Twelve additional spots will be given to those players with the highest total points rankings at the end of the tour, including points gained at Saga events and Tenkaichi Events.

 

Tenkaichi Events will be offline events spanning the globe, allowing players to compete for points and climb the rankings. Further details of these events will be revealed soon. Players can register to take part in the first Tenkaichi Event, CEO, here.

 

The final spot will be given to one player at the Last Chance Qualifier, hosted in France the day before the Grand Final.
