About the Tour
The CAPCOM PRO TOUR (CPT) is the premier league destination for competitive fighting games. Featuring the latest flagship title of the legendary Street Fighter series, the CPT brings together players and spectators from all over the world to share their love of gaming. With over a dozen official events, and even more independently run tournaments involved, the CPT showcases the very best that competitive gaming has to offer.
Street Fighter V is the featured game for the Capcom Pro Tour 2016 season featuring 16 new and returning characters (with more being released throughout the year) with brand new battle mechanics such as the Variable System and Critical Arts.
Players from across the globe will battle through a yearlong tournament circuit in order to claim one of the 32 qualification spots for the year end Capcom Cup. Players can qualify through any of the methods listed below:
- 11 qualify via Global Premier Events
- 1 is invited from EVO 2016
- 4 qualify via Regional Finals, 1 player from each event
- 8 qualify via regional point leaderboards, top 2 from each region
- 8 qualify via the global point leaderboards.
Players in Capcom-approved tournaments will be granted rankings points based on their results as follows:
|Placing||EVO Tier||Premier (Tier 1)||Ranking (Tier 2)|
Eleven premier events will be granting an automatic qualifying spot to the Capcom Cup to the tournament winner. In addition, these events will also grant tier 1 ranking points to the top 16 players.
Regional Finals are two day events with the first day being an open qualifying bracket with the second day being a 16 man invitational. Day two is composed of Ranking Event and Online Event winners and the top two placers from the day one qualifier. The player who places 1st at the Regional Finals qualifies for Capcom Cup.
We’re excited to have EVO2016 (the largest fighting game tournament in the world) as part of the Capcom Pro Tour once again. Like previous years, the winner of EVO 2016 will be invited to compete in Capcom Cup 2016.
Ranking Events are events where players can earn points that contribute towards their overall ranking. These events grant tier 2 ranking points to the top 16 players. Winners of Ranking Events automatically qualify for their Regional Finals event. For the complete list of Ranking Events please click here.
All Premier Events will be live streamed via the Capcom Fighters Twitch.tv channel. Ranking Events will be live streamed by each respective Tournament Organizer on a channel of their choice. Keep on the lookout for announcements regarding stream times and schedules.
