The 2016 Capcom Pro Tour was announced in late December 2016. It marks the switch between Ultra Street Fighter IV to Street Fighter V. It featured the same amount of prize money as Capcom Pro Tour 2016 with a total of $500,000 USD. [2]

Season DetailsEdit

The event would feature 12 premier events and four regional finals which would have the winner of each event auto-qualify for the Capcom Cup finals in Anaheim. A new rule was added that if a player that has already qualified wins an event, the spot would be passed down to the Global Points. Eight players will qualify via Regional Points. Ranking events would have the winner qualify for the respective regional finals. [3]

ControversiesEdit

After three months of the Capcom Pro Tour, Capcom announced a rule instituting a ban on representation of pornographic sponsors. This mainly centered around Team YP and its players Valmaster and Filipinoman. [4] This would later extend to sponsors that would promote alcohol, vaping, and tobacco. This also resulted in The Steam Company disbanding their eSports team. [5][6] However according to Capcom's Neidel "Haunts" Crisan, the Bud-Light All-Stars program was greenlit meaning Ryan "Filipino Champ" Ramirez was able to represent it. [7]

During the Combo Breaker ranking event in mid-2016, well known FGC player Noel Brown was caught groping an unnamed woman. Combo Breaker TO, Rick "TheHadou" Thiher instituted a two-year ban on Mr. Brown making him unable to attend the yearly event until 2018, where he'll be re-evaluated. [8] EVO TO, Joey "Mr. Wizard" Cuellar would later ban Brown from the 2016 edition of EVO, as well as Capcom prohibiting him from competing for the rest of the 2016 Pro Tour. [9] This ban would later extend to other games such as Killer Instinct, as Ultra Arcade owner Brandon Alexander announced a ban on Brown from competing in the Killer Instinct World Cup until 2018 in addition to him being stripped of his sponsorship. [10]
