After four separate qualifiers in China, South Korea, Taiwan, and Singapore, Capcom Pro Tour Asia’s grand finals event is set to crown a champion at GameStart 2014. It’s been a long road, but only one player out of the eight strong competitors will be guaranteed a spot at Capcom Cup in December.

RZR|Xian, RZR|Gackt, MCZ|Daigo Umehara, AVM|GamerBee, Leslie, CCG|Humanbomb, Poongko, and Jiewa will face off in a grueling round-robin format, giving each player a chance to match up against their fellow competitors and see what they are made of in Ultra Street Fighter IV.

    LOL to all the people saying Daigo should return to Ryu because his E.Ryu was a fraud.
    Just LOL

    • ButtonsPressingThem1337Like

      It’s all about the hype train but he’s considered good because there are many much worse, looking at all the losers who have been playing these games for a long time, still shit, just plain stupid people.

  • PortBegger

    He has really improved with E.Ryu. A lot more focused and doesn’t drop combos anywhere like he was earlier in the year.

    • Emilkof

      He didn’t “improve” his E Ryu, it was always at this level.

      • CharmingRogue

        He just choked really hard at Evo. Happens sometimes.

      • Sincerely, The Jerk

        You are giving him tons of credit by saying he didn’t improve.

        • Emilkof

          What I was trying to say was that at the level that these players are playing at, improving is very hard…

          Daigo, even at the time of Evo and before that, had an Evil Ryu that was at roughly the same level as he is now. Just because he performed better in tournaments recently doesn’t mean he has really improved his Evil Ryu.

          I also think there wass ome kind of weird lag going on at Evo, there were a few players that reported it, particularly with Evil Ryu himself causing lag.

          • FNC~

            Hmmm everybody seems to whine about lag but there is no reason lag should ever be an issue. Don’t bring it up unless you have a feasible way that lag could have affected any of the setups.

          • Emilkof
          • Emezie Okorafor
          • Emilkof

            Daigo is obviously not going to complain and discredit them publicly

          • SpiderDan

            Who says only Americans make excuses after losing?

          • MCZ Ryu

            Actually there was lag at a few of the EVO stations. It was noticed by a number of the players there. I had matches at different stations and noticed a rather drastic difference in delay between different monitors. So yeah, I think it is a fair point to be brought up.

          • FNC~

            Placebo effect. There’s no reason it should be laggy; stop complaining.

          • MCZ Ryu

            Were you even there? All you’re doing is shutting down everyone who disagrees with you. I can understand if you disagree, that’s fine, but to completely disregard a common argument that many attendees have experienced at an event is ignorant.

          • FNC~

            But “many attendees” didn’t experience it. There’s you, and a random female Blanka player from Japan. Not credible at all. A
            VH236H connected to a 360 through hdmi is not going to lag.

  • Felipe Pereira

    That’s how I like seeing the beast go.

  • Steven

    Okay Poongko

  • 112th

    Gamerbee won’t make it to 4th place, neither will Xian win the whole thing, so Nuckledu goes to CC2014

    • EOTL_Legacy

      still DreamHack Winter to qualify

      • Nael

        Yeah, but the results here almost certainly lock up the points qualifier spots.

    • Jeptha Hines

      Nah, I don’t think Knuck or Kbrad or Smug will have enough points to make it. Go look at the standings, they have been updated. There will be 10 guys who qualify automatically. And 6 guys who make it in for points…

  • Sf4vids Youtube

  • 112th

    inb4 colluxian [Only two things went wrong with that match – the fact that he didn’t even pretend to be trying, which was terrible from PR standpoint {*see idiotic outrage on streamchat and kappa*}, but had no impact on the tourney whatsoever, plus the schedule, why the heck would you put two players from the same team as the last match, ESPECIALLY when you’re their sponsor who’s hosting the event. -> http://sirlingames.squarespace.com/blog/2012/8/1/playing-to-win-in-badminton.html%5D

    Great win by Daigo, and Nuckledu is guaranteed (?) a 6th spot by points. I’ve no idea who to root for at Dreamhack.

  • d3v

    Quick summary of how Capcom Cup now looks like.

    -Daigo
    -Infiltration
    -Luffy
    -Momochi
    -Nishikin
    -PR Balrog
    -Ryan Hart
    -Snake Eyez
    -Valmaster
    -??
    -Bonchan
    -JWong
    -Xian
    -Ricky Ortiz
    -ChuChu
    -NuckleDu

    With the bottom 6 qualifying based soley on points.

    Since points are finalized by Oct. 31, the only way to get to that last slot is to win Dreamhack. The exception being Gamerbee who can still get in if one those who’re qualified on points wins the event, freeing up the slot for him.

    • Sf4vids Youtube

      I find it strange that chuChu and Knuckledu got in so easily while Daigo had to travel Asia for it just to qualify today

      • d3v

        ChuChu and NuckleDu are in on points though. Prior to this, Daigo hadn’t been earning enough points to get in higher.

    • Jeptha Hines

      Nah man, Knuck can’t make it. Go look at the updated rankings. Kbrad, Smug and Fuudo are ahead of Knuck.

    • Jeptha Hines

      Actually looks like Gamerbee will probably be in with points for that 6th spot, that would knockout, knuck, Kbrad, smug and fuudo. So only one spot left with a qualifier.

    • abcdefgqwerty

      My picks might be bonchan or daigo to take capcom cup. I think snake needs a pocket character for a chance to win because some of these guys too good to beat with gief

  • Trey Roach

    It would be pure awesomeness to be able to play these players together in a round robin set…what i wouldn’t give yo!

  • Jeptha Hines

    What was this 8 man tournament even for? Its seems weird. Like this was only here to get Diago into the Capcom Cup… seems fishy.

    • Emilkof

      What? They had qualifiers leading up to this event, that is how they got these 8 players.

      • Jeptha Hines

        Oh ok

  • Sincerely, The Jerk

    So Poongko had custody of Daigo’s soul at Pro Tour Asia right?

    • abcdefgqwerty

      poongko looked really good with a pretty weak character. The only person to beat daigo.

  • Jason Slade

    I’m kind of sickened by the obvious collusion with Xian and Gackt. I was a big fan of Xian before this event now I don’t feel like I can root for him anymore.

    • Korey Mueller

      Yeah, it upset me as well. It was clear he wasn’t even trying to win. I get that he had already guaranteed himself a spot in grand finals and didn’t want to give his opponent more information about his Gen, but the half-ass performance we got was just completely insulting to us viewers. Not to mention that if Gackt had lost, wouldn’t that have secured 3rd place for Poongko? I’m not convinced we need to be upset about him not choosing Gen, but we should definitely be pissed that he simply handed the match to his teammate for free. We’re watching to see a show, and even if it’s free, we’re paying through the hours and hours of advertisements we’re stuck with. Giving us crappy entertainment like that is unacceptable.

      Partially related: this event featured the best play I’ve ever seen from Poongko. I’ve been a fan of his since EVO 2011, and he was just amazing here. He definitely earned the #3 spot, so it hurt to see it handed off to someone who didn’t have to put in the amount of work he did.

  • Drago Umeharevich

    Poongko, you da real MVP!
