MLG Pro League Season 3 Playoffs: Event Preview
This event will be held at the MLG Arena in Columbus, Ohio. The address is 2188 Citygate Dr., Columbus, OH, 43219.
Unlike Season 1 and 2 of the MLG Pro League, all 12 teams have qualified for the Season 3 Playoffs after MLG was forced to make some changes to the rules due to connection issues.
The standings for Season 3 are as follows:
- 1st place: OpTic Gaming (11-0)
MLG will be using a 12 team double-elimination bracket, with the first four teams getting a bye into Winner’s Round 2, while the bottom eight teams will match up in Winner’s Round 1.
The bracket will look like this with the following first round matchups (matchup times are tentative):
- Epsilon eSports vs. Denial eSports (5:00 PM EDT)
The loser of each of these matches will then head down to the Loser’s Bracket, where a second loss would eliminate them from the playoffs. Winner's Round 2 is tentatively scheduled to begin at 8:00 PM with OpTic Gaming playing the winner of tK/Rise and Team eLevate playing the winner of Epsilon/Denial, while the finals matches of the night at 9:30 PM will feature FaZe Clan playing the winner of TCM/nV and OpTic Nation playing the winner of iSo/Orbit.
This is sure to be an action-packed weekend full of great Call of Duty matches. To make sure you do not miss any of the action, here is the schedule for this weekend.
