EVO 2024 Early Registration: Who Is leading the Charge?

by Elvis Mack

The hype for EVO 2024 taking place in Las Vegas, Nevada has only just begun. Players are looking to make a name for themselves in old titles and some new favorites. However, EVO just released a first look at the leaderboard after the end of early registration. As early registration numbers roll in, trends begin to emerge, painting a picture of this year’s most anticipated matchups.

The Big Three Remains

The top three games at EVO currently are the games who had kept their momentum for a long time with Street Fighter 6 at first, Tekken 8 at second, and Guilty Gear Strive in third. Some may argue that they are surprised that Tekken 8 is not overall number 1, however, given the legacy of Street Fighter and the fact that Capcom Pro Tour has another million dollars on the line. It is no wonder that SF6 is leading the head of the pack once again.

Granblue Fantasy Rising To Fourth Place

To the surprise of many, however, Granblue Fantasy Versus Rising takes the fourth place slot over famous retro title Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike. This game was given a bad hand in 2020 due to the pandemic and while it had a good showing in EVO 2022 a lot of the shine had wore off. Given how the times are now however, Granblue is higher than ever with an already announced pro tour on the way, things are looking great so far.

Mortal Kombat 1 Rocky Start

Mortal Kombat 1 is Seventh in the Leaderboard only behind King of Fighters XV

While registration is from over, many did not see Mortal Kombat ranking in seventh place. Behind lesser known games like Granblue and Under Night In-Birth, many expected it to be in the Top 3. I do not believe it is over for MK1 however, the game has been getting good updates with Krossplay release and DLC character are still releasing at a fast rate. The only issue is the competitive scene at the current moment, as Final Kombat is quickly approaching. However, I think MK1 still has a lot of fights left in the tank, just will take some time to get it right.

EVO 2024 early registration is always a nice chance to gauge the interests of the communities going into the biggest events of the year. They tell us which games to watch and which communities are thriving. It’s not just about the numbers. It’s about the stories they tell and the excitement they promise. Stay tuned as we continue to track the rise of champions and the making of legends moving into EVO 2024.

EVO 2024 takes place at the Las Vegas Convention Center West Hall from July 19-21. Registration is now live on Evo 2024.
