Alex and Ed managed to make top 48 though Akuma and Rashid far outnumbered the pack: Street Fighter 5 character usage stats for Game Over

Top 8 action is about to kick off at Game Over 2019 in the Dominican Republic where over 100 world warriors from across the globe showed up competing for Premier Event CPT points just one week after CEO.

Much of Japan's top talent has stuck it out in the western hemisphere with four left remaining in the bracket though we've gone through and collected the character usage statistics for the top 48 players.

Unsurprisingly, Akuma and Rashid dominated the numbers with seven making it into the higher bracket though only two Akuma's and one Rashid actually made top 8 — four of those Rashids finished in the top 16, however.

This is far from the biggest Premier of the year as far as pure entrant numbers go, so each player included in this list had to have at least an overall winning record to make top 48 — 3-2 and above.

We got to see some rarer sightings this weekends in the Dominican Republic as well considering we got to see an Alex, a Nash, an Ed and a F.A.N.G come out ahead in record even if they didn't make it to finals day thanks to the hard work of GAM|Juan Fran, TBK|McEnddy, Vpositivo and FA|Mono respectively.

There are still four players in the top 8 who have busted out more than one character during this event — plus we all know CO|Dogura can still do work with Urien — so it appears as though the hard work of picking multiple options is paying off this time around.
