Today Razer continues our long history of supporting teams from across the eSports spectrum by announcing Vile Gaming as our newest partner. Vile Gaming is both international and formidable, and with Razer peripherals they are certain to blaze a trail in the Starcraft 2 scene.
I’m glad to be on board with Razer. I’ve tried out many different types of mice, keyboards, and gaming accessories from a variety of companies in the last year, and Razer equipment has always been the best choice. - Michael "Spanishiwa" Yabut
Vile Gaming, Est. 2005 has been a fixture in the Starcraft community since the days of Brood War. Recently, Vile has been scouting out talent across-the-board to strengthen their roster. Among the new faces are Canadian Zerg Zac "ChAnCe" Palmer, best known for his whirlwind performance during an IPL 3 qualifier where he eliminated the likes of MarineKing and TricksteR; and former ZeNEX player Hong "Yong" Sung, a Korean Protoss.
Team manager Andrew “Atticus” Lemenager had this to say on the new partnership,
Vile Gaming is excited to begin its partnership with Razer. They have been a consistent ally of esports for years, and to align ourselves with them means that Vile Gaming will continue to grow alongside a brand that brings pride to professional gaming. With our players attending nearly every major tournament in the coming year, I’m glad to know they’ll have the best in quality equipment to give them an edge.
Vile has been extremely active this past year, most recently attendeding the MLG Providence finals where Illusion, State and Spanishiwa placed 24th-31st, after defeating top North American players such as iNcontroL and Sheth. The team were also present at the recent Texas Starcraft Showdown, where State and Hawk finished in first and fourth place respectively. Vile Gaming is a force to be reckoned with within North America and now, with Razer a their side, they are ready to go the distance.
