(PresseBox) ( Hamburg, )
ROCCAT, the Hamburg-based manufacturer of professional gaming accessories, becomes a new sponsor of the Intel Extreme Masters, strengthening the existing collaboration between the manufacturer and the gaming community.

The Intel® Extreme Masters is the biggest event in the Electronic Sports League (ESL) and at the same time has ranked number one among eSports championships since 2006. This competition elevates games such as Counter-Strike, World of Warcraft and Quake Live competitions to a global standing.

In 2008, ROCCAT created an input device in the form of the ROCCAT(TM) Kone Max Customization Gaming Mouse that plays right at the forefront of the global premier league of gaming mice. The partnership between ROCCAT Studios and the Intel Extreme Masters strengthens the existing collaboration between the manufacturer and the gaming community where gamers are given the opportunity to considerably influence products right from the early stages of development.


At the ROCCAT Studios in Hamburg, ROCCAT industrial designers are creating and developing peripherals in close collaboration with the global gaming community that are specially designed to meet the needs of gamers - and by supporting the Intel Extreme Masters, ROCCAT is again demonstrating its close ties to eSports. As gamers' primary tools, the mouse and keyboard are especially important both in terms of gamers' items of gear and for their success. ROCCAT's upcoming range of new products will create both the best possible and professional conditions for gamers to achieve outstanding success in 2009/2010.

René Korte, Managing Director of ROCCAT: "With the Intel Extreme Masters, we're supporting the world's most important series of eSports tournaments. As the peripheral provider to the Global Challenge, to be held in Chengdu, China between October 1-3, 2009, pros and visitors will have the first opportunity to try out ROCCAT's upcoming products on the PCs at the Intel Extreme Masters."


The Intel Extreme Masters has been the global league of eSports champions since 2006. The league elevates Counter-Strike, World of Warcraft and Quake Live competitions to a new level. eSports champions from Europe, Asia and America fight it out for US$500,000 in prize money - a record for a global online league. Live tournaments at the largest IT and gaming conventions feature the season's best teams and gamers - global stars in eSports. The league's global final will be held in early 2010 where the world's best teams and gamers will compete head-to-head.

The IPTV station ESL TV broadcasts the Intel Extreme Masters' games and tournaments.
