Method revealed that Nikita 'waterfaLLZ' Matveyev is parting ways with their roster effective immediately and Igor 'dERZKIY' Radosavlevich will be joining the team on trial.
Following an unsuccessful run with their North American roster, Method decided to venture into the CIS region and picked up the Russian lineup before they attended the StarLadder CIS Regional Minor Championship. The team failed to qualify for the MLG Columbus 2016 Main Qualifier as they ended up in the 3-4th position.
The problems continued when Dmitriy "facecrack" Alekseyev and Ivan "spaze" Obrezhan, arguably their best players, couldn't attain visas to enter Lithuania where the $100,000 Game Show Global eSports Cup 2016 Finals were held. The team had to field two Estonian stand-ins who were Kristjan "fejtZ" Allsaar and Hendrik "cheti" Vallimägi as they went out in the group stage.
