The release would be two days before the start of the tournament and with a new character and new changes many were curious of the fate of Street fighter 6. However, with this and Beatrix also releasing on Combo Breaker week it is hard not to feel like the call would have been hard to make no matter which way they decide to take it. So, the tournament organizers decided to poll the players in the tournament and let them decide how they wanted to play in the bracket. The answer? Let it, Rock.
