United Kingdom – January 8th, 2020 – Method and the Race to World First return in the climactic ending to Battle for Azeroth's raids. Coming to you live once again from Krefeld, Germany, at the TaKeTV studios, the RWF: Ny'alotha event will feature one of the most exciting races so far. Ny'alotha, the Waking City is the final raid and progress race of World of Warcraft's latest expansion and will see the top guilds competing at a new level, as they fight to add the last endboss, the legendary old god N'zoth, to their trophy list.
The race and event start on January 28th at 3 PM CET/6AM PDT on the US server reset day, with the EU starting the days after, on the 29th. You'll be able to watch the extensive 24-hours a day, seven-days-a-week coverage featuring expert analysis, commentary, casting and original content on the Method twitch channel and keep up to date on Method's website if you miss any of the live action as well. The Race to World First events have cemented themselves as some of the most popular WoW streaming content, ranking in the Twitch 2019 top six esports events in leading viewer minutes three times, featuring Race to World First: The Eternal Palace, Race to World First: Battle of Dazar’alor, and Race to World First: Uldir.
The Ny'alotha event itself will once again feature perspectives and guilds from around the world, including Alpha, Ji Tian Hong, Aversion, Club Camel, Fused, Vodka, Ethical and Imperative, as well as plenty of PoVs from Method raiders, who will be playing live from the TaKeTV Studios. Method will also be unveiling the guild's players that will be at the event soon over on the official twitter, so stay tuned there as well.
Method will also host an inaugural viewing party with guest appearances at Meltdown Cologne on January 31; and an afterparty at TaKeTV Studios, as well as a charity drive for Save the Children (having raised $60,000 in the last Race to World First alone), with more details to be announced.
