MLG Anaheim is just over a week away, and the more we learn about it, the harder it is to wait. You already know who's in the Pools. You know that Boxer, DRG, MMA, and MVP are coming, and that Choya and Ganzi will be playing in the Open Bracket. You've seen the schedule of streamed Friday matches. But even all of that isn't the full story.
Debuts, Reappearances, Veterans
The Open Bracket in Anaheim is so full of talent that it's practically a Championship Bracket of its own. Spanishiwa will be coming, for his first MLG ever. So will Millenium's ToD, dignitas.Merz, and Warcraft 3's SonkiE. These newcomers are joined by some players who we haven't seen on the Pro Circuit in a while: WhiteRa, Jinro, and Ajtls (LastShadow). Welcome back! And in addition to SlayerSAlicia, SlayerSGanzi, and ChoyafOu, two more Korean players will be hitting the Open Bracket: FnaticRain and FXOz (Twilight).
Apart from new and long-lost players, the Open Bracket is also packed with veteran talent. Here's just a sample of who'll be battling for the title the hard way:
SixJax's Vibe, Major, Skew, and dde
EG's DeMusliM, Axslav, LZGaMeR & StrifeCro
coL's FireZerg, Ryze, Catz, and Stalife
In short, the Open Bracket is insane.
