SWORDS DRAWN AND SHIELDS UP FOR TEAM RAZER’S LATEST AND MOST PROMISING ADDITIONS
Team Razer welcomes Najin Black Sword and Najin White Shield to its elite roster
Razer, one of the world’s pioneering supporters of eSports, is delighted to announce a partnership with Najin Black Sword and their sister team, Najin White Shield, and to welcome them into Team Razer’s elite roster of talented and highly skilled eSports athletes.
Team Razer’s collaboration with the two top-tier Korean League of Legends teams is a move to further strengthen and extend support for eSports in Korea as well as on an international level. Team Razer will enable the team to grow their social media presence, international reach and global travel budget. Together the two parties aim to promote the importance and impact of Korean League of Legends on the industry as a whole.
“The addition of world class teams like Najin Black Sword and Najin White Shield to Team Razer goes to show the calibre of teams we strive to support in eSports here,” said Min-Liang Tan, Razer-founder, CEO and creative director. “Throughout the year we’ll look to Najin as worldwide eSports ambassadors, and look forward to their contributions to our product testing and validation program as well.”
Both Najin teams have been mainstays of the Korean League of Legends scene for some time now, with Najin Black Sword the team’s premier roster, taking a notable victory at the OGN Winter Tournament 2012-2013 as well as claiming first place over Azubu Frost at the Olympus Champions Winter 2012-2013. The team is also well known for their first visit to the United States where they took home silver after they attended the MLG Fall Championship in 2012. Najin White Shield’s latest outings on the other hand saw them narrowly miss out on the WCG spot for Korea and two second placements at AMD-Inven Game Experience and the NLB Spring 2013.
Firstly, we’re grateful of such a partnership with the world’s best peripheral developer,” said Seok Jin Lee, Najin CEO. “We’ve been using Razer gear for a long time now already and I felt like it was the natural choice. We hope to show good games this year in leagues and tournaments with Razer.”
Both teams will have their work cut out this year as they strive to navigate what is an incredibly strong Korean League of Legends scene, and both will look towards eventual qualification to the Season 4 League of Legends World Championships to compete against the best across the world.
