The largest fighting game tournament in the world takes place this weekend in Las Vegas, and the Capcom Pro Tour will be there! The winner of this prestigious event will be granted an automatic entry to the year-end Capcom Cup, as well as a ton of ranking points. As EVO is easily the hardest tournament of the year to win, the top 16 competitors will be obtaining a special EVO tier of ranking points. Check out the chart below!
|Player Number||Tournament Placing||Evolution Tier||Tier 1 (Premier Tournament)||Tier 2 (Ranking Show Tournament)||Tier 3 (Online Tournament)|
Even second place at EVO will walk away with a ton of ranking points that will help towards that ticket to Capcom Cup!
If aren’t lucky enough to make the trip out to Las Vegas for the event, never fear! Capcom Fighters will be on-site streaming USFIV pools live via Twitch as they happen from 8am to 4pm PDT on Friday 7/11.
The next day on Saturday 7/12, Capcom will be hosting a special panel at EVO titled the “World of Street Fighter” from 4~5pm PDT. While this won’t be streamed, expect the news and updates about USFIV and the CPT to make waves very quickly!
Finally, Sunday 7/13 will be finals day for EVO. You’ll be able to catch the finals of USFIV at 6pm PDT streamed at the official SRKEVO1 Twitch stream.
Remember, you can also help support the NYU Game Center EVO Scholarship by purchasing the official EVO channel high definition stream!
