The Sajam Tekken Slam will gather 24 high profile streamers to compete in a team tournament in Tekken 8, along with 6 celebrity coaches which include the likes of Justin Wong and PhiDX.

Each pro coach will hope to lead their team to victory, but should a decider be required then the coaches will enter the stage. Here's everything we know about the tournament so far, including the teams which were revealed on March 1.

When is Sajam Tekken Slam?

Sajam Tekken Slam will take place on March 8 and 10. The group stage on March 8 will be used to seed the teams, with the final tournament then taking place on March 10.

  • March 4-10: Training period
  • March 8: Group Stage (seeding round)
  • March 10: Team Tournament

Format explained

Sajam Tekken Slam will follow a team battle format with four players on each team. The unique twist is the newest or most inexperienced player on each team will play each other first, then the second most experienced will play and so on. The first team to 3 wins is victorious.

According to Sajam the most experienced player on each team is either Purple or Blue Rank, which puts them between Fujin and Bushin. However, should a team lose their opening three matches, they have lost the series and their strongest player won't get to play! Should a team be tied at 2-2, then the teams' coaches will battle for the decider.

How to watch Sajam Tekken Slam?

The Sajam Tekken Slam will be broadcast on Sajam's Twitch stream. Competing players and coaches will also stream on their own personal channels.

How were the teams decided?

The criteria for building each team according to Sajam himself was:

  • Good vibes
  • People who knew each other (coaches & players)
  • Skill (to make teams equal)

Definitely an event to keep an eye out for if you're a Tekken 8 fan. Who wouldn't want to see former LoL Dignitas team-mates Scarra and imaqtpie go head-to-head in Tekken 8?
