So I've recently picked up Tekken 6 and was directed to this site. I'm garbage at Tekken but plan on attending a competition during January and would like to at least put up a decent fight, so would appreciate if some of you guys could show me the ropes to the 'competitive' side of life. Thanks in advance.

Check out the latest Game Console Magazine Fluxcore has a few tips in there worth reading for someone starting out......

Come down to Timezone Queen Street.
Some of the best players in New Zealand play down there.

Phwoar... crash course in the Tekken!

I'm going to assume that not only are you new to Tekken, but new to fighting games?

Now, these tips will not work 100% high end competition level, but you will beat the mashers!

First up, learn the see saw fight.  Just throw a string (sequence of commands that perform a pre-programmed combo in Tekken), if it hits, throw another one, if they block, then block cause they will throw a string back at you.  It's called a see saw, cause at entry level, that's what happens, one guy throws a string, the other blocks, then you switch and do it the other way.

Obviously, this will be quite boring, so then you mix it up!  The most basic mixup, is the throw!  So after a couple of blocked strings, and instead of returning with another string, whip out the throw!

Congratulations, you've just levelled up!

So you've learnt the see saw, the throw mixup, now go learn some juggles.  You'll have to google/youtube some basic combos.  Tekken Zaibatsu forums is a good place to start.  You'll want to read the notation guide as well, cause they will say random stuff like, b,f+2,3, 4,1,2, 1,1~2 b! 1,2,3, 3+4

Notice how some of those numbers have space after the comma, some don't, yeah, that shit matters, read a Tekken notation guide.

So you've got the see saw game, the throw mixup, some combos, now you add those combo's to a mixup.  Sometimes you throw, sometimes you launch, sometimes you do a low/sweep.

That should be more than enough to get you started.  Again, this will give you a step above the absolute beginners.  You might still get mashed out without knowing character specific strings/moves.  You'll get interrupted heaps by peeps that know character specific strings/moves.  But at least you got the basics sussed 

Once you're this far, progression comes from experience, reading more in-depth character specific stuff, more experience, Tekken specific stuff, and even more experience.

GOOD LUCK!

What is your tekken and fighting game experience so far??


What character do you play?

Pinolicious wrote out the common notation for tekken eg 1,1,2

numbers are used instead of words so 1=left punch 2= right punch 3=left kick 4= right kick

so when you see d/f+2, 1, b+3 its a combo where you hit
down forward + right punch followed by a standing (neutra)l left punch, then back and left kick

Cheers for the lengthy an in-depth reply. I'm really only generally aiming to beat the 'mashers' because there isn't enough time for me to really become decent at the game in such a short space of time, so those tips are really helpful.

Thanks for the explanation of the number system, I was wondering about that while browsing the net for combos etc. In regards to my previous Tekken/Fighting game experience... I played Tekken 1/2/3 on the PS1 and a little bit of SF (Can't remember what version sorry) on the original xbox but that is about it, all this was purely for social purposes so I would still definitely consider myself a 'masher' at this present point. I don't have a particular character that I play with yet because I'm still trying to suss out which few I prefer since there has been a massive increase of characters in Tekken since I last played it.

Oh and I don't have one of those pads either, so I'm just going to have to be a controller hero this time around unless I can borrow one. Once again, thanks for the replies so far guys.

Well I think the easiest thing to do is find one of those FAQs which tell you all the basics of the game, such as tech rolling, dashing, etc. After you got a grasp of that pick a character you'd like to learn. Then go on tekkenzaibatsu.com and look in that character's specific forum for their good combos, pokes, etc. Hit the training mode until you're consistent with all of that then maybe try your hand at some matches with people.

This series called level up your game is very good imo and it starts right from the basics. Might pay to have a watch.



And if you wanna see how intense your character can be played try looking for some Japanese/Korean tournament replays online. I generally just youtube something like "Japan tournament Alisa" though others can probably give you some sites or better ways to search. I'm not the best to give advice though cause I don't even really play the game.

Want to beat the mashers eh?

Ok, a lot of mashers like to use the capo's (Christie/Eddy aka Chreddy).  I know, cause I play Christie, and people call me a masher all the time!

Anyway, normally when you mash with chreddy, she starts off with the flares.  Just block low, they get put into a stun, and you do a launcher.  Whatever character you decide to use, they should have some sort of ws (while standing) launcher, even if it's just a hop kick.  And you get your free combo from that launcher!

Again with mashers, just stay back, let them mash and try to interrupt their string with a launcher, even if it's just a hop kick.

If you play aganist noob mishima's with hell sweeps (heihachi, kazuya, devil jin), they like to spam that hell sweep, so again block low, put's them in block stun, free launcher.  I consider noob mishima's a level above masher, cause they actually know how to hell sweep.

Against noob law, watch for dragon tail, which again is another sweep, again if you blow low, you get free launch.

True players will mixup their high/lows, noobs will always go for the sweeps, cause it takes out other noobs.

This is Tekken 101, a really good guide for the basics and what your options are in certain situations. It may seem waaaay too deep when you're starting out, but just pick one thing at a time and work on it in your matches, see how it goes, read it again and see if you understand it. If not, keep going, or pick another thing to concentrate on. Soon enough it'll all click :)

Going back to my first post, about the basic see-saw match up, another great mixup option instead of blocking is to sidestep walk (unless you're chreddy, fucking capo dance step!).

throw out quick poke/string (something with a small recovery if blocked) then side step walk they're poke string and BAM!  free launcher

Also if somebody is spamming a quick poke string/mashing and you're feeling pressured, whip out a crouching left punch (d+1) to stop them in their tracks and reset the situation!

A lot of the stuff I talk about is all low level gameplay and some have situational uses in high end play.

I'm on xbl but it's torture to play on... And it basically require a differnt set of strategies to abuse the lag, so playing at Timezone would be way more betterer. And besides if history's anything to go by, TTT2 will be out in the arcades for a year or so before the console release.

Aaaah damn. Thanks for the heads up bro. Guess I'm going to be playing at TZ
