Chronology


2011 MLG Columbus was the second Pro Circuit stop of the 2011 MLG Pro Circuit, held at the Greater Columbus Convention Center in Columbus, Ohio.

The event was the first of the GSL-MLG Exchange Program, featuring MMA, LosirA, Moon and MC, the latter of whom was a last-minute replacement for Bomber, who dropped out due to visa issues. Code A status was awarded to the top 3 placing foreigners, although Code S was not awarded at this event.

Trivia[edit]

  • Day 3 of this competition, also known as "Championship Sunday" spawned the longest active thread to date on Team Liquid, with over 1370 pages within minutes after the finals.
  • Team Liquid organized a relay race for all the teams competing at MLG Columbus.[4] Of the teams TL, MLG, FXO and EG, MLG came in first with TL coming in second.[5]
  • The only non-Koreans to win sets over Koreans were IdrA vs. MC in pool play and Slush and NaNiwa vs. Moon.
  • During Game 1 of MMA vs. IdrA in the winner's bracket semifinal, MMA humorously destroyed his own Orbital Command with his own units, although IdrA would later inexplicably leave the game despite having a decisive advantage.
  • All of the GSL invites would place in the top 8, with MMA, LosirA, and MC occupying the top 3 places respectively.
