A Quick Introduction to Evolution World Finals
If you?re new to the fighting game scene and Evo is something that is new to you, here?s a very brief primer: As the world?s largest open fighting game tournament, the Evolution Championship Series has grown into a global event attracting thousands of competitors of the highest caliber from all over the world seeking victories, cash prizes, and community respect. For more than a decade, the tournament is where new talent emerges as champions, and where reigning champions grow into legends.
However, in recent years, Evo has evolved (no pun intended) into something more. It?s where community members and players ranging anywhere from the casual gamer and spectator to the hardcore tournament junkie can gather en masse and connect to meet in person, learn about the newest fighting game titles and hardware, witness the history in the making, and most importantly, throw down against opponents from all over the world. No matter who you ask, they?ll all tell you the same thing: If there?s only one event you can attend, Evolution is the tournament you will not want to miss.
