Capcom & Twitch teaming up for pro Street Fighter league


10:00 AM on 03.10.2014



The Capcom Pro Tour, a yearlong Street Fighter tourney from Capcom and Twitch.tv,  is attempting to provide an infrastructure for professional fighting game play to grow. Not that it hasn't been doing so already. EVO 2013 was the biggest yet.

Still, Twitch FGC Specialist Victor “Victheslik” Denchartphan explains, "The fighting community has always been a huge part of the world of competitive gaming, but has lacked global leagues and structure which other esports communities have benefited greatly from."

The tournament will start with Super Street Fighter IV AE Version 2012 and then transition to Ultra Street Fighter IV after its June release. Doesn't that sort of feel like a sport changing rules mid-season? Then again, is Capcom going to not promote the newest iteration of its game? 

Winning at one of 10 premier events guarantees you a spot in the Capcom Cup. The other six spots will be determined with a point system; place at premier or ranking events, get points.

The current line-up of ranking events includes:

• SoCal Regionals (February 28~March 2, Los Angeles, CA, USA)
• PAX East (April 11~13 – Boston, MA, USA)
• E3 (June 10~12 – Los Angeles, CA, USA)
• San Diego Comic Con (July 24~27 – San Diego, CA, USA)

The current line-up of premier events includes:

• Final Round (March 14~16 – Atlanta, GA, USA)
• NorCal Regionals (April 18~20 – Sacramento, CA, USA)
• Southeast Asia Majors (June 20~22 – Singapore)
• Community Effort Orlando (June 27~29 – Orlando, FL, USA)
• Evolution Championship Series (July 11~13 – Las Vegas, NV, USA)
• The Fall Classic (October 10~12 – Raleigh, NC, USA)
• DreamHack Winter (November 27~30 – Jönköping, Sweden)
