MLG Fighters

This Friday, Major League Gaming is hosting the Summer season's Fighter Arena featuring the top eight from the Spring Championships in both Soul Calibur V and Mortal Kombat. In what's sure to be some fierce competition, these elite players will face off in a round robin style tournament before a semi-final and final round to decide who's really the best around - or to use a popular FGC term, a run back. Each tournament will be for $3,400 in cash for the winner, in addition to room and board for all entrants.

The broadcast will feature two streams: the gameplay stream hosted by Juicebox, with Tom Brady providing the main casting for Mortal Kombat, and Bibulus for Soul Calibur V and the Dr Pepper Ultimate Access stream hosted by Gootecks, showcasing behind-the-scenes coverage and interviews all weekend long.

Players include:

Mortal Kombat:

Pool A                                                              Pool B

(1) - DJT1993                                                  (2) - PerfectLegend

(4) Pig of the Hut                                         (3) - EGPTyrant

(5) - GGA_Dizzy                                            (6) - GGA16Bit

(8) - riu48                                                        (7) - vVvREO

Please note: DetroitBalln and CDjr were both invited to the event but unfortunately cannot attend. Too bad, they’re both really fun players to watch.

Soul Calibur V:

Pool A                                                              Pool B

(1) - Keev_                                                     (2) - Kayane

(4) - rtd_atl                                                     (3) - LostProvidence

(5) - Something-Unique                            (6) - _Hawkeye

(8) - Kinetic_Clash                                       (7) -Linkrkc

These events are always great because they give you time to really get to know the competitors and their back stories a little better than the break neck pace most fighting game tournaments have, since most matches are so fast and there are so many entrants. The action kicks off at 4:00 EST with Soul Calibur V, available for free up to 480p, with an upgrade available to 720p and near instant access to VODs - you can check out the full schedule below.
