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

Major League Gaming have announced their 2012 Pro Circuit season structure and it's drastically different than what we saw from the eSports league last year. MLG was the premiere eSports league in 2011, garnering over 3.5 million stream viewers throughout tournament weekends, but this year the league has hit a turning point and they're doing things differently. The new structure for the ninth MLG season will be divided into four seasons: Winter, Spring, Summer, and Fall. The change from the 2011 to 2012 season is a great step forward for the company, and will bring more eSports coverage to fans while celebrating the hard work of competitive gamers.

"We’re finally at a place where we have an engaged community," said MLG Co-Founder and CEO Sundance DiGiovanni. "This allows for more regular competition, players getting a chance to do more, and brands getting supported more frequently. This is something we’d hoped to do sooner in our lifetime as a company. More competition means more regular events, and that's pretty cool."
 
As of right now the only game that has been confirmed for MLG 2012 is Blizzard Entertainment's real-time strategy game StarCraft 2, which was by far the most popular title at all of the MLG Pro Circuit events last year. However, DiGiovanni did mention the league is currently looking at first-person-shooters and fighting games for the Pro Circuit season this year and we'll have more details to follow that soon. For now, let's break down how the StarCraft 2 Winter Season is going to work.

Razer Announces The Naga Hex Gaming Mouse Designed For MOBA Gamers

Gaming peripheral company Razer have announced their new gaming mouse, The Razer Naga Hex. The Naga Hex is designed to bring your MOBA, action-RPG and hack and slash gaming skills to the next level. Inspired by the Razer Naga MMO gaming mouse which sports a 12-button thumb grid on the side, the Hex features six large thumb buttons, "optimized for the user interfaces found in action-RPG and MOBA games."

“I love RPG and MOBA games.  And I believe that having the right abilities available is the difference between slaying enemies and winning, or dying a miserable death and having your character wiped in hardcore mode,” said Robert ‘RazerGuy’ Krakoff, President, Razer USA. “That’s why we designed the Razer Naga Hex – we believe that the six mechanical thumb buttons are going to help gamers stay ahead of the competition with the best ergonomic control.”

If you're not familiar with what a MOBA game is, think League of Legends or Dota 2. With the Hex, you'll be able to perfect your champion's moves on the fly and become a force to be reckoned with.
