As part of the Capcom Pro Tour 2017 Season, Capcom Fighters and LevelUpLive have banded together to bring you the CPT 2017 Online Ranking Events!

These online brackets will cover various regions and will provide opportunities for players to earn CPT Ranking Points, which will boost their standings on both the Regional and Global Leaderboards! These points will determine the players that will be invited to this year’s Capcom Cup invitational this December. Points will be awarded to the Top 16 of each bracket. Winning the bracket will not immediately qualify you for the Capcom Cup as these are not Premier Events.
Naturally, the flagship title for the CPT 2017 Online Ranking Events is Street Fighter V. These tournaments can be played on both the PC and PS4 platforms due to their online cross-play feature. Competitors must be at least thirteen years of age and have at least three megabytes of upload to participate. Each player is only allowed to compete via one account.
As of two days ago, an official schedule for all online events was released on the Capcom Pro Tour website. Check it out:

To sign up, players can go to the CPT Online Smash.GG page and search for the bracket that covers their region. Make sure to provide the correct details for your CFN (your Capcom Fighter’s Network ID for when you log in to SFV) so that the organizers will have no difficulty contacting you. Your CFN, not your PSN ID nor your Steam ID, is what will be used to invite you to lobbies whenever you are to play a match on the official CPT broadcast.
