Major League Gaming today announced that World of Warcraft is returning to MLG Pro Circuit as this year’s title. In addition, there will be more prizes, matches and teams making it even more exciting.
MLG Columbus, Ohio kicks off on June 4th to the 6th where 16 of the top WoW teams compete 3v3. Two groups of eight teams will compete in a round robin format and the top two teams from each group advance into a double-elimination Championship Bracket where the winners take home $15,000 prize purse.
Starting with Raleigh, an Online Qualifier will be held prior to each Live Competition. The top four placing teams in this open competition will earn invitations to the following live event. The top two placing teams in the Online Qualifier will also receive hotel accommodations for the following live event. Also beginning in Raleigh, each Regular Season live event will host 16 teams total: the top four teams from previous event, four MLG invited teams, four Online Qualifier placing teams, and four open registration slots available for purchase.
In addition, MLG rank points will be awarded to each of the three regular season events. Only eight teams will be chosen by the MLG rank points and they will face off for $25,000 in cash and the MLG 2010 World of Warcraft Championship title. MLG Pro Circuit broadcast crew will also bring back the “Live Broadcast from each Pro Circuit Live Competition”.
