Former Method player added to list of abuse scandal. Some of Method’s partners and players have stepped away following several disturbing allegations from the UK-based World of Warcraft esports organisation.
A number of serious accusations were made towards former player Method Josh over the past few days publicly on Twitter. It claims the Brit committed multiple forms of abuse in recent years, including rape, soliciting graphic images of minors, grooming and other forms of sexual harassment.
Streamers Esfand and Preach Gaming have distanced themselves from Method, as have popular World of Warcraft news and content website Wowhead. Some players and partners and other internal staff have also walked away from Method or removed Method branding from their socials over the issue too.
Method have ended their relationship with Josh effective immediately. However, several people in the community are unhappy it took this long for action to be taken.
