As you may have already noticed, we announced a new championship series known as Savanna Fight Night (SFN) on 29 May 2020 with a FT10 between two of Kenya's best players, Mickey and MM | Frost, which ended 10-4 in favour of the former (click here to watch the full set). The series was created as a replacement for the Hall of Pain (HoP), which remained largely inactive since it began in 2018.
Using a lineal ranking system modelled on those used in combat sport competitions such as the UFC, SFN was introduced to maintain a competitive spirit within and foster rivalries amongst players in the community, especially during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic that has affected nations the world over and forced players to take their scraps online. Registration was opened to players across the East African Community (Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, Rwanda, Burundi and South Sudan) on 1 June 2020.
The preliminary SFN rankings have been established based on each player's points-per-tournament (ppt) ratio on the TEKKEN 254 Circuit, with new players starting from the bottom of the leaderboard and establishing themselves within the lineal ranking system going forward. The preliminary rankings are as follows:
The fight card for SFN 1 will be finalised on Thursday, 11 June 2020, with challenges being issued until the end of day on Wednesday, 10 June 2020.
