MLG Raleigh: Last Chance to Register!

MLG Raleigh is just around the corner and it's time to remind everyone to register before the deadline closes! The event will kick off August 27th with the Brawl 1v1 Event and conclude on August 29th with the Brawl 2v2 event. The first two MLG events were a huge success, with all of the best players in the US in attendance. The matches were hype, the crowd was consistently going crazy, and everyone had a ton of fun. Raleigh is approaching fast, and the deadline to get in on the action is August 23rd - so make sure to click here to register for the event. Registration is only $35 ($45 including at-the-venue-only 2v2 Registration), which is a drop in the bucket compared to most Nationals.

Here is what has been said about previous MLG Events, in case there is any doubt about the amazing style and production of the largest and strongest competitive gaming company in North America:

The best tournament I have been to in my entire life! - Dojo

The tournament was run very smoothly and I had a great experience with the Refs. Really well done overall, amazing job! - MetalMusicMan

MLG was a terrific experience, probably the best tournament I will ever go to in my life.-Clowsui

Another MLG is in the books, and like Orlando, it didn't disappoint. -Mav

I would just like to say that this was the best tournament I have ever been to without a doubt. Not only will I try my best to come to Raleigh, but I think everyone else should do the same. -SnackAttack

The place is huge. It’s ten times the size of my house. They’ve got good systems, it’s very well run. Most efficient tournament I’ve ever been to. - ESAM

The venue is amazing and the crowd is a lot of fun. I’ve never had this much fun at a tournament before. I loved the crowd. It made things a lot more fun.-ADHD

This has best the best tournament I have ever been to in the history of forever. I am not kidding, real talk. -Sky

This is my first MLG...and not only has it fulfilled my dreams but it has supported everything I ever expected.-Pierce7d

I absolutely thought it was a great tournament. Seeding could have been better but I know that couldn't be helped. The event was really professionally done and it was a blast. Free Dr. Pepper. I really liked that TV's were turned off for finals to increase the hype of the event.-LeeMartin

This was one of the fastest and most efficiently ran events that I have been to in years. Amazing!-D1

MLG Orlando is one of the best tournaments I have been to. I love Brawl and I love the community.-Tyrant

Obviously that's me with the R.O.B., I mean who else would it be? X^D

Omg Columbus.

(hopes Sil does not see previous post, lol)
Actually I'd never bring my R.O.B. on such a trip, he could get damaged. I'm the one in black in front of the guy in front of Sil who has the R.O.B.

Columbus was a lot of fun, Raleigh will be great, I'm sure, but I can't make it. I will try very much to make it to the next one though. And already making plans for Dallas.
