Fnatic, the world-leading eSports team, is launching Fnatic Gear, a line of gaming hardware products designed specifically for eSports on the crowdfunding platform Indiegogo.
Having been a pioneer in eSports following 11 years at the top, Fnatic is now turning its sights onto pro-grade hardware. With extensive experience in developing, designing and utilising gaming hardware from previous partners, Fnatic knows first hand what is needed to deliver affordable eSports gear that aspiring eSports pros actually need. At launch, Fnatic Gear includes four pieces of eSports-grade gaming equipment:
- The RUSH Mechanical Keyboard, with pledges starting from $119, is equipped with top-tier technology, providing the rapid response, control, and feel needed to perform at the highest level of eSports
- The FLICK Optical Mouse, with pledges starting from $49, is designed by Fnatic’s professional gamers and packing the industry revered PixArt ADNS 3310 sensor to deliver the precision accuracy and control that they require
- The FOCUS Cloth Mouse Pad, at 3mm thin, offers a flexible gaming surface, ranging from small to an entire desktop in size – providing an unobstructed, edge-to-edge gaming experience. Preferred by players seeking control and comfort. Pledges for FOCUS start from $19 plus shipping
- The BOOST Hard Mouse Pad, with pledges starting from $19 plus shipping, is designed to provide a nearly seamless tracking surface. With an extra-slim profile it delivers an unobstructed edge-to-edge gaming experience
Working with their new R&D and Industrial Design team out of Sweden, Fnatic has finished designing and testing their first Gear products. The team is now relying on indiegogo to get community involvement and put these products in the hands of gamers, both casual and professional, all over the world. The funds raised through the crowdfunding campaign will be used to further R&D and the development of new Fnatic Gear products.
[quote by=”Brian Kerr, CEO of Fnatic Gear”]A world-class tennis player needs a world-class racket, a golfer needs state of the art and reliable clubs. eSports is no different. Fnatic’s players care deeply about the gear they use, just like these other athletes. Starting Fnatic Gear is our chance to actually create the world-class products our players need to perform. We feel the current market has been lost in gimmicky lights and features not needed in eSports. Fnatic was built by the support we get from our community and Fans, so we’re not keeping these products to ourselves, in fact we’re striving to make them as affordable as possible. This way everyone in eSports can compete on an equal playing field.[/quote]
Pledges to receive Fnatic Gear start from $19 and also includes a VIP pledge for the chance for fans to go to one of the Fnatic gaming houses and to head backstage at an eSports tournament to meet the players.
