Dr Pepper Ultimate Winter Break

MLG Orlando featured the conclusion of Gamebattles Dr Pepper Ultimate Winter Break 1v1 series, in which Effiinn Ninja went up against Mac Baby. Mac Baby took the match 9-8.


During a match between Triggers Down and Classic, Triggers Down was in the process of securing a game-winning flag capture when Hysteria's Xbox froze. As a result, the game had to be replayed despite Triggers Down having pretty much won the game. In the replay, Classic won, eliminating the event-favorite Triggers Down early in the tournament. The repercussions of this incident were vast, as it lead to Pistola leaving Triggers Down for Final Boss, which positioned Final Boss for a comeback run to close out Halo 3 in 2010.


A total of $280,000 USD in prize money was awarded.
