– Team Solomid Selects Corsair PC Gaming Keyboards, Mice and PC Components for League of Legends Competition –
FREMONT, California — March 7, 2013 — Corsair® today announced that professional eSports champions Team SoloMid have selected Corsair's Vengeance® gaming keyboards, mice, and mouse mats as their gear of choice for League of Legends competition. The team will also exclusively use Corsair PC cases, power supplies, and cooling products in their training center PCs.
Team SoloMid is one of the top-ranked teams in League of Legends, the world's most played video game with over 12 million active players per day.
Team SoloMid captain Andy ‘Reginald’ Dinh said, "We train constantly and leave our PCs running and ready to go, so stability and speed are really important to us. We've been using Corsair hardware in our Origin gaming PCs since last season and performance has been absolutely flawless." The experience led to a partnership with Corsair and an endorsement of Corsair's cases, power supplies, and cooling products.
The partnership led to Andy's discovery of the advantages of Corsair gaming keyboards and mice. “The Corsair keyboards, mice, and mouse mats are the best. The first time I held them I was impressed at how solidly built they are. Their aluminum base, mechanical keys and buttons just scream precision and they look cool. As soon as I played my first match I was hooked. No more flimsy plastic or mushy keys.”
"The guys in Team SoloMid are extraordinarily skilled players that generate excitement and connect with fans around the world,” said Ruben Mookerjee, VP and General Manager of the Peripherals Business Unit at Corsair. "They rose to dominance through their total dedication to improving their gameplay. We are honored that they've chosen our products to take their skills to the next level.”
Team SoloMid is currently ranked 3rd with 7 wins. The members of Team SoloMid will debut their use of Corsair keyboards and mice in their next match on March 15th.
