The lights are on
There's a lot of money on the line for professional Call of Duty, Starcraft, and League of Legends players this weekend. Major League Gaming's Spring Championship is taking place this weekend, June 28 through 30.
There's over $100,000 in prize money on the line, with first place in League of Legends and Call of Duty: Black Ops II earning $20,000. The winner of the Starcraft II: Heart of the Swarm competition will bring home a $10,000 purse.
In addition to those titles, spectators will also be able to get their hands on Planetside 2 and Warner Bros. upcoming DC Comics MOBA, Infinite Crisis. If you can't make it to Anaheim, you'll be able to view the proceedings on Twitch.tv.

eSports would be better if there was better games, say fighting or racing. I think MLG has some competition though, every time I go on GI lately there is an ad for Pro Gaming League Beta.
What? No Fighting games? Not even Smash Bros?
I actually enjoy watching these. The Halo 4 one was such an intense match.
Sounds epic to me.
What teams are playing LoL?
Im excited for this. StarCraft 2 is awesome I love watching the pros duke it out.
I dream that someday this will get as many views as the Superbowl. And be taken more seriously. But that is undoubtedly years down the road.
I hate MLG. I hate them because i've noticed over the last 3-5 years I have ran into scores of overly serious little tool bags ruining my time by their b*tching at every little thing thing that doesn't go their way so they can feel their heroes on team "optic" or whoever the hell they are. Like the damn idea of playing just for a little fun is rare.
