Expect to see world-renowned players such as Seth ‘Scumpii’, Ian ‘Crimsix’ Porter, Damon ‘Karma’ Barlow, and Matthew ‘FormaL’ Piper playing for the most popular Call of Duty team in the world, OpTic Gaming. Current world champions Clay ‘Clayster’ Eubanks, Chris ‘Replays’ Crowder, Dillon ‘Attach’ Price and Jordan ‘JKap’ Kaplan will likely be in attendance under Denial eSports.

On the DOTA 2 side of things, famous teams such as Ninjas in Pyjamas, Evil Geniuses, and Cloud9 should all be attending.

If you’re looking to compete in either of the open brackets, competitor passes will be on sale in the coming weeks according to MLG.

If you’d prefer to watch from the comfort of your own home, you’ll be able to catch all the action from the event over at MLG.TV. For more information, I’d recommend following MLG on Twitter @MLG.
