EventHubs 2017 top 50 Street Fighter 5 players 30-21

Posted by Justin 'AdaptiveTrigger' Gordon • December 28, 2017 at 7:51 p.m. PST

It's time for the next 10 players in top 50 Street Fighter 5 countdown for 2017.

Today's list sees additional appearances of players that made it all the way to Capcom Cup 2017. The chosen main characters are actually looking pretty varied here.

The fighters here include Cammy, Rashid, Karin, Balrog, and even a player who's been making waves with his pocket Zeku.

If you haven't been following along, we've put together a panel of 33 fighting game community members, all of whom voted on who they felt were the absolute best players of 2017.

We showed off the second ten yesterday, and now continue with players 30-21 this evening.

Be sure to chime in to the comments section and let us know to what degree you agree or disagree with the list thus far. We'd also love to hear your predictions for how the rest of this top 50 will play out.

Read on to see who made today's list of top Street Fighter 5 players in the world.
