The first season of World of Warcraft Dragonflight's Mythic Dungeon International will begin later this month, with the best WoW dungeon speedrunners preparing to compete.
The time trials for the new season were completed earlier this month, and now teams will compete for one of the eight Global Finals spots in order to take a piece of the $300,000 prize pool.
Following Time Trials, the qualifying teams will be divided into three groups of eight to make up 24 teams in total. Beginning later this month, each group of eight will have a designated weekend in which they will compete to win their group, with the top two teams from each group advance.
After all three groups have played, a Last Stand Tournament will give other teams the chance to secure the final two spots in the Global Finals. The head-to-head dungeon racing tournaments will be double elimination and will utilize a best-of-three format.
When does the first MDI for WoW Dragonflight Season 1 take place?
The Group Stage of this season's MDI will begin this weekend on Friday and run through Sunday. Each group will be played out on successive weekends: Group B will start February 24 to 26, and Group C will begin March 3 to 5. All broadcasts for the tournament will begin at 12:00pm CT.
The Last Stand Tournament, which is open to signups until February 27, will run from March 10 to 12. Blizzard has not provided further information. All broadcasts can be seen on the official Warcraft Twitch and YouTube channels, including French, German, and Spanish.
