Hmm only 32 teams per event? Seems a little low I would expect a much larger turnout. Just a little heads up to people who are unfamiliar with MLG. Spots fill up very quickly so if you plan on actually going you need to know for sure and get your passes right away when they become available. I know in other games MLG signs "Pro" players and they delegate a certain amount of passes to the pros automatically. So if WoW is successful in MLG this year they will probably do the same. Who wants to be a pro WoW player raise your hand...!?...haha

They probably aren't allowing that many spots for WoW because they could only get a certain amount of the HP Blackbird 002 PCs from sponsorship or they aren't certain how well WoW will do as an e-sport live.

It will be interesting to see what kind of UI they allow the competitors to use at LAN. I know many players rely on a bunch of mods in arena. I'm not sure how Blizz is doing it for LAN but MLG will probably run the same kind of format as the arena tourney.

Anyways, looks pretty sweet MLG has picked this up and there would be no more blaming of lag when a kick or pummel misses :)
