MK 11 Pro Kompetition 2020/2021 Top 8(ish) Character Usage

A new Pro Kompetition is upon us and that means its time for me to once again count every time a character is used in one of the (many, many) online tour event top 8s (and occasionally top 4, depending on what is streamed) Also, remember that this is just for fun and I failed math several times in several different ways in college, if something doesn't add up completely or seems off...its because I am big dumb.

Hey y'all I was bored and had some extra time so I tossed a little player guide in the first comment under OP! Its nothing too in depth...just a list of which players have made top 8 in their region, how many times, what characters they have used, and who has won what in each region!

(Note that some players have an 'N/A' where their characters should be...this is because a couple of regions only had their top four streamed)
 
Updated OP and first comment to reflect Interkontinental Kombat week #2!!! I tried a new way of moving my notes from my word program into here to speed up my editing. 1.) It ended up being slower and 2.) it ended up fucking a bunch of things up that required my diligent fixing. SO...if anything looks super fucked or wrong or (hopefully not) just plain missing, it will all be fixed next week when I punch in the notes for NA East and West #2!!!
 
So the following characters have won a Pro Komp event so far:
Jacqui, Scorpion, Cetrion, Kung Lao, Joker, Fujin, Erron Black, Sindel, Kotal Kahn, Noob, Frost, Shao Kahn.

Also, Kano and Kabal continue to be two of the least-picked characters, despite people raging about them being OP postpatch.

Imo it's an interesting mix that shows diversity in playstyle. I'm curious to see what happens this weekend :)

Honestly the character diversity has been crazy and the number of top used characters vs. the number of wins they've bagged is insanely different from the first pro comp. I'll admit to fast forwarding through a few Jacqui mirrors, but other than that...these matches have been absolutely top notch.
