Red Bull Strijders 2021 – Tekken Format
The format for this Tekken tournament follows a pretty typical style. 32 players are to be randomly put into the double-elimination bracket. The Tekken tournament has a small twist to it, as its first qualifier will be prioritizing PC players, whereas the second qualifier will be for PS4 players. The top 4 players from each qualifier will advance on to the final stage of the tournament. Here they will take on each other in a single-elimination format, all played on a PS4 platform at GMR’s studio.
Very important to keep in mind is that all participants are responsible for uploading their scores to the appropriate section on GMR’s website.
For the Red Bull Strijders Tekken event, GMR have put up a total of €250 to be won as prize money. The winner of the Finals will take €200, whereas the runner-up will take the €50.
