CPT Asia Finals 2014 Results: "The Beast" Qualifies for Capcom Cup

CPT Asia Finals 2014 Results
One question that has been on everyone's mind throughout the CPT circuit this year has been, "Will Daigo qualify for Capcom Cup?" Despite his impressive arcade record in Japan as the #1 ranked player in the country, the player known as the "The Beast" had failed to make a substantial dent on the CPT circuit until now. That all changed this past weekend at the Capcom Pro Tour Asia Finals presented by Razer. Taking place in Singapore at the Gamestart Convention, 8 of the top players from around Asia had qualified through a gauntlet of events in order to make it to this final tournament. With a special round robin format in place, the winner was guaranteed a spot at Capcom Cup in December along with the last batch of ranking points available on the tour.

But make no mistake about it, this tournament was all about Daigo and his utter dominance over the field through the use of Evil Ryu. Daigo ran through all his opponents, falling only to Poongko in the round robin stages. The final match versus Xian was a best of 7 affair, but Daigo's excellent space control and explosive damage quickly sealed the deal 7-2. With his victory here, Daigo has silenced his doubters and put the rest of the world on notice ahead of December.
