Another week, another tournament win for Luffy
Tell us if this story sounds familiar: a high level Ultra Street Fighter IV tournament takes place in Europe with CPT points on the line, and Luffy is there to win it. Yes, it did indeed happen again, this time at Gigacon in Norway, as Luffy once again proved that no one in Europe can touch him when it comes to the current incarnation of the game. Luffy's greatest threat, Ryan Hart, actually fell to Phenom this time around in Loser's Finals, and the M.Bison player gave a valiant effort against the French EVO Champ, but to no avail. Luffy cleans up another 128 CPT ranking points and adds another tournament win to his growing list of victories.

Xian continues his impressive run at the CPT Asia Singapore Qualifiers
Far away in Singapore, a similar, albiet slightly less dominant player also made his mark again on the CPT circuit. The last qualifying leg of the Capcom Pro Tour Asia series powered by Razer took place at the Tough Cookie venue in Singapore. While Xian had already qualified for the Asia Finals taking place at the end of the month, he was not content to rest on his laurels as he chased those CPT points in order to guarantee his entry to the Capcom Cup. Battling his way through the entire tournament in winners, he dispatched of both Leslie, an extremely strong Sagat player, and later his teammate Gackt in Grand Finals. With Xian winning the tournament, the final 2 qualification spots for the Asia finals went to Gackt and Leslie. They'll need to step up their game if they hope to defeat Xian there though, as he has been looking unstoppable in the past few months.
