And here it finally is, the video showing how Method managed to get the World First, a kill that took 654 wipes and over 7 and a half days for anyone else to repeat! It gets really crazy at the end there, so pay close attention!
And here are some comments from the video editor himself, PlebCentral:
It has begun. The first round of the Mythic Dungeon Invitational is here and everyone can compete! Blizzard has just posted the extended rules and a FAQ for the Proving Grounds, where any team can submit their best 5 Mythic+ runs and have a chance at moving to the next stage in their region. This stage lasts two weeks, from July 25 to August 8 so get your team and get going!
Secure your spot* in the Mythic Dungeon Invitational by making a run at Mythic Keystone dungeons from July 25-August 8 during the Proving Grounds! The top scoring contenders will be invited to join as one of 32 outstanding teams from around the world, competing for a share of the $100,000 prize pool.
Teams will need to master multiple dungeons during this two week period to be considered. We’ll be judging performance across the 5 dungeons in which the team achieves the highest Keystone Level during this time.
At the end of the two weeks, teams will need to submit their top score using this form. Note that any entries received prior to the end of the Proving Grounds period (August 8) will not be considered. All entries must be received by August 11 by 3:00 p.m. PDT. Only dungeons completed during the Proving Ground period will be considered.
Read the original announcement here and keep an eye on the World of Warcraft esports site.
Proving Grounds FAQ
Q. Do any completed Mythic Keystone Dungeons count, or do I need to finish the dungeon within the timer for it to be valid?
A. Only dungeons completed within the allotted time will be counted (e.g., Maw of Souls needs to be completed in less than 24 minutes, Black Rook Hold needs to be completed within 39 minutes, etc). If you didn’t complete the dungeon in-time but submit it as one of your runs, you risk invalidating your submission.
Q. Can I submit two different runs for the same dungeon?
A. You’ll need to submit times for 5 different dungeons, with no repeats. For example, you will not be able to submit a 22 Halls of Valor run and a 21 Halls of Valor run.
Q. How do I know what my best dungeon clears were at the end of the Proving Grounds?
A. It’s up to you to keep track of your eligible dungeons during the two-week Proving Grounds period, either by taking screenshots, referencing the in-game Mythic Dungeon UI, or checking the Mythic Keystone Leaderboards for your realm.
Q. Do we have to use the same characters throughout the Proving Grounds? Or can I use alts, or invite some other guild members to push for higher keystone clears?
A. All 5 dungeon times you submit need to be with the same 5 characters; bringing in alternate characters or other players will invalidate your entry. (Please note however, that during the Regional and Global stages of the Mythic Dungeon Invitational your 5-player team will be able to use multiple
characters and you won’t be limited to a single class each).
Q. Do I just use my normal characters for the Proving Grounds? What about the later stages of the tournament?
A. You’ll be using your normal retail characters for this portion of the tournament. If you’re selected as one of the 32 teams to compete in the Mythic Dungeon Invitational bracket, you’ll be given access to a specially configured tournament realm for your region that will have everything you need to compete (consumables, gear, etc). This will allow us to set keystone affix combinations different from the current live combination for that week, and allow us to normalize gear and artifact level among all competitors.
Q. If I’m invited to compete in the later stages, do I need to travel somewhere?
A. All stages of the Mythic Dungeon Invitational will be played online, so no travel is required. The tournament realms are physically located in each region to minimize any concerns over latency during the Regional and Global stages of the tournament.

Update: the video will become available as a VoD immediately and won't actually be streamed live, so just check the videos tab on Method's twitch channel!
Well, it seems announcements for killvideos are a thing nowadays! After Exorsus' World 2nd, Method have let slip the date and time of the very first airing of their World First Mythic Kil'jaeden kill video. Now, we've all been able to see the fight up until around 40% courtesy of the Alpha stream, but that final 40ish percent seems brutal and will definitely be worth a watch (or several).
In any case, you can check it out it starting from 8PM CET over on Method's twitch channel. Meanwhile you can read the interview they recently did covering the whole of ToS progression.
I have compiled the Warcraft story into 240 events nested into 29 statements nested into 4 summaries, all of which can be toggled individually.
This is a work in progress still, and certain details are outdated due to the WoW: Chronicle retcon, but it still gives a very solid ground-up understanding of the Warcraft story and most of its fundamental aspects.
Update: Added nerdscreams video and killshot.
And the second kill is finally here! Exorsus have defeated Kil'jaeden 7 days, 5 and a half hours after Method's World First kill and fended off the Chinese guilds that were pressuring their silver medal spot. After 962 wipes this will come as a huge relief for the Russian guild, as they've also had wipes as low as 0.2% in the last couple of days and been pretty frustrated with some of the issues on the fight. Guild GM Alveona even promised a big post about the whole issue after the race is done, so we have that to look forward to!
Now it's down to Alpha and Style War to fight over the final top 3 spot, if one of the other 25 guilds on Kil'jaeden don't pull an upset and get there first! We also have Method's kill video to look forward to, which should arrive either after the 3rd kill or when one of the streaming guilds gets close to a kill. And there's Method's big interview coming today where we'll find out more specifics of the fights!
