As one of the biggest and most anticipated events in the Philippines of the fighting game community (FGC), REV Major has always been watched out for its tournaments for Tekken 7, Street Fighter V, Dragon Ball FighterZ among others.
However, with the pandemic putting a halt to all events and gatherings on location, the organizing team at Gariath Concepts had to hit pause on the project. It didn’t stop the team, though, from preparing for the next. Reassessments were made, and the team drilled down on what truly mattered to the fighting game community and adapted to the evolutionary normal – by pivoting and maximizing the online space. And on its first fully digital installment, REV MAJOR is back.
Happening on November 5 to 7, REV Major wants to #DoItDifferent by fully activating in an online space, exploring and further expanding the possibilities for the FGC.

REV Major Lockdown shouldn’t be without its tournaments.
