If you haven't been following GotFrag's coverage of the MLG 3v3 Tourney
going down in Orlando this weekend, you really are missing out. Coverage kicks in again this morning at 9am Eastern, 6am Pacific. After the warmups, I believe
the opening matchup will be Evil Geniuses (formerly Frag Dominant
) up against Orz, formerly sponsored by MoB Gaming
Let me give you a little background on this matchup. Evil Geniuses came into the last tournament as Frag Dominant. While they were never a complete unknown, most of them had never experienced the LAN
tournament setting before. They managed to wow us and their competition by proving themselves capable of running multiple compositions between the three of them, and running them very
well. In the end, they came out as the victors
after a long series against Nihilum
Orz was formerly sponsored by MoB Gaming, and one of their members is the fan favorite Hafu
. Last month, they were slammed with a pretty major upset. They didn't do very well at all, and it actually led to their team losing sponsorship. MoB Gaming replaced them for this month's tourney. Now in Orlando, Orz has made a fantastic comeback, beating out both the SK Gaming
the team MoB replaced them with. I bet MoB isn't feeling so hot right now.
First thing this morning, these two will be going head to head (I think). Even if you're not a PvP fan, you have to admit that's a pretty cool showdown, no?
