The biggest fighting game tournament of the year is back for another round. Evolution Championship Series is about to get underway in just a few minutes!!!
With over 6,000 players coming from all around the globe converging on Las Vegas, Nevada, Evo has always been a test of sheer endurance but with the added bonus of being the biggest tournament for many of the pro circuits available, the pressure has certainly increased when it comes to earning the prestigious Evo championship title.
With this potentially being a final hurrah for Ultimate Marvel Vs Capcom 3, there has never been a repeat champion for Marvel at Evo so one question remains: will this weekends event crown the true god of UMVSC3?!!
As the second North American stop on the Tekken World Tour circuit, Evo will be host to the biggest opportunity for the last standing player of this event. This year’s Evo Tekken 7 champion will earn an automatic qualifying spot at the Tekken World Finals later this year in addition to a $6,000 pot bonus!!
Injustice 2 will be making its first appearance at EVO and it is certainly going to be here in a big way!! As the biggest tournament of the Pro Series, players will compete for a chance to earn the highest ranking points available for the season and a chance to take home a piece of the $50,000 pot bonus that will be awarded to the top 8 players of this event!!
The Capcom Pro Tour has also returned to the biggest event of the year with Street Fighter V. With Evo offering the largest global ranking points for the season, anyone who becomes the champion of this years event could potentially solidify their spot at Capcom Cup in December.
Last but not least, Evo 2017 is making history by bringing two of the biggest anime fighters to the main stage with Guilty Gear Xrd: Rev 2 and Blazblue: Central Fiction!! These two behemoth anime franchises will not only will be showcased at Evo but three of the top North American placers for both games will also qualify to represent our country at Arc Revo 2017 in Japan!!
We have only just touched the surface of Evolution 2017 with so much more happening at this years event, you would be remiss to miss out on it!!!
