The company’s mission is to create performance enhancing gaming gear that reduces reaction times and enhances precision and accuracy.

“We’re proud to be chosen as provider of gaming equipment for compLexity, one of the most successful teams in the history of eSports,” says Kim Rom        , Head of PR & Communications for SteelSeries. “The amazingly talented players from compLexity will help us with product development, which is a vital part of our strategy and design philosophy. After all, who is better suited for the task, than the pro’s who actually uses the products when they win the world’s toughest tournaments?”

“A lot of companies claim to support eSports, gaming and the fantastic community around it, but in reality their involvement is very limited in scope and sincerity. However SteelSeries has been the leading innovator of team sponsorships on a global level and are as passionate about gaming as the people who play the actual games,” says Jason Lake, CEO of compLexity Gaming, LLC. “Via products, cash, moral support and business advice SteelSeries has always gone above and beyond, and I am thrilled to be partnered with them for another great season for compLexity Gaming.”
