Tekken Tag Tournament 2 World Tekken Federation services coming to an end on September 1 - Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3

Posted by Steven 'Dreamking23' Chavez • August 2, 2013 at 9:55 a.m. PDT
Tekken Tag Tournament 2 World Tekken Federation services coming to an end on September 1 - Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 With the release of Tekken Tag Tournament 2 on consoles came an online function called World Tekken Federation that tracked numerous player statistics. Unfortunately, this intricate service will no longer be active by the time next month rolls around.

According to the Japanese Tekken Tag Tournament 2 website, the World Tekken Federation service is coming to an end on September 1st of this year.

Due to WTF's heavy integration with the console version of Tekken Tag Tournament 2, other online features are also going to affected by this closure. Features such as replay searching, replay and ghost downloading, team creation and web access of the World Tekken Federation website will all be afflicted.

Why are TTT2 and SC5 struggling so much? They're both excellent games with in-depth and intricate mechanics. I personally love them both and can't understand why the scenes are so small.

SeriphAngel said on August 2, 2013 at 10:10 a.m.

So the game is about to lose features....Wow Namco nice way to make yourself look bad. Let this be a lesson to not integrate overly needed outside sources and use that extra time to tweak the game and add actually decent inside content, like better endings and costumes since the fighting in the game is fine.

They have a few months to figure out another way to keep the access to replays(even though the searching style was terrible) and ghost to work just fine. It is just the coding that needs to be redone. Hopefully they will just use the Tekken 6 style to fix the issue.

@#8: Tekken is considered one of the most complex games out and SC5 was just bad as a SC title.

JiFoJoka said on August 2, 2013 at 10:11 a.m.

It's a shame, I found this to be the best Tekken game. Stupidly, I don't play online because of players spamming the same move. :P

(On a slightly different note, I hope they change the Tekken formula. There needs to be some interesting mechanic(s) to make this game enjoyable to play and watch.)

@8 ttt2,s5,an sfxt pretty much sold the same amount but I still remember when people on EH was so happy for free dlc characters yet most didn't even buy the game I don't play it much anymore due to work an it would take too much of my time to get decent still I at least showed support

Hey can't support a dead game for too long and the reason 3D fighters are struggling because Capcom is making fighting games again like those games got a chance against games like SSF4 & UMvC3 the 3D fad has been dragged long enough and only lasted because of Capcom

Can someone please explain how this game is "dead"? The online is always packed with players and the arcade scene seems to still be active. :/

On a side note, It would be pretty cool if by taking away WTF, they could add online pair play like SFXT.

#23
Smorgasboard said on August 2, 2013 at 10:57 a.m.

This is definitely related to the poor console sales because the arcade service Tekken net Is still running after all these years.

Who would have thought that over a year later, SFxT would have gotten a balance update and more contestants at EVO while TTT2 would be shutting down services.

Well, between Tekken Revolution, the Arcades and the card game, at least the brand is still strong elsewhere.

Because Tekken and SC (both great games) thrived during a time when Street Fighter was in hibernation.

It now consumes the lion share of the FG market.

Even SFxT did 1.4 million not too long after release.

@23

Maybe its dead on the 360. On ps3 its still strong.

Also harada said that if they put in online pair match, it will lag really bad cause you're pairing up with people across the world... so its best not to do it.

The FGC is a small community. Even if everyone here were to support the game, I don't think it would have made much of a difference. I don't know why people like you get so butthurt when bad business practices are being called out. For all we know those who claimed they were going to support the game....did, but who knows?

#34
badjab326 said on August 2, 2013 at 11:25 a.m.

This is why we can't have nice things FGC. Because when a company actually puts forth great effort, and asks for little in return, you don't buy it. But Capcom comes in copy pasting everything they got, asking for 10x the price of the base game and you're all "take my money gais!"

GG people.

#35
Wardog said on August 2, 2013 at 11:38 a.m.

@34

Oh,OK. That's good to hear.

You also got to remember that TTT2 came out during the fighting game month. When a lot of different fighting games was coming out left and right... so I guess people was getting a little tired of a new fighting game coming out and didn't want to learn new things all over again.

Plus, I respect Namco and other company's but, Namco (also Capcom) had a higher expectations and didn't appreciate the sales, they had got.

#36
KCereal said on August 2, 2013 at 11:39 a.m.

Well that's a downer. I'm guessing they're still on that F2P Tekken 3 simulator more than keeping World Tekken Federation going.

TrueGamingGuru said on August 2, 2013 at 11:46 a.m.

It really sucks to see part of Tekken's online feature being closed down, I don't really spend time with TTT2 online anyway.

Honestly even if TTT2 is packed with content or free content (its barely DLC) that doesn't prove anything, TTT2 is still nothing when it comes to the gaming marketing & western marketing in general. The reasons that TTT2 wasn't popular is because games like TTT2 is too hard, too complex for the causal gamers. Causal gamers is the reason why your beloved game like TTT2 is nothing.

Many of you shouldn't even blame Tekken Revolution for why TTT2 online service is closing down or why TTT2 didn't sell well to begin with, all you people should really blame is the Causal gamers since these people are the reasons that our gaming generation is corrupted.

Besides many of those gamers were pretty busy with another genre that isn't a fighter game. When it comes to the Western Gamer Market, Shooter Games are the more important part of the gaming generations while Fighter Games are less important. The Japanese gamers are mostly playing TTT2 for the Arcades.

The people that were going like "Ohh TTT2 is doing a good job with their extra content, take notes Capcom." they're just bunch of cry babies that are not entitled to anything, and they say this stuff just to act like a spoiled brat that needed to get hurt.

So in conclusion the Tekken series is starting to becoming the least popular games, and eventually become stagnant. (If something doesn't change) So many of you accept reality TTT2 will never become the gamer's choice of games, despite what TTT2 content even has even Tekken will never appeal many gamers.

#40
Daedae22 said on August 2, 2013 at 11:47 a.m.

@35 As if over the half the cast of TTT2 aren't just copy and pasted higher res chars from T6 lmao. You know why Tekken is dead in the FGC? Because its boring as hell to watch. The viewers is what bring in the money and companies will always cater to the group with the biggest numbers. Capcom and in particular Marvel is killing it when it comes to stream viewers because you don't have to know a damn thing to watch it and have a good time. Trust me I'm not the biggest Marvel fan either just calling like it is. Tekken and SC need something to energize their franchises again but idk what they could do honestly. SC5 tried with the inclusion of super arts but that didnt really do much game is just bad. Might be time to let a sleeping dog lie. When it comes to these franchises.

#43
Wardog said on August 2, 2013 at 12:02 p.m.

@40

That's not true. Tekken will always be popular, just not in the eye of the Casual. If Namco change this game (which they did) they'll lose their hardcore and casual will just drop it anyways... making it a lot worse. The main problem is, not that the game is too hard to learn but gamers are too lazy to learn the game and they believe in their mind that they should never lose and automatically hang with the big boys without trial & errors.

People just got to admit that, if its not a Capcom street fighter game (besides SfxT) or an easy to pick up game, then what's the point of playing it. I don't want use this example but look at the tournaments and streams... what do they show a lot? Injustice barely making it, thanks to the new DLC and the game still new.

Terrible news. WTF is one of the best features I've ever encountered in a fighting game. Detailed statistics on all of your matches, nice presentation too. This is a real shame. We can speculate all we want, but I wonder what the true reasoning behind this is.

#47
Wardog said on August 2, 2013 at 12:19 p.m.

@46

Tekken WTF had played a nice part in TTT2. Not only can make a Team on there but you can battle other top teams. You can also look up yours or other player profiles, to see if you want to recruit that person or not. It had a lot going for it.

I'll miss though.

#48
suicidali said on August 2, 2013 at 12:21 p.m.

That's a real shame, it's a neat feature that I hope other games, not just fighters, will be able to copy. I'm sure some do already, but it'd something I'd like to see more of.
Considering that the game has been in the arcades in Japan for as-close-as-makes-no-difference 2 years, it's had a decent run.
Also, I vote WTF as the best fighting game related acronym ever.

#49
TrueGamingGuru said on August 2, 2013 at 12:24 p.m.

