The qualifying event in the UK and Ireland was the last one for 2021
Some might doubt the level of fighting esports competition in Europe, but it is enough to watch one of the Capcom Pro Tour events in this region to get rid of those thoughts. Imagine, a current Evo Champion not qualifying for the Capcom Cup? The level of pro players here is mind-blowing!
Quite recently, Street Fighter players from the United Kingdom and Ireland had their second qualifier for the Capcom Cup VIII. We encourage all the fighting games players to take your time and enjoy a match or two (or each and every fight). It’s a great esports show indeed and a chance to absorb unique tricks for your experience in SFV and fighting titles in general.
Capcom Pro Tour UK/Ireland 2 | Top 16
Just take a look at those brackets!
Problem X, who played in the Grand Final of the previous CPT UK event and won Red Bull Kumite in Las Vegas, enters the Top 16 part from the Losers Bracket.
Boltstrike and akaJones, participants of Red Bull Kumite in London, did not make it to Top 8.
Infexious and Hurricane are obvious favorites of the Winners side.
Capcom Pro Tour UK/Ireland 2 | Top 8
Hurricane, the Evo 2021 Online Champion, had troubles during the Top 8 part. He lost the Winners Semi-Final match 0:3. His Losers Quarter-Final was more of a fight, and still, Hurricane lost 2:3 and left the tournament.
Problem X had a much more successful and seemingly easier run. He got five victories in the Losers Bracket to reach the Grand Final.
Infexious had a similar situation in the Winners Bracket. Two confident victories took him to the final fight.
The Grand Final proved the full dominance of Infexious. Problem X managed to fight back only in some moments, and still, these periods did not bring too much damage.
Infexious is the winner of SFV Capcom Pro Tour UK/Ireland 2. Congratulations!
The previous CPT qualifier was in North America Midwest and Canada. Brian_F joined RobTV as a Capcom Cup participant from this region.
The rest of Street Fighter V CPT events of this season are planned for January 2022: Central America East 2, North America/Canada East 2, and Japan 4. The Last Chance Qualifier happens in February, offline, right before the Capcom Cup VIII.
