Android 16 and Gotenks are everywhere in Dragon Ball FighterZ while Hwoarang and Alisa are seen the most in Tekken 7 at SCR2018

SoCal Regionals 2018 character usage in the top 32 of Dragon Ball FighterZ and top 48 of Tekken 7

It's the final day of the SoCal Regionals 2018 tournament. This was a pretty major event as there were over 250 participants playing Street Fighter 5: Arcade Edition while nearly 200 were signed up for Dragon Ball FighterZ and Tekken 7.

Here's another opportunity to gauge which characters are performing well in the tournament scene based on how commonly they're being used in the top portion of the brackets. For Street Fighter 5, we saw there were plenty of Cammy, Rashid, Akuma, and R. Mika in the top 64.

As for Dragon Ball FighterZ, it seems like things are slowly starting to shift after the patch that went live shortly after EVO 2018. Although FOX|SonicFox was spotted using Nappa yesterday with great results, there are only two other players in the top 32 who are also making use of the bald Saiyan.

It seems Gotenks and Android 16 have become the most frequently used combatants in the game. Each character has been represented by twelve different players in the top 32. Meanwhile, Cell and Bardock lag behind with seven competitors using them.

Tekken 7 also recently had a patch drop. We're now in Season 2 for the game, so characters like Dragonuv and Devil Jin have — so far — disappeared from the top 48.

Hwoarang and Alisa are now being used the most frequently with some degree of success for this event. Meanwhile, Jack-7, Jin, Akuma, Bryan, and Lucky Chloe have three players using them each.
