No More Online Tournaments

In a bold move, all official Tekken World Tour 2024 events will be offline only.

There will be no online tournaments or qualifiers this year.

This returns the competition to its roots with live crowd energy and in-person camaraderie.

Introducing Local Dojo Events

With top esports play often requiring big sponsorships, Tekken wants to support rising talent.

New Dojo events are being added that any tournament organizer can submit to host locally.

Players can earn extra points by competing in Dojos to climb in both regional and global leaderboards.

Dual Qualification Formats – Global vs Regional

Past Tekken World Tours only had one route to the global finals – the overall Global leaderboard.

Top players from the Global leaderboard (combined from Master +, Master, Challenger, and Dojo events) used to qualify for the finals.

But now, a second path is added for regional warriors.

The #1 player from each region’s Dojo events will also qualify for the finals.
