Overview[edit]

The 2012 MLG vs Proleague Invitational is a 48-player invitational jointly organised by Major League Gaming, the Korea e-Sports Association, and the International eSports Group. The tournament will gather the 24 best-ranked players in Proleague as well as 24 invitees (12 from North America, 6 from Europe, and 6 from Korea and Taiwan), all of whom will compete for a share of the $10,000 prize pool and 8 coveted spots in group play at the MLG Fall Championship. The competition will air matches weekly.[1] As of September 27, the eSF players have declined their invites to the MLG-KeSPA Invitational.[2]

Prize Pool[edit]

$10,000 and eight seeds for the 2012 MLG Fall Championship is spread among the players as seen below.

Format[edit]

Inter-conference preliminary play
  • The player pool is divided into two conferences: the Proleague conference, and the Major League Gaming conference
    • The Proleague conference consists of the top 24 ranked KeSPA players in Proleague
    • The Major League Gaming conference is further subdivided into the North American, European, and Korean/Taiwanese regional divisions. Players have been invited into this conference by Major League Gaming based on their individual performance in previous Pro Circuit events.
  • Every player in the Proleague conference will play every player in the Major League Gaming conference
    • Each match-up round between two players will consist of two games played; the number of game wins versus losses will determine an individual's rank within the conference and the division.
  • The top eight Proleague players in that conference will move on to the single-elimination playoffs.
  • Within the Major League Gaming conference, the top four North Americans in their division, as well as top two Europeans in their division, and finally the top two Korean/Taiwanese players in their division, will advance to the single-elimination playoffs.
Single-elimination playoffs
  • All playoff matches will be best-of-seven.
  • Proleague and Major League Gaming conference playoff entrants will be placed on opposite halves of the single-elimination playoff bracket. The two conferences will finally meet in the grand finals of the tournament.
    • Proleague players enjoy power-protected seeding based on their performance in conference.
    • Major League Gaming seeding takes place in a different manner:
      • The highest seeded North American player will play the lowest seeded North American player and the second highest seeded North American player will play the third highest seeded North American player
      • The European players will play each other
      • The Korean/Taiwanese players will play each other.
