First MLG competition of the year begins next week

0

StarCraft II, League of Legends, and....Black Ops II?

MLG's Winter Championship will begin on March 15 and run until the 17, with $170,000 worth of prize money up for grabs. The featured games are StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm, League of Legends, and Black Ops II. MLG sure is pushing Black Ops II as an eSport, despite the era of FPS competitive games seemingly behind us.

The competition will take place at the Dallas Convention Center and tickets to go live and in person are available through the MLG store. Streaming will be free up to 720p HD, but if you want some of that sweet 1080p action, you're going to have to upgrade. Can't say much about the Black Ops or League of Legend commentators, but the StarCraft II ones are the cream of the crop, including Day[9], DJ Wheat, and Husky.

 

Here are all the casters for each game:

  • Call of Duty: Black Ops II: Puckett, Fwiz, Hastro, Revan, and floor reporter – Bee.
  • League of Legends: Riot Rivington, Riot Phreak, Kobe24, Optimus Tom, EGADorFEED, and floor reporter – Jade.
  • StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm: Day[9], DJ Wheat, Husky, Total Biscuit, Incontrol, Axslav, Axeltoss, and floor reporter - Anna Prosser Robinson.
