MLG Dallas 2006 was the second event of the 2006 MLG season, taking place at the Embassy Suites in Frisco, Texas from May 19-21, 2006. Halo 2 was played in 4v4 and FFA tournaments, alongside Super Smash Bros. Melee.

Overview

Very few major team changes happened between New York and the following event in Dallas. In fact, the top six team rosters from New York all stayed completely intact. This lead to an event quite similar to the previous one. Final Boss steamrolled through the competition as usual, dropping games only to their opponent in the WB Finals and Grand Finals - Str8 Rippin. On their road to the finals, Str8 Rippin met up with Carbon twice, the team they had 6-0'd in New York. Carbon was much tougher in Dallas, having hired xXx as a coach, which was a relatively new thing in the competitive Halo scene. Under xXx's guidance, Carbon took Str8 to an 11-game series in the LB finals, but were still unable to take them down. eX (formerly MoBDeep.net) improved on their placing in New York with a 4th place finish, while Storm Ventures proved that their 6th place finish in New York wasn't a fluke, taking a 5th place finish. XiT Woundz (formerly Check Six) experienced a downward trend, losing early to eX and being eliminated by MoBDeep. This would be the catalyst for the intensely competitive Zyos' retirement.
