Razer has custom designed a mouse, a mouse pad, and a keyboard for Evil Geniuses, a world premiere eSports organization.
The limited edition Evil Geniuses eSports line specifically features a Razer Taipan gaming mouse, a Razer Goliathus gaming mouse mat, and a Razer BlackWidow Ultimate Stealth Edition mechanical gaming keyboard. All of the peripherals are tournament ready, including features such as an 8200 dpi laser sensor in the mouse (which retails for $89.99), a glide-attuned surface on the mouse mat (which costs $19.99) for slick mouse movement , as well as fast-actuating mechanical switches in the keyboard (sold for $149.99).
Min-Liang Tan, Razer co-founder, CEO, and creative director, remarked on the peripherals in his statements that, “These products are great banners for both the players and fans to rally behind. There couldn’t be a better time to be a fan of Evil Geniuses, given their versatility, performance and all-star lineup.”
For the peripherals’ design, Evil Geniuses’ direct input contributed to the visual details that are inspired by the team’s blue and silver colors. Additionally, the keyboard and mouse include white backlighting.
Evil Geniuses is home to popular and accomplished cyber-athletes, including Geoff “iNcontroL” Robinson and Lee “Jaedong” Jae Dong. In 2013 thus far, the team has 16 podium placements in events such as the StarCraft II World Championship Series, DreamHack, Intel Extreme Masters, and The Premier League.
Alex Garfield, Evil Geniuses CEO, commented that, “Razer’s enthusiasm for a custom line of Evil Geniuses products was a major factor in our decision to partner with them in the first place. It shows that there was an internal commitment at Razer to help us grow as a business.”
