MLG Pro Circuit Details

Today Major League Gaming rolled out the first details for this year’s 2011 MLG Pro Circuit. MLG is America’s primary professional video game league, and this year the game’s they’re focusing on are Halo: Reach for the Xbox 360, StarCraft 2 for PC, and Call of Duty: Black Ops for Playstation 3. Over 1 million dollars in prizes are up for grabs this year over the course of six tournaments, starting in April. Read on to see how they’re divvying up the prize money, and the other changes heading for the event.

The regular season, which will consist of five events, will reward players all the way up to eighth place. Halo: Reach competitors can win up to $20,000 for a first place victory per event, while StarCraft 2 players can win up to $5,000. At the National Championship towards the end of the year, Reach players will be competing for the $100,000 grand prize, while the StarCraft 2 players will be after the hefty $50,000 grand prize. The prize pools for Black Ops aren’t available yet.

The first MLG event of 2011 will take place April 1-3 in Dallas, TX. While the following event will be held in Columbus, OH on June 3-5. Online registration for the events will begin on Tuesday, March 1st at 7pm EST. The Halo: Reach tournament will allow up to 208 teams, while StarCraft 2 will feature up to 272 players. Again, Call of Duty: Black Ops details are not yet available.

MLG also announced that they’re completely changing the venues this time around. So instead of small, crowded, rooms with attendees staring at one giant screen, they’re erecting three huge main stages for each event, which will hopefully make for a better spectator experience. They're also planning on improving the online stream for those unable to travel to the live events.
