MLG Summer Invite announced, $1,500 star-studded American StarCraft II tournament
You may remember a short while ago, following a record breaking MLG Anaheim, MLG announced it was stepping up the pace with additional content. Well, it looks like MLG is already delivering.
Today the eSports company has announced the MLG Summer Invite, a 16-player $1,500 Invitational tournament with some of the best StarCraft II players in North America.
It all kicks off this weekend on July 20-21 from 4pm to 7pm ET, then again on July 27-28. The player line-up is a star-studded all-american showdown, featuring: HelloKitty, Hendralisk, Huk, InControl, Kane, KawaiiRice, Minigun, Ostojiy, Phog, Puck, qxc, Sasquatch, State, Suppy, Vibe and Xenocider. Wow, this is going to be a good one!
$1,500 for a few hours work is nothing to sneeze at--and it won't be an easy few hours let me tell you that! The prize pool isn't the important factor here though; the American scene is crying out for regional competition, and if this goes well for MLG, they are more likely to invest further into American tournaments.
Be sure not to miss this, these players truly are the cream of the crop, America's best. For the full MLG broadcast schedule, head on over to majorleaguegaming.com.
