UK esports organisation Method have partnered with Adamas Esports Training & Performance Ltd to ensure their World of Warcraft (WoW) guild are ‘operating at peak performance’.
Adamas has become the performance partner of Method’s raid guild ahead of the next WoW raid tier – Chains of Domination.
The goal is to help Method seek a top three finish in the next Race to World First event and close the gap with the likes of Complexity Limit, who won the most recent Race to World First late last year.
Method ended up finishing seventh in the first Shadowlands raid tier, however it was their first Race to World First after Method had started to rebuild their organisation.
As part of the new partnership, Adamas will provide consulting services to members of Method’s World of Warcraft Guild, focusing on sports psychology, mental performance and ‘lifestyle optimisation’. Adamas will also be providing one-on-one leadership development training to Method’s guild officers to help ‘build a culture of excellence’.
“We are thrilled to partner with Adamas Esports to enhance the guild’s performance and look after the wellbeing of our World of Warcraft raiding team,” said Joel Holmes-Darby, general manager at Method (who joined the org earlier this year).
“Wellbeing is one of Method’s core values and why it’s so important that our guild maintains a healthy approach to hardcore raiding while striving for peak performance. With coaching from Adamas, our raiders will learn how to maximise their own performance levels and maintain their personal wellbeing, creating a supportive team environment where we can all achieve our progress raiding targets.”
Caleb Cousens of Adamas Esports added: “The Adamas team is excited to work alongside the Method leadership team and help the World of Warcraft Guild to compete at the top of their sport.
“World of Warcraft is such an intense and unique competition, and we know we can help optimise their training, teamwork and lifestyle to be ready for the long hours.”
