Chronology

MLG's second season with StarCraft 2 now on a main stage, bigger prize pool and many more players

Overview[edit]

MLG Columbus was the second Pro Circuit stop of the 2011 season. The event was the first of the GSL-MLG Exchange Program, featuring MMA, LosirA, Moon and MC, the latter of whom was a last-minute replacement for Bomber, who dropped out due to visa issues. Code A status was awarded to the top 3 placing foreigners, although Code S was not awarded at this event.

About[edit]

The Second Event of the MLG 2011 Pro Circuit will feature StarCraft 2, Halo: Reach, Call of Duty: Black Ops and other invite-only and sign-up competitions for prize money.

Location[edit]

  • Columbus, Ohio
  • Greater Columbus Convention Center

Schedule[edit]

Maps[edit]

Map Changes[edit]

The following maps have been removed since MLG Dallas:

The following maps have been added for MLG Columbus:

Additional Notes[edit]

  • Starting spawns on Metalopolis and Shattered Temple have been modified to prevent close ground spawns.
  • GOMTV edited their maps to prevent blocking ramps with e.g. two Bunkers or three Pylons, and MLG has adopted this change. Originally this was done by marking a small part of the terrain as unbuildable; since MLG Columbus, maps instead have a neutral lowered Supply Depot here.
Example: Main base ramp
Placing two bunkers is not possible.

Trivia[edit]

  • Day 3 of this competition, also known as "Championship Sunday" spawned the longest active thread to date on Team Liquid, with over 1370 pages within minutes after the finals.
  • Team Liquid organized a relay race for all the teams competing at MLG Columbus.[5] Of the teams TL, MLG, FXO and EG, MLG came in first with TL coming in second.[6]
  • The only non-Koreans to win sets over Koreans were IdrA vs. MC in pool play and Slush and NaNiwa vs. Moon.
  • During Game 1 of MMA vs. IdrA in the winner's bracket semifinal, MMA humorously destroyed his own Orbital Command with his own units, although IdrA would later inexplicably leave the game despite having a decisive advantage.
  • All of the GSL invites would place in the top 8, with MMA, LosirA, and MC occupying the top 3 places respectively.
