Red Bull Battle Grounds 2017 in Boston, Massachusetts was the setting for this past weekend’s Capcom Pro Tour North American Regional Finals. The seven highest-placing players on the CPT NA leaderboard and one winner from the Last Chance Qualifier held at the same event will clash for a bonus 400 CPT points to either elevate themselves on the CPT standings or further secure the spot they already have, hoping for a guaranteed slot at Capcom Cup.

Street Fighter V will not be the only game present at the event. As Red Bull has close ties to Capcom, they’ll be holding tournaments for Ultra Street Fighter IV, Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike, and Super Street Fighter II Turbo.

Streaming was handled by the Capcom Fighters channel on Twitch. If you’d like to see the full brackets for the event yourself, you can do so here, on Smash.gg.

Despite an impressive showing at the Last Chance Qualifer tournament prior, The Cool Kid93 wasn’t able to make it far in the regional finals, finishing in seventh alongside Echo Fox’s Justin Wong. Brian F and 801 Strider, two of North America’s best Balrogs and Lauras came in fifth, last year’s Capcom Cup champion NuckleDu finished in fourth, Smug in third, iDom in second, and Punk in first.

With his win here, Punk is the only person on the CPT leaderboards to cross the 3000 CPT points milestone, compeltely cementing his number one spot by a large margin from Tokido, this year’s Evo champion, almost 1000 points behind.

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.
