Here’s the medal design for this year:

Last year, OpTic Gaming took first place with the Gold Medal prize. MLG and ESPN did not have a prize money at the X Games last year.

You can watch the action LIVE on MLG.tv/ProLeague. We’ll be providing coverage of the event throughout the weekend on our Twitter feed. Be sure to follow us!

    • Will WilFredo Mendoza

      Lol you call this on topic? What a fucking idiot.

      • ScOott

        It was just a joke, hasn’t took over the whole comment section like your doing with your nonsense ..

    The bronze medal actually looks nicer than the gold and silver.. Who ever designed them is backwards ..

  • Will WilFredo Mendoza

    Pretty much proved my point that Keshav prefers those idiots comments than my insulting comment? Lol Pathetic and low.

    • ScOott

      No one has said anything in this article, your such a fool ..

    • Keshav Bhat

      idiotic comments are better than rude, hateful comments. no need to hate on people man.

      • Spodermen

        • ccrows

          You truly are either a squeaker, or possibly an old man that’s never been laid.

          *yawn* Wake me up whenever you decide to comment on the article itself, since you rarely do my little internet warrior.

          PS. I’ll spare you Palin, this one time…

          • Spodermen

            Suk deez nutz fagit

          • ccrows

            Ouch, truth hurts huh?…

      • MichiganerE

        If he does, he does. If he doesn’t, he doesn’t. Honestly though, he “retire” and return to MLG $w4g tournaments 100 or more times during BO3’s life-cycle.

  • Ryumoau

    will this also be shown on any of the ESPN tv channels? That would be pretty cool if they did. 🙂

    • Keshav Bhat

      As far as I am aware, certain highlights might be on ESPN

      • Ryumoau

        cool. 🙂

  • I_HAV2_POOP_AGAIN

    So what are the rules and regulations of MLG?
    What size tv screen?
    How many feet away from the screen?
    What kind of headphones?
    Can you have any mods to the controller (extended sticks)?

    • http://tinyurl.com/mlgvrules

      At Lan Events they use 24″ Gaming Monitors.
      Only a few feet away from the screen. It’s at table or a desk.
      Technically any headphones, but usually Astro A40s. Or atleast somekind of gaming headset with virtual surround sound. PC which isn’t competitive for CoD, sadly, only needs decent stereo headphones because of software.
      Pros play on the Xbox One.
      Only some mods are allowed. Like extended sticks or Scuf or Cinch Controllers.

    • Spodermen

      I juzt uze mi dik az monitor so abut 600 inches. whiel I et duh muntin due en duritoes.

  • Juses

    Charlie Intel now is just people talking like dolan, and people complaing about people who talk like Dolan and that it’s ruining Charlie Intel. The people that’s complaing is being really hypocritical, you’re complaing about people talking “stupid” and not contributing to the conversation. Yet all those people only comment hating on Me, ScOott, Spodermen etc… aren’t talking about the article either. Those people literally just comment to hate on us 90% of the time. In my opinion I’d rather see people talking like Dolan than only seeing hate comments.

    • Spodermen

      Juses u have joined duh dark sied u tlking liek a fagit. but I loek past it doe cuz it waz tru

    • ccrows

      It’s simple, let’s go back to talking about the article itself. I’ll be more than happy to cut out the Palin crap, if we can agree to cut the Dolan BS out too. LET’S ACTUALLY TALK ABOUT THE ARTICLES!

      I’ve been talking about the articles. However, don’t act like you’re all innocent in this either. You’re pretty much the poster boy that started all this Dolan trolling BS stuff…

      • Juses

        Wer nut trollin. Wer jus talken wut sweg soe beh quiet n stap haten.

        • ccrows

          and you’re not contributing to the article either.

          I asked you who you thought was gonna win the tourney, and yet you still keep going on with the old Dolan joke…

          • Juses

            Step pusten det fakin gif. Etz wurse den teh wey eye telk

          • ccrows

            I promise to stop trolling (oh that’s right posting swag *rolls eyes*) when you guys do.

            Let’s all please just stick to talking about the articles itself then…

    • ccrows

      Also BTW do you have a favorite in this tourney?

      I’ll go with Optic, even without Nadeshot, I still think they’ll win…

      • Juses

        Denial, er yew heppy nao

        • ccrows

          Good, hope your team wins & hopefully you can let the Dolan stuff go too.

          Let’s ALL stay on topic with these articles going forward then please…

          • Spodermen

            fuk u bich westien ur insugnicunt life tryen 2 stahp duh revulutiion

          • ccrows

            WHAT REVOLUTION?!

            The joke is 5+ years old. Let me guess you just upgraded from Dial-up to basic DSL where you live. Get with the times bro…

            http://a.fod4.com/misc/palinraisetheroof.gif

          • Spodermen

          • ccrows

            THAT’S THE ENTIRE POINT! IT’S A TONGUE IN CHEEK JOKE AT YOU DOLAN GUYS WITH THE OLD JOKE THAT YOU KEEP GOING ON WITH! LMAO!

            Seriously, You are either a squeaker, (especially with your classy comment a few posts above) or a teenager that has jokes easily going over your head.

            TBH I actually like when you respond “sometimes”, you entertain me when stuff flies over your head, that you should be catching… lol
