Metal Gear Online World Championships Announced

By now, you should have been able to log plenty of hours playing Metal Gear Online. And if you're a true hardcore lover of MGO, you might just net yourself a free trip to Japan.

Yesterday, Konami and Major League Gaming announced that they've opened up registration for the impending Metal Gear Online World Championship. If you think you've got what it takes, you can head on over to the official site and sign up for a shot at taking on the best of the best. When most of the dust has settled, the top two teams from the North American Qualifier will visit the Tokyo Games Show for the final showdown against the greatest from Europe, Japan, and Asia. All winners will receive a piece of the prizes and $8,000 that's there for the taking. But you don't have much longer to decide; the North American Qualifier ends September 8, so you had best get a move on. And if you need a bit more time practicing, we suggest blocking out a large portion of your calendar right now.

Metal Gear Online had its fair share of problems when it first launched, but since then, Konami has worked to calm the servers down and according to most players, it's a much smoother experience these days. So now's a good time to kick off such a competition, isn't it?

i love mgo but i come from a socom background so its hard for me to play anything other than socom or call of duty 4. the only complaint i have about mgo is the lack of communication between team members. ive never played a game on mgo where everyone used teamwork and communicated. socom is the only game ive played online where ppl at least try and communicate and use teamwork. i played mgo on the ps2 to and it was the same then.

The only reason why MGO is 'smoother' and the 'servers have been calmed down', is because after an initial rush everyone realised how rubbish it was and decided to go back to cod4 for the online experience.

I want to play my MG4/online but I'm sooo caught up in my sports games I recently bought at Toys R' Us for under 10 bucks each. I got Allstar Football 2k8 with a hockey game,basketball,baseball,and blazing angels...and the football game probably not the greatest football game...i'm having a blast with it. Its sad...I really should finish games before buying new ones XD
