MLG fast expands into SC2

ImageJust days after the full release of SC2, MLG has announced its plans for the game.

Major League Gaming today expanded its PC Circuit by adding Starcraft II. The addition comes as no surprise, especially due to the show matches held by MLG during the beta. The new game will make its debut at the upcoming event in Raleigh on August 27 and will run throughout the remainder of the 2010 season, including a grand finale at the national championships in Dallas.

The solo tournament will feature 32 players in a double-elimination format, meaning all players should get a second chance. Prize money is currently set at "over $5,000" although the division is yet to be announced. Registration is open to everyone, with no invitation system for the first tournament at least.

MLG is already two fifths of the way through its regular season but the chance to be "official parter" for the biggest new esports game of the year was too good for MLG to pass up. As one of the few organisers running World of Warcraft tournaments, the choice by Blizzard should be of little surprise as well. This means that although the size of the PC Circuit has doubled (from one to two), MLG's PC games are still 100% Blizzard.
