MLG Anaheim Recap

Major League Gaming continues to grow, as over 21,000 attended the competitive event in Anaheim. That number may have been boosted due to the appearances of athletes, such as Dwight Howard, Ty Lawson, Dez Bryant, and DeJuan Blair. These players participated in an All-Star match, where other Call of Duty figures were able to join in, for Black Ops 2. There were some great highlights and antics, but the match was enjoyable for all.

Unsurprisingly enough, League of Legends was easily the loudest section out of the three games being held. The Starcraft audience, while not as large as the other two, still had the enthusiasm to make me rush over and see the commotion. However, I’d say Anaheim had one of the better, if not the best turnout for Call of Duty, compared to other events.
