Skullgirls proves exceptionally popular in Evo Online
Skullgirls: 2nd Encore draws a larger crowd than Killer Instinct and Mortal Kombat 11
Evo Online closed its registration just yesterday and it seems that the most entered game for the whole period was Skullgirls: 2nd Encore, despite a few issues that came up along the way. A total of 1,525 competitors from all competitive regions registered, which competes with the normal numbers seen in bigger titles part of Evo events. Other games in the ranking that attracted several people were Killer Instinct and Mortal Kombat 11, just to name a few.
The game reported a solid win; both Killer Instinct and Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath are widely popular and, yet, Skullgirls was able to beat them both. The overall numbers for most games were actually good, even newer games like Them’s Fightin’ Herds registered over 1,000 players, as well. However, the turnout for Skullgirls was surprising.
Not so long ago, the organization decided to cancel the main event due to the impact of the coronavirus pandemic, so the Evo team announced that only four titles would be hosted with open brackets. None of those four events were part of the original itinerary of the Evo 2020 lineup, and yet they had great numbers to report. Even though those numbers are not yet close to the bigger titles that run in the Evo main stage each year, every single game had a good outcome, especially across the North American region.
The next event on the calendar begins in just a few days with Them’s Fightin’ Herds. The Evo event for this tournament is scheduled for July 4-5. Evo Online is a popular tournament organizer that runs tournaments with free registration and its latest season started on June 5.
