Have you noticed something? Street Fighter V is not listed here. It’s probably the result of those new rules introduced by Capcom for Tournament Organizers. The official SFV tournament has been canceled and replaced with a USFIV one, run by the community.
More details on every tourney of Winter Showdown VIII can be found on this official smash.gg page.
So, what about the streams? Watch the fights on Akihabara's Twitch channel.
