World Of Warcraft's The Great Push from buzai232's blog

Blizzard recently announced World of Warcraft's The Great Push tournament, what it described as its "first one-off tournament" of 2021. The event is separate from the Mythic Dungeon International's regular league play and could potentially draw attention from people who don't normally follow WoW esports, on account of its unique ruleset.To get more news about buy wow gold, you can visit lootwowgold official website.

WoW's Mythic Dungeon International is currently barreling towards its Global Finals, which are scheduled for April 23-25. League teams typically compete to complete dungeon runs in the fastest time and claim a seasonal grand prize, this year totaling $300,000. Those interested in watching will be able to tune in through the official Warcraft YouTube channel.
The Great Push tournament is different. According to Blizzard, instead of time, the metric for the competition will be pushing keys as high as possible, with teams looking to out-survive their rivals. The winning team will be the one with the highest overall score for its dungeon runs.

Any group of five people can register for The Great Push, up to a limit of 2,048 teams, so long as they own the World of Warcraft: Shadowlands expansion necessary to access the dungeons. Signs-ups are currently underway until May 17. Teams will have to compete in a Proving Grounds qualifying phase, scheduled for May 22-23. This will whittle down the field, with teams given two dungeon keystone combinations they're expected to push to the highest difficulty they can achieve.

In the end, only six teams will be allowed into the main tournament spanning May 28-30, where they'll compete for a $20,000 prize pool. Spectators will be able to watch both the Proving Grounds and the actual tournament via Twitch or YouTube, with the option to switch team perspectives at will. Blizzard is using best-of-three rules in a double-elimination setup.

It's not clear yet if the tournament will include content from Shadowlands' Chains of Damnation update. The update will offer a new raid, Sanctum of Domination, as well as a new mega-dungeon, Tazavesh. Blizzard has only said the patch will arrive later this year, though, at the beginning of Shadowlands Season 2. Even if that season does start before The Great Push's Proving Grounds, teams might not have enough free days to prepare. Sticking to the World of Warcraft expansion's "standard" dungeons might enable a more even playing field, especially with a possible crush of competitors flooding Blizzard servers from around the world.
