Echo takes home the victory, after 3-chesting all their keys and having an incredibly low depletion rate in all of the dungeons. Besides some minor technical issues, they seemed almost unbeatable and ultimately take the TGP championship. Not only did they lead the competition throughout the entire weekend, but they had better timers in almost every single dungeons, often being over a minute faster than the competition.
Monka claims second place, and has shown us once more that even titans can bleed. They certainly gave Echo more than just one scare this time around, just like during their first showing at the last MDI. Despite some very unfortunate depletes and missed 3-chests by just a handful of seconds, they came back strong on the last day, getting a +37 Junkyard done on their first attempt, as well as Iron Docks, Streets, and Upper Karazhan. This team will be a blast to watch going into Dragonflight.
Ambition had an incredible start into their first two days, being the only team besides Echo to really show how important it is to be consistent and faster than everybody else when playing up the keys. They faltered a bit on their initial pushes into the highest level of keys, but after some analysis and practice, they managed to get them done faster than even Echo and Monka. Their +37 Junkyard was an incredible comeback after failing it multiple times the previous day.
Besides our Top 3, we also have Zhixu Gaming, Team Performance, and Donuts and Disbear, who all showed incredible plays and runs as well. Team Performance still has everybody baffled about how they could possible do their +37 Junkyard this fast. A special shoutout certainly has to go to both ZhiXu Gaming and Team Performance, who were playing this event at 1AM-6AM local time the entire weekend, after having had their Qualifiers during regular playing hours last week.
Last but not least we have Donuts and Disbear, who managed to not only compete with the best of the best from the EMEA and Chinese region but almost eliminated some of them on Day 1 already. Hopefully this finally ends the debate about NA not deserving more than a single spot!
Thanks everybody for joining us for our coverage, we hope you had as much fun watching and cheering on the teams as we did. Let's all hope we won't have to wait too long for the next Mythic+ event, so we can all enjoy our beloved 5-man content together once more.
Thanks for reading and watching, have a lovely morning/day/night wherever you are, and see you in Dragonflight!
