UPDATE: Due to conflicting dates within the LATAM region, the LATAM South 2 Online Ranking Event has been moved to August 25.

Capcom Pro Tour 2018 is in full gear and with our tournament schedule finalized, we can now reveal the dates and details for CPT Online Ranking Events, starting April 14 in Latin America.

Once again, CPT Online Ranking Events will take place in North America (NA), Europe (EU), Asia (AS), and Latin America (LATAM). There will be four online events per region, which will be split into two events per sub-region, for a total of 16 events.

Earning points are important and we’re excited to offer another opportunity for players to compete on the Capcom Pro Tour without having to travel to events around the world. CPT Online Ranking Events will follow a similar structure to CPT Ranking Events, including using the same point distribution model.
