Punk hosted an Eleven only Street Fighter 5: Champion Edition tournament — Here are the highlights in a single video

PG|Punk recently hosted a tournament in Street Fighter 5: Champion Edition where all entrants were locked into using Eleven — a character that essentially functions as the game's random select feature.

To be truly successful at this event, players had to be lucky in addition to being skilled at the game. Even if a competitor rolled a character that they were comfortable with, there was still a possibility that they could get a less optimized V-Skill and V-Trigger combination.

Throughout the matches, Punk and END|Shine provided commentary as the competitors sought to prove who was the best at going random. The competitors included big names like Rise|Smug, CJ Truth, Bandits|Mena, Psycho and more.

The commentators ended up being surprised at each player's versatility with characters that they don't typically play. For example, who would've guessed that Smug can actually play a competent Falke?

Funnily enough, Dan showed up several times during the tournament. Of course, rolling the Master of the Saikyo Style didn't typically work out for the controlling player.

Check out all the highlights from the charity tournament in the video below:
