StarCraft 2 no longer included in MLG Columbus tournament

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.
