Tekken Champ Sets New Guinness World Record

London, England: 28th October– Guinness World Records can confirm that Eliot Smith-Walters (UK) A.K.A Shadow Force, has broken into the Guinness World Records Gamer’s Edition for the longest winning streak on Tekken 6– by beating 68 consecutive opponents in best-of three matches.

The successful record attempt took place at the MCM Expo in Docklands Excel Arena on Saturday 24th October. Official Guinness World Records representatives were present to adjudicate the feat, which is now shortlisted for inclusion in next year’s Guinness World Records Gamer’s Edition.

Eliot’s character of choice was newcomer Lars Alexandersson, with Miguel Caballero Rojo, Lee Chaolan, and Sergei Dragunov selected against specific opponents. During the attempt he achieved 25 perfects and lost only 9 rounds, giving him a win:loss ratio of 100:7. Even the current UK champion and winner of Super Vs Battle 2009 Phil‘Dinosaur’ Mackenzie was unable to break Eliot’s streak on the day.

Gaz Deaves, Editor of Guinness World Records Gamer’s Edition, said:“It was certainly a dramatic few hours. With Dinosaur’s epic win at the Super vs. Battle this year we were expecting him to walk away with the record, so when Eliot KO’d him in the third round we almost couldn’t believe what we were seeing. Overall the standard of play was very high, with Eliot clearly the strongest on the day.”