@44 What I meant by Tekken not being popular has to really do with the videogame marketing overall. Not just the fighter genre but also the shooter genre, action/adventure genre, racing genre etc.

For fighter game standards the Tekken series will still be popular when it comes to just sales of fighter game overall. The closes sales your ever going to get is 1 million from games like SC, Tekken, SF, DOA, PSASBR etc.

When it comes to change in general, I didn't mean completely change the mechanics too much. Look at Tekken Revolution, it still plays like the traditional Tekken games but remove the bound combos from Tekken 6-TTT2.

Look at groups like Gamespot & IGN they even said the learning curve is too steep. From a Casual view in general they would say stuff like that. That is true that the gamers just choose not to learn anything new when it comes to fighter games.

Its honestly the fact that the fighter genre in the gaming marketing in general isn't very popular anymore for the generation were living in now.

#50
TrueGamingGuru said on August 2, 2013 at 12:31 p.m.

@45 Well in the generation were living in now, the causal gamers would not even want to take their time to learn and they wouldn't be having fun unless if it was click and win. (what a Shooter Game does)

Honestly its not really a Capcom mentality, its the mind of a Casual Gamer since they're ways of gaming skill is very limited and the mindset is like a child that were meant for Mario Party games, Shooters, and the easy to play.

PS. Its fine if you don't have the best English, it really doesn't matter that much as long as I can understand ya.

Cosmo26 said on August 2, 2013 at 12:32 p.m.

Poor americans...you think the World gravitates toward your country. Elsewhere TTT2 is strong and online is full on.
By the end of its life, it'll surpass T6 sales, the second best fighting game seller this generation after Mortal Kombat.

#52
BoscaBat said on August 2, 2013 at 12:39 p.m.

And people think they know everything about TTT2 not being good. The game is still alive online and still plays fluidly than some of those 2D fighting games. And even though PROBABLY not too many people play the game in America‚ you still have a huge number playing in other countries. So don't say a game is dead even when there are still tournaments hosting it. WTF will be a big thing since replays from others will be affected‚ so I'll definitely miss this feature‚ but it will still not prevent me from playing the game online. I'll continue supporting this game.

IMO It's exactly those strengths that make them struggle. Too much depth and its really hard for new players to get into the game, because there's just too much to learn. Meanwhile, the veterans aren't gonna play it forever.

But that's how FG works ! With their own rules, own terminology and own community. They were never a system sellers or something like that (well, ok, there's couple of exceptions) due to the specific appeal. For some unknown reason, today people don't understand (or don't want to), that fighters are something more coplex, than form of entertainment with beer. Not sure what it is though - stupidity or laziness. God bless EH, Shoryuken and many other sites for thinking otherwise.

43@ As much as i love DOA. Its online is a graveyard in the desert since day 1 and the upcoming expansion will not change things. Are you on XBOX? Cause from what i recall even you arent playing the game that much do you? Out of the 10 people that are always online i didnt catch you!
Game is barely decent nothing more and will always remain far behind competition.
Plus its online lag is atrocious on par with MK9 at best. Not to mention that apart from Hayabusa the rest of the cast lacks depth and are uninteresting.
Sorry but DOA's time has ended before it even started.It was at its best on DOA4. Before any serious beat'em up came around, that is.
-On topic. TTT2 revenues where good enough from what i recall from my time to WTF than it warands a new iteration of the series.
TTT2 as is it remains one of the most complete and in depth fighting experiences and im glad that Harada graced us with his vision.
Along with SF4 and Mahvel the best of both worlds!...";)
Oh and please stop always trolling the Tekken threads with your "Boobies" game.
Thanks!

#60
gqazndood said on August 2, 2013 at 1:18 p.m.

I don't think the game sold enough. Which is a shame because they gave us free DLC. We support SF4 because of its brand yet we complain about paying for DLC and upgrade. TTT2 comes out gives us free DLC no one buys a copy. It's about a business now these days you can say that you want this and want that but if you don't support it and it's going to fail. I believe that TR is a cause of this as well. All of the casual fighting gamers are probably shelling out money for those online tokens and costumes because it's just what they do... They should of made TR like a teaser for people to buy TTT2 I don't even see ads or links in TR to lead you to buy TTT2.
Getting rid of WTF might be another sign that they will probably not be producing a Tekken 7 anytime soon...

