Street Fighter X Tekken not ran at Next Level Battle Circuit for past 2 weeks due to dwindling participants - a comparative look at the entry numbers Team Spooky and Next Level decided to discontinue their Street Fighter X Tekken tournaments at the Next Level Battle Circuit in Brooklyn, New York, for the past 2 weeks. The choice was made due to the consistently low number of participants in Capcom and Namco's crossover fighter each week.

Below we have compiled the number of entries for each game since the release of Injustice: Gods Among Us up until the most recent Battle Circuit. The number that follows each game represents how many players entered that tournament during that event.

Below is a bit to get you started but be sure to hit the jump for the full list.

As seen in the numbers above, Street Fighter X Tekken's entrants remained under 10 over the span of the last 2 months. With other games like Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition v2012 still going strong in the range of 19 - 30 competitors each week, the tag-team crossover title faced an unfortunate retrogression into lack of interest and participation.

It is currently unknown whether or not Street Fighter X Tekken will make a return to Next Level Battle Circuit. Chances are the SFxT tournament will be reinstated if more players decided to enter.

Information gathered via Next Level's Challonge brackets.
