UK-based esports organisation and competitive World of Warcraft raid team, Method, have announced details of their next Race to World First (RWF) event.
The final raid in the Battle for Azeroth game expansion for World of Warcraft is Ny’alotha, the Waking City. It will see various teams compete with one another once again to be the first to down the new bosses – including old god N’zoth – and clear the raid.
Method will be playing and streaming their progress live from the TakeTV studios in Krefeld, Germany, again, from the Method Twitch channel.
The latest race to world first event will get underway from January 28th on US server reset day, with the EU starting on January 29th.
Method played from the TakeTV studios last year when they were the first to defeat mythic Queen Azshara in the Eternal Palace raid. They have made a name for themselves for being the first to complete the latest raids in World of Warcraft.
However, in the WoW Classic level 60 and Ragnaros race to world first, they lost out to a player called Jokerd and a guild called Apes, respectively. Method later signed Jokerd but kicked him out two weeks later for ninja looting.
The Ny’alotha event will feature other guilds racing to claim the world first including Alpha, Ji Tian Hong, Aversion, Club Camel, Fused, Vodka, Ethical and Imperative, as outlined in this post on the Method website.
There will be a viewing party at Meltdown Cologne on January 31st and an after party at the TakeTV Studios. Method said there will be another charity push for Save the Children, following the $60,000 they raised in the last RWF event.
