Gears of War 3 and League of Legends Tournaments Coming To MLG Raleigh August 26-28 -- Watch The Live Stream On G4TV.com

Gears of War 3 and League of Legends will be making their first ever appearance at Major League Gaming's fourth pro circuit event, MLG Raleigh, this weekend August 26-28. Along with these two tournaments, more than 1,000 competitors will compete throughout the weekend for more than $120,000 in prizes in games like StarCraft 2, Call of Duty: Black Ops, and Halo: Reach.

The Gears of War 3 expo match will feature team Th3 Nsan3z, the 2008 Gears of War Pro Circuit National Champions and 2009 Gears of War 2 Pro Circuit National Champions as they take on Team Epic, four members of the Epic Games development team including Donald White, Alex Connor, Richard Wilt, and Jonathan Taylor. The tournament will be held on Friday, August 26 at 8:15 PM EST on the Halo: Reach stream. The teams will play out three full games, which will all be commentated by Chris Puckett (MLG), Quinn DelHoyo (Epic Games) and Kendall ‘Arctic’ Smith, Epic Games consultant and Captain of GoW team Amayzn.

Along with Gears of War 3, League of Legends is also making its debut as MLG's newest game for Pro Circuit competition. At Raleigh, four of the best North American teams, Epik Gaming, Curse Gaming, Team Solo Mid, and Counter Logic Gaming, will be competing for $20,000 in prizes. All of the League of Legends games will be streamed online for your enjoyment.

As for the other Pro Circuit titles, SC2, Reach, and Black Ops, the tournaments in Raleigh will be absolutely fierce. With two first place wins in Dallas and Anaheim, Black Ops team Quantic LeveraGe will try to go for the hold once again in Raleigh. The Halo: Reach team Instinct dominated in Anaheim, being the first team to go undefeated in MLG history, and will be going for a three-peat in Raleigh. Plus, the StarCraft 2 tournament will be stacked with some of the world's most talented players including Korean players and teammates Bomber and Trickster as well as Nada and Coca.

As usual, we'll have the full schedule and streams available for you right here on G4TV.com throughout the whole weekend so you won't have to miss a thing. I'm sad that I can't attend MLG Raleigh as I'll be at PAX Prime in Seattle. But, it looks like it's shaping up to be another amazing weekend of fantastic tournaments. Will you be at MLG Raleigh, and if not, do you intend on tuning in to the stream?
