Events Selected to Receive $10,000 Pokken Pot Bonus from EVO
Back in January, the EVO Player’s Choice donation drive ended with a victory for the Marvel community. However, in the final hours leading up to the deadline, Pokken had taken a lead over its biggest rival at one point. The Marvel community instantly responded with such force (through money, of course) that they regained the lead and kept it until they’d passed the finish line.
Although Marvel will ultimately be featured in the EVO 2017 lineup, the Pokken scene earned their respect for their unwavering conviction to their game. In fact, the Pokken players didn’t walk away from the contest empty-handed, as the EVO team announced that they would contribute a total of $10,000 to a selection of events where Pokken would be featured.
That list has just been announced tonight…well, most of it. See below.
