Perplexed seek to dominate Group B – Mythic Dungeon International 2022
When it comes to World of Warcraft, the only thing that is as exciting as the Race to World First is the Mythic Dungeon Invitational. The tournament is currently in its Group Stage, where players will split the $30,000 prize pool based on their placements. The top two from each Group Stage will move onto the MDI Global Finals, where they will compete for the prize pool of $300,000.
This weekend, Perplexed will try to channel the same BDE as Echo and dominate Group B.
What did the first Group Stage have in store so far?
While we are not that deep into the Group Stage, as only Group A was played out, a lot of expectations were already met. We are, of course, implying that the guild which managed to win Race to World First, Echo, is also dominating the MDI, as they have crushed all of their opponents with a 2:0 score.
Even if Echo demolished its competitors, Group A had some interesting moments. For instance, there were three instances where a team lost two matches to the same opponent. The first instance of this is Incarnation, who lost their first match against Evolved, only to lose against them again in the lower bracket semi-finals. The second team with a similar scenario is Evolved, who suffered their first loss to Baldy in the quarter-finals of the upper bracket and then again in the lower bracket finals.
Regardless, for the sake of a quick recap, here’s how the bracket in Group A went down:
While Incarnation and Evolved had the misfortune to lose to the same team twice, they at least had the opportunity to beat the first opponents that they lost to. However, the same cannot be said for Baldy, as they lost to Echo in the upper bracket semi-finals, as well as the upper bracket finals. But, even with that double defeat, Baldy will move out of the group stage, which is what matters the most.
What strategies did Echo use in order to win?
Well, to be honest, they did not use any secret strategies just yet, as they are probably saving those for later stages of the tournament. We could see them run a standard comp with a Blood Death Knight as a tank and Holy Priest as the healer. There were some DPS rotations between a Subtlety Rogue and a Havoc Demon Hunter, but other than that, they ran a classic M+ comp with a Destruction Warlock and a Survival Hunter on their remaining DPS slots.
Here’s a nice recap presented by Naguura:
What can you expect from Group B?
I fully expect Perplexed to dominate Group B, but we might be in for a bit more equal matches then what we’ve witnessed thus far. If you are also wondering when can you tune in to watch Group B in action, this is the schedule:
- Day 1 – Friday, April 29th, 7:00 PM CEST
- Day 2 – Saturday, April 30th, 7:00 PM CEST
- Day 3 – Sunday, May 1st, 7:00 PM CEST
WoW betting is available at GG.BET for this event as well. The odds are heavily skewed towards the favorites, but if you know your game and bet against the grain there is good money to be made.
