Seeing as how another month is now behind us, the CFN has released another batch of online stats for the community to study. For the month of January 2020, there were some very interesting things to note.

For the second month in a row, E. Honda ended up being the most successful combatant during online play. Indeed, E. Honda managed to usurp the online throne during December 2020 and has proven that this wasn't just a fluke in January.

Interestingly enough, Vega (Claw) manage to climb to second place when it comes to character match ups. Meanwhile, M. Bison ended up falling from second place to fifth place as Urien and Blanka were also more successful picks during the month of January.

According to the match up chart for January, E. Honda apparently has no losing match ups. Vega is in a similar situation as he only seems to be winning less than 50% of his matches while up against E. Honda.

Once more, the Shoto characters ended up being the popular picks. Ryu, Kage, Ken, and Akuma are apparently being chosen the most frequently in January.

Check out the stats below.
