Want to try World of Warcraft’s PvE e-sports? Join season 2 of the Mythic Dungeon Invitational
World of Warcraft and e-sports go together like coffee and donuts! Macaroni and cheese! Bubblegum and walking! Yeah maybe more like that last one. And Blizzard is not giving up making the two work. In a new stream and dev blog out today, the company discusses just how season of the Mythic Dungeon Invitational is going to work.
Like last season’s showdown, this season’s will begin with two weeks of proving grounds beginning February 27th and March 6th. “During the two-week Proving Grounds period, you’ll form a group of five friends and tackle the highest difficulty Mythic Keystone dungeons you can handle,” Blizzard explains. “Your goal is to complete a total of five level 23 Mythic Keystone dungeons over those two weeks.” Duplicate runs don’t count, you can’t swap out characters, and you’ve got to beat the timer. Then you’ll register your team and await your invitation for stage 2. It’s an invitational, after all.
Incidentally, there’s a long list of eligibility requirements, including location-based ones. Gamers from Arizona, Connecticut, Maryland, North Dakota, Vermont, and Quebec can sit this one out.
So hey, there you go: If you always wanted to try e-sports but didn’t want to actually PvP, you can PvE your heart out in the best MMORPG race ever.
