The Mythic Dungeon International (abbreviated as MDI) is a global program that pits the best Mythic dungeon teams from across the world in a race to the finish line. This event is streamed on the World of Warcraft Twitch channel.
On January 17, 2019, MDI was rebranded from Invitational to International.
World of Warcraft esports is expanding into the fast-paced, highly competitive world of Mythic Keystone dungeons with the Mythic Dungeon Invitational. We’re looking for the best of the best from around the world to battle it out for a share of $100,000.
- Proving Grounds
Proving Grounds are a qualification period open to any player with a good standing Blizzard Battle.net account. In order to qualify for the next stage, a group of 5 players would need to team up and complete five level 14 Mythic Keystone Dungeons within a time frame. If successful, each player on the team will have their account flagged to have access to the Tournament Realm and continue onward to the Time Trials.
- Time Trials
Each team will have to make five attempts at each dungeon in a three-dungeon pool. Players are informed on what dungeons and affixes 48 hours prior to the Time Trials beginning. The dungeons and affixes alternate each week.
- Global Finals
The Group Stage started on April 13 and ended on May 6, 2018.

MDI All-Stars was a special live exhibition tournament that summoned some of the best dungeon-running teams in the world for BlizzCon 2018. Blizzard brought the worlds of the MDI and the WoW Arena World Championship together in Anaheim for the first time ever.
The top four teams from the MDI Global Finals were invited to the MDI All-Stars, where they tackled the newest Battle for Azeroth dungeons live on stage in front of thousands of attendees and esports fans that watched from online. This was the first MDI tournament to feature Battle for Azeroth.
