EVO 2022 was a great event for us. We got to see friends from around the world we have not seen in years, and meet awesome new people for the first time. We saw our sponsored players do great in their brackets, and experience our community doing well in practically every game at the event. We were able to provide an amazing fan experience with Daigo at our booth, and personally meet people in the FGC that we look up to.
Here is a recollection of our time at and highlights of EVO 2022.
There are photos of community members throughout this post. If you see yourself, please let us know and we will tag you properly in this post and online: @Hit_Box.

On the Floor
Let us know if you see yourself in the photos!
And some of you wanted to pose!
We have come as far as we have through grassroots work and we are extremely proud of that. But none of that would have happened without the support from you - our community!
We hope that EVO was just as fun for you as it was for us, whether you were in person or at home.
Thank you to everyone who stopped by our booth and supports us in any way.
