Every year my friends and I get a little more excited towards summer. Because we know with summer comes one thing. Evolution! Or EVO if you would. Hosted again this year at the Mandalay Bay, players from all over the world come in to show if they have what it takes to win the grand prize. Every year it seems to get bigger and bigger, and this year was no exception. The lines may have been long, but once you got inside you were met with games being played on the big screens and a plethora of small tables to see if you can make it out of pools. 

The winners came out on top, and here is who won this year.
