EVO Online 2020 entry numbers revealed
EVO Online 2020 entry numbers have revealed for each individual title making an appearance at the online open event.
Following a two delay extension to the deadline, player registration for EVO Online 2020 came to a close yesterday evening. EVO founder Joey "Mr. Wizard" Cellar has since shared the entry numbers for each game across all three regions.
It comes as no surprise that North America received the highest number of entries for the event. Each title had no less than a thousand participants, with Them's Fightin' Herds at the bottom with 1004 registrations. The biggest game at the list, Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath came up third with 1152, followed by Killer Instinct with 1175, and Skullgirls 2nd Encore topping the list at 1249 players.
European entries for the event were rather low, with most of the games ranging around two hundred participants. Once more, Skullgirls 2nd Encore topped the list with 235, followed by Them's Fightin' Herds at 207 players. The latter beat Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath by just two entrants, while Killer Instinct received only 149 registrations.
The Japan and South Korea region will be the shortest portion of the event, as it only received a total of 100 entrants across three games. Due to how unpopular Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath is in the region, no tournament will be held for it there.
EVO Online 2020 will take place every weekend from July 4 - August 2, with the Top 8 for each game taking place on the same day.
