Manila Cup 2017 has concluded and is part of the Capcom Pro Tour as an Asia region event, which means, as with all Asia regional events, the amount of talent stuffed into one room will be incredibly dense with a mixture of established top players and skillful unknowns. Aside from the headlining game, tournaments were also held for Tekken 7, Guilty Gear Xrd Rev 2, Injustice 2, Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3, Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, Mortal Kombat X, The King of Fighters XIV, and BlazBlue: Central Fiction.

Streaming was handled by Team Spooky and Playbook PH. As usual, players will be listed in “[sponsor/team name] | [player name] [[characters used]]” format. If you’d like to see the brackets, you can do so here on Challonge.

A pleasant surprise for everyone, Infiltration took the top spot after going through a gauntlet of the best Rashids in the world, and he managed it with Juri, who is a fan favorite character, but is notorious in SFV specifically for being undeniably bottom tier.

More About This Game

Matthew Fetrow

I've been playing video games since 4 years of age, and finally began to deeply invest myself into the world of fighting games in 2015 after many off-and-on encounters with games inside the genre. I have a preference for 3D fighters, but also enjoy Street Fighter, King of Fighters, and some airdashers. I'm also a big fan of RPGs and shmups.
