Another weekend of hot battles in Street Fighter V took place in Southeast Asia this time. Brandon Chia, a Singaporean player, was really dominant through the whole tournament and won a ticket to the next Capcom Cup against LacunaC, who made a strong run through the losers side, taking down Xian and b3lLz on the way.

Dragon Ball FighterZ World Championship Finals finally took place last weekend in Paris, France. Best players from the whole world came to fight for the title, but it once again ended up with an everlasting France vs USA rivalry.

That concluded the previous season of competitive DBFZ. however, the next one is just around the corner, with the first DBFZ World Tour 2022 tournament taking place at the upcoming Evo 2022.
