Logitech G Supports Top Malaysian Gamers

Logitech Malaysia partners with Garena Malaysia to grow the gaming industry in the country

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia — June 14, 2016 — Logitech, the world’s innovation and design leader of products that connect people to the digital experience they care about today announced a partnership with game distributor Garena to seal their commitment to the Malaysian gaming industry.
Through the partnership, Logitech will be sponsoring Malaysia’s professional League of Legends team Kuala Lumpur Hunters (KL Hunters).

KL Hunters occupies the top 100 th spot in the world eSports rank – electronic sports most commonly in the form of multiplayer video game competitions between professional players – and 12th on the Southeast Asian ladder.

“As we aim to nurture and develop competitive multi-player computer gaming locally, this partnership is in line with Logitech’s continuous support towards the Malaysian eSports scene,” said Logitech Malaysia Country Manager KP Sim.

As an industry leader in gaming peripherals, Logitech hopes that this sponsorship will inspire budding talents to pursue their ambition in gaming.

Demonstrating the talent of KL Hunters at the event, members of the media witnessed a match of League of Legends (LoL) with the team members.

“We spend 12 hours a day practicing and refining our skills so that we can compete in the upcoming Garena Premier League Summer of Season in August”, said Poon “OzoraVeki” Kok Sing.
Poon revealed that as professional gamer, it is important for the team to equip themselves with the best professional grade gaming devices available to enable them to perform better.

He disclosed that the basic devices a gamer would need are mouse, headset and a keyboard.

Logitech G900 Chaos Spectrum for instance is the team’s trusted mouse because the device delivers incredible responsiveness for competition-level twitch targeting.

“Gaming competitions can be quite nerve-wrecking and a second of latency can be all it takes to win or lose the battle. The mouse has a 1-millisecond report rate and comes highly optimized with 2.4GHz wireless connection. That is why the team relies on it highly,” he said.

When it comes to team-based gaming, communication with other team members is key and the last thing gamer want is to communicate with their team members when the microphone is on mute. Logitech G633 Artemis Spectrum comes with a mic boom that has an indicator light when the mic is on mute. Apart from its crystal clear noise-cancelling boom mic, the headphone also allows the team members to hear when enemies are sneaking behind them.

Poon revealed that when it comes to keyboard, the Spectrum is his favorite as it gives him the flexibility to customize the lighting and custom buttons for his favorite game.
