With World of Warcraft patch 9.1 having finally landed, that can only mean one thing – another Race to World First (RWF) is on the horizon. On the hunt for its third consecutive title is Complexity-Limit, which has announced that its coverage of the Sanctum of Domination event will feature a fresh set of bells and whistles when it kicks off on July 13.
“Beginning as a grassroots competition, Race to World First is quickly becoming one of the most culturally relevant and fastest-growing events in competitive gaming,” says Complexity Gaming general manager Sören Vendsahm. Eager to continue driving the event’s growth as a spectator esport – December’s Castle Nathria event peaked at 220,000 concurrent viewers – Complexity has upped the ante to ensure casual viewers remain engaged, and can easily digest what’s unfolding before them.
To aid this goal, popular cooking streamer Aracely ‘Lulaboo’ Garcia has been brought on board to host ‘Eggs Over Azeroth’, a daily morning show which serves as a preview for the day’s action. Meanwhile, a “rotating cast” of analysts including Tristan ‘Dratnos’ Killeen, ‘Kalamazi’, and Aiden ‘Veyloris’ Haight will present ‘RWF After Dark’ in the evenings to break down each day’s events.
On top of this, returning community partners in Raider.io and Wowhead will provide real-time stats and graphs throughout the hunt for Sylvanas Windrunner. Complexity also says that Chinese streaming platform DouYu will also be producing its own, localised broadcast.

Complexity-Limit previously set records in February 2020’s Ny’alotha raid, and Shadowlands’ first raid – Castle Nathria – back in December. The 18-player raid team will now be looking to further cement its place at the top in the Sanctum of Domination.
