While there were numerous Capcom Pro Tour events all over the world this past weekend, another battle was waged that had nothing to do with the Tour, but still ensured some downright fierce Street Fighter V competition.

The LAN Story Cup took place in Shanghai, China, featuring 8 of the world’s best gathered through special invitation, as well as another 8 warriors who qualified from within China. This 16-player all-star double elimination bracket also had $50,000 in prize money on the line, providing a great financial incentive for all participants to bring their best to the battlefield. Matches were best-of-3 up until top 8, where the rules shifted to a best-of-5 format. The invited players included:

  • Evo 2017 Champion Echo Fox|Tokido
  • Capcom Cup 2016 Champion Liquid|NuckleDu
  • RZR|Xian
  • AW|Nemo
  • BX3|Phenom
  • DouyuTV|Xiao Hai
  • RB|Bonchan
  • DNG|Itabashi Zangief
