Texas Showdown 2019 is one of the main ongoing tournaments this weekend. Since this was a Capcom Pro Tour ranking event, there are over 140 entrants competing.

Notably players present at the event includes Mouz|Problem X, EG|Ricki Ortiz, EQNX|Brian_F, Rise|K-Brad, CJ Truth, SK|CoolKid93, Tempo|Alex Myers, RB|Snake Eyez, and many more. Let's take a moment to analyze which characters proved to be the most successful at making it into the top 32.

Interestingly enough, Balrog was the most popular fighter in the top 32. Four players managed to punch out the competition with this fierce boxer.

It seems that Cammy isn't quite out for the season though. Although there were three competitors that mainly used her, FOX|NuckleDu played her as a secondary while being the only Guile main at this stage of the bracket.

Strangely, F.A.N.G's popularity was equal to that of M. Bison and Rashid's. There were a total of three users for each of these combatants.

Unfortunately, Ryu, Sagat, Zeku, Nash, Sakura, Vega, and other fan favorites were unused in the top 32. Surprisingly, there were also no Akuma or Karin players despite their success in the season so far.
