RAZER TEAMS UP WITH CHINESE DOTA LEGENDS LGD GAMING
California. USA – 22 October, 2011 – Razer™, the world’s leading high-end precision gaming brand, and LGD Gaming, indisputably one of the biggest names in Chinese Defense of the Ancients, join forces in a bid to stamp out any hope of competition.
Founded in 2009, LGD Gaming’s Defense of the Ancients team was an instant sensation, overpowering KingSurf and EHome at Sendi Mutiara Multimedia Grand National DotA Tournament 2009, their first major international competition, to take 1st place and cement their place in a thriving scene. Led by DoTA celebrity Gong “ZSMJ” Jian, otherwise known as “GodJian” for his ability to defy the odds and guide his team to victory, LGD Gaming is a pillar of the Chinese DoTA scene and Razer will be extending their full support.
“Dota in China is huge but it’s still a developing scene so we’re honored Razer has decided to support us,” said Gong “ZSMJ” Jian. “With Razer now behind us we feel more confident about our future and we promise not to disappoint.”
“China teams are a growing force in the MOBA scene, and under the leadership of ZSMJ, LGD has become one of the most outstanding. Their determination to succeed, unwavering focus and discipline are great examples of how a professional gamer should be,” says Robert “RazerGuy” Krakoff, President of Razer USA. “With this partnership, we’re looking forward to celebrating LGD’s successes not only in China, but on the world stage.”
