MLG Columbus Video Game Tournament Brings In Record Breaking 22.5 Million Views

Major League Gaming's
second Pro Circuit event in Columbus proved to be a huge success, bringing in over 22.5 million online video stream views of the gaming tournament. G4TV.com streamed the eSports event which pit more than 1,300 professional gamers against one another in StarCraft 2, Halo: Reach, and Call of Duty: Black Ops. According to MLG, the 22.5 million stream views nearly doubled the reported 11.4 million consumed during the weekend of the 2011 NFL Draft.

If you happened to miss any of MLG Columbus, you can catch rebroadcasts of all of the matches on MLG.tv. All of the rebroadcasted matches are commentated by some of the best shoutcasters in the business, so even if you aren't familiar with professional play, they'll help keep you up to speed.

Over 164 countries watched the four streams during the three-day tournament and nearly 2.2 million hours of video was consumed. The large number probably had something to do with the fact that, besides producing a high quality stream, five professional Korean StarCraft 2 players made the trip over to compete due to MLG's partnership with the Korean Global StarCraft 2 League (GSL). If you were lucky enough to be in attendance at MLG Columbus, you were one of 16,000 fans who spectated the event live over the course of the weekend.

The next Pro Circuit event will take place in Anaheim, California on July 29-31. As we get closer I'll have more details on the event, but for now I'd love to hear your impressions of MLG Columbus and of the live stream.
