Looking Back at Evo 2021 Online
Recap of DashFight's coverage of this year's Evo iteration

This month has been so exciting! It brought us back to the unadulterated fun that is Evo. We were reminded just how hype it is to watch the best players from all over the world sort it out between themselves. Yes, this year, we had a massive caveat of the event being held online. And while there were some hiccups here and there with the schedules and the amount of DQs, we couldn’t have reasonably expected more – it’s incredibly challenging to coordinate several tournaments in different games on four continents online. The fact that this Evo 2021 Online was held at all is a massive testament to the determination of the organizers. Moreover, they even altered the prize pools so that Top 8 payments were awarded not per continent but per region. An overall A+ job by the organizers.

Let’s take a look back at everything that happened during the DashFight coverage of Evo 2021 Online!
