    Major League Gaming eSports Offered

    Major League Gaming is one of the most extensive eSports competitions sites in the world. As you might expect, major eSports such as Call Of Duty: Black Ops III, NBA 2K17, NHL 17, Overwatch and Rocket League are among the more covered events, but the site also features leaderboards for various other games such as 8 Ball Pool, Fun Run 2 and Scavenger Hunt which may seem a bit more trivial on the face of things.

    Call Of Duty games are currently quite dominant at the MLG, but the company is also involved in organization of tournaments in games such as World Of Warcraft and other games that may not receive as much popularity otherwise. The Gamebattles at MLS are where teams can acquire points for the various ladders, while the various 32 team tournaments organized by the company pit these teams against each other in bracketed formats, with actual real money buyins and prize pools.
    Major League Gaming allows for players who play on a variety of platforms to compete against each other, with PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, PC, Wii U and Mobile all supported. The variety of consoles accepted greatly increases the number of tournaments available as well.

    Major League Gaming Tournaments

    Major League Gaming is famous for organizing eSports tournaments on a daily basis where on site currency called Credits is used by players and teams to enter the tournament. The currency is purchased for real money and once the tournament is complete, the winning players win a share of a real money prize pool.
    All tournaments at MLG are based on a 32 player, single or double elimination bracket. The vast majority of current tournaments are organized in Call Of Duty games but players can frequently also participate in tournaments in other popular games such as Madden or NBA 2K17. While many tournaments are free for anyone to enter after paying the fee, other tournaments are invitational and sponsored by the MLG and their various sponsors.
    The tournaments at MLS are not high buyin tournaments and you can actually participate in many of them for as little as $10 per player, which is quite reasonable for most players. Some restrictions do apply to these tournaments as some tournaments are reserved for amateur players only or only accept players from Europe or Americas.

    The Alpha and Omega of eSports. That’s what I would call Major League Gaming. I dare you, I double dare you to find a better competition regardless of what game you prefer. The only think that sometimes annoys me about them is that I get crushed so often in competitive games. If I had a dollar for every hour spent watching games for free on MLG.tv, I’d be able to buy something nice for my girlfriend this Valentine’s Day. Heh, I guess sometimes you end up paying them more for the things you get for free.

    Who knew that virtual XP could be such a hit? With thousands of matches being played daily, Major League Gaming (MLG) is the top brand when it comes to the competitive gaming scene.  The competition is fierce, and the players will do whatever it takes to take home the win. If you're an avid gamer and want to have fun playing competitively, for XP or for money, MLG is the place to play.

    MLG is one of my favorites organization when it comes to COD. I don't think there is a single organizer other than MLG that hosts one of the biggest COD events. Other than that, MLG provides online tournaments through which you can register your team and gear up to win the prize. It has always been a great opportunity for me to take part in the GameBattle powered by MLG. The atmosphere is electric and all the games are pretty fun to play at MLG.

    Great company that allows followers to stay in touch with some great eSports games. Their Lan events are usually top notch. However their streaming site MLG.tv has always been 5 steps behind Twitch.
