Razer Proxygates with Team It's Gosu
Set to bring more SC2 action to North American gamers
Carlsbad, Calif. – 26th March, 2012 – Razer™, one of the world’s pioneering supporters of e-Sports and North American professional gaming team and portal It’s Gosu, will be joining forces to push and develop the Starcraft2 scene in North America. Razer and It’s Gosu share a common goal in supporting competitive gaming at both the professional and casual gaming level. Although new to the scene, It’s Gosu is quickly becoming an integral part of a perpetually growing eSports community scene in the United States.
It’s Gosu started out as a community page to host tournaments, and officially launched its website in the dawn of 2011. Following its overnight success, It’s Gosu quickly expanded to support the StarCraft II team All 4 One with American Pokebunny and former MVP player HwangSin joining the team. By the end of 2011, It’s Gosu added a League of Legends team along with the Swedish Heroes of Newerth team JAGA. Their recent acquisition of the DOTA 2 squad EZ Style only further cemented It’s Gosu’s place as an all-round esports organisation.
It’s Gosu now hosts monthly online tournaments, with February’s prize pool featuring a $4,000 prize purse. Through events, news, and interaction, It’s Gosu strikes the perfect balance between supporting seasoned professionals while still offering new players the opportunity to enter the competitive scene – a mission which Razer strongly believes in.
“It’s Gosu supports both professional gamers and the community simultaneously, and its rise to success in North America has been phenomenal,” says Robert "RazerGuy" Krakoff, President, Razer USA. “These guys clearly hit the ground running, and they don’t look like they are going to stop anytime soon. Razer is extremely happy to offer aid to not only a team of experienced gamers but also a blossoming community. It’s Gosu is definitely going places.”
“To be able to announce a partnership with Razer is a dream come true to me in many ways. When we started our family here, the goal was to achieve success on multiple levels, games, and platforms,” says It’s GosuTeam Manager Scott "GoSuRuM" Ball. “Through the hard work of our players and staff, we are always moving forward like we strive to. When I look at the list of teams that are representing Razer with us, it reminds me of how much of an honor this really is. I know I speak for everyone here at It’s Gosu when I say that we look forward to representing Razer's amazing brand throughout the world in our travels this year.”
