Evolution Championship Series
Every day, gamers move further and further away from reality. Yes, this is a really good time for us because we get to sit at home all day and have fun playing whatever we want. Social distancing doesn’t seem that bad.
However, the quarantine will cause a change in the EVO 2020. This is a very famous tournament for gamers! They had to show up in Mandalay Bay Last Vegas for the event. Seems like the event has a slight change in its plans. This year, it will be an online-only championship.
Why? Because the people around us are dying. Coronavirus has pushed back the Olympics, Japan is devastated. For our own safety, we must follow these rules and have been relieved. EVO is at least still happening!
The lineup for EVO 2020 is listed below:
- Street Fighter 5: Champion Edition
- Tekken 7
- Granblue Fantasy Versus
- Super Smash Bros. Ultimate
- Dragon Ball FighterZ
- Marvel Vs Capcom 2 (Invitational) for Tournament of Champions
- Under Night In Brith
- Soulcalibur VI
- Samurai Shodown
This was the previously confirmed line up for the tournament. We don’t know whether the online event will have the same games or not.
Are you excited? I really hope there are some newcomers, it’s always fun to watch new rising gamers. Regulars are just as good too!
EVO 2020: When Will It Take Place?
It was scheduled to take place this year in late summer- 31st July to 2nd August. Once the situation around the world worsened, some changes were obviously made.
The people who had already booked for their tickets and hotels are being refunded at the moment. If there are any more changes, the information will be up in the official EVO site, but for now, this was all we knew.
The video is up on the official page, go have a look over YouTube to keep your spirits high. If you are participating, I really hope you make it. Other than that, make some friends over the online gaming event to vibe with once it is over. Maybe you’ll find some friends to play with after the event is over.
