Capcom has released details for this year's Pro Tour, and both the event and the prizes have gotten bigger.
The number of premier events for the year has increased to 16, with three regions—North America, Europe and Asia—all receiving four tournaments while four more Wild Card spots will try to round out global presence. In addition, the number of players at Capcom Cup will be increasing to 32 players for 2015, with the top 15 competitors on the point leaderboard invited as well as the winners of the premier events.
Most significantly, however, is the increase in the prize pool for the Capcom Pro Tour 2015. Half a million dollars will be at stake throughout the year, with $50,000 added to Evolution 2015 and $250,000 added to Capcom Cup.
