MLG Anaheim 2006 was the third event of the 2006 MLG season, taking place at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, California from June 23-25, 2006. Halo 2 was played in 4v4 and FFA/1v1 tournaments, alongside Super Smash Bros. Melee.

Overview

The biggest change between Dallas and Anaheim happened when Halo legend Zyos decided to retire after two poor placings on team XiT Woundz. To fill the void, XiT Woundz picked up Sir Samurai. Following a 4th place finish, things looked good for the future of team eX, but GH057ayame was unable to attend Anaheim, so the team picked up Mack as a temporary replacement. 11th seeded Triggers Down made a big change, replacing Fossik and Solshy with Toxin and ToxinsNeighbor, looking to improve on their top 16 finish in Dallas. The 14th seeded OLR Michigan, absent at MLG Dallas, returned at this event looking to turn heads.

Two shockers occurred early in the tournament, when OLR Michigan and Triggers Down knocked Carbon and Storm Ventures, respectively, out in Winners Bracket Round 2. Michigan went on to knock Triggers Down out, only losing to Str8 Rippin in the following round. The unfortunate Storm Ventures met up with Carbon early in the Losers' Bracket, and were defeated 3-2, ending their tournament with a top 16 finish and starting a dramatic Losers' Bracket run for Carbon. They went on to destroy eX before narrowly beating MoB PowerTripBev.com, earning themselves a rematch with Michigan, who had just lost to Str8 Rippin. It took them only 4 games to turn the 3-2 deficit into a 6-4 victory, taking revenge on Michigan and moving on to face XiT Woundz, who had just taken out Triggers Down. Carbon narrowly defeated them, taking the series 3-2 and earning them a Losers' Bracket Finals match against Str8 Rippin, who had just been swept by Final Boss. Carbon dominated Str8, taking the series 3-0 and moving on to the Grand Finals against a Final Boss squad that had so far only dropped one game in the tournament. Unfortunately for Carbon, the Final Boss train could not be stopped, and FB took the series 3-0 to win their third straight event.
