Here Are The 32 World Warriors To Compete At Capcom Cup 2016


The Capcom Pro Tour comes to a close for the year, and the points have been tallied to determine the top 32 players that will be making their way to Playstaion Experience in California, USA to participate in the Capcom Cup. Capcom Cup is the final destination where all these world warriors have been competing in various Capcom-approved events that adds up points with only one game being played: Street Fighter V.

While most really did become world warriors- going around the world to participate in fights just like how the fighters in Street Fighter V are doing- there have been methods of qualifying via online tournaments- a staple for e-sports, but newly instated for this year’s Tour.

The breakdown of the 32 slots to Capcom Cup 2016 goes as follows:

  • 1 EVO Winner
  • 4 Regional Finals Winners
  • 11 Premier Event Winners
  • 8 Global Ranking Points Spots
  • 8 Regional Ranking Point Spots (2 from each region- North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia)

In the event an already qualified player won another event that gives a spot to the Capcom Cup, the additional slot will go to the Global Ranking Points. So players that participated in many events around the world, with consistent results, will go on. Note that the regional finals happened after all the premier events.

With that away, here is the list of qualified players for each slot:

  • EVO Winner: – (RZR Infiltration already qualified)
