Original story: Capcom Cup 2018 beckons as players from all over the world are preparing for their trips to Las Vegas. We're a mere four days away from the start of the action as this Friday will see the Last Chance Qualifier play out and crown the 32nd and final entrant into the Cap Cup bracket.

The other 31 participants are well aware of their first round match ups as Capcom has posted the official bracket, and that means it's time for some fantasy predictions. We've set up a series of polls so that you can share who you think will advance beyond the first round.

It shouldn't surprise that some of the biggest names in the world will be facing off from the very start, but seeing these as round one match ups can be jarring simply because it's almost always the case that names like Mouz|Problem X and Rise|MenaRD are seeded quite far from one another.

The reigning EVO champion and reigning Capcom Cup champion will nonetheless be each others' first bout, meaning one of these titans of Street Fighter 5 will be sent to the losers bracket after just one set.

Chris T parted ways with his sponsor, Cygames Beast, just about a month ago but will be facing his former teammate, CYG|Fuudo, at the beginning of his Capcom Cup run. There are more than a few more early slobberknockers on the books and you'll be able to view them all and vote below.
