MLG Orlando 2006 was the fifth event of the 2006 MLG season, taking place at the Wyndham Orlando Resort in Orlando, Florida from August 25-27, 2006. Halo 2 was played in 4v4 and FFA/1v1 tournaments, alongside Super Smash Bros. Melee.

Overview

Following Chicago, some major team changes occurred. Carbon, though competing with everyone, was struggling to maintain consistency and grab the #1 spot. They opted to drop StrongSide and pick up GH057ayame formerly of eX. Defy felt Str8 Rippin was no longer the right team for him, so he left to reform LeGendZ with Vash, Mack and the newest free agent, StrongSide. In Defy's place, Str8 Rippin brought back Cpt Anarchy.

Competition was tight in the early rounds of the tournament. In the 3rd round, 5th seeded Storm Ventures narrowly defeated 4th seeded LeGendZ, while 2nd seeded Str8 Rippin narrowly defeated 6th seeded XiT Woundz. Chicago's 4th place shooK On3 gaming took a top 12 placing as they were eliminated by FBI GamerGraffix.com, well known as the former Michigan squad that upset Carbon in Anaheim. Another upset occurred in the next Losers' Bracket round when 8th seeded Vanity Gaming took out 4th seeded LeGendZ, sending them home with an 8th place finish. In the Winners' Semifinals, Final Boss and Carbon steamrolled over Storm Ventures and Str8 Rippin, leading to a Winners' Finals clash between FB and the new Carbon roster. Carbon made a statement, defeating FB 3-1 and knocking them into the Losers' Bracket for the first time since they went by Team 3D. After ending FBI GamerGraffix and Storm Ventures' tournaments, XiT Woundz found themselves in a rematch with Str8 Rippin and were defeated 6-3 for a 4th place finish. Waiting for the winner in the LB Finals, Final Boss destroyed Str8 Rippin and advanced to the Finals for another shot at Carbon. They took it to ten games, but were unable to overcome the deficit from the WB Finals. After almost two years of losing to Final Boss and Team 3D as IGS, Team Phreaks and Carbon, ShocKWav3, Karma and Gandhi's team had finally pulled one off on them, going into the two big money events of the season.
