Qualifying Information:

Tournament Format:

The top 24 KI World Cup points earners and Kombo Klash Champions will solidify their spot in the finals bracket.
4 additional spots are being held for international qualifiers!  The first of which is Kombo Klash Japan!
The final 4 spots are reserved for last chance qualifiers on site at the KI World Cup itself! Thats right, even if players don’t have enough points to qualify, they can still show up, compete in a last chance qualifier, and make their way into the final bracket and the money! These last chance qualifiers will come in the form of four brutal single elimination brackets. Players are free to compete in all four of them to try to earn their spots in the finals!

Tournaments and Point Distributions:

As the premier Killer Instinct tournaments, Kombo Klash tournaments will be the most prominent tournaments for qualification. The winner of every Kombo Klash directly qualifies for the World Championship and the top 16 players receive maximum ranking points (see chart for point distribution).

As the next largest major tournament, Evolution Championship Series will also have its champion directly qualify for the World Cup. The top 16 placing players will receive substantial ranking points (see chart for point distribution).

Other specifically sanctioned major fighting game tournaments will also receive ranking points for their top 24 players in Killer Instinct (see chart for point distribution).

Finally, specifically sanctioned online tournaments will receive minimal ranking points for their top 24 players (see chart for point distribution).
