Aug 31 20202 min
In this online qualifier, we’ve got another participant of Capcom Cup 2020

Most regions in the series Capcom Pro Tour have two events, so Street Fighter V players can try their luck and prove their skills twice. For the Western part of North America, the first such tournament happened on August 15-16, where Nephew became the winner and Punk surprisingly lost in the Top 16 part. Esports fighting professionals from the Eastern North America played their first CPT on June 20-21, and DR Mandrake claimed the victory. The final qualifier for this region took place on August 29-30. Have you watched it?

There were 348 attendees at this tournament. The initial pools helped to select Top 16 among them, who fought for the places in the Top 8 part.
