MLG No Longer Working With Blizzard

StarCraft 2 fans as well as followers of the professional gaming industry will disappointed to hear that Major League Gaming, MLG for short, has parted ways with Blizzard and will not be hosting future World Championship Series tournaments. (Blizzard, MLG, PC, Starcraft II)

What games does MLG still have?
krisds14  +   769d ago
I know Black Ops 2 and League of Legends are in it.

It's annoying when MLG hosts LoL matches, takes forever for recordings of matches to become available to the public
Tejaneudys98  +   769d ago
Halo 4, NBA 2K13, FIFA 2013, Gears:Judgment to name a few from there website

Pretty sure Halo 4 is not MLG anymore.

Halo 4 has AGL tourneys now.

I'm hoping they will pick up Dota 2 and maybe the new Command and Conquer if they can get the balance between the factions down.

They still have SC2 just not in the WCS Blizzard tournament kind of way. They have their own circuit that they can now focus on. WCS didn't fit the MLG format that well so it was probably best for them to split. I'm pretty sure NASL is getting the WCS partnership and they fit better since they had already been doing daily content.

This isn't a no more SC2 at MLG. It is just a no more hosting Blizzards North American part of their world tournament.

MLG is getting less and less MAJOR it seems.

How many Happy MLG gamers are there ? Almost none because they all think they are the best, so anytime something doesn't go their way, they go rage crazy or blame others and it seems to spread negativity everywhere.

I think it's cool that there is a way for gamers to make some good money and have great competition but I feel like for some reason there is a lot of Arrogance and doucheyness associated with it.

So freaking dumb. True, SC2 isn't the best nor hardest RTS, but it's still one of if not -THE- largest face of the RTS industry. I don't want to see one of my favorite genres suffer because some money grabbing organization, I just want to see professionals game.

What's more competitive then SC2? The skill ceiling is ridiculous.

The GSL partnership with Blizzard for WCS is what killed this.

It was meant to be a subliminal wink to SC1, but truthfully there are many other RTS games out there that are completely and utterly different when compared to Starcraft...I'm just trying to keep it real is all.

The first StarCraft is the Only RTS I ever played on PC. its a shame that money controls the outcome of weather or not a game will get played at MLG

All games should be played. Locking out dozens of potential competitive games = failure.
Cernunnos  +   769d ago
Are you kidding with me? It is THE best, and by miles the hardest RTS, save SC1.

AHEM!!

I don't keep up with the eSports scene, how big of a deal is this to SCII and MLG?
Wni0  +   769d ago
SC2 viewership never really caught on in the states until The second MLG and then afterwords it became more popular then Halo - eventually it took the center stage literally.
McScroggz  +   769d ago
Thanks for the reply :)

I know my friend plays a lot of Star Craft II and watches commentary, but I don't know a lot about it personally.
Sarobi  +   769d ago
SC2 and League of Legends are two of the most watched games in MLG, so losing SC2 means losing a good chunk of viewership.
