United Kingdom - May 14, 2019 - Method is announcing a new addition to our staff, as our fast-growing World of Warcraft esports teams get a new manager. Robby Rautenberg is a veteran of the game, having played since Vanilla, and he'll be using his experience of the game as well his management skills (having steered Aztech’s ANZ HGC team to a top 3 finish in the region), to handle all WoW Esports teams.
He's played his Warrior for over 15 years now, just like to our co-founder and guild master Scott "Sco" McMillan, so there must be something special about Warriors and leading/managing a team.
Robby "Gokiburi" Rautenberg
I'm incredibly excited to be joining forces with Method. With their world-renowned players, and my drive for success, I plan to help bring Method to new heights. 2019 is going to be an amazing year, and I can't wait to share it all with you.
Shanna Sarr, Method General Manager
It's not much of a secret that WoW esports is a huge passion for me and has been at the center of my work with Method for almost four years. I am thrilled to be given the chance to transition the every day management of our WoW esports professionals to Robby. With his experience in the HGC and passion for Blizzard esports, I know that he will bring the commitment to progress and excellence that we are looking for in our team managers. Our WoW esports teams are in good hands!
From a World of Warcraft guild to a global esports organization. Founded in 2005 by Scott ‘Sco’ McMillan and based in the UK, Method is today consisting of 11 teams featuring over 70 world class players across 6 different games: World of Warcraft, Fortnite, Rocket League, Path of Exile, Mortal Kombat 11 and PUBG Mobile.
More than an esports team, content creation is one of Method’s core foundations. Besides housing one of the largest live stream teams in esports, Method is the host of original event series such as the Method Majors and the Race to World First.
