The regional breakdown looks like this: North America Players who win either a Ranking Event or an Online Event automatically qualify for the Regional Final.Capcom will also cover their flight and hotel to participate in the Regional Finals event.Fans had countless opportunities to engage with the scene through live streams, with events being broadcast virtually every month resulting in record viewership.
Here is the breakdown: If a player is ranked highly on both the global and regional leaderboards, the global leaderboards ranking supersedes the regional point leaderboards.
Below is a rundown of the point distribution for each type of event.
A new season with a brand new game, Street Fighter V, means we’re about to enter a new era of fighting where no one can predict the outcome.
It’s an exciting time to be involved with the scene and we’re equally excited to share many of the changes to the tour structure that we feel will really bring this global community together even more and help us reach new heights never thought possible just a few years ago.
If a player has already qualified for Capcom Cup and wins a Premier Event, it will open up an additional spot on the global leaderboards.
Note that points awarded at Premier Events count towards a player’s global standing and do not count towards their regional standing.
The past two seasons of the Capcom Pro Tour have been nothing short of amazing for anyone who is a fan of Street Fighter.
Players were competing at their absolute prime with the stakes being higher than ever, resulting in some of the most incredible matches we’ve ever witnessed.
