The Evolution Championship Series 2023 (EVO 2023) is this weekend from August 4. to August 6. in Las Vegas, Nevada. It is one of the biggest esports events of the year and easily the biggest fighting game tournament in the world. This year it is the largest it has ever been. Breaking attendance and participant records.
So here is a neat little summary of everything you'll need to know about EVO 2023.
EVO is the biggest fighting game tournament in the world. Not only is it a hotbed of fierce competition on the grandest stage in the fighting game subsection of esports, but it is also the place to be for any announcements of upcoming fighting games.
Traditionally, EVO is an open double-elimination tournament. Everyone can sign up and compete as long as they pay the entry fee. And after a weekend of grueling matches, the winner of their chosen game is coming out on top.
Unlike other tournaments of its kind, EVO has a legacy and prestige. It attracts thousands of players from all around the world, duking it out to find out who's best. Whoever wins at EVO has the claim to be the best in the world.
It's exciting to watch, especially for a game like Street Fighter 6 goings into its first year of competition. Tekken 7 is in the last year of its almost decade-long run or the miraculous resurgence of Marvel vs. Capcom 3 which is a fan favorite.
If you're into fighting games, you should watch EVO, especially the Grand Finals which are a treat no matter what game.
EVO 2023 Lineup
The largest Evolution Championship Series in history does not disappoint with its lineup. The newly released Street Fighter 6 smashed the previous entry record set by Street Fighter 5 during its debut year and then some.
Street Fighter 6's tournament at EVO will also kick off the Capcom Pro Tour's circuit, being the first Major tournament in this year's competition. Just a little side tangent here, this year Capcom Pro Tour features a $2 Million USD prize pool the largest in the league's history.
Guilty Gear Strive and Tekken 7 are still going strong. And Marvel vs. Capcom 3 managed to set a record for its game after being absent from the EVO Lineup for quite some time.
Dragon Ball FighterZ, KOFXV, and Melty Blood manage to draw respectable competition and Mortal Kombat 11 looks like it is about to warm up for the release of Mortal Kombat 1 later this year.
