Recency bias is totally a factor.

Velociraptor and I get into who our top 10 Street Fighter 5 players are at this point in time, on the most recent episode of the EventHubs Podcast.

The Capcom Pro Tour is starting to wind down it's 2018 season, and the points available for players are dwindling. As such, we break down the tournament results and skill sets of who we feel the 10 best players are right now.

We're encouraging fans to vote in the poll we've setup on the site right now, so they can tell us who the top players are as well.

John and I also get into the latest news cycle, like Dojo Mode for Street Fighter 5, Armada quitting Super Smash Bros. Melee singles competitions and the reasons why, along with recapping some of the notable things from the SoCal Regionals 2018 tournament, held this last weekend.

X-Kira has reemerged and brought with him an extensive amount of information on new developments to SF5, while Dead or Alive 6 has unsurprisingly started to return to its highly sexual roots, and we also cover Ed Boon's recent statements about how developers sometimes react to seeming character imbalance during the development process.

You can find all these subjects and more below. This is the EventHubs Podcast.
