For Release on Nov. 30, 2017 - Hamburg, Germany – Razer™, the leading global lifestyle brand for gamers, and SK Telecom T1’s (SKT T1), the most decorated “League of Legends” professional team, today celebrated the team’s recent runner-up performance at the 2017 League of Legends World Championships with the launch of licensed peripherals.
“SKT T1 is the most decorated League of Legends team of all time and we are proud to have them with Team Razer,” says Min-Liang Tan, Razer co-founder and CEO. “These players have consistently delivered championships & runner-up performances, faced some incredible challenges and persevered to show us their determination and skill. They are a true inspiration to gamers everywhere.”
SKT T1 is the only team in history to have reached the League of Legends World Championships finals four times, winning three of the four tournaments. The SKT T1 peripherals include the team’s preferred mouse and mouse mat combo, the Razer DeathAdder Elite and the Razer Goliathus. Both peripherals are skinned in true SKT T1 fashion.
“The Razer DeathAdder is my mouse of choice that I’ve used during our victories over the past five years,” says SKT T1’s Bae “Bang” Jun-sik. “The greatest advantage of the mouse is its durability to withstand extensive hours of gaming. It’s gone through the toughest of challenges and has never let me down. It sets the standard when it comes to gaming mice.”
Echoed SKT T1’s Lee “Faker” Sang-hyeok, arguably the best League of Legends player of all-time: “I used the Razer DeathAdder even before I became a pro gamer. It fits my hands the best. The Razer DeathAdder is a necessity to win.”
Faker and SKT T1 are three-time world champions and have been part of Team Razer since 2015. Team Razer also includes Team Liquid, recent Dota 2 International 2017 champions, and SK Gaming, winners of multiple Counter Strike: Global Offensive tournaments in 2017.
