Teams to watch

There are recognizable contenders for the weekly crowns within this event. Group A, which will run dungeons between April 22-24, has Echo as big competition. Echo won the previous two seasons of the World of Warcraft Mythic Dungeon International. The team is also known for their victory in the inaugural The Great Push tournament of 2021. More recently, Echo players became the first Race to World First Sepulcher of the First Ones champions after taking down the Jailer in 277 pulls.

Incarnation is also a team to watch out for, as they earned a place in the last season’s World of Warcraft Mythic Dungeon International right alongside Echo. Meanwhile, Perplexed from Group B will dive into the competition from April 29 to May 1. This team previously fought in the Global Finals alongside Echo, Incarnation, Obey Alliance, Team Name and Aster.Y. As for Group C, the matches will commence from May 6-8, with eight more teams eager to earn a spot in the Global Finals as well.

After these three weekends, the Last Stand Tournament will take place starting on May 20. This will be the last chance for a team to secure a place in the Global Finals. Registration for this particular tournament’s open Time Trial phase is open until May 6 at 1 p.m. EST, and interested teams can sign up via GameBattles.
