Tekken World Tour Points Structure

This year's Tekken World Tour will eliminate the regional barriers of last year's event where players can only earn points in their own region. This means that players who participate and wins in any official event will not only get the prize but also the allotted points for that specific event which will be tallied to the tour's official Global Leaderboard.
