Basic Information


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)
  • 2nd place: Team eLevate (9-2)
  • 3rd place: FaZe Clan (7-4)
  • 4th place: OpTic Nation (6-5)
  • 5th place: iSolation Empire (6-5)
  • 6th place: Team EnVy (6-5)
  • 7th place: Epsilon eSports (5-6)
  • 8th place: Rise Nation (4-7)
  • 9th place: Team Kaliber (4-7)
  • 10th place: Denial eSports (4-7)
  • 11th place: TCM Gaming (3-8)
  • 12th place: Team Orbit (1-10)

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.
