Our global staff works tirelessly on behalf of the MMO/RPG communities to build recognition, reach new audiences, and celebrate the impressive feats achieved to push the boundaries of our industry forward.
Scott founded Method, originally a World of Warcraft (WoW) guild, in 2005 and led Method’s guild to a dozen ‘World First’ boss kills, the highest achievement in WoW. His vision for esports enabled Method to be the first MMO/RPG esports organisation to provide a sustainable career path for WoW players looking to turn their passion into their profession.
Under Scott’s stewardship, Method transformed from a guild into a global esports organisation that serves the community. Method creates transformational opportunities for talent, world-class entertainment experiences for fans, and provides educational resources to all who seek to maximise their skills.
