Top Korean Tekken Players JDCR & Saint Returns to Peru for Collision 2017
It’s time to even out the score! JDCR & Saint will be returning to Peru for Collision 2017!
The Tekken scene may be heavily dominated by Japanese and Korean players, but there are legends that are born in the other parts of the world as well.
Every Tekken player has probably heard the stories that speak of the mighty defenders of the Peru Tekken community. In 2015, top Korean tekken player JDCR was invited to Peru for a tournament but was unfortunately denied the top spot by local players Sapito and Abel del Maestro. JDCR later released a statement about his Peru trip saying that the competing conditions at the time were very unfavorable. He had complaints about the way he was treated during his stay as well as the quality of the tournament itself which made the event highly controversial in the international Tekken community. A year later however, another top Korean Tekken player Saint was invited to Peru for Collision 2016 and was met with the same fate against local player Sapito.
This year, they’re coming back for revenge. Saint and JDCR will be attending Collision 2017 on February 18-19. The event will be the biggest Tekken event yet in their region and will feature three Tekken games: Tekken Tag Tournament 1, Tekken Tag Tournament 2, and Tekken 7. Tekken series producers Katsuhiro Harada and Michael Murray will be attending the event along with Tekken community manager Mark Julio.
