While the 2018 Red Bull Kumite was raging in Paris, France, the top Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition players in the Eastern North American region were battling in cyberspace, as the final Ranking Event of the 2018 Capcom Pro Tour Season was taking place. This signified the final chance for players to get points, that were more precious then ever before, as we head into next weekend’s North American Regional Finals at Red Bull Battlegrounds, which is the absolute last chance any players will have to secure their spot in next month’s Capcom Cup.
Eligible States included: Alabama, Arkansas, Connecticut, Delaware, the District of Columbia, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Ohio, Tennessee, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Vermont, Virginia, West Virginia and Wisconsin, as well as the Canadian Provinces of Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island, Nova Scotia, Newfoundland and Labrador.
With a massive 197 players battling it out for their place on the Regional and Global Leaderboards, it was guaranteed to be an amazing event.
