Capcom Pro Tour Online 2020 Central America 1's Street Fighter 5: Champion Edition event will be concluding later tonight. Over 180 players ended up competing at this tournament.

As a result, we've gathered the characters behind the top 64 performing players. This should give us a basic idea on which characters are performing well in this "online meta" that's currently in place.

Akuma once again ended up being the fighter that was the most represented at this event. Despite there being eight players with Akuma as their main, none of them were able to make it into the top eight portion of the bracket.

Guile ended up also being a popular combatant this time around. In total, five players used Guile as their main while one more had him ready as a secondary. Thanks to the efforts of Bandits|Caba, Guile actually managed to make it in the top eight.

Ibuki and Sakura were the only two characters that had more than one representative that made it into the top eight. It's worth mentioning that one of the Sakura users was only using her as a backup character.

It's pretty rare to see F.A.N.G in the top eight, but RR|Mono managed to get him in there. Of course, it's also worth mentioning that Alex was used by three players in the top 64 with a decent amount of success despite the character being seen as weak in the current meta.

Aside from Lucia, Juri, Gill, E. Honda, Menat, Sagat, and Cody, every character in Street Fighter 5 saw at least some representation in the top 64. Having said that, do keep in mind that Ryu and Nash were only pulled out as secondary characters beyond this point.
