Capcom Pro Tour Online 2017

Capcom Pro Tour Online 2017

Level Up is teaming up with Capcom to produce the Capcom Pro Tour Online 2017 Ranking events starting this April 29!  After reviewing feedback from last year’s online tour, we have made massive adjustments to ensure the best possible online experience. Capcom has expanded the tour to 16 events which are now within reasonable proximity range to your local regions. We are also excited to run the entire tour without tournament caps on SmashGG which is our platform of choice and commonly used at major events. Players will be able to register, communicate, report their matches, and see their ranking points on the Capcom Pro Tour Online SmashGG landing page at their convenience.

To register for your local online event, visit the official CPTO2017 landing page at https://smash.gg/cpto2017
