A couple of years ago if you wanted to be part of the eSports world your best shot was to do it through Major League Gaming, MLG, but as time has gone on and publishers are able to hook up with sponsors to host their own tournaments MLG has started to fade away. Sure there are still tournaments held under their name, but their debts have been ever increasing.
Well that is until Activision decided to swoop in and buy out MLG. Now with this $46 million deal MLG will be dissolved. The interesting thing to see is what the future will hold for the non-Activision titles' tournaments that MLG was still the major promoter and event coordinator for. Something tells me that if these tournaments are any good that the publishers of the titles will step up and keep them going, and if not well perhaps the publishers need to find stronger games to promote.
