Character stats for Capcom Pro Tour US/Canada West reveal some rare Street Fighter 6 picks making it very far in the bracket

The Capcom Pro Tour 2023 season is now fully underway with more players than ever signing up for the online events to try to punch their ticket to the Street Fighter 6 finals for a chance at the $2 million prize pool.

Now that the first day of action for CPT US/Canada West has wound down for the first day, we've gone back and gathered up the stats to see some surprising character picks making it to the top 8 of the stacked bracket.

One thing that isn't a surprise, however, is seeing JP being the most popular main fighter of the top 32 with 5 taking him far including our own Velociraptor and EG|SonicFox — but only Reynald managed to bring him to the top 16.

Ken's right up there too at 4 main picks alongside Chun-Li and Marisa though that doesn't tell the full story of this event.

We've got both a Zangief and Jamie / Rashid player in the top 8 winner's side for maybe the first time in a tournament this big so far thanks to Snakey Eyez and JB respectively.

There were a total of 13 characters who saw main play in the top 32 here, so that leaves out Ryu, Lily, Dhalsim, E. Honda and Guile out of the results completely.

Since there were almost a whopping 630 players signed up for this event here, that means our stats here represent the top 5% competitors who made it this far.

You can check out the full character breakdown for the top 32 at CPT US/Canada West below.
