there is going to be a tekken tournament in France
Tekken 5.0: BT2 Tournament
Tekken 5 DR: Freeplay. Well, there could be some DR since kamuijin already has a PS3 and is waiting to see if he can DL DR in January! Nothing's really sure, though. I guess we'll see. Also, if you have a PS3 and the game, feel free to bring it, thanks!
Tekken Tag Tournament (Arcade version): Freeplay. The thing is that we have this PCB and then, we connected it to some Supergun and Neo Geo to PS2 adapters. Meaning you will actually be able to play it with your PS2 pad/stick. Slight problem: you will have to press Select to start a game, and Start to Tag! But it's not so bad, and this could well be the first time you'll ever play Arcade TTT with your pad!
Bring you own pad, stick, Memory Card

BT Vol. 2
- US version
- Leagues and Double Elimination
- Leagues: first to 2, then first to 3 during DE (LB & WB) except for Finals (LB & WB): first to 5
- Regular settings (100% lifebar, ...). First to 3 rounds. Random stage
- Brackets: first to 2 (LB & WB) except for Finals (LB & WB): first to 3
Well, if you do not make it to the BT2 regular brackets, you will be placed in this BT Consolation brackets, and will also have the chance to win there!
OK, now let me introduce you to this special event (took place two times earlier and was won by Genius both times). BT is a tournament where you have to be the best with your favourite character. It is supposed to show who is the best Steve, the best Law, the best Marduk, ...
Each group is a character based tourney, so there is a maximum of 29 groups. Depending of the number of players there at BT2, you will have to choose 2 or 3 characters (so you will enter 2 or 3 groups). A group tourney has to have a minimum of 3 players to take place. If the Yoshi group has only 2 players, the group tourney can't take place. Depending of the number of players in each group:
- 3, 4 or 5 players: Round Robin (all players meet)
- 6 players: 2 groups of 3 and then both Winners meet.
- 7 players: one group of 3 players, and one group of 4 players.
- 8 players: 2 groups of 4 players.
Each Winner from each group tourney goes to BT2 brackets. There will be 29 different players in the brackets (so all 29 Tekken characters). If Player A wins both the Steve and Yoshi tourneys, he has to choose if he wants to play in the brackets using Steve or Yoshi. Let's say he chooses Yoshi: the 2nd placer from the Steve tourney will go to the BT2 brackets, ...
Each player who doesn't go to the BT2 regular brackets goes to the BT Consolation brackets, using his favourite character. You can have the same character more than one time in these brackets.
OK, it looks complicated, but it isn't! And it's a fun tourney, so don't bother so much. But you still have to be the best with your character to go to the BT2 regular brackets, though!
First 3 placers from both brackets will win the BT2 Special Edition DVD! It's not so good but also no so bad.
Where does it take place?
