Earlier The 2017 Capcom Pro Tour kicked off with Final Round 20 last weekend, and though the tournament format for Street Fighter 5 is slated to remain 2/3 games up until 3/5 in top eight, a few top players have expressed they'd like a change.

French player and EVO 2014 champion RB|Luffy took to Twitter earlier to list off the reasons he'd rather tournaments be 3/5 all the way through. This quickly caught the attention of fellow Capcom Cup 2016 compteitor SPY|Filipino Champ, who couldn't agree more:

Though this isn't all that new a debate topic, we do have a full year's worth of Street Fighter 5 experience under our belts now, and perhaps that's given us a bit more wisdom on the matter. We've created a poll for you to let everyone know what your thoughts are.

With a year of experience in Street Fighter 5, what should the tournament standard be?

1. 3/5 for entire tournaments: 107 votes / 56.0%
2. 2/3 with 3/5 in top eight: 84 votes / 44.0%

Total votes: 191
