World of Warcraft kicks off its Mythic Dungeon Invitational

Not all e-sports tournaments have to do with players beating on each other’s faces, although to be fair, that seems like a vast majority of them. However, Blizzard is introducing a different type of tournament today in World of Warcraft with its Mythic Dungeon Invitational that draws more from the PvE side of the game.

During the invitational, 32 teams from across the world will be competing over the course of three weekends to work their way up in the rankings. How will they do this? By racing through set mythic-level dungeons in World of Warcraft, of course!

It sounds as though teams will be competing against each other to see which can clear a dungeon the best and fastest: “These teams will need to balance speed, skill, and strategy to claim their victory over their opponents. Keystone levels and affixes will be determined by Blizzard and all competition will take place on special tournament realms in which all players compete on an even playing field.”

You can watch these matches on the official World of Warcraft Twitch channel starting tonight at midnight EDT (for the matches in China).

China: Friday, September 15 at 9:00 p.m. PDT

Not gonna lie, I’m actually interested to see how this turns out. I’m pretty cool on the idea but hey, maybe there’s a huge untapped audience for competitive, small scale PvE?

I actually watched some streamers practicing/qualifying for this and enjoyed it way more than watching the PvP competitions.
