“When I saw Tekken Crash, I saw my future playing professional Tekken.”
Dimeback, whose moniker is a play on Pantera guitarist “Dimebag Darrell”, has made a name for himself in the Tekken 7 scene for being one of the very few Asuka players to take her to the top.

If you believe in fate, at least, then Dimeback’s pick is certainly a product of it. “Asuka can kind of ignore frame data,” Dimeback said. “Being able to play the mind games where I can play unexpectedly, is something I like to do.” Knowing that, it’s hard to imagine that he almost ended up being a Kazuya player.
