The Race to World First is a World of Warcraft event that occurs whenever a new raid becomes available in the game. Leading guilds hold regular events that can last several days to become the first guild in the world to take down all raid bosses.

The events are particularly challenging as players encounter the raid bosses for the first time and tactics are often developed along the way.

One of the most notable WoW guilds in history, Echo Esports is the winner of the last two Race to World First events. The final event in the Raid Grab of the Firsts lasted 18 days and Echo won the challenge on the 277th attempt by defeating The Jailer, the final boss of the raid.

Echo Esports will host 13 players, eight casters and seven on-site staff at the Erupt Lounge in Bern, Switzerland for the duration of the event. The event is supported by Big Dumb Golden Guardians and will be streamed 24 hours a day on Echo’s channels.

These include Coinbase, Kingston Technology, Monster Energy and others.
