WoW: MLG Columbus Preview

BY Andrew Miesner / June 3, 2009

Starting this Friday, MLG Columbus will be taking place and it features the top WoW talent from across North America. There are eight of the finest teams competing for $15,000 in cash. Some of the names in attendance are SK Gaming, fnatic, compLexity, and Pandemic. These look to be the top 4 teams of the tournament given their track record. coL was recognized as one of the top teams of the competitive scene in 2008, but with the patch updates and other factors, has been unable to find that first place win yet this year.
