After a sizable 25% increase in player participation, Evo 2016 viewership for melee trumped last’s years record of just over 211,000.

Though the 2016 numbers aren’t quite as generous as the leap in competitor registration, at 219,416 views, the 8,000 spectator jump suggests that melee’s growth continues to increase at a steady pace.

Last night’s finals were incredible to watch and it’s exciting to know that the scene remains as strong as ever. Hopefully this prompts more outside sponsorship as top 32 proved that competition is becoming fiercer and fiercer.
