TEAM RAZER GOES MOBILE FOR INTERNATIONAL TOURNAMENTS
Team Razer goes where no peripheral company has gone before, championing its first ever mobile gaming division
Carlsbad, Calif. – April 1st, 2012 – Razer™, one of the world’s pioneering supporters of e-Sports, lover and stoic patron of competitive cellular telephone gaming in competitive titles such as Robot Unicorn and Angry Birds, has decided with recent events to conceive a brand new mobile gaming division to win ALL the major international tournaments.
With the sensational news that major international tournaments would now be advocating mobile phone competitive gaming (being dubbed, ‘m-Sports’) instead of PC gaming, as well as the call by other teams who have been preparing,Team Razer jumped at the opportunity to champion this new and exhilarating branch of electronic sports by creating, training and nurturing its first ever competitive cell phone team – awesome, right?
“There was a point in my life that I realised as I got older my reflexes were getting sharper. Now with the help of Razer, I am able to live my dream and become a professional tele gamer,” said Toby “TobiWanKenobi” Dawson, Chief Diversity Officer and Team Manager. “While shoutcasting is an important part of my life, being a gamer is the strongest of all callings, and now I can do that anywhere in the world and this is one call I will not answer alone. Our conference must be called.”
Having already embarked on a heavy training regime at a location which cannot be disclosed, the newly formed m-Sports team of mobile elites will undertake brutal training hours, little food, and an unquestionable love of competitive gaming on their mobile phones, ready to participate in any and all major international tournaments.
The newly formed uber-team consists of:
