Congratulations goes out to all competitors that gamed in the tournament, who battled on 9 different games in 59 days. The last 5 games had either not been played before in the 15 year history of the MGL, or had not been played again for over 10 years. That's a minimum of 10 years wait on each of the last 5 games.

7 gamers made their MGL debut. These were: Almorte, Busty34, Charlie Milne, Conjured Entertainment, Jogador Rabugento, Michael Kibbey and Lauren Tyler. I hope you all enjoyed the competition and the challenge.



With 9 games contested there were 6 different game winners. megaderek (3), JasonV91 (2), Conjured Entertainment (1), DaLar (1), ILLSeaBass (1) and syscrusher (1).

At the completion of this tournament, RMacauley now joins kane in MGL history, as the only gamers to play all of the games in 29 x MGL tournaments. 29 complete tournaments are the highest anyone has achieved. John73 missed the last game of this tournament, and therefore remains in 3rd place with 25 complete tournaments.

Congratulations to Derek Long who won 3 games and scored in the 90s for all of the other games to win his 1st ever MGL title. The title lead was in constant flux since the start of the tournament, where Derek Long, Jason Vasiloff and Matt Sales competed at extraordinary levels to make this finish for the Top 3, the equal 2nd closest in MGL history.

Playing in the MGL is being part of video gaming history. The MGL is now in its 15th year and as always, all gamers have been welcome to participate in the toughest open video gaming championship of the world. The gamers make the tournament exciting and very challenging, and a big thank you goes out to all you gamers with the courage and tenacity to participate in such a demanding competition.

Whether a casual, pro or experienced gamer, I hope you all enjoyed MGLXLII. This was the last tournament of the 2019 season. It was amazing. The Mystery Prize Draw will commence shortly.
