Michael Martin offers a quick breakdown of what’s new on the agenda for Capcom Cup.

Another week brings another Wake Up Wednesdays recap show from Capcom Fighters, featuring Michael Martin. In this week’s installment, Martin goes over new details for Capcom Cup 2017, confirming best-of-five matches throughout, and noting that the action will be broadcast on two streams this year.

He then goes into the recent shake-up caused by the withdrawal of last year’s Champion Liquid|NuckleDu from his auto-qualification spot; the Succession rule passes the auto-qualification to 2016’s runner-up EG|Ricki Ortiz. However, even though Ortiz is replacing NuckleDu in the tournament, she will actually be placed in the 31st seed position due to her CPT points being less than the other qualifiers. Meanwhile, the winner of the Last Chance Qualifier will take the 32nd slot. Watch the full video — and see the planned brackets — below!
