Hi all Capcom Pro Tour competitors and fans! For the first time in Capcom Cup history, we’re holding a Last Chance Qualifier for Capcom Cup 2017. The winner of that Last Chance Qualifier will take the final available spot in Capcom Cup.
Capcom Cup 2017 matches will take place December 8th and 9th at the Anaheim Hilton Hotel. Spectators are free to attend for those first two days. The Capcom Cup 2017 finals will be held at PlayStation Experience (PSX) in the Anaheim Convention Center. Spectators will need a PSX pass in order to attend the finals day.
The Last Chance Qualifier will be held on December 8th. The online entry fee is $20 and players will receive a free t-shirt with their registration.
Registration is open now at: smash.gg/tournament/capcom-cup-sfv-last-…
The event is capped at 256 players. Online registration will close November 29th.
Players will be able to register on-site December 7th from 5pm-9pm, the day before the event, for $40. All on-site entrants will be placed in the same pool so you might want to register as soon as possible to avoid being thrown in the “death pool.”
Tournament check in on Friday, December 8th is 9am-11am, with the tournament beginning at 11am.
Some notable players who have already registered for the Last Chance Qualifier include:
We have a spacious ballroom lined up in the Anaheim Hilton Hotel, where we’ll have two stages, plenty of casual set-ups, and kiosks with various Capcom games to demo.
We will also have some of our official Capcom licensed partners in attendance with tons of merchandise for purchase, including Nsurgo, Eighty-Sixed, Split Frame, the Capcom Store, and many more!
In regards to Capcom Cup 2017 itself, we are still finalizing some details such as the schedule, but we will update with a schedule as soon as possible.
After some discussion about using a group format for Top 32, we decided to stick with the traditional bracket format using the leaderboard points as seeding. We have been sticking with the traditional ranking throughout CPT 2017 and wanted to maintain consistency for the finals this time. However, we are still actively evaluating it as an option for next year.
We look forward to another amazing event at Capcom Cup, especially with one last finals spot up for grabs in the Last Chance Qualifier.
Thank you for your support and participation on the Capcom Pro Tour this year.
