MLG Meadowlands 2007 was the second event of the 2007 MLG season, taking place at the Meadowlands Expo Center in Secaucus, New Jersey from June 8-10, 2007. Halo 2 was played in 4v4 and FFA tournaments, alongside Rainbow Six: Vegas and Gears of War.

Overview

Following the flurry of upsets and new arrivals in Charlotte, it didn't take long for a team change hurricane to occur. The top four teams - Final Boss, Carbon, FBI The Agency and 5K stuck together. Following their disappointing performance in Charlotte, Cpt Anarchy and Fonzi of Redemption joined LeGendZ, replacing Mack and Joe. KillerN returned to his former team XiT Woundz, replacing Lightking. The biggest shakeup however, happened when Legit and Naded decided to leave Str8 Rippin in late May, in favor of rejoining Ramby on his new Perfect Storm team with Xtrem1st. This left Tsquared and Foulacy needing two players with not much time remaining until the event. To fill the huge void left by the skilled duo, they recruited rising star Neighbor and a player who had recently placed top 8 - BigTimer. Another late change was the addition of TimeliestBrute to the FBI ICON lineup, replacing Pyrocy.

Starting the event off well, Perfect Storm predictably breezed through the Open Bracket, earning a spot in the Championship Bracket as the 22nd seed. They took out 6th seeded Nice Like Rice early before defeating The Agency in a close series in the following round. The new Str8 Rippin lineup didn't fare well against 5K, losing 3-1 to the talented new squad in the 3rd round. Unfortunately for 5K, they would meet Final Boss in the next round, and be sent to the Losers' bracket after a 3-1 loss. Perfect Storm fared slightly better against Carbon, managing to take 2 games, but the result was still the same, and the WB Finals would once again be between the two juggernaut teams of MLG. In Losers' Round 3, LeGendZ was taken out by XiT Woundz, meaning another top 16 finish for former staples of the top 3 - Cpt Anarchy and Fonzi. In the following round, Str8 Rippin was defeated by Nice Like Rice, ending their night with a top 12 finish, the lowest ever for the team. Nice Like Rice's run would come to an end in Round 6, where they met up with - and lost to - Perfect Storm. On the other side of the bracket, The Agency took a close 5 game series from 5K, setting up a rematch in the Losers' Semis. In 10 games, Perfect Storm came out on top, moving onto the Losers' Finals to face the loser between Final Boss and Carbon. Final Boss took the series, winning 3-2 and awaiting the Losers' finalist. Perfect Storm made a valiant comeback effort, but were ousted in 10 games, setting up yet another Carbon-Final Boss Grand Finals. This time, it took FB only 4 more games to take the series, and the event.
