Another week, another batch of exciting things happening in the fighting game community.

Though EventHubs posts several stories a day, not everyone gets a chance to check them out. So, here we have a recap for anyone who might have missed anything.

Today we're going to take a look back at some of the big headlines that went up on our front page from November 3rd through today (November 10th).

From a potential deal between 20th Century Fox and Disney to an amazing Street Fighter 5 set between two legends, there's quite a bit to dig into.

We have provided links to the original stories here, so be sure to get the full scoop by clicking through each.

Let's get started.

Over the weekend, the final Infinity Stone for the Battle for the Stones tournament series was not only revealed, but awarded to the winner of the event at the Capcom Pro Tour Latin America Regional Finals. We now know that the Reality Stone will allow the wielder to change three buttons on their opponent's control setting for one match.

The Reality Stone was claimed by Umbrella|Linj, who took first place with a team of Ultron and Dante.

A report surfaced early Monday morning that spoke of a potential deal in which Disney would acquire most of 20th Century Fox. Conversations between the two companies have been taking place over the past few weeks, although, it was noted that they weren't in talks at the time the report was published.

Naturally, a deal like this actually coming to fruition could mean that the rights to the Fantastic Four and the X-Men would go to Disney, which would hopefully lead to representation for these characters in Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite.

At the start of the week, Capcom release their financial report for Q2. In it, we learned that the company shipped 900,000 copies of Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite worldwide.

Not only that, but an update on Street Fighter 5's sales was provided. Over the course of three months (June through September), the game sold another 200,000 units.

Capcom shared details on this year's Capcom Cup. As expected, the finals will be taking place at the PlayStation Experience on Sunday, December 10th, at the Anaheim Convention Center in California.

We learned that the event will run for three days, with the first two being played out at the Anaheim Hilton hotel just outside of the convention center. It was also confirmed that there will be no group format for the tournament.

When Capcom releases a new version (or season) of a game, it often comes with a full set of balance changes. With that in mind, the end of the year around the corner and Street Fighter 5: Arcade Edition on the horizon, we thought it would be a good time to list some of the moves we feel should be toned down.

The eight moves we selected range from Laura's pesky standing medium kick to Ibuki's V-Trigger. Be sure to check it out, and let us know in the comments of the story which moves you'd like to see adjusted.

And lastly, we have an absolutely spectacular set between two fighting game legends. CYG|Daigo Umehara and FOX|Tokido ran an online, first-to-five set in Street Fighter 5 that is a must see.
