No Cammys but the entire Urien and Laura armies showed up to play for the CPT East Europe & Middle East Street Fighter 5 event

Pocket Poison seems to be a thing now

After a week off, official Street Fighter 5: Champion Edition action is back with the final chance to make it into Capcom Cup for players in eastern Europe and the Middle East, bringing out some of the strongest competition we rarely get to see live.

With day one wrapped and finals getting underway for the Capcom Pro Tour event, we've gathered the full character usage statistics for all of the top 64 with some surprisingly consistent results.

Urien and Laura ended up as the most popular this weekend which makes sense considering they make up five of the top 8 competitors though they are the only overlap.

No other character was used primarily by more than three players which is pretty great for diversity, as 32 of SF5's 40 fighters made an appearance in top 64.

The only eight left out of the action in the upper brackets this weekend are Cammy, Nash, Falke, Ken, Blanka, F.A.N.G, Ibuki, R. Mika which is a bit surprising considering the Killer Bee's strong results and representation in other CPT events this Summer.

We've gotta go all the way back to July 4th in South America to find the last time a Cammy player didn't make top 8.

One third of the characters represented were also selected as secondary choices. That's pretty cool as well to see more players building their catalog of fighters for tournaments, especially now that we're this far into SF5's life cycle.
