"The Beast" Daigo claims CPTA Taiwan, moves on to Asia Finals with Gamerbee

The action on the Capcom Pro Tour Asia circuit continued in Taiwan, as players around the region battled it out to qualify for the Asia Finals, taking place in Singapore in October. Top players such as MCZ|Daigo, AVM|GamerBee, RZR|Xian and CCG|Humanbomb were in attendance along with many others. Both Xian and Humanbomb had already qualified for the Asia Finals via the China and Korea qualifiers respectively, but were still in the hunt for even more CPT ranking points as well as prize money. It was the "The Beast" MCZ|Daigo who emerged victorious in the end, absolutely demolishing the competition and barely dropping any games along the way. Daigo and Gamerbee both move on to the Asia Finals, with only the Singapore qualifier remaining now.

BE|Nemo defeats all challengers at Westcoast Warzone

Over in Orange, CA, USA, one of the classic Southern California majors, Westcoast Warzone, returned after a long hiatus. Some of the best players on the West coast, including many of the local Wednesday Night Fights players, attended the tournament in an attempt to protect their house from the top Japanese Rolento, BE|Nemo. Widely considered to be one of the best players in Japan, Nemo wasted no time in showing the world why he is a force to be reckoned with through his tricky Rolento play. His victory at the event nets him 128 CPT ranking points and a solid placing on the leaderboards.
