The Great Push - New Mythic+ Tournament
Originally Posted by Blizzard (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)
We’re thrilled to announce details on our first competitive dungeon one-off tournament of the year. Welcome to The Great Push, coming May 28-30!

For over fourteen years, we’ve sought to explore new ways to push the limits of competitive World of Warcraft. With The Great Push, our first one-off tournament of the year, we are bringing a new style of competitive dungeon running distinct from the foundations set by the Mythic Dungeon International (MDI). Instead of teams fighting to beat their opponent’s time, The Great Push is focused on teams pushing keys as high as they can, striving to out survive their competitors and be crowned the champion!

How The Great Push Works

  • The Great Push stands separate from the MDI. Any team of five players can register for their shot at the $20,000 (USD) prize pool!
  • Teams will compete in the initial qualifier phase, the Proving Grounds, on May 22-23, where teams will be given two dungeon keystone combinations to push to the highest difficulty they can reach on the tournament realm.
  • The top six teams from the qualifier will be invited to the main tournament, where they will compete across the different Shadowlands Dungeons to push their keystones as high as possible.
  • The winning team will be the one who has the highest overall score for dungeons pushed and will be crowned the champion.
  • There are no pre-requisites required to play in the tournament, teams can sign up for The Great Push through May 17!

The tournament will be broadcast live on YouTube and Twitch, and players will also be able to stream their perspectives during the tournament, including their time in the Proving Grounds. You can choose to follow your favorite team and players, while keeping up with the casters for the overall standings throughout the weekend.


Looking Forward

Meanwhile, be sure to tune in to the MDI Global Finals where teams will battle for $300,000 USD on April 23-25, only on YouTube. With Season 1 featuring some of the hardest-fought dungeon runs imaginable, including the closest dungeon finish in MDI history, 2021 is gearing up to be the Mythic Dungeon International’s best year ever. Subscribe to the Warcraft YouTube and don’t forget to follow the WoW Esports Twitter, for the chilliest chills and dankest memes in all of Azeroth. We’ll see you in the Dungeon Finder!

    This^
    average players will do exactly this^ because they saw "Method black/orange/rainbow" do it in a +23 of the Great push...showcasing the meta/best comps from the pro players.

    get ready for raids/mythic plus to get slightly more toxic and picky thanks to the great push.

    Nice, except that falls exactly on Bursting Volcanic week for live servers. As it has already shown, the amount of time and effort spent to prepare for such a competition are not worth the rewards.

    I dunno, think the mythic+ scene is already toxic enough which is why i haven't touched it since it was introduced in Legion.

    I'll take anything over the current mdi. It's the most boring thing to watch

    I wonder if this will follow the typical Blizzard rules.

    Team enters > wins every match > splits the 20,000 5 ways > Never allowed to enter again.

    Slightly more? Oh no. It isn't that big of a deal because the people that will do what you say are already being toxic. People just need to relax and stop finding every little detail to complain about when ever Blizzard does something.

    Those things exist with out the competitions though. So you are essentially whining that others get to have fun.

    When was the last time you got offered 8k (1.6k per person for first place) to play a video game? The only joke are those that constantly complain about everything while still playing the game or going to fansites/articles about the game.

    Dont worry... all Method: Rainbow has to do is upload their "world first mythic +24" video from youtube... into the Great push .. and you'll be plenty entertained. Hell, if you want go ahead and watch it on youtube now so you can save some time.

    Metas exist anyway.

    Classic has a meta too and it has nothing like this.

    Metas exist because of the crap that content creators and the writers of guides on wowhead and icy-veins put out. They tell you that you have to spec one way, gear one way, and if you do anything else you're bad. And the sheep listen to that garbage, and then it trickles down.
