Out of all of the competitive regions for Street Fighter 5: Champion Edition in the world, China's is probably the one we see the least often here in the West, so it's always interesting to see how they're approaching the title at a top level.

Now that China's Capcom Pro Tour event has reached its top 8 competitors, we've dug into which characters made the biggest impact so far, and there's certainly a couple standouts in the crowd.

Among the top 32 combatants, Cammy was somewhat unsurprisingly the most popular choice although only DouyuTV|Xiao Hai was able to successfully pilot her into the top 8.

We'll be seeing quite a lot of the second guy though considering three out of the four Urien mains did make it to finals day in one of the rarer times we've had more than two of the same fighter in the same CPT top 8 this season.

There were 21 main selections and 23 characters at least in total that saw play in the top 32, so beyond those top two picks there's still a wide spread in character variety that's kinda been the name of the game here in 2021.

It'll be interesting to see BadJuri's Juri and GZDojo|Joeyangho's Chun-Li fare during finals as well since they don't often get to share in the spotlight during big competitions.
