MLG unveils Pro Points as new seeding system

MLG Pro Points to change how players are ranked

Major League Gaming has announced and detailed a brand-new system for determining seeding and rankings for the eSports organization’s future competitions: MLG Pro Points.

Pro Points will decide where players are to be placed among multiple tiers — Pro, Diamond, Platinum, Gold, Silver, and Bronze — based on said players’ performances in MLG pro circuit events, online tournaments, and online ladders. Pros will consist of the top two percent of each MLG arena using the new system and can total no more than 100 players per arena.

The first event to begin using the Pro Points system will be the North American Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 Xbox 360 tournament this Sunday, August 4. Other titles that are the first to introduce the new system are Gears of War: Judgement, Madden 25, DOTA 2, NBA 2K13, and FIFA Soccer 13. The first pro circuit event to use these rankings will be the Pro Championships from November 22-24 in Columbus, OH.

Online tournaments will also feature different levels with regards to the number of points competitors can receive. These will be ranked as the 250 Series, 2000 Series, and 5000 Series.

Points will also degrade over time as a means to ensure only the most recently active top players are ranked appropriately. Any points that are more than three months old will run at 75 percent of their initial value, which will drop to 50 percent after six months, 25 percent after nine months, and finally zero percent after a year.

Players who wish to check their points after earning them will be able to do so by going to either the Standings page or their own profile page. Players who go inactive for a month or longer will be removed from the rankings, but keep their Pro Points should they return.

This new system is currently in beta and more games are planned to join in the future. To find out more about the MLG Pro Points system and how the points are distributed, be sure to check out MLG’s full FAQ through the source link below.
