Method Classic Race Streaming Event

Recommended Posts

un4wXx6.jpg
 

Method are back at it as they'll be hosting another big streaming race event, this time for WoW Classic! In cooperation with WSOE (World Showdown of Esports) they'll be broadcasting the race to Onyxia and Ragnaros from the PokerGO Studio in Las Vegas.

The race this time around will be very different, as the leveling process is going to be the biggest part of progress, as the bosses are expected to fall over pretty quickly once guilds get 40 people into the raids. The event will be streamed 24/7, from level 1 to Onyxia and Ragnaros' deaths, and Method are expanding on their Eternal Palace move to cover other guilds in the race as well, with even more focus going to them this time around.

The event starts on August 26th and will end on September 2nd, so they seem pretty sure we'll be seeing a lot of level 60ies a mere 8 days after Classic's launch! You can watch the event either on Method's channel or WSOE's, with  many speed runners, Classic experts and other streamers racing to both 60 and the raid clears, as well as a lot of casting talent.

Check out the official announcement for all the details here.

Meh, I'm going to enjoy and not race... Hope they play on Faerlina like the rest of the streamers. 😛

Method is EU so they don’t get faerlina since that is US ( they will be hosting in the states but their accounts are EU)

What their race has to do with your leveling anyways? No1 asked you to race, even if it's on your realm it won't affect you anyways.

The idea of getting WF to 60 at an event is a bit silly. It's obvious that the people first to 60 will be account sharing so their characters can be leveled non-stop. 

Regardles, I think it's a fun way to celebrate the game, I am looking forward to it 🙂

You're right on that they are EU, but if you have been in Sco's stream he said: I created a character on NA servers not on EU 🙂

Meh let them race to 60 and be the first to fight/kill Onyxia and Ragnaros for world first in Classic.  It's not going to impede others from doing their own thing in the game.

The guild is on EU, but there are a lot of players in the Method Esports team who are NA.

If it helps the Hype Train to get even bigger and Classic more popular, it's great !

And just thinking about months it took in 2006 to simply see Onyxia for the first time, to imagine those guys rushing Ragnaros in about one week time, sounds crazy hahah 😄

No one asked you for your opinion. Sometimes people don't want to race.

Yeah, I agree but they pretty much know the mechanics of the fights. I am just wondering about the gear drops.

The race for professionally paid players with paid for rigs to show how rad and elite they are? I suspect not.

To be honest. It will be fun to see that method is not able to kill some of the bosses in their race. And that their hole race kind of idea about world of warcraft is about to fail and certainly not succeed.

 

I will laugh my *filtered* *filtered* off if they can actualy race vanilla....even if they can not. I am still curious about this. Because I think vanilla and so classic now called, is not mend for racing.

I wish them the best and good luck on it. I am not 100% sure they can do it. ROFLMAO

They are EU, Account doesn't matter, Since my ex her account is NA but if you create a new starter account on EU and buy the game you can join EU servers.

And since Sco did the same but than made a account for NA he is able to play on Faerlina-NA :)

      The Blackwing Lair speed runs continue unabated, and there's been a few more fastest runs, with Progress claiming the most recent/current record, taking only 20 minutes and 30 seconds to get Nefarian and co. down! Their run was actually a massive jump both from the current second place holders SALAD BAKERS (1 min 10 sec) and from the last one we covered, GUSY (1 min 23 sec), so this one will probably stay up there for a while. To make things even better, they conjured up a little celebration video as well, with some of their... ahem, "fans" "cheering" them on at the start. The video itself is pretty short, with highlights of the kills and a pretty damn good soundtrack as well, so let's take a look.
      This particular speed required over half the raid to be warriors (21, in fact), and also starred 6 priests, 5 rogues, 3 paladins, 2 hunters, a warlock, a mage and a druid. Here are the current standings in the seemingly most prestigious ongoing race in Classic at the moment, with the top 10 being separated by all of 3 minutes:

      We have another South Park Live to Win champion on our hands! DrFive had taken it upon himself to ignore every non-boar mob in Classic and get to max level as close to how the boys from South Park did as possible (but obviously couldn't quite stay in Elwynn Forest only). This isn't the first time someone has taken up and completed this very weird challenge, as it was conquered on retail back in 7.3.5, but that one took a trip to Outland to finish things up.

      This Classic attempt took almost 10 days played, 10,000 boars downed, 30 deaths and 22 million damage, but it was a success in the end, so let's take a look at the final moments, as well as some details on how he got there (including a whole lot of rested XP, help in pre-clearing Razorfen Downs etc):
       
      The entire journey will be uploaded to youtube, and there's already 36 videos up there to check out if you really like to see boars die.

      In case you don't feel like checking days' worth of footage, there's this theorycrafting video from before Classic's release on the very subject, and while DrFive didn't necessarily keep to this exact path, it's still a fun video to check out!

      Congrats to DrFive on this very weird challenge, and to everyone that keeps doing weird things in all of WoW, as we love seeing things like this make the game feel more alive. Also, make sure to re-watch the Make Love, not Warcraft South Park episode that started all of this.

      It seems the crowding has been (somewhat) alleviated, as Blizzard have disabled layering on all US servers, after having enabled it for select servers around a month ago. It remains to be seen when the same will come for EU servers.
      Layers (source)
      At this time, we’re contracting from two layers to one on all realms in this region that were layered.
      As we’ve constantly watched and analyzed realm populations over the last few weeks, we’ve seen enough of a recent trend to justify returning to the intended population arrangement for each realm. At the same time, we’ve unlocked any realms that were locked for new character creation.
      All Paid Character Transfer restrictions have been left in place. We’re going to continue to use our ability to disable that service as a stopgap, and we’ll let you know when we open or close it further.

      Nefarian and co. are having a really bad month, as APES' previous speed clear record has been taken down! The previous fastest guild had already taken 26 seconds of the time we had previously reported, and the new champions GUSY have taken another 20 seconds off that, which may not sound like much, but when your clear is that fast to begin with, it's still pretty impressive.
      Shockingly, the raid had 18 warriors and 7 rogues, with the rest of the DPS classes fighting it out for 6 slots, and the priests also joined in the DPS fun with a whole lot of smites as well! Congrats to GUSY on the run, and we're sure to see even more extremely close clears, as the guilds now compete in terms of seconds.
