MLG introduces Points Ranking to seed tourneys, earn Pro status
Major League Gaming has introduced a new system called MLG Points Ranking enabling hopeful gamers to work towards Pro status.
Only the top 2% in each Arena will reach Pro status, and only 100 players will be labelled Pro at any given time. As well as this bragging right, Pro points will be used to seed tournament brackets.
Beginning with the NA Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 Xbox 360 Kick-off Tournament on August 4, players will now be awarded MLG Pro Points based on their performance in Pro Circuit Events, Online Tournaments, and Online Ladders.
Currently in beta, the system supports Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, Gears of War: Judgment, NBA 2K13, FIFA Soccer 13, DOTA 2 and Madden NFL 25, with more to come at a later date.
If you have an MLG profile on MLG: Play, you’re already good to go, and will be able to check your ranking via the standings and profile pages.
To celebrate the launch of the new system, all Ladders for MLG Pro Points Arenas will have Double XP from now until their first MLG Pro Points Rankings are released. Ranking will be refreshed every two weeks.
