The other way to qualify is by the World Warrior system. Returning for another appearance, but with some new changes. Starting on July 2024 till January, 24 regions including 14 super regions will have various tournaments in their region. The best players from each region will qualify for the regional finals. The winner of each regional final will qualify for Capcom Cup proper. However, this year has Super Regions where the first place players will automatically qualify for Capcom Cup and the remain players from there play in the regional finals. Giving players who are the strongest in their region more chances to qualify ala the World Warrior.

In addition, they made a few changes to the world warrior point rankings, the world warrior system only counts your best 3 events from the 5 possible in each region. So, it’s now possible for players who missed one event due to personal reasons to still have a spot in the finals. On the event of a tie, they will use a tiebreaker to figure out who will take their respective placements.
