Razer has announced that it will be sponsoring over R40 000 in hardware prizes to the 2014 Telkom Do Gaming League (DGL) League of Legends Championships.
Razer designs products based on three fundamental tenets: technology, ergonomics, and validation from the very best professional gamers. World class scientists and engineers develop cutting edge technology in-house or with partners, design products with extensive human interfacing studies and then test the hell out of them in field with pro-gamers before launch.
Not only does Razer work with the very best in the eSports scene, it believes in helping the community grow. It was one of the pioneers back in the early days of competitive gaming, and to this day continues to sponsor top cyber athletes and international teams with aspirations of epic glory and ever-increasing prize money. They in turn give back to Razer by testing and validating our products.
Razer is well-known for its involvement in eSports across the world by sponsoring tournaments around the globe as well as some well-known teams such as Alliance, Counter Logic Gaming and Team Liquid. It provides gaming headsets, mice, keyboards, mouse pads and other peripherals to professional eSports players as well as casual gamers the world over.
Marco Chillon, General Manager (Europe) of Razer says that Razer is very excited to be sponsoring the DGL 2014 League of Legends Championships again.
“We’ve always supported growing competitive scenes just as much as the developed ones, and we’re glad to cement this partnership in South Africa with DGL. The South African League of Legends scene is quickly developing with DGL spearheading some of the country’s most prestigious championships, and we look forward to the opportunities on offer for all South African League of Legends players,” he says.
Ricus Groenewald, Telkom Gaming Specialist, says it’s wonderful to see sponsors like Razer continuing their relationship with the DGL and continuing their support for LOL.
“Razer have affirmed their commitment to gaming in South Africa and it’s wonderful to see them continue to back LoL as a title. We look forward to competitive season in LoL as the top teams battle it out for supremacy,” he says.
