The recently concluded Tekken World Tour 2022 saw 24 players face off, some qualifying directly from the Regional Finals and others from the Last Chance Qualifiers. This was the first Tekken World Tour in three years and may be one of the final offline tournaments for Tekken 7.
The grand prize for the Tekken World Tour 2022 was $100,000, with the champion, Atif Butt, taking home $50,000. In the final showdown, Butt faced JeonDDing and dominated the match, securing his victory and maintaining his unblemished record in the tournament.
Atif Butt emerged as a top contender in the Tekken World Tour 2022, with an impressive record of victories throughout the tournament. He topped his group during the preliminary stage, earning him a spot in the Finals Bracket.
