Team Malaysia were the first to qualify for the MLG Pro League X-Games main event, on May 2. It was with little difficulty that they advanced towards the qualifier finals, defeating both Arcanys Gaming and Team Invasion without suffering a single loss. As MVP.Hot6ix fought Signature.Trust, 2:1, and MVP.Phoenix, 2:0, they entered the best-of-three finals ready to put up a fight against Team Malaysia, the tournament favorites. MVP.Hot6ix managed to take the second game away from MY but eventually lost, 2:1.
Alliance and Virtus.Pro have each secured a spot, on May 14. With Alliance’s defeat over Balkan Bears Corleone, 2:0, and Virtus.Pro’s triumph over Ninjas in Pyjamas, 2:0, the teams will be booking their tickets and preparing their passports to fly to Austin, Texas.
Mousesports have qualified for the MLG Pro League tournament held at the X-Games 2015 event, on May 17. The newly sponsored team defeated the reformed Summer’s Rift, 2:1. Summer’s Rift will compete against NorthAmerican Rejects for the final NA spot in the LAN event, worth over $141,000.
Team Empire and Evil Geniuses have both received direct invited to the MLG Pro League LAN finals to be hosted by X-Games, between June 5-7, in Austin, Texas.
