GET GOSU-LEVEL GAMEPLAY WITH ALL-NEW MVP RAZER GOLIATHUS
MVP joins forces with Razer to release their very own team-branded surface
CARLSBAD, Calif. – Nov. 6, 2012 - Razer, the world leader in high-performance gaming hardware, and MVP, all-star South Korean StarCraft II pro-team, have come together to make mineral harvesting, build-order-queuing and opponent-destroying a highly precise affair with the MVP Razer Goliathus e-Sports edition mouse mat.
Only five months after their official recognition as a pro-team by the Korea StarCraft II Association, MVP placed second in the 2011 Global StarCraft II Team League May, sealing their status as a force to be reckoned with in the StarCraft II e-Sports scene. MVP went on to win the overall 2011 Global StarCraft II Team League Season 1 and, in 2012, Korean StarCraft II League Opening Ceremonies and the Asia StarCraft II Invitational Tournament.
“MVP is one of those teams where every single pro-gamer in the roster is quite literally a Most Valuable Player,” said Robert ‘RazerGuy’ Krakoff, president of Razer USA. “DongRaeGu, KeeN, sC, Sniper, TaiLS, and Vampire are a few on the list. These players are formidable individuals, but when you put them together in one team, they are unstoppable. The MVP Razer Goliathus mouse mat pays tribute to their excellence and contribution to e-Sports, delivering an exciting high level of play for us all to enjoy and learn from.”
MVP Pro-Gamer Park ‘DongRaeGu’ Soo Ho said: “All of us at MVP strive to be the best at what we do, but more importantly, we are at our happiest when playing for our fans. So we are happy to share a part of our team with them through the MVP Razer Goliathus, and we hope it encourages them to always play their best too.”
Exclusively designed with MVP’s iconic shield logo, the Goliathus mat gives fans an exclusive badge of allegiance to their favourite team, as well as performance-boosting features like its heavily textured weave delivering the right level of resistance for controlled, precise movements under their gaming mice.
The MVP Razer Goliathus e-Sports Edition is now available for purchase from Razerzone.com and teamliquid.net.
