News Header

The Regional Championship Cups are all done with and the big events are almost upon us, as gamescom and the European Championship Finals are up this week, from Wednesday to Saturday, where Method: Triforce will be fighting for a share of the $100,000 USD prize pool and one of the four entry tickets to the BlizzCon Arena Grand Finals! And to help them on that road we have Maros "Blizo" Molcan officially joining the team full-time, after having already played with the team for quite a while.

Two 2017 EU Cup wins, 3rd/4th place in Method EU Major, Silver in the 3rd 2016 Arena Qualifier Cup.

I'm excited to finally announce that I'm officially a part of Method!

Meanwhile, on the other side of the pond, the final NA qualifier cup proved to be quite the "edge of your seat" tournament for our boys. Method Reborn was knocked out of cup #5 sooner than we would have liked, but that did not stop Method Synergy and Method Awakened from going head to head for not only one set of matches, but two! After the final two rounds, Method Synergy took the win over Awakened and Cup #5 was theirs. If you missed it and would like to watch the VOD. The end result of the 5th, and in fact all cups so far, is that all three Method NA teams will be heading for the Finals, starting on September 9th!

The World of Warcraft Regional Championships lead to nerd screams heard around the world, and more importantly a trip to play live in the packed arena for the 2017 Arena World Championship at BlizzCon in November. As we countdown to the best teams battling it out in the Regional Championships, let’s get caught up on the very latest, as well as a recap of the last few months.

The Road to BlizzCon has changed a bit this year in terms of how the teams qualified. This year Blizzard introduced the points system to qualify these teams for the Regional Championships. The placement points have been accumulated throughout the year during the WoW Arena Cup Qualifiers and Blizzard approved community events, such as the Method EU and NA Majors.

Here is a quick overview of how points are awarded at these events:

Point Reward per Event
Cup Events Approved Community Events
1st place 160pts 1st place 40pts
2nd place 80pts 2nd place 20pts
3rd place 36pts 3rd place 12pts
4th place 20pts 4th place 8pts
5th place 12pts 5th place N/A

The top 12 teams from the Regional Championships will head to the Arena World Championship at BlizzCon. The 12 teams are comprised of the following region based teams:

North American: 4 teams

Europe: 4 teams

China: 2 teams

Latin America: 1 team

Asia Pacific: 1 team

In case you missed some of the previous World of Warcraft Arena Cup Qualifiers, here is a summary of how Method teams have placed so far:
