It's been announced over at Capcom Unity that the Capcom Cup 2017 Last Chance Qualifier registration is now live. This is certainly one of the most important tournaments for the Capcom Pro Tour.

Whoever wins this tournament will be given a guaranteed spot on the Capcom Cup. A number of players are gunning for this final spot, so there's definitely a lot on the line here.

Players that are already signed up include GRPT|MOV, GRPT|Infiltration, XsK_Samurai, Tempo|Alex Myers, AW|Nemo, LPN, EG|Ricki Ortiz, Infused|Imstilldadaddy, and stormKUBO. Remember that players that are already qualified are not allowed to compete in this tournament.

In other words, there will be no participants that are only there for the sake of gatekeeping. All the competitors mentioned above are currently not qualified.

Among these contenders, only one of them can potentially qualify at this point. It's hard to imagine seeing a big tournament like Capcom Cup without a number of these individuals.
