Evolution Championship Series
Fighting games have long been one of the most tight-knit communities in digital entertainment, and dozens if not hundreds of regional events happen all over the world. But they all lead up to EVO, held every summer in Las Vegas.
The first official EVO happened in 2002, but it dates back to a much smaller competition in Japan. Since then, it has grown into a three-day event that features a growing list of games. The 2019 event will feature Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition, Tekken 7, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Mortal Kombat 11, and many other favorites.
The unique thing about this tournament is that it is open to professional and amateur players, and the community is very welcoming. If you feel like trying your hand, this may be the best chance to make a name for yourself
