Nothing you wouldn't expect. More and more competitors are qualifying for the capcom cup though, which means we're getting our first glimpses of what that's going to look like, which makes me extremely excited.

Ohhhh nice. I haven't seen a capcom tourney in awhile besides this years evo and some streams tourneys. I'll be sure to check it out this time around if there's going to be a large amount of competitors.

Honestly, I just haven't been that into it this year largely because of SFV. I don't have any personal issues with SFV like some people do but it just hasn't ever really grabbed my attention. Maybe it's partially due to the lack of character variety particularly in high level play. Seeing what felt like nothing but Chun, Ryu and Nash for months and months on end kind of soiled the game for me.

My biggest hope for the CapCup finals is that we'll actually see some character variety and then we'll see a preview for Season 2 that includes a full re-balance, some new system mechanics and at least a tease of some new characters.

Well the variety still isn't ideal, but I can promise you can definitely see many Necali, Karin, Laura, Ken and Cammy players. And though they are less common I promise you will see some action from characters like Rashid, Vega, Birdie, Guile, R.Mika and Juri as well. The only ones I would say you're really not likely to see are M.Bison, Balrog and Fang, which is a shame because that last one is probably the only one I could get away with cosplaying.

True. Character variety is definitely much better now than it was. It's still a little lopsided at the top but at least it's not likely we'll end up with GF being a Nash mirror again.

Personally I want to see Alex and Urien more since they're my favorite sf characters. I don't imagine seeing many Alex as of now but maybe some Uriens at least. I don't know how good Urien stacks up but I don't imagine it's too bad.

Oh yeah, that's another one you barely see, I forgot Alex was in the game so much that I didn't even include him in my list of SF characters you barely see played. There are some really good Uriens though.

Lol I don't blame you for forgetting Alex since he barely appears aside from casuals. Honestly, I'd rather play his 3rd strike version. A guy told me what Alex is good at is really great but his flaws are also pretty abysmal. I'm hoping a balance patch comes in to tweak the game at least. Almost all the dlc characters don't seem to get much play - but I'm glad Urien is good though really like what they did with hin.

There's some good Guiles at least (Guile was a dlc character, right?) If you want a great example check out I'mstilldaddy's fights in Milan.

I was hoping Mago would win SCR 2016 (I love watching his Karin) but it seems Cammy's pressure was too much for him to deal with (Xiao Hai put him in losers and then KBrad sent him home).

Speaking of Xiao Hai, when he's on point he seems unbeatable. He's definitely gonna be bringing a lot of momentum into the Capcom Cup finals.

Early on it seemed like Infiltration would win everything but there are at least 5 players right now who can take it all at the finals:

- Tokido
- Momochi
- Xiao Hai
- Daigo
- Infiltration
