The Tekken World Tour 2023 Finals have come to a thrilling close, with Pakistani Tekken prodigy Arslan Ash claiming victory once again. This tournament marks the final chapter in Tekken 7’s offline competitive scene.
Arslan’s tournament victory marks the completion of his prestigious treble for this season: EVO Japan 2023, EVO USA 2023, and now, TWT 2023. With this win, it’s safe to say that Arslan, despite his late 2019 arrival to the competitive scene, has never faltered. In just four years, he has undeniably established himself as the undisputed king of Tekken 7, evident by his consistent victories.
At TWT 2023, Arslan Ash remained undefeated throughout the tournament, finishing with a record of 7-0 and a Set Win percentage of 100%. After dominating the Group Stages, he went on to defeat LowHigh 2-1 in the winner’s semi-final, moving to the Winner’s Finals, where he met Ulsan and after an intense 5-round clash, Arslan won 3-2 and clawed through to the Grand Final, where he dominated CherryBerryMango to clinch home the title.
After Pakistan’s Atif Butt won TWT last year, Arslan is now the 2nd Pakistani Tekken player to bring home the title.
Arslan’s dominance in Tekken 7 is undeniable, with four EVO championships under his belt. He has also dominated at events like Community Effort Orlando (CEO) 2021, VSFighting 2022, IESF 2022, and Combo Breaker 2022.
That’s only the solo achievements, but Arslan’s leadership helped Pakistan win the Gamers8 Nations Cup 2023, solidifying his position as a pillar of the Pakistani fighting game community. His achievements have brought international recognition to both himself and the country’s growing esports scene.
