Street Fighter V stage banned from competition ... by Capcom

Apparently the DLC stage is a bit too disorienting. 


Capcom has banned another Street Fighter V DLC map it created from being used in competition.

The Skies of Honor stage, which launched on November 8, will not be used in either the Capcom Cup 2016 competition or the Capcom pro Tour 2017 season because it is "too distracting," according to a tweet from Capcom Fighters. The stage  takes place on the wings of Rashid's plane as it flies over Dubai.

Some players have mentioned the stage could cause motion sickness to some competitiors during play.

This marks the second DLC stage to be banned from official competition. Kanzuki Beach, which launched in DLC on July 1, has low flying projectiles that are hard to see because of water, making the map potentially troublesome for some players. In addition, the training stage, The Grid, has also been banned.

      Why is training stage banned? Not good looking enough for their image? =\

        Partly that, and partly that the best guys use the floor markings in the training stage to measure distance, which seems like kind of weird crutch for competition play.

        Because it's boring. Doesn't convey the spirit of the game either, especially to newcomers.

      I saw that stage on Sabin's stream last night and knew it wouldn't make it. I was actually getting a little nauseous watching it
