MLG Raleigh is right around the corner, and it is rapidly shaping up to be the biggest and most exciting Pro Circuit Competition ever. The community is coming out in force to celebrate MLG’s 50th-ever event. Past Pro Circuit games will be featured in free-play sessions, portions of Open Bracket play will take place on the Main Stage, and StarCraft 2 will make its Pro Circuit debut. It doesn’t get much more exciting than this.

Spectator passes are still on sale. For just $25, you can come out and be a part of the action all weekend long.

Unfortunately, not everyone will be able to make it to Raleigh. If you can’t spectate in person, we have you covered: MLG HD is back, and we will be streaming live from Raleigh all weekend long. Full, HD coverage of Halo 3 (including the Open Bracket action from the Main Stage), StarCraft 2, Tekken 6, and World of Warcraft can be yours for only $10. (As always, a lower-quality stream will also be available at no cost.)

Watch StarCraft 2 Live, Featuring Expert Commentary

We’re happy to officially announce that the entire StarCraft 2 competition will be streamed live on our website. We’ve brought aboard an array of highly respected commentators to cover what is sure to be an epic tournament:

Sean “Day9” Plott is an 11-year veteran player and StarCraft commentator, known to the majority of the StarCraft 2 community for his “Day9 Daily” internet live stream shows. His expertise at the game and exciting personality make Day9 a community favorite.

JP McDaniel has made a name for himself in the ever-growing StarCraft 2 community with his commentary on the MLG KOTBH SC2 beta Showmatch series, as well as with his community outreach efforts and extensive PR experience in StarCraft and World of Warcraft.

Alex “HDStarCraft” Do and Mike “Husky” Lamond hardly need any introduction. Boasting the #3 and #4 rated channels on YouTube, with replays reaching beyond 150,000 views each, this dynamic duo’s high-definition StarCraft 2 replay commentaries have taken the gaming community and the public by storm.
