EVO 2017 Super Smash Winners Revealed
EVO 2017 has now slowly shifted to a halt, and the winners for both Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and Super Bros. Melee have now been revealed.
If you don't want spoilers, you can check out recaps on the EVO 2017 Twitch channel before reading our EVO 2017 finals overview below.
We'll first start with the least surprising turnout of the event. In the Super Bros. Melee tournament at EVO 2017, Armada and Mang0 ended up facing up against each other in the grand finale.
Armada managed to pull out an almost clean 3-1 victory over Mang0 to take the grand final win after coming from the winner's bracket. This is now the third year in a row that Armada has made it to the EVO 2017 grand finals.
In 2016, Armada came second after losing in the grand finals. Armada also took the 2015 EVO Smash Bros. Melee win.
The results for the EVO 2017 Smash Bros. for Wii U tournament were a little more interesting.
As expected, ZeRo made his way to the grand finals after staying at the top of the winner's bracket. However, out of nowhere, Salem, pushed out a very close victory in the grand finals.
Salem had a tough time making his way through to the grand finals. With a number of close wins behind him, Salem ended up beating ZeRo 3-2 in both grand final best of five matches. It was one of the most exciting Smash Bros. games to watch this year.
