Week four of ELEAGUE action is in the bag with perhaps the most exciting round of action yet for Street Fighter 5 thanks to players like CYG|Daigo Umehara, PG|Infiltration and FD|Fujimura.

Fujimura was the most impressive player during round robin play finishing the initial sets with a record of 5-0 giving us the fastest perfect round I've seen in a tournament in Street Fighter 5. Infiltration even pulled out a surprise Chun Li pick to try and slow down Fujimura's oppressive Ibuki.

Daigo also came out swinging today ending pool play with a 4-1 record and ended up taking the whole bracket on Winner's side in a crazy set with Fujimura. I've never seen somebody land as many air throws as I watched the Beast do onto his opponents tonight.

Merge|Filipino Champ had some very impressive moments with Dhalsim, but ended up being suffocated by the offense of Fujimura, Idom and FD|Haitani as well as the masterful zoning of Infiltration and Daigo.

Daigo and Infiltration gave us one of the most exciting sets in Street Fighter 5 in the Winner's side of bracket play with characters most would not say are normally very exciting, Guile and Menat. Multiple rounds came down to the timer being a factor with a back-and-forth we don't see too often in this title.

Let's lead things off with Daigo sending Infiltration the message that he doesn't play with his food.
