Echo versus Stygia
The first day of the Mythic Dungeon International Global Finals began with Echo versus Stygia. Each team fought for the best time in the Mists of Tirna Scithe dungeon. Echo earned the first win through the combined efforts of shaman, mage, druid, paladin and demon hunter.
In game two, the teams fought in the Necrotic Wake dungeon. Echo had a strong start with consistent burst damage, while Stygia lost time due to a full team wipe. Echo kept moving on, cleared trash mobs and defeated Nalthor the Rimebinder, which led to another win.
With a score of 2-0, Echo moved forward in the upper bracket of the Mythic Dungeon International Global Finals.
Does Gargoyle Stream? versus Obey Alliance
Up next was Does Gargoyle Stream? versus Obey Alliance. The dungeon lineup consisted of Sanguine Depths, De Other Side and Plaguefall.
Both teams’ fire mage players were on top of the damage-per-second charts during the start of the first game, with Does Gargoyle Stream? taking down the first pull and forging on a few seconds ahead. Soon after, the team took down the first boss while Obey Alliance went up against a Manifestation of Pride.
During the final dungeon boss, both teams went head-to-head, with Does Gargoyle Stream? dealing damage to General Kaal first. However, Obey Alliance quickly caught up with the help of their shadow priest and achieved victory.
Although Does Gargoyle Stream? came out on top in game two by defeating Mueh’zala the fastest, it was not enough as the opposing team took the series 2-1 in game three and earned a place in the upper bracket.
Perplexed versus Just So So
With Obey Alliance and Echo earning a spot in the upper bracket, it was then time for Perplexed versus Just So So.
Perplexed had a reset on first boss in Spires of Ascension, as the players went out of Kin-Tara’s aggro range. The time cost them later on as the opposing team claimed the win.
Perplexed brought it back in game two by tying the series 1-1 against the opposing team in Theater of Pain. They continued to do well in Necrotic Wake. Perplexed defeated Nalthor the Rimebinder first with the combined efforts of demon hunter, paladin, death knight, mage and priest.
PI Me versus Golden Guardians
The final matchup of the day was between PI Me and the Golden Guardians.
Game one in the Halls of Atonement dungeon was a close match as both teams raced to take down Lord Chamberlain. However, the Golden Guardians defeated the final boss first and claimed victory.
The team received another point in the Plaguefall dungeon after overcoming Margrave Stradama. By taking the series 2-0 against PI Me, the Golden Guardians earned a spot in the upper bracket.
This means Echo will go up against Obey Alliance, while Perplexed will fight the Golden Guardians in the upper bracket. Meanwhile, Stygia will face Does Gargoyle Stream? in the lower bracket. As for PI Me, they will duke it out against Just So So.
