MLG major QF's at Nationwide Arena

MLG Columbus 2016 major quarter-finals will be held at the Nationwide Arena, as the live show has been extended from two to three days, MLG's Adam Apicella announced via Reddit.

Initially, three of the five days of the next major, including groups and quarter-finals, were set to take place at the MLG Arena, closed off to the public.

MLG's decision to only show semi-finals and the grand final live at the Nationwide Arena was met with criticism from the community, to which the organization has announced that they are working on a solution.


Nationwide Arena to host quarter-finals as well

That came only a few days afterwards, as MLG extended the Nationwide Arena show to Friday, April 1st as well, which will feature the major quarter-finals, making the number of matches shown live from three to seven.

It still stands that the group stage will be closed off entirely to "reduce downtime and promote competition experience for players", same as with the previous two majors, DreamHack Open Cluj-Napoca and ESL One Cologne.

Fans that have already bought tickets for the show will be glad to see that their tickets have been automatically upgraded to a full three days with no additional cost, as MLG's Adam Apicella stated in the announcement.

Striker why do you boycott coverage of Valve? You write like Valve is not even involved but Valve and their Major Championship series is the main host and MLG is a just secondary partner. You didnt use Valve or CSGO Major Championship name even once in your news but MLG is used like 10 times! Why are you so mad at Valve and their CSGO Major Championship series you boycott them?

Lol, volvo only makes stickers for event, nothing else. And gives few million € to teams. So why should he mention volvo?
2015-12-09 17:12
This is not ESL Cologne. Valve fully sponsor everything in Ohio.

If don't see at least 14 rounds with nothing but R8s, this major will be a failure

Yes, volvo adds de_westwood to map pool and it will play out as a Mexican standoff.
2015-12-09 18:24
NA team making it out of the groups to play in quarters would be a nice April 1st joke.

Hasn't even happened yet and it's already the worst? Nonsense. Also: They have said multiple platforms will be used for streaming. Might want to read a few of the other articles, you might change your mind.
2015-12-09 18:37
You need to calm the fuck down and let the major happen before you pass judgement my friend lol. Don't be "that guy".
