More than a few players have lauded the return of the Player’s Choice vote for Evo 2017. They welcome the chance for smaller games’ communities to express their passion and get their game into Evo, while also being able to support charity.
One person who isn’t singing praises is Yahoo Esports’ Michael Martin. While helping contribute to charity is good (and is something he praises), the big thing that Martin is concerned about is how the vote tends to pit communities against each other. Players have already been active around the internet and social media talking about how their games are better or more deserving than the other choices, and Martin thinks that this really isn’t a good look for the community.
