We might no longer be getting a Capcom Cup this year due to circumstances beyond everyone's control, but that has not stopped us from getting quality Street Fighter V action. Over the weekend, the Capcom Pro Tour Central America East 2 took place and we had a winner in Jimmy_DR who won an intriguing grand final against a veteran of the game, LuiMan20.
The first iteration of the tournament which took place last year saw MenaRD take the victory and qualify for Capcom Cup, but this time, Mena did not participate as he didn't want to gatekeep anyone. That said, the bracket was still stacked with great players including Crossover, Caba, and recent CEO 2021 winner, Mono.
Mono came into the tournament as a favourite and while he made it to top 8, he eventually crashed out to Bushinmaster whose Zeku was just too much for Mono to handle.
Jimmy was something of a dark horse considering how new he is to the scene compared to some of the other people in the bracket, but his Balrog was phenomenal and he really got to show what he was made of.
