Capcom Cup IX is doing things differently for Street Fighter 5’s last world finals event by kicking the competition off with an extended group stage, which is giving fans even more great matches and picks/counterpicks than before.






With day 2 for the group stage round basically in the books, we’ve gathered the full character stats for the full top 47 players participating in Capcom Cup where the Luke army is apparently coming out in full force.









Unlike the Last Chance Qualifier for the main event, SF5’s last DLC character is making a much larger impact in almost every group for these round robin sets.


There’ve been 12 competitors to use Luke thus far during the tournament with 9 of them being main picks and 3 more as secondary or side choices, which equates to 25% of the total bracket.


That amount is more than 2nd, 3rd and 4th place combined for fighters selected being a bit more surprising as Birdie, Ken and F.A.N.G respectively.


Although he’s received the most screen time, that Luke popularity is not necessarily equating to success so far, as only 1 of the 8 groups currently has a Luke main in position to move on to the top 16.


There’s still one more day of round robin ahead, however, so that could very well be changing pretty drastically when all is said and done.


We have some more interesting stats regarding the other characters seeing play this week too, considering this is the first Capcom Cup since 2016 to feature 2 Nash mains.


This year’s event is also providing the first chance for Falke and Ed players to be represented on the main Capcom Cup stage (not 1 but 2 of each) as well as Blanka, Kage, Juri and Seth.


Out of these top 47 players, we’ve seen 23 different mains with the total growing to 29 characters as of day 2 of groups.


There’s still a lot more Capcom Cup action coming this week, but you can get the full breakdown of characters we’ve seen so far in one of the last big competitions for Street Fighter 5.
