Everything fans need to know about World of Warcraft’s exciting second foray into The Great Push can be found here.
Last weekend, WoW held a Proving Grounds event that featured over 7,500 teams with a staggering number of players that towered over the number 37,000, but that number has been whittled down to only six teams for the upcoming Great Push season 2 for the World of Warcraft Esports scene.
The Great Push season 2 starts today, allowing players to test their mettle against one another for the right to glory in World of Warcraft. Over the course of three days, teams will need to utilize teamwork to push Shadowland Keystones and show idolatry to the fan-favourite expansion of the world that started the entire event of Mythic Dungeon international, Legion. With a prize pool of $20,000, nothing is off-limits, except for the rules that need to be followed, of course.
The format of play is as follows:
- Teams will need to complete six dungeons in order to achieve results, while obtaining the highest Keystones overall.
- The event will take place throughout the weekend, and the dungeon order can be chosen at each team’s discretion.
- Only 4 of the available 6 dungeons will be playable on the first day.
- One more dungeon will be revealed on day two, with the final dungeon showing its face on day three.
- A time limit of 5 hours each day will be given to the contestant teams, to showcase their mettle.
- The final dungeon run needs to have at least started before time runs out.
- At the end of the first two days, standings will be determined by the overall World of Warcraft Keystone count. The team with the lowest Keystone score will be eliminated here.
- Speed and skill are key in this competition for glory, and sweet cash prizes.
