WoW MDI Group A results

From Feb. 17 through Feb. 19, WoW MDI Group A teams raced against time and each other in various dungeons. While Echo faced Lucky Seven on the first day, Sloth went up against Apes Together Strong. Both Echo and Sloth came out victorious by going 2-0 in the best-of-three matches.

These two teams continued their win streak on the second day, with Echo going 2-0 and Sloth getting a 2-1 score. This advanced them both to the semifinal.

Although Echo pushed Sloth into the lower elimination bracket, the latter team didn't give up. Sloth players fought their way back to the top and faced Echo in the best-of-five final. Echo won the gold by going 3-1, and since the top two WoW MDI 2023 Dragonflight Group A teams had a place in the Global Finals, both Echo and Sloth received well-earned spots.
