Anakin has started an online Tekken League, similar to the ones found in professional sports. 24 of the East Coast's finest competitors will face each other through 5 weeks of regular season play. At the end, the best records will compete in a single elimination playoffs, where a champion will be crowned. With the help of Namco Bandai Games, Madcatz, Final Round Gaming, and Big E Gaming, The Iron Fist League (IFL) already has some great prizes going to the winner. The IFL airs on Arturo Sanchez's twitchtv stream every Tuesday starting at 8PM EST so if you're hungry for high level Tekken play, be sure to check that out!

Darn, maybe I should just go back to Korea and go back to my Korean Drama roles.
Maybe I should wrestle at ROH. If only Namco let go of trademark issues...
Guys, you all know we can still get welfare checks till the next game right?

Maybe because the people involved with the league, sent news tip regarding this event to Eventhubs & Shoryuken instead of TZ.

And I was busy organizing & promoting local events in my City....so I didn't write a piece on this league.

I'm really appreciating this. It sucks we have to deal with online with disconnection/lag, but it's still a huge step to improving Tekken players and enjoying the game. If we could some how take away the whole online problems, it would be a great Tekkenbusters minus a DJ, cool setting and some hot asians.

Maybe there will be another season of IFL, which I join when I return this mid year.

Regardless, I feel that this will be strengthening the community. I don't see you organizing anything.

Negativity is not needed, Dr. Slaw.

As part of this league... though I, too, dislike online Tekken... it's still turning out to be a great community event. It's keeping lots of people interested.

I say if Season 2 happens, we set up a way for people to select a group of players for their "team" like a fantasy league. That way viewers / nonparticipants can still feel like they're participating and have an interest in someone's win/loss. Just an idea. Doesn't have to involve money or anything like that... Maybe just the person who picked the best "team" gets a prize like the players do. Or choose who's going to come in 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 8th, 10th, etc etc. Choose the playoffs, blah blah blah. Whoever comes closest to the final rankings gets a prize.

Online is obviously way better than before, actually playable in fact. I feel a lot of the matches lack the throwing pressure but of course all these players are top notch and talk is cheap. Watching how top players play in actual matches is always awesome.

The best part is, when people lose 3-0, they get an epic picture edited in paint shop to humiliate them for their loss.

some players in this league don have enough skill to show 'high level tekken' lol.

I would rather go and watch 'death match' from Korea.

One of the best ideas to come along in a while.The traditional tourney format has been done to death so it's always refreshing to see people try something new and different for a change. Great job Hoa! Those 3-0 pics had me rolling.

I agree with and support this idea completely, except
it would be cool to actually have a team
kinda like tekken crash style
but maybe that's just me
