ECT COMMUNITY THROWDOWN REVEAL

Hey FGC,

First off, if you haven’t read our East Coast Throwdown 2021 announcement, do yourself a favor and check that out first. That in mind, we’re here to fully reveal the details of the ECT Community Throwdown on Facebook Gaming! 

All Community Throwdown tournament brackets will be hosted on Facebook Gaming through their tournament platform (which we really dig) and live streamed via the official Roadrunner Records Facebook page. To register for these tournaments, you’ll need a Facebook account! We’re very much looking forward to using the platform as it offers unique tools for us to manage regional restrictions and better moderation tools that point to an extremely promising player experience. ASTRO Gaming will also be returning to East Coast Throwdown as our official audio partner, powering our commentators with ASTRO A40 TR headsets, providing custom Speaker Tags and adding some sweet giveaways for you to get your hands on.

We also want to give a special shout out to the hard working teams over at Casa, TSB and NYC Tekken who will be lending their expertise on tournament bracket seeding and operations. Our goal is to produce the best player experience, and who better to support that than these community specialists. 

Lastly, we want to encourage everyone to come join the new ECT Community Discord! Feel free to reach out to the ECT team here or our Facebook page for any assistance regarding East Coast Throwdown events! Join the ECT community today:
