Esports and Gaming are multi-billion-dollar industries, and we're going to continue supporting them through innovative gear and software gamers need and love. We believe in being true to the gaming community, which means being true to ourselves. We create products that help the best of the best be better, and products that help the not-so-good feel not-so-bad. Most of us are gamers, but you don't have to be, we promise! Just don't be surprised if you become one within a few weeks of starting!
