Tekken World Tour 2022 features a few different types of events for players to earn points and help climb the leaderboards, including both online and in-person options.

Dojo Events can be done offline or online and are open to players all around the world, though the tournaments themselves are region-locked. For these events, the number of points depends on the size of the tournament.

There are also Dojo Prime Events, which are the next level of Dojo Events, this time being officially supported by Tekken World Tour. Unlike the regular Dojo Events, Dojo Prime Event point amounts are not based on the number of competitors. Those wanting their event to be classified as a Prime Event will have to apply.

Lastly are the premiere events, which are the Master and Master Prime Events. These are held all around the world on certain dates and will provide you with even more points on the regional leaderboard. The Master Events will be held at the following locations:

  • CEO (Daytona Beach, FL) – June 24– 26, 2022
  • EVO (Las Vegas, NV) – August 5– 7, 2022
  • VSFighting (Birmingham, UK) – August 19 – 21, 2022
  • RevMajor (Manila, Philippines) – September 17 – 18, 2022
  • The Mix Up (Lyon, France) – October 1 & 2, 2022

The EVO event will be the only one considered a Master Prime Event as well, though no specific details were given about that one. These various events will cause the regional leaderboards to shift and players will be ranked based on their single best performance in an offline Masters as well as their four best performances at Dojo Events.
