MLG Summer Championship will be live very soon with competitions for StarCraft II, Mortal Kombat, SoulCalibur V, and Leage of Legends. Here's a quick rundown of the competition times (EDT) for the weekend:

This weekend has something for every eSports fan, whether you're into fighters, MOBAs, or StarCraft. The FPS genre is absent, but perhaps we'll witness the new eSports FPS revival with CS:GO and Black Ops 2. Perhaps.
