StarCraft 2 no longer included in MLG Columbus tournament

Thursday, 8th August 2013 21:57 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

StarCraft 2 has been dropped from Major League Gaming’s Columbus, Ohio tournament, as the eSports powerhouse will instead shift more of its focus onto more popular titles such as League of Legends.

The announcement was made over Twitter by MLG CEO Sundance DiGiovanni: “Just so folks know – we are currently not planning to run SC2 at Cbus. Should that change we’ll let you know via official channels.”

Back in June, MLG announced it would no longer be hosting Blizzard’s North American StarCraft 2 World Championship Series, in order to refocus efforts on producing its own eSports competitions.

MLG hosted the finals of the first season of the North American arm of the World Championship Series in early June, and the prize fund was reduced to $25,000 compared to the previous event in March which stood at $75,000.

    On one hand i’m really sad to see such a big event drop SC2, on the other hand i’m glad they aren’t doing SC2 anymore after the major screwup they did with WCS!

    SC2 Should be made multiplayer at tournaments. Multiple players can control different units or tasks in the game just like DOTA, LOL, and COD. 1v1 is cool for an egotistical ladder player.
