MLG Chicago 2007 was the fourth event of the 2007 MLG season, taking place at the Pheasant Run Resort & Spa in St. Charles, Illinois from August 17-19, 2007. Halo 2 was played in 4v4 and FFA tournaments, alongside Rainbow Six: Vegas, Gears of War and Shadowrun.

Overview

After Dallas, a storm of team changes occurred. The most prominent was Tsquared and Neighbor of Str8 Rippin replacing Havok and Mimic with ElamiteWarrior from FBI The Agency and a returning Legit from Perfect Storm. This left the 3rd seeded Agency down a player, so they picked up Naded from Perfect Storm. Perfect Storm, now down two players, filled out their roster with circuit veteran Fonzi and relative newcomer Soviet. 8th seeded FBI ICON opted to replace Butt3rZ (who joined PainX) and veteran member Tupac with Havok and Mimic. The struggling LeGendZ, now down a player after the departure of Fonzi, looked to improve with the acquisition of Dysphoria.

With the exception of Nice Like Rice, beaten in Winners' Round 2 by Time 2 Prove, the top 8 seeds squared off in Round 3. Final Boss took it to FBI ICON, not dropping a game. 5K narrowly defeated the new Perfect Storm lineup, taking a 5 game series. The Agency destroyed Time 2 Prove, and the new Str8 Rippin lineup made a huge statement, 3-0ing Carbon. Final Boss then defeated 5K 3-1 while Str8 Rippin did the same to The Agency. In Losers' Round 3, Nice Like Rice were again upset, being eliminated by 13th seeded Perfect Balance. In the same round, XiT Woundz was eliminated by 17th seeded FBI Active Rush, while 20th seeded Versus, who had previously upset Perfect Balance in Winners' Round 1, took out Type-Z. Versus and Perfect Balance continued their runs in the next round, eliminating Nice Like Rice and Perfect Storm, respectively. FBI ICON was upset by PainX, while Carbon destroyed Active Rush. In the following round, PainX took a narrow victory over Perfect Balance, while Carbon breezed through Versus. PainX were then swept by The Agency, while Carbon made short work of 5K. In a shocker, Carbon lost 3-0 to The Agency, resulting in their lowest placing at the time - 4th. In the Winners' Finals, Final Boss took the win over Str8 Rippin 3-1. Str8 met up with the Agency for a rematch in the Losers' Finals, and the Agency were unable to make the comeback, ultimately losing 6-3. Str8 Rippin went on to lose to Final Boss 6-1, but the silver lining was that they were back in the Finals for the first time since Dallas 2006, with Tsquared being the only remaining member from the 2006 season.

In the FFA, the young iGotUrPisto1a edged out the competition for the second time in the season.
