As the year winds down, eSports leader Major League Gaming continues its impressive line-up of quality programming. For fans of StarCraft II, League of Legends, Halo 4 and Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, you can watch analysts and pros teach you, break down gameplay, discuss strategies, and battle in Best of Three series.

Some of their regular programming includes:

StarCraft II: Rules of Engagement, Hosted by Nick “Axslav” Ranish – Monday – Thursday at 5pm ET

Spend an hour with MLG’s top StarCraft II analyst Nick “Axslav” Ranish as he teaches and breaks down gameplay and mechanics geared at both new and advanced StarCraft II players.

StarCraft II: Tournament of Champions – Regularly at 6pm ET

The series features eight legendary players – DongRaeGu, Flash, Leenock, Life, MarineKing, SoO, PartinG, and Rain – competing for $7,000. Tournament of Champions viewers can also enter to win Flash's keyboard from the MLG Spring Championship signed by the legend himself.
