|Official website||Evo Website|
The Evolution Championship Series is an annual video game tournament that focuses exclusively on fighting games. In fighting game communities it is commonly referred to as "Evo", and is currently the premier video game tournament for fighting games. The tournament uses the double elimination format. As with Super Battle Opera, the Evolution tournaments are so well known that typically contestants will travel from all over the world to participate, most notably Japan.
Evo was founded by Tom Cannon, also known for his work on Shoryuken.com, a fighting game website. The tournament started as "Battle by the Bay", a 40-man Super Street Fighter II Turbo and Street Fighter Alpha 2 tournament in 1996 in Sunnyvale, California, eventually moving to its recurring venue in Las Vegas. The event changed its name to Evo in 2002. Over time, the tournament grew, recording over one thousand participants in 2009.
Originally the tournament used arcade cabinets, but in 2004 the decision was made to move all games over to their console versions, to no small amount of controversy. Now all games are played on a PlayStation 3.
Traditionally, Evo has only included fighting games, but in 2006 it included Mario Kart DS in its lineup. Aside from the official tournaments, there is also a "BYOC" (bring you own controller) area in which many different games are played and side tournaments are held.

Evo 2010 
Evo 2010 featured outrageous numbers, with Super Street Fighter 4 amassing approximately 1800 players to duel for a $20,000 guaranteed prize pot. Most notable in this EVO was EG Justin Wong cementing his dominance in Marvel Vs. Capcom 2 in its proverbial swan song, defeating the champion of the previous year, EMP Sanford Kelly. Also notable was Wong failing to make the Top 8 in Super Street Fighter 4, falling victim first to BLG Vance "Vangief" Wu, and soon after to Taiwanese player Bruce "GamerBee" Hsiang. Melty Blood: Actress Again was included after a Players Choice Poll on Shoryuken.com to decide on the final game of the tournament, beating out Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike, Capcom vs. SNK 2, Marvel vs. Capcom 2, Soul Calibur IV, and King of Fighters XII. BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger was to be included, but after a majority of the community moved on to BlazBlue: Continuum Shift, the decision was made to replace it with Marvel vs. Capcom 2. Also notable was G4's limited coverage of the event, even offering X-Play host Adam Sessler for commentary of the Super Street Fighter 4 finals.

Evo 2011 
For Evo 2011, a tournament season was announced in which players could earn ranking points at one of eight tournaments. It took place at the Rio Las Vegas from July 29 to July 31, utilizing a 55,000-square-foot (5,100 m2) ballroom. All 50 states of the U.S. were represented, as well as 44 additional countries. On July 25, 2011, it was announced that PlayStation Home users could watch a live stream of the tournament. In attendance was Street Fighter series producer Ono Yoshinori, who announced a free balance patch for Super Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition. Tekken series producer Katsuhiro Harada was also on hand to show new mechanics for Tekken Tag Tournament 2 and Soul Calibur V. Other unreleased games shown were Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3, King of Fighters XIII and Skullgirls. A Skullgirls side tournament was held in which the winner received a one-of-a-kind Skullgirls-themed arcade stick. Media outlets G4, GameSpot and Destructoid were all present to cover the event. Evo 2011 was the most viewed event in its history, its livestream watched by over 2 million unique viewers on UStream over the course of the event.
The event was notable in that Daigo Umehara failed to win a third Street Fighter IV title. Umehara was first knocked into the loser's bracket by Poongko, then eliminated by Latif.
A notable occurrence in the Marvel vs. Capcom 3 tournament was the success an eight-year-old named Noah Solis, whose team included Hulk, Sentinel and Albert Wesker. Solis's performance included a perfect round in less than ten seconds. Solis was eventually eliminated by Mortal Kombat finalist Chris G. In an interview with Giant Bomb, Solis's father, Moises Solis, spoke of how he intends to support his son's success in fighting games, citing video games as one way alongside education to avoid falling into gang culture.
