MLG Anaheim is just over a week away, and the more we learn about it, the harder it is to wait. You already know who's in the Pools. You know that Boxer, DRG, MMA, and MVP are coming, and that Choya and Ganzi will be playing in the Open Bracket. You've seen the schedule of streamed Friday matches.  But even all of that isn't the full story. 

Debuts, Reappearances, Veterans

The Open Bracket in Anaheim is so full of talent that it's practically a Championship Bracket of its own. Spanishiwa will be coming, for his first MLG ever. So will MToD, dignitas.Merz, and Sonkie. These newcomers are joined by some players who we haven't seen on the Pro Circuit in a while: WhiteRa, Jinro, and Ajtls (LastShadow). Welcome back! And in addition to SlayerSAlicia, SlayerSGanzi, and ChoyafOu, two more Korean players will be hitting the Open Bracket: FnaticRain and FXOz (Twilight).

Apart from new and long-lost players, the Open Bracket is also packed with veteran talent. Here's just a sample of who'll be battling for the title the hard way:

  • LiquidTyler
  • FXOqxc
  • SixJax's Vibe, Major, Skew, and dde
  • EG's DeMuslim, Axslav and StrifeCro
  • HDStarcraft
  • Destiny
  • coL's FireZerg, Ryze, Catz, and Stalife
  • Agh
  • KawaiiRice
  • ThisIsJimmy
  • Pokebunny
  • FnaticTT1 and Fenix

In short, the Open Bracket is insane. 

Get in on the Action

If you're going to watch from home, make sure you get a Membership so you'll have ad-free HQ, access to VoD while the tournament's still going on, and a load of other perks and discounts. If you're lucky enough to be able to come out in person, be sure to get a Spectator Pass. Then check out this handy Guide that should tell you everything you need to know about going to a Pro Circuit Live Competition.

By now, you should be hopping up and down in anticipation of the madness that is going to be MLG Anaheim, just because of the players we've already mentioned. If you can handle it, take a look at the full list.
