SteelSeries, a leading manufacturer of innovative professional gaming gear, today announced a new sponsorship of GameSense™, GotFrag’s definitive statistical database for competitive PC gaming. GotFrag is the world’s leading coverage site for eSports with more than 700,000 unique visitors a month.
No sport is complete without statistics. GotFrag’s GameSense is the definitive statistical platform for PC eSports and was a natural fit for SteelSeries’ mission to support the growth of eSports. GameSense tracks detailed statistics on players and teams in PC eSports and is today the only mathematical and statistical answer to the most important question in any sports: “Who’s the best in the world”? Moreover, the information in GameSense is used in GotFrag.com’s proprietary Content Management System to provide the latest and most detailed information in PC eSports news and coverage.
“Like professional sports have professional sports equipment, professional gaming has professional gaming gear. And SteelSeries has been a frontrunner in that industry before anyone even coined the term eSports,” says Lee Chen, President of GotFrag. “SteelSeries has time and again proven that their support of the eSports community is far more passionate than any other company on the planet. It’s a natural partner for a company like GotFrag, and I can think of few other companies that would actively be a partner for us in both promotion and development of a service like GameSense.”
“It’s a huge part of our mission statement to help grow competitive gaming as a sport,” says Kim Rom , Marketing Director for SteelSeries. “GameSense and the professional staff on GotFrag has done a lot for eSports in terms of growth, recognition and coverage of PC eSports – we’re delighted to partner with GotFrag on a project like this.”
Inside of GameSense, GotFrag readers can find in-depth information on favorite (or least favorite) players, teams and events. The system provides detailed statistics based on official matches and events from tournaments around the world. How many Frags do they have? How many Aces? Who has the best K:D ratio? Who has the worst? Who has the highest FAR? GameSense is the definitive source for the answers to these questions and many more.
GameSense 2.0 is currently in open beta and includes a brand new feature, GameSense Live! which streams live, play-by-play action to visitors web-browsers from the GameSense stats servers.
