If there was ever any doubt that video game playing is just for kids, it should be dispelled. The Major League Gaming, or MLG, circuit runs for five separate weekends in five different states each year all leading up to the National Championship to determine the best of video gamers out there. The first round was held in April and the second will be in June. For those in Dayton that want to see part of this competition in person, Columbus will be the site for round two of the MLG.
Gamers must compete in three different games: Halo Reach, StarCraft II, and Call of Duty Black Ops. Anyone can compete from veterans to new players for the over $1 million in prize money that will be awarded. Winning will also get bragging rights for the top player.
Those interested in playing should get their competitor passes on May 3rd. While Halo Reach and Call of Duty Black Ops are team games, StarCraft II is an individual competition and all three have different prices to play. For those who don’t want to complete, a spectator pass can be purchased. Currently it is on sale but that will not last. The games can also be watched online for anyone who can’t make it.
