Logitech announced today that two of the top North American professional gaming teams Cloud9 and Team SoloMid have decided to use Logitech G hardware exclusively for the next year. They will be helping Logitech test G hardware before it goes to market and exclusively using their headsets, keyboards, mice and mouse pads whenever they head into a game.
“eSports continues to grow in popularity and play a critical role in PC gaming,”
“We’re privileged to be able to work with some of the best pro gamers in the world. By teaming up with them we can take their feedback and develop the best gaming gear on the planet.”
– Ujesh Desai, general manager of the Logitech gaming business.
Cloud9’s team include a 45 strong team for Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS:GO), Dota 2, Halo, Hearthstone, Heroes of the Storm, League of Legends (LoL), Smite and Super Smash Bros. Melee. The team finished first place in the League Championship Series (LCS) Spring 2014 for League of Legends.
“We are thrilled to be re-signing with Logitech G,”
“They have been instrumental in our success and growth by supporting us with boot camps to keeping us equipped with the best gaming peripherals – Logitech G has given us the edge we need to win.”
– Jack Etienne, owner, Cloud9.
TSM is a smaller team but one of the most popular for League of Legends and have recently formed Hearthstone and CS:GO teams. They finished in the top 10 during LoL World Finals and came first place in the LCS Summer 2014.
“I’m extremely proud to be re-signing with Logitech G as they’ve played a critical role in our success last season,”
“Not only do they provide us with the best equipment to compete with, they supported us every step of the way in 2014. I’m especially excited to continue working with them because they believe in our goals and want to help us achieve them.”
– Andy Dinh, owner, Team SoloMid.
