MLG Los Angeles 2005 was the tenth event of the 2005 MLG season, taking place at the Hilton in Costa Mesa, California from October 14-16, 2005. Halo 2 was played in 4v4 and FFA tournaments, alongside Super Smash Bros. Melee and Tekken 5.

Overview

The 2005 season kicked into overdrive at MLG Los Angeles, dubbed the Western Conference Championship, the first of three Conference Championships for the 2005 season. Teams were no longer granted immediate entry into the Championship Bracket. Only certain players were invited based on their performance over the season, while the remaining teams had to play through a "Last Chance Qualifier (LCQ)" bracket. The 4v4 prize pool increased to $18,700, and guaranteed payouts for the top 8 teams. An additional prize pool of $1,300 was added for the FFA for a total of $20,000 up for grabs. This ushered in the return of Team 3D, and the other top teams bolstered up their rosters in preparation. Tsquared and Foulacy recruited Fonzi and Cpt Anarchy for TmG, while Team EG recruited budding superstar Strongside. Defy and Vash of Monglers Legendz recruited Mack and Toxin to round out their roster. In the end, Team 3D did what they were best at, and took out all of their competition on the way to another tournament win.
