It's time for a whole new Gfinity Elite season, and for Method's teams to head in and face the competition to try and come out on top! We have some new talent this year with new subs and players, as well as some veterans we all know and love. Season 4 is also changing up some things, with the new edition of FIFA coming in, as well as the format being changed to 2v2 matches, so that's definitely going to be one to watch.
It all starts on October 26th and will take place over the usual seven weeks at the home of UK esports, the Gfinity Esports Arena in London and here's the schedule:
- FIFA 19, 6:00pm to 10:00pm GMT every Friday night (starting 26th October)
- Rocket League on Saturday (27th October) from 10:00am to 2:00pm GMT
- Street Fighter V on Saturday evening between 6:00pm to 10:00pm GMT
And so, without further ado, here's Method's full roster for all three games:
The Rocket League team, lead by team captain Rix Ronday, has already accomplished much, including a third place finish in both the Elite series season 3 and RLCS season 6, so with the help of new addition Kassio and subs Mye_bipod_4shor, Chupo and Zee9 the full team is set to reach even higher in this year's series.

The Street Fighter 5 team is led by our most senior, most experienced and, some/most would also say most charismatic player in Packz, with Broski and Imstilldadaddy having his back for quite a while now and forming the core of the team. They are joined by Quiggy, who's already been with Method in the Gfinity Elite series, and newcomer Bongchan, as they both prepare to help out on the road to the top.

Our now veteran players Riptorek and Venny are joined by three new additions this season coming up from the Challenger series, with Delee, Magee and JakeCruyff adding that new blood teams always need. With a new edition of the game on the table, as well as the new 2v2 format introduced in this season of the Elite series, FIFA 19 might change the way the competition plays, so it's going to be an extra exciting season this time around.
