How the FGC could have million dollar prize pots, when pop offs go too far, which EVO title should be last on Sunday, and more

July 3, 2019

Catalyst has a few potential million dollar ideas pertaining to how the competitive fighting game eSports scene might get to that next level where major competitions offer seven figure payouts. Also should we expect more than just a lot of points to come out of the all-new Pro Tour "Super Premier" events? Perhaps Capcom may have some major reveal plans for each of these big stops. Plus two Mortal Kombat players get heated at CEO, Mr. Wizard asks which EVO title should get the Sunday Finals final spot, Cammy hasn't won a single CPT event this year thus unequivocally proving that Catalyst has no idea what he's talking about and more.
