Season two of Blizzard’s Mythic Dungeon Invitational is going on now. World of Warcraft continues to be a favored game among online computer players. It has become highly popular enough that Blizzard, the company behind the game, has already had one eSports competition. They just announced a second Invitational is coming soon.
The first ever Mythic Dungeon Invitational started on February 27, 2018, where five teams began playing for a spot in the tournament. The actual competition will occur later in 2018.
Blizzard is trying to focus on PvE eSports for their top game World of Warcraft. Instead of having players go for gold in a player versus player combat style, the teams are going to battle against a clock in an attempt to take out the dungeon’s most difficult enemies.
Mythic Dungeon Invitational is much different from Blizzard’s other WOW eSport opportunities. They offer the Arena World Championship, which is a player versus player tournament. There, AWC has players who go against each other in head to head combat to see who has the best team. In 2018, the AW championship is going to expand to a yearlong season.
Blizzard says they will have more tournaments than ever before, giving World of Warcraft players the best chance to compete against others. However, Mythic Dungeon Invitational is a new attempt at the Player versus E side of the game. The PvE has been the game’s most significant grew for players particularly in the competitive gaming community.
Mythic Plus Dungeons
Dungeons in WOW are five player activities. There are a group of characters including a tank, healer, and three damage style characters that come together to fight. It is scripted and has a consistent map. The dungeon is filled with several bosses and enemies usually called “trash.”
Players can clear all the bosses and get out of the dungeon. The mythic part of the title comes from the difficulty level of the dungeon. There are three levels called Normal, Heroic, and Mythic. Mythic is by far the most difficult, whereas the first two levels help match-make the group where random players can jump in to help out the team. Mythic requires players to find their groups and start trying to win against the bosses.
Dungeons is not a new element to World of Warcraft. It has been a part of the game since it was first launched. Each week players are going to earn Mythic Keystone when they complete the first Mythic dungeon.
