The World Series of Video Games is a completely different company. I know some MLG players played in the event but they did not have anything to do with it.

Not a fan of Halo but they do a pretty good job with their broadcast. At least you can see what is going on compared to some other shows I have seen over the years.

Good point. Major League Gaming-sponsored teams competed on the televised events, but for clarity, the World Series of Video Games is managed by Games Media Properties, a division of the talent and entertainment company William Morris Agency. GMP also happens to be the people responsible for GameRiot.
