Map Changes[edit]

No changes are made from MLG Anaheim.[7]

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 Shakuras Plateau, Shattered Temple, and Metalopolis not possible.

Additional Coverage[edit]

Trivia[edit]

  • Mvp, the defending champion did not return to attempt to keep his title due to his decision to focus on the GSL.
  • Just like for all previous MLG SC2 tournaments, this was the first MLG event the winner, Bomber, participated in.
  • This MLG occurred during Hurricane Irene, which made land fall in North Carolina. Fortunately aside from some bad weather MLG was not very much affected.
