EVO has grown into a more holistic celebration of fighting games and the community behind it. With that said, the focus continues to be around the competition, which there was no shortage of in its 2012 iteration. If anything, there may have been too much competition to wrap-up on finals day, which didn’t end until 2:30AM EST. Scheduling issues aside, this year’s EVO did not disappoint. Mind-boggling combos were executed, bitter tears were shed, and out of thousands of world warriors in attendance, only 7 earned the title of champion.
