more than one action to a single button. Players are allowed to make cosmetic changes to their controller, however, Major League Gaming reserves the right to deny the use of any controller suspected of providing an unfair competitive advantage.

TEKKEN 6 | 1v1
Regular Season Competitions - Tekken 6 1v1 Event
- Events will have an Open Bracket only. Open Brackets will be separated into a Winners Bracket, containing Players without a Match loss, and a Losers Bracket, containing Players with a Match loss.
- Open Brackets will support as many as 128 Players.
- Open Brackets will be Best of 5 Game Match, Double Elimination Brackets.
- After losing a Match in the Winners Bracket, Players will enter the Losers Bracket.
- A Match loss in the Losers Bracket will result in elimination from the Event.
- If multiple Players, finishing the Event ranked in the top 16, are eliminated via the same Losers Bracket Round, they will be scheduled to play one, two, or three Consolation Matches in order to determine their exact 5th-16th Ranking. If the Players who win one and lose one Consolation Match havent played a Consolation Match against each other, they will play each other in a Consolation Match in order to break the tie. These tiebreaking Consolation Matches only apply to Players who lose in the same Losers Bracket Round. Consolation Matches will be scheduled to begin immediately after a Player is eliminated from the Event.
- Players will be seeded using the following criteria, in this order: Tekken 6 Pro Circuit Rank Points and Tekken 6 Online Qualifier Rank Points. Ties will be broken using the next available criterion, or randomly if necessary. Players with no Tekken 6 Rank Points will be seeded randomly. No Players will have Tekken 6 Rank Points to seed the 1v1 Event until the 2nd Pro Circuit Competition.
- If Players are scheduled to play each other for a 2nd time in an Open Bracket, their Match will expand to a Best of 11, include the previous Match, and pick up where that Match left off. For example, if Player A beat Player B 3 Games to 0 in the Winners Bracket, the Best of 11 will resume with Game 4 and Player A leading 3 Games to 0. When the Match is resumed, the winner of the Winners Bracket Match must use the Character that they used in the last Game of that Match. The loser of the Winners Bracket Match will be allowed to select a new Character.
- If the Players scheduled to play each other in the Finals have not yet played against each other in the Open Bracket, an initial Match must be played. If the Player who came from the Winners Bracket wins the initial Match, they will win the Event. If the Player who came from the Losers Bracket wins the Match, a tiebreaking Match must be played. The winner of a tiebreaking Match will win the Event.
- The top 48 Players in each Event will receive Tekken 6 Pro Circuit Rank Points.
- The top 16 Players, determined by Tekken 6 Pro Circuit Rank Points immediately following each Pro Circuit Competition, starting after the second 2010 Pro Circuit Competition, will earn Pro Status. Ties will be broken by each Players Ranking in the most recent Event.
