5v5 Mayhem: Tekken 8 Event

5v5 Mayhem Tekken 8 Event

Hey there, everyone! Haris here, and I’ve got something super exciting to share with you. If you’ve been following my journey, you know that I’ve organized a ton of tech events over the years. From developer meetups to massive conferences, my life has been a whirlwind of planning and executing events.

But today, I want to talk about something a bit different – my latest adventure in the world of esports: the “5v5 Mayhem” Tekken 8 event.

So, how did I find myself knee-deep in the world of Tekken 8 and esports? As some of you know, I’ve been working as an Esports Consultant at Bramerz Digital, where my past experience with competitive gaming has been coming in handy.

Esports is a whole new field compared to tech events, but the excitement and the community spirit are just as exhilarating.

5v5 Mayhem

The idea for “5v5 Mayhem” came about as a way to hype up our upcoming big event, “Khan Imran’s Power Crusher 1.0”.

We wanted something that would not only showcase the incredible talent of Pakistani Tekken players but also get the community buzzing. And buzz it did!

We held the event on June 15, 2024, at the Bramerz Digital office, and the energy was off the charts.

Planning the Event

Organizing this event was no small feat. Imagine trying to coordinate ten of the top Tekken players in Pakistan, including legends like Arslan Ash, Fate Khan, The Jon, Qasim Meer, and Dawood Sikandar. The format was intense – a first-to-35 match setup, where each player had seven lives. It was like a battle royale of epic proportions!

But it wasn’t just about the players. We wanted to create an experience for the fans too. We had live commentary from IGN Pakistan’s Buntoo Cage, Sikky, and NT01, and the whole event was streamed live, racking up thousands of real-time views.

The feedback from fans was phenomenal, which made all the hard work worth it.

Recap

There were so many standout moments, but a few really stole the show. Fate Nouman Chaudry’s seven-win streak had everyone on the edge of their seats, and seeing Arslan Ash dominate with Alisa was a treat.

But the ultimate highlight was Hafiz Tanveer’s clutch win as Claudio, securing victory for Team Khan. The room erupted – it was pure esports magic.

Bringing the Community Together

One of the things I love most about organizing events is the sense of community it promotes. Whether it’s a developer meetup or an esports tournament, bringing people together to share their passion is incredibly rewarding.

With “5v5 Mayhem”, we tapped into the vibrant Pakistani gaming community, and the response was heartwarming. The support, the excitement, and the friendships were all notable!

What’s Next?

While “5v5 Mayhem” was a blast, it was just the beginning. We’re now gearing up for “Khan Imran’s Power Crusher 1.0”, a massive Dojo event for Tekken 8 happening on July 5-6, 2024.

This one’s going to be even bigger, with over 100 players and a prize pool of Rs. 200,000. Plus, it’s part of the Tekken World Tour leaderboard, so the stakes are sky-high!


Organizing “5v5 Mayhem” was a crazy, exciting, and incredibly fulfilling experience. It’s different from the tech events I’m used to, but at the core, it’s all about bringing people together and celebrating their passions. Whether it’s coding or gaming, I love being a part of these communities and helping them thrive.

Thanks for reading, and if you’re into Tekken or just curious about the world of esports, stay tuned for more updates on “Khan Imran’s Power Crusher 1.0”. It’s going to be epic!

Catch you later,
Haris