MentalFloss said on August 2, 2013 at 1:20 p.m.

Xykes said on August 2, 2013 at 1:54 p.m.

Actually, SFxT, like TTT2 has SHIPPED 1.5 million copies as far as we currently know.

Usually, when sales numbers are reported by companies, they mean SHIPPED.

However, since SFxT was listed as shipping 1.4 million last year, and is now listed as 1.5 million...
it's safe to presume that many of those initial 1.4 million actually got SOLD (otherwise, why would they have shipped out another 100,000 copies? There must have been a demand for them).

Also, SC5 actually sold pretty well, compared to Namco's expectations.

So much misinformation on EH.

And its waay more then 10 players online, you probably just have bad connection. Third, what does all that have to do with DOA5 Ultimate coming out? P.S I heard it has improvements to online and will add tag pair play (all separate systems) new characters, re-hauled system, new game modes, costumes, etc... What's tekken doing?

If you like to pony more money to get the real deal out of DOA then more power to you. Game is good but never will be EVO material.

TrueGamingGuru said on August 2, 2013 at 3:52 p.m.

@58 I know that's how fighting games work since they are pretty technical, there is a learning curve to improve your skill, and knowing what is your strengths kinda like real-life martial arts.

Honestly the people of today is no where better, and the Casual Gamers is starting to become the main appeal while complex fighter games are not getting the attention as what other genres are getting. The Western Gaming Marketing are making things worst for what videogames represent, its becoming a place for Casuals with a narrow mindset that refuse to improve their skill and are right now of today is always playing COD. Even videogames are now starting to become the next Hollywood, along with games not having a learning curve, and becoming a friendly playground for arrogant casual trolls.

Stupidity & Laziness is what Casual Gamers really are when time is progressing, since they want their stuff served on a silver platter and have no care for anything else. I believe of what is really going on is that the videogame generation is now becoming a place for Casual & Non-Gamers where all the games their getting is just COD and a bunch TV/Netflix apps.

#75
TrueGamingGuru said on August 2, 2013 at 4:06 p.m.

@61 Honestly I don't even believe that Tekken Revolution is a cause of why part of TTT2 online is shutting down. Even if Tekken Revolution wasn't created, TTT2 was never going to sell well nor attract the gamers of today. TTT2 having free DLC really gives no reason on why gamers would even want to play TTT2 to begin with, even having a tons of content still has no reason why gamers would want to play TTT2. The people complaining about DLC methods, are nothing more than a bunch of children that weren't entitled to anything and would just cry about it. Did you think the people that were crying about Capcom's DLC stuff would just decide to go play TTT2 instead, I don't think so. Even the gamers were probably playing a shooter game anyway like Borderlands 2 which came out the same day as TTT2.

Even the Japanese gamers were still playing TTT2 for arcades, they'd even pay tons of yen rather than buy a console version of TTT2.

I wouldn't jump to conclusion about Tekken 7 not being produced because of the World Tekken Federation being shutdown, besides the PS4 & Xbox One hasn't been released yet. Plus there is other projects that the Tekken team is still busy from add stuff for Tekken Revolution, and there is also Tekken X Street Fighter that is still in the air of what the Tekken team will be working on.

(he asked why tekken and sc5 are struggling)

I say ist because they are hard games to play and in a market where no one wants to sit down and learn a game anymore you gotta have a beginners tutorial or something, tekken tag had one, but it sucked, and SC5 has none at all.
Correct me if im wrong, but isnt marvel having a hard time for the same reasons?

For those talking about shipped vs sold games, take a look at this article:http://www.dualshockers.com/2011/08/13/the-difference-between-shipped-and-sold-is-less-relevant-than-you-think/

Basically shipped vs sold doesn't even matter...and yet people continue to fight over it...

Now it makes sense that I paid only $19.99 for TTT2 new at Best Buy yesterday.

