The MLG Las Vegas Championships were the sixth and final event of the 2007 MLG season, taking place at the Sands Expo Center in Las Vegas, Nevada from October 12-14, 2007. Halo 2 was played in 4v4 and 1v1 tournaments, alongside Rainbow Six: Vegas, Gears of War and Shadowrun.

Overview

The top 7 teams were set. Only one spot remained in the National Championship 4v4 bracket, and every other team was fighting for it. After the grueling Open Bracket, Believe the Hype made it out and into the Playoffs. In the playoffs, team PainX ended up advancing over teams such as LeGendZ, Perfect Storm, Active Rush and Believe the Hype. PainX did not fare as well in the Championship Bracket, starting off getting 3-0'd by Final Boss. 5K were also 3-0'd by FBI The Agency. In closer matches, Nice Like Rice and FBI ICON were defeated by Str8 Rippin and Carbon, respectively. In the following round, Final Boss stayed undefeated, sweeping The Agency while Carbon took a close, tense series over Orlando's champions - Str8 Rippin. In the Losers' Bracket, 5K eliminated PainX, but could not pull anything off against Str8 Rippin, losing 3-0. FBI ICON pulled off an upset over Nice Like Rice, but could only muster one game against the Agency. In a heated match between rivals, Str8 defeated the Agency in 5 games to advance. In the Winners' Finals, Final Boss and familiar foes Carbon clashed, and Final Boss kept their undefeated streak going, winning 3-0 and going into the finals with a perfect record thus far. Not done yet, Carbon met Str8 Rippin in the Losers' Finals for a rematch, with the loser going home in 3rd place for a relatively small $40,000 prize. Carbon won the close series in 10 games, guaranteeing themselves at least $60,000 as they moved to the finals and looked to make a comeback on Final Boss. It was not to be however, as Final Boss closed out the tournament defeating Carbon 6-0. In a legendary performance, Final Boss won the 2007 National Championship without dropping a single game, closing out Halo 2 as the undisputed best.

OGRE2 was named the Boost Mobile MVP for the 2007 season.

On the 1v1 side of things, Bonfire fought through the Open FFA to earn a spot in the Playoff Bracket. Cloud would end up winning the Playoff bracket and advancing to the Championship Bracket. From there, despite an early loss to iGotUrPisto1a, Cloud would battle all the way to the Finals against Soviet, who he could not overcome. Soviet won the match to become the 2007 1v1 National Champion.

The 2007 All Star Classic featured fan-favorite players from the west and east coasts battling it out for bragging rights.
