The much anticipated CPT 2022 season looks set t begin with a bang
While Capcom has been embroiled in a fair few controversies over the last few days, there is still a lot of excitement for the 2022 edition of the Capcom Pro Tour. Not only is it a return to competitive Street Fighter, but it is also a return to a fair few offline tournaments. The first location is NA West which will take place on the 30th of April 2022.
To add to the hype, RobTV, a competitive Street Fighter V player and commentator, released a video on his Twitter account where he announced the return of No Neutral, a pre-game show that airs on Capcom Fighter's YouTube channel. The show, which is hosted by RobTV and Brian_F, goes over the hot topics within the Street Fighter corner of the FGC, along with debates over characters, personalities, and so on. The first season seemed quite well received, so it was good news to hear that the second season will be returning along with the start of the 2022 CPT season.
Rob was not done though, as he also put out a 'hit' on ChrisCCH, another competitive player from the West coast. This is because Chris is one of the favorites to win the CPT event in NA West largely because of Luke who is undoubtedly the best player in the game right now.
The West has a fair few players who can challenge including Nephew and Samurai, but with how dominant Luke is, the feeling around the FGC is that ChrisCCH will win. To spice things up, Rob announced that he would be giving $100 to anyone who knocks Chris from the winners' bracket and another $75 to anyone who can knock him out of losers. Chris had a humorous response tweeting that he not only lives rent-free in RobTV's head but is now also costing the caster money.
This little amiable spat has set the stage for an exciting tournament. Now we can look forward to the 30th of April knowing that we are entitled to some amazing fireworks. What do you think? Will a lucky competitor on the West Coast win some free money, or is Luke just too good?
