A new points system across multiple games will allow fans to compete and work their way up to pro status.
Major League Gaming (MLG) players will now see how they stack up against the competition with the all-new MLG Pro Points Rankings (currently in beta). For the first time, players who compete via MLG: Play and at MLG tournaments will automatically earn points to achieve Pro Status and will be able to access their ranking at any time.
The rankings began this month with the Call of Duty: Black Ops II Xbox 360 Kick-off Tournament, players will now be awarded MLG Pro Points based on their performance in MLG competitions including Pro Circuit Events, Online Tournaments, and Online Ladders. Titles featured in the MLG Pro Points Rankings beta stage include Call of Duty: Black Ops II, Gears of War: Judgment, NBA 2k13, FIFA Soccer 13, DOTA 2 and Madden NFL 25 with plans to introduce additional titles moving forward - see Arena list below.
Players who are already signed up with an MLG profile on MLG: Play will automatically begin earning MLG Pro Points when competing in the designated Online Tournaments, Online Ladders, and Pro Circuit Events. MLG Pro Points Rankings will be accessible via the standings and profile pages. Each Arena’s MLG Pro Points Rankings will be updated every two weeks with Ladder Rankings pulled on the morning of the day that rankings are released. On Tuesday, August 13th, the first rankings will be released for NA Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 (Xbox 360). See the complete schedule below.
To celebrate the launch, all Ladders for MLG Pro Points Arenas will have Double XP from now until their first MLG Pro Points Rankings are released.
