Two Capcom Pro Tour Online events took place this past weekend, with a level of character diversity we haven't seen in a while

Capcom Pro Tour events this year have had a level of consistency this year when it comes to fighter choices in top 16. We have seen certain characters separate from the rest of the cast as top tiers and frequent picks.

This consistency has been demonstrated across most events with the top 16 being littered with a majority of the top combatants in Street Fighter 5. This past weekend we saw a change from the normal with more diversity in fighter choices.

Ken, a character long thought to no longer be that good, was prominent across both Capcom Pro Tour Online events. Seeing a non-Akuma Shoto combatant place so high is refreshing.

Cammy was another well used character this past weekend. Strong usage across the two events bodes well for her future in the current season of SF5.

We also saw cameo appearances from mostly non-placing fighters when it comes to the top 16 of events such as Ed, F.A.N.G, Vega, and more. Is this just a small sample size, or the start of a trend of lower tier characters becoming more used?

Take a look and see who was the most used in each Capcom Pro Tour Online event. Who do you think will continue to see high usage rates out of the lower tier combatants?
