Blizzard has this week announced a new Mythic Dungeon Invitational event which will allow exceptional World of Warcraft players to battle it out for a share of $100,000.
The Mythic Dungeon Invitational event has been created to expand the “fast-paced, highly competitive world of Mythic Keystone dungeons” explains Blizzard.
The event will take place from July 26th to August 9th, during which teams will aim to secure an invitation to the top 32 that will then challenge their way through Mythic Keystone dungeons to achieve their best scores possible.
Blizzard explains more:
We’re looking for the best players in the world, but first you need to show us you have the right stuff to compete. Teams aspiring to battle on the global stage must first push themselves through a gauntlet of Mythic Keystone dungeons, taking on increasingly difficult Mythic Keystones and earning the best scores on the Proving Grounds.
Top scoring contenders will be invited to join as one of 32 outstanding teams from around the world, competing for a share of the $100,000 prize pool—and ultimately claiming bragging rights of the #1 spot. Once chosen, 8 teams from the Americas, 8 from Europe, 8 from China, and 8 from Asia-Pacific will be tapped to face the challenge, proving they have what it takes to go all the way to the finals.
At the end of the two weeks, they’ll need to submit their top score using this form. Note that any entries received prior to the end of the Proving Grounds period (August 9) will not be considered. Remember, to be truly competitive among the World of Warcraft elite, your team must master multiple dungeons. We’ll be judging performance across the 5 dungeons in which the team achieves the highest Keystone Level during those two weeks.
▪ Keystone levels and affixes will be determined by Blizzard
▪ The first match of each series will take place in a dungeon pre-determined by Blizzard.
▪ Once the final 8 regional teams have been determined, they’ll move on to a single-elimination bracket where they’ll go head-to-head.
