It’s that time of year again. After what has been arguably the most competitive season of the Capcom Pro Tour so far, the top 32 Street Fighter V players in the world will be gathering for the Capcom Cup 2019 finals – the culmination of the international esports fighting game circuit that is the Capcom Pro Tour.
Given that you have to be one of the strongest and most consistent players in the international Street Fighter scene in order to qualify for the Capcom Cup finals in the first place, pretty much every one of the 32 players in the bracket has a chance to win it all. Having said that, there are several players that we will be paying special attention to.
All 32 players here are excellent competitors, but even among them, you have a select few top contenders – the ones who have been truly dominant in major tournaments throughout the year.
Then you have the dark horse picks – players who most people wouldn’t choose as their favourite to win, but actually, have a very high chance of showing up and beating everyone else.
Here are our top 5 contenders and top 5 dark horse picks for the Capcom Cup 2019 finals. Let’s go!
