Scott McMillan, Method Co-owner, Co-founder:
We couldn't start 2019 in a better way here at Method, I am absolutely thrilled to welcome CORSAIR on board as a partner. CORSAIR will be supporting our players, streamers, and Method events going into 2019. On a personal note, I love what CORSAIR has been doing at gaming events the past year, the people are great, the acquiring of Elgato really showed how in touch they are with the gaming community and the future of professional streaming. I don't think there is a peripheral company that could be a better fit for Method, and I am very happy with this partnership. Here's to a great 2019!
Frank Fields, CORSAIR Program Manager, Esports and Sponsorships:
Method has been a staple of the World of Warcraft community for over a decade and we're honored to work along side them. We're excited to bring new content plans to fruition during our partnership and we can't wait to show the gaming community what's next.
