Arslan Ash Siddique Fighting Game Player
In Pakistan, Arslan Ash was originally known for his play in The King of Fighters series, being recognized as the best KOF XIII & KOF XIV player from Pakistan.
Although Arslan Ash has been playing Tekken competitively since Tekken 6, he only burst onto the international Tekken scene after defeating Tekken legend Knee at the OUG Tournament 2018, without losing a single game. Also at OUGaming 2018, Arslan Ash was ranked number 1 in Tekken Tag Tournament 2 and The King of Fighters XIII, single-handedly beating the regional competition to qualify for the King of Fighters XIV Global Finals. In addition, Arslan Ash won the KOFGCC Tournament in Oman, Kuwait, for both KOF XIV and Tekken 7.
Arslan Ash then followed this with a very unexpected win at EVO Japan 2019, defeating established players like Knee once again, Chanel, Book, LowHigh (Evo 2018 Champ), Jimmyjtran and finally AK with a bracket reset to win the entire tournament. Arslan successfully retained his title at EVO 2019, sweeping through the winners bracket using Geese, and finally beating Knee once again with Kazumi in the Grand Finals, further cementing his position at the top of the Tekken scene.
