There are four classes for the World of Warcraft Mythic Dungeon International, and they’ve all received updates this week. Looking at each one, I can’t help but wonder why they decided to update the content in the first place. I mean, this is a game that’s already fairly combat intensive.
Blizzard is turning the Mythic Dungeon International (MDI) event into a series of annual events, as the developer opts to phase out the original format of randomly generated dungeons and replace it with a system that will create four themed dungeons each year.
You can make fun of MMORPG esports all you want, but Blizzard is offering a nice sum of money to participate in the World of Warcaft Mythic Dungeon International Tournament. This week, the company announced a change in the format of its Raider sports tournament, which will raise $380,000.
Over the past few years, we have continued to refine the IDM structure based on feedback from players and viewers, as well as our own experience with competitive PvE, Blizzard said. In the second season, we take it a step further by dropping the trophies and introducing a new structure.
After the success of the first season and the Big Push, we want to test the limits of the Core MDI program and challenge teams to prove that they are the best dungeons in the world. During the first season, Thames struggled to find the time to participate in the weekly time trials and qualify for the Broadcasting Cup. This format led to fatigue among the players and also reduced the commitment of the games as the same teams continued to compete in the cup each week. For our second season, we are introducing a new three-phase system, designed to reduce the demands on each team and make every moment count. The time trials will determine which teams advance to the group stage, where $80,000 in prize money will be awarded over four weekends. The top six teams from the global region groups, the best team from China and the last team from the new Last Stand tournament will qualify for the global finals, where $300,000 in prize money will be raffled off.
