EVO is one of the biggest fighting game tournament events in the world, and it’s adopting an online format this year as we still battle against the COVID-19 pandemic. EVO 2021 Online is set to begin soon, so let’s dig into everything you need to know about the event.

Where to watch EVO 2021 Online

      Hot garbage that they are only streaming top 8 then top 4. That's not what makes EVO special... I know making online tournaments work and streaming them is more difficult but if streamers like TeamSp00ky and less production heavy streamers like yipes, cloud805, and bum can stream a tournament all day of 100, 200 man brackets it just shows that Sony/Playstation doesn't fully know what EVO represents for the FGC.
