Next week in Las Vegas the Esports Business Summit will take place at the MGM Grand. The Esports Business Summit is a chance for all sides of the esports world to come together in a single place for three straight days of collaboration, talks, conferences and more. Part of those three days also includes the Tempest Awards which will take place at the HyperX Esports Arena on September 11th. Over the next few days leading up to the Tempest Awards we’ll be previewing the various categories.

Our Prediction to Win: Evo 2019
Obviously, the best event of the year out of these is nominees, is EVO 2019. The FGC, is the most electrifying subsection of esports there is. Some of the best moments of the year have come from this singular event. The Dragonball Fighterz Grand Finals Japanese vet Go1 and American phenom SonicFox’s Dragonball Fighters Grand Finals were particularly emotional. The rivalry between the two began when the game released in early 2018 and continued for a year and a half. When Go1 was finally victorious over SonicFox at EVO 2019 the crowd let him know just how much they appreciated his play. And his tearful response let you know just how much the victory meant to him.

Best of EVO 2019

Another EVO has come and gone. The world’s most prestigious fighting game tournament gets bigger every year and in 2019 we of course had 9 games, 10 streams and more than 14 thousand (non unique) entries over three days. If you missed ANY of the action or you’re just in EVO withdrawal like we are, we got you.

The Tempest Awards will take place on September 11th at 8:45 PDT at the HyperX Esports Arena in the Luxor in Las Vegas. You can tune in to watch live at Twitch.tv/CheckpointXP.
