The World of Warcraft Mythic Dungeon International Global Season 1 Finals will begin Friday, April 23. From April 23 to 25, the world’s top teams will compete for the World Champions title and a share of the $300,000 prize pool.
What to expect at the MDI Global Finals
The event will start off with four matches. Echo faces Stygia first. Last month, Echo secured their spot in the event by taking the Cup 4 tournament crown.
Obey Alliance will go up against Does Gargoyle Stream? in the second match, while Perplexed will face Just So So. As for PI Me, they will first compete with the Golden Guardians.
Each of these teams will participate in a series of best-of-three and double-elimination matches. However, the final match will be a best-of-five. The maps in play for the last series of matches will be Necrotic Wake, Halls of Atonement, Mists of Tirna Scithe, De Other Side and Halls of Atonement once again. Keystones will also be set to level 20.
Mythic Dungeon International predictions
The casters of the event have already made their predictions about the tournament.
Dan “AutomaticJak” Anzenberger said he is curious about PI Me’s performance, since the team achieved wins through out-innovating their opponents and quickly adjusting to the meta.
Meanwhile, Tristan “Dratnos” Killeen said he cannot wait to see how the game and format changes will shake things up. He noted that Echo is a favorite, but there are several teams that could prove to be a challenge against them.
“PI Me has been ramping HARD in the past few cups and if that trajectory continues, we could see an impressive upset from them,” Dratnos said. “It’d also be irresponsible to count out Perplexed who have taken cups off Echo this season and last season!”
As for Caroline “Naguura” Forer, she is looking forward to possible upsets because of the keystone changes and shifts in meta.
“Perplexed has a big chance of winning too, since they were a team that also performed well in the first Shadowlands cup, proving that they are also really good at innovating routes,” Naguura added. “Many times, they have had better or more efficient routes than Echo, so I am really looking forward to seeing those two teams competing.”
Similar to AutomaticJak and Dratnos, Peyton “Tettles” Tettleton also had thoughts on Pi Me. Tettles noted that the team could end up with compositions that others haven’t seen yet.
“I really am excited to see if teams run different compositions for the same dungeon,” he added. “It is always super exciting when teams come up with two different answers for the same problem comp wise. This season feels like there are two primary compositions that teams play and if they’re playing different variations that would be cool.”
