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 19 official events, and even more independently run tournaments involved, the CPT showcases the very best that competitive gaming has to offer.
Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition is the featured game for the Capcom Pro Tour 2018 season featuring 26 new and returning characters (with more being released throughout the year) with exciting battle mechanics such as the Variable System, featuring the all-new V-Trigger II, 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:
- 1 is invited from the Capcom Cup 2017
- 26 qualify via the Global Ranking Point Leaderboard
- 4 qualify via Regional Finals

Players in Capcom-approved tournaments will be awarded rankings points based on their results as follows:
Premier Events award ranking points to the top 48 players. These points are tracked on the Global Ranking Point Leaderboard.
Ranking Events award ranking points to the top 8 players. These points are tracked on the Global Ranking Point Leaderboard and the Regional Ranking Point Leaderboard associated with each player.
We’re excited to have EVO2018 (the largest fighting game tournament in the world) as part of the Capcom Pro Tour once again. This event awards ranking points to the top 192 players. These points are tracked on the Global Ranking Point Leaderboard.
Regional Finals will include an open tournament, allowing a player from any region to compete for Global Leaderboard points, prizing, and Regional Leaderboard points (only for players in that region.) The Regional Finals Top 8 is restricted to only the top players from the respective region.
Top 8 Finals participants and seeding will be decided based on Regional Leaderboard points after the Regional Open Premier tournament and will take place the following day. The winner of the Regional Finals Top 8 will automatically qualify for Capcom Cup.
