Major League Gaming Fall Championship Off To An Underwhelming Start

on November 3, 2012 3:03 PM

It’s time for the Fall Championship of Major League Gaming in Dallas, Texas tonight. There’s expected to be over 1,500 people there, but the whole thing seems to be a bit underwhelming. First off, it’s one night only, which means the trip just isn’t worth it for many that might have considered going. Secondly, the prizes, while nice, are nowhere near what we’ve seen at other championships for games such as League of Legends. There’s a full breakdown below of the $180,000 if you’re interested.

What should be worth watching, however, is the Halo 4 Pre-release tournament that will be going on. It should give us a nice look at how Halo 4’s multiplayer will hold up live in some experienced hands. Coverage begins tonight at 5pm Central US Time at the MLG site, where you can stream the different events live. I know most of us hope that gaming will take hold as a respectable sport, so let’s just hope this year goes well and next year will be even bigger.

  • Mortal Kombat – $16,700
  • Halo 4 – $40,000
  • StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty – $76,000
  • League of Legends – $30,000
  • TEKKEN Tag Tournament 2 – $15,000
  • PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale – $5,000
