SteelSeries Evil Geniuses line announced

steelseries evil geniusesSteelSeries has just announced a new line of tournament-ready products in collaboration with its elite esport partner, Evil Geniuses.

This team has won more tournament prize money than any other esport organisation in the world. Now they’ve put their stamp on a range of SteelSeries professional gaming peripherals.

The Evil Geniuses line combines more than 15 years of SteelSeries esport experience with the hands-on expertise of the best gamers in the world.

Arm your battle station with the gear that’s won millions

What better way to outfit your gaming rig than to use the same kit that has won a team millions in prize money?

There’s the Arctis headset with a custom-designed Arctis headband to kick things off. The EG limited edition of the M500 keyboard with Cherry MX Red keys looks awesome.

To round things off there’s the custom-tuned Rival 300 (personally, I love the 700) and QcK+ mousepad.

Rival 300 Evil Geniuses Edition

It uses a Pixart PMW3310 optical sensor, has six programmable buttons and lights up with prism RGB illumination.

Ehtisham Rabbani, SteelSeries CEO states:

For years, SteelSeries has collaborated with Evil Geniuses to test and improve our products to ensure they are tournament ready.

The Rival 300 is my mouse of choice.”

Apex M500 Evil Geniuses keyboard

Featuring Cherry MX Red switches for ultra-fast clicks and double taps it packs everything you’d expect from a pro-gaming board.

For instance, you get full anti-ghosting, as well as SteelSeries Engine compatibility.

Evil Geniuses player, Saahil “Universe” Arora chipped in:

The M500 is, simply put, an excellent keyboard; one of, if not the best, mechanical keyboard I’ve ever used.”

QcK+ Evil Geniuses Edition mousepad

qck+ evil geniusesThe QcK+ Evil Geniuses Edition is the tournament-grade gaming mousepad designed and tested by professional gamers.

The nearly frictionless surface gives you unmatched tracking accuracy. I know that I’m not in their league but I love the QcK+.

The 4mm thickness of the pad is great and its non-slip rubber base is a must-have.

Evil Geniuses player, Artour “Arteezy” Babaev enthused:

The QcK+ is large and has that bit of extra padding to make it comfortable and sturdy. It also has that consistent, perfect glide that just seems natural.”
