Our WoW Team

Planning and format of the World of Warcraft MDI 2024

Last year, our World of Warcraft team has finished second from MDIafter a hard-fought battle with Echo. This year, our players are out for revenge! The biggest PVE tournament of Blizzard's MMO returns for a new editionAnd to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the licence, the studio is promising a spectacular show. All the matches will be commentated by ZeratoRKusa and Lapi, on the Twitch channels of the first two.

Important dates for MDI 2024

The MDI 2024 is divided into three stages :

  • Time Trials - from 31 January to 5 February,
  • The Group Phase - from 16 to 18 February (for Group A) and from 23 to 25 February (for Group B),
  • The Global Finals - from 8 to 10 March,

The preliminary phase of MDI 2024

As usual, the MDI begins with an open qualification phase. It takes place between the end of January and the beginning of February, over a six-day period. Expertise and flexibility are essential for this stage, as only the top 16 teams advance to the next phasecompared with 24 last year.

Thereafter, the sixteen qualifiers are divided into two groups (A and B). There, they compete against each other in a double-elimination format. This phase takes place between mid and late February. The top 4 in each group qualify for the Global Finalsthe final stage of the MDI.

The MDI 2024 Global Finals

At the Global Finals, only only 8 teams left. This stage is therefore the most important and the most impressive of the MDI. Once again, the teams are placed in a double-elimination tree and the first matches are played in Bo3. The Grand Final is a Bo5. Beyond the glory, players give everything they've got to finish top and pocket the 80 000$ reward (the overall cashprize being 200,000$).

The Global Finals take place Friday 8, Saturday 9 and Sunday 10 March 2024.
