Perplexed look to dominate Group B

When it comes to World of Warcraft, the only thing as exciting as racing for the world premiere 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 advance to the MDI Global Finals, where they will compete for the $300,000 prize pool.

This weekend, Perplexed will attempt to channel the same BDE as Echo and dominate Group B.

What’s in store for the first group stage so far?

Although we are not that far into the group stage, as only Group A has been played, many expectations have already been met. We of course imply that the guild that managed to win Race to World First, Echo, also dominates the MDI, as they crushed all their opponents with a score of 2:0.

Even though Echo demolished its competitors, Group A had some interesting times. For example, there have been three instances where a team lost two games against the same opponent. The prime example of this is Incarnation, who lost their first match to Evolved, only to lose to them again in the lower bracket semi-finals. The second team with a similar storyline is Evolved, who suffered their first loss to Baldy in the upper bracket quarterfinals and then again in the lower bracket finals.

Anyway, for a quick recap, here’s how Group A’s slice went down:

While Incarnation and Evolved had the misfortune of losing to the same team twice, they at least had the opportunity to beat the first opponents they lost to. However, the same cannot be said for Baldy, as they lost to Echo in the top bracket semi-finals, as well as in the top bracket finals. But, even with this double loss, Baldy will exit the group stage, which matters most.

What strategies did Echo use to win?

Well, to be honest, they haven’t used any secret strategies yet, as they’re probably saving them for later stages of the tournament. We could see them performing a standard composition with a bloody death knight as the tank and a holy priest as the healer. There were a few 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 is a nice summary presented by Nagura:

What can you expect from Group B?

I fully expect Perplexed to top Group B, but we could have a little more even matches than we’ve seen so far. If you’re also wondering when can you tune in to watch Group B in action, here’s the schedule:

  • Day 1 – Friday April 29e, 7:00 PM EST
  • Day 2 – Saturday April 30e, 7:00 PM EST
  • Day 3 – Sunday May 1St, 7:00 PM EST

WoW betting is also available on GG.BET for this event. The odds are heavily skewed in favor of the favorites, but if you know your game and bet against the tide, there’s plenty of money to be had.
