MLG Philadelphia 2005, also known as Halo Nationals 2, was the sixth event of the 2005 MLG season, and the sequel to MLG Philadelphia 2004 (Halo Nationals), taking place at the Pennsylvania Convention Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania from July 28-31, 2005. Halo 2 was played in 4v4 and FFA tournaments, and Halo: CE was played in 4v4, 2v2 and FFA tournaments, alongside Super Smash Bros. Melee and Tekken 5.


Following yet another win by the dominant Team 3D squad in St. Louis, the competition shuffled around again. Zyos, Foulacy and Fonzi - formerly of MLG Rockford - joined Tsquared - formerly of Exigent - to reform Str8 Rippin. ShockWav3 and Sergio of second place team iGameSpot did not attend. The other two members, McGavin and Gandhi, joined Defy, Mack and Vash on team RoS, and KillerN, Tupac and Ronin on team GU, respectively. The event itself was unique in that only Team Slayer gametypes were played. It was also the first event in 2005 where Team 3D were defeated, losing in the finals to Str8 Rippin. Following their loss, they would skip the next three MLG events, opting instead to compete in the VGL $10,000 event in Orlando.

The event also featured side Halo: CE 4v4, 2v2 and FFA tournaments, prompting some pros from the 2002-04 days to return for the event, some of whom competed in the Halo 2 tournament as well. The most notable example is team Tunnel Vision, composed of Strangepurple, Pray4U, NistiC and Quinn. Though they lost in the Halo 2 tournament, Team 3D also competed in the CE event, which they won.


  • All 4v4 matches are played on Team Slayer gametype
  • Pool Play
  • Double-Elimination, best of 5 series
    • Extended Series rule: best of 11 series starting 3-0, 3-1 or 3-2 based on result of previous meeting
