The MLG Dallas Season opener, and all the epic action that went along with it, is now behind us, and 2011 is now in full swing. We’ve already been treated to heart-wrenching upsets and dramatic triumphs, and this is just the beginning. With bigger brackets and a higher level of talent than ever before, this Season is sure to be one for the record books.

We’re pleased to be able to announce the remainder of the full Season Schedule for 2011. We’ll be returning to some of our favorite places and making a splash in one city that hasn’t yet gotten to experience the Pro Circuit. Mark your calendars, join us for the rest of the 2011 Season, and be a part of gaming history!

Full Season Schedule

Remaining Regular Season Stops:
MLG Columbus: June 3-5
MLG Anaheim: July 29-31
MLG Raleigh: August 26-28
MLG Orlando:  October 14-16

2011 National Championships:
MLG Providence: November 18-20

We are also ready to announce full details about the format of the National Championships. They will not be invitation-only; registration will be open to everyone. Each game's National Championship will consist of two brackets:

  • A Championship Bracket, consisting of the Top 16 teams or players at the end of the Regular Season
  • An Open Bracket, supporting up to 256 players for StarCraft 2, and up to 192 teams for Halo: Reach and Call of Duty: Black Ops.
  • As with Regular Season Events, the Top 16 players or teams from the Open Bracket will advance into the Championship Bracket.

Competing in Regular Season Events gives any player or team a substantial advantage in the National Championships, but it's anybody's game. On the line: a whopping $50,000 for the StarCraft 2 National Champion, $100,000 for the Halo: Reach National Champions, and $50,000 for the Call of Duty: Black Ops National Champions. And that's just for 1st Place.

Please see the National Championships section of the Pro Circuit site for full details about the format and prize structure of the National Championships.
