The past year and a half has been rough for esports fans. With the ongoing pandemic, it is clear that in-person events cannot be held safely. While this did not affect games that were often played online anyway, such as League of LegendsFighting games were among the hardest hit. Games in this genre are just beginning to widely adopt net-declining code, but there is still a struggle for many fighters to play competitively online. Many people will likely be delighted to hear that EVO 2022 will be an in-person event, returning to Las Vegas, Nevada.
We don’t know much about the event yet. What has been confirmed, however, is that the show will take place over the weekend of August 5, 2022, and be held again in Vegas. Interestingly, it was not mentioned if EVO 2022 will return to the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino, which has housed EVO for several years. Before that, the EVO bounced between several different places on the Vegas strip, making it a logistical nightmare. Mandalay Bay was a great place for EVO so hopefully he can get back there.
The list of games that will be hosted at this event is, of course, still uncertain so far. It would be a safe bet to assume that games like Guilty Gear JahedAnd Street Fighter VAnd Tekken 7, And Dragon Ball FighterZ will return. Whether to include the latest titles, such as The fifteenth king of fightersIt will depend on the release dates. For games with delay-based network code like the above Dragon Ball FighterZ, in addition to other titles such as Samurai ShowdownIt would be great to see these communities compete at their fullest potential once again.

Needless to say, things could have gone better.
