This from Mr. Wizard:

“With 2013 rapidly approaching, we thought it was time to let you in for the date and location for Evo’s World Finals for next year.  The Evolution 2013 Main Event will be held on July 12-14, 2013 at the fabulous Paris Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The Evolution Championship Series represents the largest and longest-running fighting game tournaments in the world. Evo events bring together the best of the best from around the world in a dazzling exhibition of skill and fun, as players and fans gather to honor the competitive spirit in an open format and determine a champion.”

While EVO is a while off yet, now is the time when the FGC cranks things up a gear or two as we enter the pre-EVO tournament season. In the coming months we will see a swathe of tournaments and EVO qualifiers emerge all around the world as the strongest players jockey for seeding points or focus on levelling up as part of their preparation for EVO.

I have no doubts that 2013 will be just as intense as the years before and I’m personally curious to see just how much EVO raise the bar; as with each passing year, EVO only continues to get better and better.