71@ I love DOA, not in love with it. At least not anymore. I was a die hard fan of DOA cause i was and still im an XBOX user. TEKKEN was a PS2 exclusive and apart from SC2 and DOA i had no alternative. Yes i like DOA to an extend but TEKKEN is more rotted in my heart since the arcade days. Plus for me DOA was a poor mans TEKKEN.
73@ Butthurt? Hardly... I own DOA since day 1 and from my Experience its online portion is as dead as its title implies.
TEKKEN will always thrive! Just take a look at Tekken Zaibatsu and the DOA forums and simply count its user base. Even VF5FS has more traffic then DOA would have ever hoped for.
Rockdude / Whatever stop trolling the TTT2 threads. You game is Dead On Arrival due to poor online lag. If on its expansion they keep the same code than the game is doomed to be Dead On Arrival part 2...";)

OK! You guys are tiresome...
Whether you like it or not TEKKEN is a staple in the fighting gender
and closing WTF will not make DOA a better game, neither will mean the end of the series. See it from the other side of the coin. Do you fancy a cool fighting game to be extinct? This means less members in the community.
The immaturity of your opinions is shocking and this Rock/whatever dude has been plaguing the TTT2 threads for far too long.
We get it! You like DOA but honestly the game (and i do like it Plus i own every one of them) is no good. Face the facts dudes! DOA is a VF clone and a poors man TEKKEN... Its saddening i know but its the truth.
Whoever believes that the Ultimate DOA will change things is lying to him self. I wont even bother to continue this discussion.
My 2 cents...":)

88@ Screaming? Is this a childish way of you trying to mock me? Way to go dude...
I do not dislike DOA, but between TTT2 and DOA i would prefer the first one.
Biast? No way... I own every DOA there is and played them to death. I recognize the quality of the series but it hardly made an impact in the fighting gender other then its controversial theme.
Do not be happy for a game having a difficult time. It will affect us all in the long term.

P.S. Based on its creator Itagaki DOA is a VF ripoff with lower entrance and bigger (.Y.) made to impress.
On the other Hand TEKKEN is an original concept. Kids today... Go figure...";(

@91 Your an idiot. DOA had stop being in arcades around DOA 3. Therefore console sales dropped. Around DOA 2 the game was even compared to Tekken as the best selling 3D fighting games at the time. Sales are irrelevant. DOA has always been innovative and had beautiful blockbuster stages while Tekken has always been below that standard, with their goofy and pointless characters,(dopplegangers,animals, devils etc.)and crappy story and graphics.(girls thats shaped like men WTF? LMAO) Dont get me wrong I like Tekken but after Tekken 5 the series went to absolute s***.

SKILL said on August 3, 2013 at 12:37 p.m.

92@ You are as immature as the theme of your game... DOA is beautiful but its gameplay is for guys at your mentality i guess...
Anyway go play it along with the 9 other dudes who give a rats ass about hentai and stop this crap each time you see a Tekken thread "Oh is DOA time, Oh DOA forever" and crap like this. You make yourself look like a clown.
Doa will never be relevant and will always remain at the bottom of the gender. Will i support it? Hell yea cause i dont want to see a game reduced to zero and disappear.
You are a funny little guy. You know that?

Wow, that's such a shame. I loved this system. I could see how many throw breaks I did, or how many low attacks my opponent made, etc.

I hope they bring it back for Tekken 7, or that other games use it because it's pretty useful for getting an overview of your performance.

First off I agree whole heartily with the people who mentioned about how the current generation of gamers mindsets are nowadays. Many people would tell me back in the day video games were played amongst players to compete for the high score and would sharpen their skills to make that goal a reality.
This is the mindset of many people who play fighting games with other players in terms of competitive play.
I also support the one guy who said that now video games are turning Hollywood. Instead of people playing the game for game's sake they play it for the storyline. That's why it's been eons since a fighting game made game of the year. People these days don't give a crap about developing their skills in a game. As long as there is 20th Century Fox quality cutscenes in it they're good.
As for WTF, I really feel bad for the players who enjoyed it. I never used the feature but I still play my TTT2 online on my PS3 and I can say that the game still has support.

@ InitialR: No. Moved means shipped.
