Tekken World Tour standings (August 1, 2017): JDCR and Anakin leading their regions
The Tekken World Tour hasn’t been updated, but here’s what we know so far.
The Tekken World Tour kicked off mid-June at CEO 2017, and several events have taken place since then. There has been Thaiger Uppercut, REV Major Philippines, EVO, DreamHack Atlanta and more. Unfortunately, no-one has been keep the standings up to date. If you have been participating in the Tekken World Tour, you’d certainly like to know where you and others stand. This helps you determine several things – like which events you can make, which players should be looking to usurp, and more.
Quite a few pro players and community figures have expressed feelings one way or another about how the standings have been handled, as well as how events, rulings and points work.
Uh…so when are they gonna update the TWT standings again?

I feel like the Tekken World Tour isn't getting much awareness on how the events/rulings/points works
Maybe a Tekken Talk episode on it?

Which essentially means there's no standings for Europe again weirdly enough.

I don't want to sound like I'm nagging but can someone fix what's going on with Asian and European TWT leaderboard standings?

I reached out to Mark ‘MarkMan’ Julio to see if he could shed any light on the standings being updated.
The @TwitchEsports team handles the website and updates for TWT. It'll be updated once they're ready. Apologies for the delay!

Why isn’t Twitch Esports updating the Tekken World Tour website? Who knows. There doesn’t seem to be an urgency or seriousness surrounding it. Someone from Bandai Namco should probably look into it and make sure they keep it up to date.
Tekken World Tour Standings
All is not lost though. A few people in the community have been doing some research and tallied up what the standings and points should currently be. These are for Asia-Pacific and Americas only so far.
These standings are for the Asia-Pacific region. Someone tallied them up and contact Shudy Jinlee with them, and then he shared them on Twitter. The following also includes Abuget Cup 2017, which finalized yesterday.
Current UK Tekken 7 Champion, Kane ‘Kaneandtrench’ Hartfield, also did some “homework” and was able to determine what the current standings should be for the Americas.
Here are the supposed standings after CEO and DreamHack.
Still, standings should come from an official source, which is the Tekken World Tour website. Hopefully a fire can be lit under Twitch Esports and someone will make sure they are updated immediately after each TWT event.
