Only three characters didn't make it into the top 64 of EGX 2018's Street Fighter 5 bracket

Zeku is definitely getting more popular

It's not always that we see such a large scale event completed on Saturday, but EGX 2018 is prepping for Sunday's eight man finale that will determine the European representative for the Capcom Pro Tour Regional Finals.

We had a strong turnout as European players vied for position at their last chance for local points, and the turnout was quite varied in terms of character usage.

We've broken down how many times each fighter appeared in the top 64 of EGX and found some interesting results. While Cammy continues her reign as most popular, Zeku actually finished hot on her heels with a very close second place.

If a player used an additional character for certain match ups we included them in secondary counters marked in parenthesis. Zeku and Cammy were both used by five players, but Cammy had two pocket appearances whereas Zeku only had one.

We'd also like to point out that only three characters did not make it into this part of today's bracket. We won't spoil which three they are as you can view the entire breakdown below.

Finally, you may notice this only adds up to a total of 63 characters. We could not find the information for the player named Cross Counter, who tied for 49th.
