Map Changes[edit]

MLG Testbug removed. MLG Antiga Shipyard added.[11]

Additional Note[edit]

GOMTV edited maps to make ramp blocking no longer possible, MLG has continued this to their map pool and also making spawning in close positions on Metalopolis and Shattered Temple not possible.

Additional Coverage[edit]

Trivia[edit]

  • NaNiwa decided against attendance for MLG Orlando in favour of an extended practice session in Korea. Even without his attendance at this pro circuit event, he will automatically qualify for the MLG championship at Providence due to previous high ranking finishes during the 2011 season.
  • This is the first MLG event with a repeat winner, HuK, who also won the first time StarCraft II was played in MLG at Raleigh 2010.
  • This is the first MLG event where it was not the winner's first appearance on the MLG circuit
  • This is the first MLG event since the GSL-MLG Exchange Program began where a Korean has not won.
