Razer, leading global lifestyle brand for gamers, announced a new partnership between Team Razer, Razer’s in-house exports organization, and x-kom AGO, one of Poland’s leading esports teams. This partnership will see Team Razer supply the players with esports-grade peripherals and supporting activities through the 2020 season.
Rapid expansion of the esports arena means more competition, and individual player performance can make or break a season. Peak performance needs not just effective training, but also environmental optimization, making sure equipment isn’t the one that limits potential. This philosophy is shared by both Team Razer and x-kom AGO, one of the driving reasons of the partnership.
Created in 2012, Team Razer is Razer’s esports brand where supported teams and players unite to enjoy the many benefits of being part of an experienced, established, esports-focused company. x-kom AGO’s progressive new training regime has drawn Team Razer’s interest, and thus the partnership was established to provide the players the market’s best peripherals to further enhance their training program.
x-kom AGO, building on two years of competitive experience in major global tournaments, are revolutionizing their approach to esports training for 2020. Taking cues from conventional sports training, players, coaches and managers are tracked through a variety of metrics with the aid of wearable sensors, custom software and AI implementation to highlight areas for improvement.
x-kOM AGO players will be using Razer peripherals as part of the partnership in training sessions and tournaments, with sets already sent to them to select according to their needs from Razer’s impressive equipment catalogue.
“At Razer, innovation is one of our founding values and a mindset that we strongly share with x-kom AGO.”
“We are proud and excited to work with a team finding creative ways to write the next chapters of their story. This partnership will see us pool our collective knowledge and take Polish esports on an amazing global journey.”
Yann Salsedo, Head of Esports (EMEA) at Razer
x-kom AGO becomes part of Team Razer’s illustrious roster of esports teams: from ESL One New York 2019 champions Evil Geniuses and German esports club Mousesports. Team Razer also develops new products by working with these players on product design, features and testing to help the Research & Development teams create market-leading, high-performance peripherals the company is known for.
“I am very happy that x-kom AGO has become an ambassador for the Razer brand in the region.”
“It was the personalized approach of the Razer staff and the understanding of the brand’s headquarters for our philosophy of systematic competence development that convinced us unequivocally to establish a relationship with this particular partner.”
Jakub Szumielewicz, president of x-kom AGO
