Going into 2006, MLG decided less was more, and opted to lower the amount of events while increasing the average prize pool for each event. The juggernaut Team 3D roster stuck together, though losing the sponsorship and changing their name to Final Boss[1]. The 2nd place Team Phreaks roster stuck together as well, adopting the name Carbon. The 3rd place Str8 Rippin made some changes, replacing Cpt Anarchy and KillerN with Defy and a returning Tsquared. The 4th place XiT Woundz stuck together as well, reacquiring the CheckSix Gaming sponsorship from Zyos' original teams in 2005. Many brand new teams formed, such as the Storm Ventures roster of RambyPoonNaded and Legit, and the MOBDeep.net roster of Cpt Anarchy, GH057ayameMelloz and PistoL.

Perhaps the biggest story outside of the top 4 was the rise of Storm Ventures. Featuring a brand new player - Naded, SV plowed through the amateur bracket on their way to qualifying for the championship bracket and managed a 6th place finish as the 18th seed. They were knocked out of the winners' bracket early by Str8 Rippin, but fought through the losers' bracket, defeating three top 8 seeded teams before being eliminated by Carbon.
