Inspired by the Capcom Pro Tour, Ultra Arcade co-owner and Kombo Klash organizer Brandon Alexander has announced a Killer Instinct World Cup competitive circuit for 2016 — with a cool $10,000 prize pot for the grand finals.
To enter the Killer Instinct World Cup finals, however, players will have to first earn a qualifying spot. Winning at any of four Kombo Klash tournaments (which includes Kombo Klash Japan) or at EVO for Killer Instinct automatically qualifies a player into the KI World Cup. Outside of those five guaranteed spots, the remaining spots will be awarded to the top 11 players with the most number of ranking points throughout the circuit.
