MLG Charlotte 2007 was the first event of the 2007 MLG season, taking place at the Embassy Suites Charlotte in Charlotte, North Carolina from April 13-15, 2007. Halo 2 was played in 4v4 and FFA tournaments, alongside Rainbow Six: Vegas.

Overview

After a long, successful season, it was time for another one. There was now a $55,000 prize pool for every 4v4 tournament, with $20,000 going to the first place team. During the off-season, a flurry of team changes occurred as everyone attempted to build the best possible team to prepare for the season. The National Champions, Carbon, predictably stuck together. From there on down it was an all-out hurricane. The most publicized team change occurred on December 6th, shortly after Vegas, when Final Boss made the decision to drop longtime member Saiyan for StrongSide. Str8 Rippin shocked the scene with a huge change, dropping Cpt Anarchy and founding member Fonzi in favor of Storm Ventures duo Legit and Naded. Fonzi and Cpt Anarchy recruited KillerN of XiT Woundz and the now teamless Ramby to form Redemption. Down a player, LeGendZ recruited relatively unknown player Joe. Pyrocy and ShooK on3 teamed up with Slim and Tupac to form FBI Icon, while the other half of the former FBI squad teamed up with SK and ElamiteWarrior to form FBI The Agency. Once on top of the world, Saiyan opted to team with Neighbor, BoO and Detach as Make It Rain.

It didn't take long before Charlotte became an event to remember. In WB Round 2, two huge upsets occurred. The 4th seeded Redemption was taken out by the 20th seeded 5K, and the 6th seeded LeGendZ was taken out by the 22nd seeded PainX. In the next round, FBI The Agency pulled off a shocker as they not only defeated Carbon, but swept them, taking a 3-0 victory. 5K continued their upset streak, taking out 5th seeded FBI Icon as well. The Agency put an end to 5K's streak in the Winners' Semifinals, taking a 3-1 victory, while Final Boss took out a Str8 Rippin boasting a formerly perfect record. The upsets continued in the Losers' Bracket, with 8th seeded Make It Rain being eliminated in round 2 by the 23rd seeded Infamous. In the following round, LeGendZ and Redemption were eliminated by Type-Z and Nice Like Rice, respectively, ending their tournaments with a top 16 finish. In the next round, Time 2 Prove took out XiT Woundz for a top 12 finish. Meanwhile, Carbon mowed through the Losers' bracket, defeating FBI Icon and Str8 Rippin before ending 5K's impressive run with a 4th place finish.

In the Winners' Finals, Final Boss narrowly defeated The Agency, taking a close game 5 victory. This sent the FBI squad to the Losers' bracket for a rematch with Carbon, the team they had a 3-0 advantage over. At one point, the series was 5-1 for the Agency, but Carbon's never-say-die attitude prevailed, as they made an astounding comeback, winning five straight games to take the series in 11 games and move on to the finals. In the finals, things started off well for Carbon, jumping out to a 2-1 lead, but Final Boss would win the last two games and make the comeback, winning for the first time since Vegas '06 and silencing the critics of the StrongSide acquisition.
