One piece of Dragonflight’s post-launch period that we haven’t seen yet is the arrival of the Mythic Dungeon International. After already narrowing the top 24 down via Time Trials, the competitive group stages will kick off this weekend, February 17-19th.
Blizzard has also released a new trailer for the championship season’s start, showing off just some of what awaits in this first Dragonflight MDI run. The group stages begin February 17-19th, when the eight teams in Group A will compete. February 24th-26th will see the eight teams in Group B do the same. With Group C competing from March 3rd-5th.
There will be a last stand group from March 10-12th, which is open to anyone who wants to sign up (through February 27th) and give it a shot. These four groups will all compete, with the top two dungeon running teams from each headed into the final round.
Of course, everything will be streamed live on the Warcraft Twitch and YouTube channels, with each of the group sessions beginning at 10 AM PST on the relevant dates.
What this is all leading up to is the first Dragonflight Mythic Dungeon International Championship. The global finals will feature the top two teams from each group who’ll go on to to compete for the championship, which will be determined in April. The winner will get a share of the $300,000 prize pool, with another $120,000 pledged in the form of $30,000 awards for each group.
Blizzard has unveiled the broadcast talent for the event season, and will also be inviting some of the competitors to stream their own perspectives via a new round of watch parties. As for the competition broadcast talent, those officially on board are:
