The former FenixGG team, who have been playing under the name Paradox in CEVO-P Season 7 and the ESEA ESL Pro League, have been signed by Method.
The Paradox squad announced that they had left their previous organisation FenixGG (where they were also sometimes known as Fenix Fire) on the first of May, and immediately declared that they were looking for new sponsors ahead of upcoming seasons of CEVO and the ESL ESEA Pro League.
With the team continuing to make a strong account of themselves in both leagues, their promise caught the eye of Method, an organisation whose genesis as a World of Warcraft guild has evolved to see them investing in other games such as Hearthstone and Heroes of the Storm.

The organisation has decided to now dip its toes into CS:GO waters with the news that it has officially signed the Paradox team with immediate effect. In a statement on the organisation's website, Paradox player Zachary "Eley" Stauffer wrote:
|"The team and I are very excited to announce joining the Method family. Being the first CS:GO team to represent this amazing organization is a special opporunity and we will work hard to meet and exceed expectations. I would like to thank everyone who has supported us thus far and continue to support us. We have finally found a home and now can just focus on becoming the best team we can be. Expect big things from Method CS:GO!"|

|"We are extremely happy to announce that we will be joining Method. After many many meetings, our team overall felt very confident that Method is the best option for our team. Now with the full support of Method we can put all our time and focus on becoming a top team."|
