Anaheim, California - 30 October 2019 - Method is excited to announce a new addition, the notorious gnome and World First level 60 in World of Warcraft Classic, Jokerd! This partnership is a natural fit, as Method always strives to support the best players, and Daniel Vella "Jokerd" Gobey has certainly proven himself to be that time and time again. He has not only claimed the throne of fastest to level 60 in WoW Classic, but was also the no.1 ranked Marksmanship Hunter on Warcraft Logs during the Legion expansion. In addition, to this day, he holds the record of fastest level 60 on any fresh private WoW Vanilla server launch.
I'm very excited to be joining Method, an organization that I have been watching grow for 8 years. I'm looking forward to being part of an awesome community with talented and awesome players.

Jokerd made history on August 30th, 2019, when he was the first to reach level 60 in WoW Classic. It was one of those moments that define the importance of Twitch and live-streaming in general. Over 300,000 people watched a guy playing WoW Classic from his attic. The countless practice runs finally paid off and Jokerd performed when it mattered. So partnering with him was a no-brainer for us, we share the same passion and together we will chase the next World First.
Welcome to Method!
