Limit and Pieces to stream WoW Eternal Palace world-first attempts from Red Bull Gaming Sphere

Two top World of Warcraft raid guilds will take up residency at the Red Bull Gaming Sphere in London to stream their latest world-first attempts.

North American raid guild Limit and European guild Pieces will broadcast live for 24 hours a day on twitch.tv/redbull. They will race against the clock from Tuesday July 16th to be the first guild to take down Queen Azshara on Mythic difficulty in the new Eternal Palace raid zone.
Limit will be streaming during NA raiding hours, kicking off from 4pm BST on July 16th, while Pieces will begin their campaign from 8am the following day, playing during EU raiding times.
 

“I don’t think there’s any other sport where you put this much effort in prior to the real competition.”
LumL, guild leader, Pieces

 
Red Bull will also be hosting broadcast talent for the entirety of the residency including UK casters Jack ‘Jacky’ Peters and Alex ‘Snodz’ Byfield and YouTuber Daniel ‘MrGM’ Carter. The full list is as follows:

  • Daniel ‘AutomaticJak’ Anzenberger
  • Rich Campbell
  • Michael ‘Sonii’ Sherman
  • Jack ‘Jacky’ Peters
  • Matthew ‘Staysafe’ Morse
  • Caroline ‘Nagura’ Forer
  • Alex ‘Snodz’ Byfield
  • Calum ‘Gelubaba’ Fraser
  • Ashwin ‘Jet’ Panikkar
  • James ‘Kargoz’ Heldridge
  • Daniel ‘MrGM’ Carter

The news comes after top raiding guild and UK organisation, Method, announced they had split from Red Bull following their previous successful world-first raid streams (G’huun and Jaina) at the Gaming Sphere in London. They will now do their own stream in conjunction with TakeTV in Germany.
Method founder and co-owner Scott McMillan (aka Sco) said: “Red Bull saw the magnitude of race to world-first and decided that they wanted to own and operate the event themselves. We rejected that for many reasons.”
Limit guild leader Maximum said: “We’ve stepped up our game even more from before. Going for world first is the most creatively challenging thing that any one of us ever has to do. Easily. You’re coming up with new strategies on the fly, but it’s why we do it – everyone has a lot of fun.”
Pieces, who won the recent WoW mythic world-first race back in May, were first to down mythic Uu’nat in the Crucible of Storms mini-raid. Guild leader LumL added: “After several tiers where we were placing among the top in the world without putting everything we had, a lot of us wanted to see how we’d do if we did.
