Logitech has announced that it is sponsoring R50,000 to the Telkom Do Gaming League (DGL) 2012 Starcraft 2 Championships.
John Smyth, Logitech Senior Retail Account Manager, says the company is excited to get on board with local gamers and the League.
"We want to support the gaming community and feel the DGL was the perfect platform to do so," he says. "We're very excited about this year's league and are looking forward to some fantastic competition."
Logitech are releasing some exciting products into the market for gamers, such as the G-series gaming mice (G300, G400) as well as the G-series headsets (G35 and G930) and G-series keyboards. With the Logitech Unifying receiver - a small USB device - gamers can pair six different devices together and customise and control them through Logitech's Unifying 200 Software, which can be downloaded at the Logitech website. Pairing can change as gamers require. See more about the Unifying Receiver here.
The Logitech G300 mouse
With this software, gamers can assign mic mute controls to the mouse buttons, DPI adjustments to keyboard G-keys, or even multi-key macros on the headset, and so on. They all integrate together very well.
A useful feature is the DPI Shift function for the mice. It allows gamers to set a button on their G-Series keyboard or a G-series mouse to change the DPI while that key is pressed down. This has benefits for sniping or speeding up certain sections of games. Check out more at details at this blog post.
"Gamers need customisation and detailed products that integrate with a slick interface. Logitech is looking to produce great products that gamers can really use to make their gaming experience even better," Smyth says.
Although the first leg of the DGL 2012 is underway, gamers can still register for Leg 2 here. The DGL runs over three legs during the year and culminates in the Do Gaming Championships at the end of the year, where the best of the best are invited to compete for fantastic prizes. With Logitech's R50,000 sponsorship to the Starcraft 2 DGL, the competition will only get better.
