René "Swapxy" Pinkera is a professional World of Warcraft player who is currently playing for Method Black.

Biography[edit]

Swapxy began playing World of Warcraft a few weeks before the release of the Burning Crusade expansion. He competed in his first European Regional Championship in 2011[1], but did not reach the Arena World Championship.

Swapxy attended his first World Championship with Boetar and Blukstack in 2012, having placed second in the European Regional Championship under the team name I'm Just Being Honest[2]. The team did not quite reach the Semi Finals, finishing in fifth place[3].

In 2013, Swapxy competed with the same team, this time for Bleached Bones. The team reached the Arena World Championship[4], but again failed to reach the Semi Finals.

Swapxy continued to compete frequently with Boetar and in 2015, the two alongside Fabss and Joefernandes competed for SK Gaming on the Road to BlizzCon. The team won the European Regional Championship[5] and went on to win their first World Championship at BlizzCon[6].

In 2016, Swapxy, Boetar and Fabss decided to compete together again, sponsored by Splyce. The team placed second in the European Regional Championship, remaining undefeated until the Grand Final against Northern Gaming Blue[7]. At BlizzCon, the team won their second World Championship together[8]. They were the first team in history to achieve this.

On March 31st 2017, it was announced that Swapxy, Boetar and Fabss would be sponsored by Method during the 2017 season under the name Method Triforce[9].
