These eight teams will continue to fight for the best time, aiming to advance further into the tournament. Unlike the best-of-three and double elimination matches, the grand finals will be a best-of-five.

All of the esports action will be broadcast live on the official World of Warcraft YouTube channel. In addition to English, there will be streams in French, German, Korean, Russian and Spanish.

Journey to the WoW MDI Global Finals

The third season of WoW MDI kicked off in April, and the top 24 teams from the Time Trials phase were divided into three groups of eight. The next few weeks showcased the prowess of various teams, with a total of six teams advancing to the July 8-10 games.

While Echo kicked off the first week with a 2-0 victory and Baldy earned a spot for taking the silver, Monka became the champions of the second week. Since Perplexed got second place in that leg, they also advanced to the WoW MDI Global Finals.

Next, Donuts and Despair and Sloth earned a place in the upcoming tournament by taking home the weekly gold and silver, respectively. After Long Ming won WoW MDI China 3-1, W Omegalul claimed victory in the Last Stand Tournament. The addition of Long Ming and W Omegalul meant a total of eight teams in the WoW MDI Global Finals.
