RAZER AND TEAM MVP FIGHTING!
Elite Korean StarCraft II team joins the ranks of Team Razer!
Carlsbad, Calif. – 2nd March, 2012 – Razer™, one of the world’s pioneering supporters of e-Sports, and Team MVP, Korean powerhouse e-Sports organization, will be joining forces to further and strengthen Korean pro-gaming and ensure further financial assistance for their players to attend international events.
Razer’s decision to support another top Korean pro-gaming organization is a move to reinforce and extend support for e-Sports in the region as well as on an international level whereby players from Team MVP will see increased support for international tournaments - such as GSTL Finals in Las Vegas - allowing them a greater chance to experience and win foreign StarCraft II events.
Recognized officially as a Korean pro-gaming organization in late 2010, Team MVP placed first in the Global StarCraft II Team League Season 1 in 2011 to cement themselves as one of Korea’s finest StarCraft II teams. MVP’s roster includes some of the world’s best known players, including Code S finalists team captain, Zerg mastermind and Code S regular
Park “DongRaeGu” Soo Ho and 2010 Blizzcon victor and Protoss player Jung “Genius” Min Soo, both of whom will contribute heavily to the creation and development of new Razer peripherals.
“It’s an honor to work alongside arguably one of the best StarCraft II organizations in the world,” said Robert “RazerGuy” Krakoff, President, Razer USA. “Korea is in many ways the heart of e-Sports for StarCraft II and supporting such a distinguished team allows both of us to grow, develop and reinforce our support for this community on many levels”.
"We are pleased to be supported by the number one gaming gear company, Razer," said Yun-sang Choi, Head-Coach and Owner, MVP TEAM. "The MVP players and I appreciate Razer’s passion for e-Sports as a whole and we will try to show good and interesting games for StarCraft 2 fans in the world. We look forward to a strong and positive future between Razer and MVP from this point forward.”
