Capcom Pro Tour 2019 schedule and trailer released; updated with multiple tournament date corrections

Update: Capcom has updated their page with a few tournament date corrections and we've since updated the dates in the schedule posted below.

Earlier: Capcom has released a schedule and details for the 2019 Capcom Pro Tour. A trailer has been provided on Capcom's YouTube channel.

As with every new year, Capcom has made some changes to the rules for these events. One thing that hasn't changed is the fact that there will be 32 competitors qualified by the end of the year. One of them is guaranteed to be RB|Gachikun due to Capcom Cup 2018 champion title.

Last year, events were separated into three categories. They were ranking events, premier events, and EVO. This year, EVO has been replaced with the "super premier events."

While winning EVO awarded 1700 points previously, first place finishes at super premiers will now grant players 1,000 Capcom Pro Tour points.

There are currently three super premiers that players will need to be aware of. They are EVO 2019, the Japan Premier, and the North American Regional Final. Note that the Asia, Europe, and South American Regional Finals are premier events, not super premiers.

It was also declared that there will be less online ranking events in 2019 as opposed to 2018. However, Capcom is also redistributing some events for better coverage across different areas. Regions like Australia and the Middle East are now able to compete despite not being able to before.

Like before, a qualifying spot from each region — North America, Asia, Europe, and South America — will be available to whomever wins their Regional Finals event. In total players will be competing for a prize pool that's worth over $600,000.

Although Capcom Pro Tour global points can still be earned at regional finals, competitors will no longer be able to earn Capcom Pro Tour ranking points. This seems to be referring to the rule that only the top eight players from a given region can compete for the guaranteed qualifying spot.
