Blizzard eSports are taking another stab at trying to turn World of Warcraft into an eSport, by way of Mythic Keystone dungeons. Teams wanting to compete will have to get top scores on Mythic Keystone dungeons between July 25 to August 8 and report them to Blizzard.
Top scoring contenders will be invited to join as one of 32 outstanding teams from around the world, competing for a share of the $100,000 prize pool—and ultimately claiming bragging rights of the #1 spot. Once chosen, 8 teams from the Americas, 8 from Europe, 8 from China, and 8 from Asia-Pacific will be tapped to face the challenge, proving they have what it takes to go all the way to the finals.
Traditionally, MMORPG’s have made poor eSports and I personally feel that the throwing of a large prize pool at the . “problem” will not overcome matters of build complexity and visual confusion that makes Warcraft hard to follow even for a seasoned eSport fan.
