Method are excited to announce in partnership with Razer the next expansion into another game title for a Race to World First event.
From the humble beginnings of World of Warcraft in September of 2018 when Method became the first ever esports org to host a RWF event during Uldir, to moving the RWF into Final Fantasy Online in February of 2020, the next journey for the Race to World First is….. Diablo® II: Resurrected
We will be celebrating the launch of Diablo II: Resurrected by teaming up with the popular Diablo II influencer “MrLlama” to host a launch party in the hours leading up to the release of the game on the 23rd of September at 5pm CET on twitch.tv/method.
Alongside this event and for the first time ever, we’re happy to allow you to have your own watch parties and co-stream our event on your own channel!
The launch party will entail a trip down memory lane, as the on air talent will take the audience through iconic moments in Diablo’s history, discussing important topics about how Diablo® II has come to be such an iconic game, participating in fun trivia with MrLlama and his team and much, much more. The launch party will conclude moments before the Race to World First begins, where the team will be fighting their way through the maze of dungeons, catacombs and caves that lead into the depths of hell.
The team will be aiming to achieve world first in the clearance of all 5 acts of Diablo II: Resurrected, starting on Normal mode, progressing through Nightmare into Hell mode. During this time, they will be aiming to be the world first team of players to clear all of the bosses, where afterwards the race will culminate once the team takes on the UBERS with the intention of also achieving the world first clear there.
