DR had a good run... played it for many years.. lots of combos you can get away with and some juggles you couldn't do online.. i remember biting alot of bullets for lag compensation at the time. but ppl still played regardless of the "Early years lag"

That's not a huge loss to me tbh, TR is a bad Tekken game imo. While T5DR is my favorite Tekken Game ever, but the netcode is really bad tbh, so that's not a huge loss imo, and the game will still be playable offline so. But sur Eliza fans will suffer from this lol

Something sick that Namco could do one day, is putting all main Tekken games in one disk on a remastered version with a new and updated netcode. Just think about playing Tekken 4 with a strong and solid online netcode, hell that would be pure kreygasm. I mean not necessarily now cause T7 is supposed to come soon, but for example the day they'll announce Tekken 8, that would be so cool like a Tekken anniversary edition to make the transition.

Yeah i know, will never happen with the real Nandai Bambdai, right. lol

I hope it is.

TR honestly is my least played Tekken ever. I won't miss it. I did forget DR had a console release though. The PSP version eat up alot of my playtime.

They're shutting down the online component of T5DR. You'll still be able to play it offline!

Online was basically dead anyway -- I couldn't get any matches last couple of times I tried :-(

But DR is super dope for sure. Now we'll just have to have people over in person to play it!

I just got a PS3 near the beginning of this December and, being the Tekken fan I am, got Revolution and bought DR Online (I don't have the PSP version cuz no PSP but I would get it if I had one). I played Revolution online probably 14+ hours in a month. I sadly couldn't find anyone online for DR so I never got that online experience, although I am still glad I bought it. I played it a good amount of time alone and with family too. Its game play is more fun IMO than the PS2 5. What would be really cool is if people made them both playable through custom servers like several ps2 games have had done to them. Hopefully 7 will have total conversion mods to make the older games playable on PC.
Signature I own Tekken 1-3 on PSX, Tekken 4-5 and Tag on PS2, Tekken 5DR and 6 on PS3, Tekken 6 and Tag 2 on XBox360, and Prime Edition on 3DS.

Yeah I can still play it, but since there will be no more online component, that means it's hard for me to find people to play DR, especially kentucky suck as far as FGC goes

After writing that I couldn't find anyone and never played it online, I went and found one dude online. Maybe those three matches we played will be the only ones I'll play of DR...

It must be a regional thing because I have never been able to find people playing DR online. I have more luck finding people who play SCIIHD and SCIV. It is still a fantastic game and being able to play it offline is fine by me.

My biggest disappointment about TR is that Heihachi, True Ogre, and Jinpachi were never playable. I was not a big fan of the stat system or the invincible moves. Nor was I enthused about the character unlocking system which didn't give people a choice who they could unlock. TR being accessible to so many people meant a lot more people lagged. This game ending is no great loss, but it is unfortunate for anyone who liked Eliza and her gag boobs.
Signature The danger's real enough. Let's not imagine it where it doesn't exist.

So Tekken Revolution is finally ending.
Tekken Zaibatsu has been so sad to read this last 2 years... with that insult of a game dissapearing, we finally got some real good news!
Still a mixed blessing. DR is a good game, it doesn't deserve to even appear in the same title along that other crap.
