GAMA BEARS JOIN HANDS WITH RAZER TO TAKE DOWN THE COMPETITION
California. USA – October 14th, 2011 –Razer™, one of the world’s pioneering supporters of eSports, and Gama Bears, the official eSports team of leading Taiwanese digital entertainment company Gamania, have formed a partnership that will help further expand the thriving Taiwanese eSports scene.
Gamania, which has over 10 million registered users worldwide, created its Taiwanese eSports team to compete in the Taiwanese Esports League (TESL); a new league established in 2008 which grooms home grown Taiwanese talent through fierce competition and televised matches. Gama Bears’ passion for Taiwanese eSports even grabbed the attention of Taiwanese StarCraft II champion and Zerg overlord Yang “Sen” Chia Cheng who returns home after years of competing for international teams, to lend his expertise to the ever-burgeoning scene.
“To have a televised league and well-established domestic companies supporting Taiwanese eSports is a show of confidence as to how much love Taiwan has for competitive gaming, and it is without a doubt something we want to encourage,” said Robert “RazerGuy” Krakoff, President of Razer USA. “So in line with our mission to bring eSports to every corner of the Earth in a huge way, we’re happy to get behind Gama Bears and their grassroots approach to develop eSports in Taiwan.”
Razer will be outfitting the entire Gama Bear roster with their premium Razer gaming peripherals designed to grant them the edge in competitive play. “I’ve always focused more on improving my gaming skills than what peripherals I use, but now that Razer is partnering with Gama Bears, I expect to make the most of every game I play,” said “Sen” Yang Chia Cheng. “With Razer’s support, Gama Bears will be able to achieve great things in our competitions.”
“I believe that Gama Bears players will surely benefit from this partnership with Razer, and I look forward to their forthcoming victories,” Gama Bears manager Alan Chang adds.
