Evo 2018 : MOUSESPORTS|Problem X is the Champion!
Evolution Championship Series 2018, held from August 3rd through 5th at Las Vegas, NV, USA, has concluded !
Almost 2,500 players from around the world competed at Evolution Championship Series (Evo for short) 2018. Due to the incredible skill level present at the event there are invariably upsets and there are players who are normally a lock for top 8 or at least top 16 that didn’t even break into top 32. Korea’s PG|Infiltration (33rd place) and USA’s GHOST|NuckleDu(97th place) are just two examples this year.
By Sunday evening only 8 players were left standing. MOUSESPORTS|Problem X would make his way to Grand Finals in the Winners bracket after sending Gachikun (3-1) and CYG BST|Fuudo (3-1) to Losers Finals. He would be joined by ECHO FOX|Tokido, who was sent to Losers by Fuudo in Winners Semi-Finals (1-3). Tokido would go on to eliminate RED BULL|Luffy (3-0), Gachikun in Losers Semi-Finals (3-1) and get his revenge on Fuudo by eliminating him in Losers Finals (3-1).
Grand Finals itself was an epic match of wills between two veteran players. Both players clawed for every chunk of damage every round but Tokido came out on top to reset the bracket and bring Problem X down to the Losers Bracket for the final showdown (3-2). Problem X came back with a vengeance and defeat Tokido 3-0. MOUSESPORTS|Problem X from the United Kingdom is the 2018 Evo Champion!
