THIS IS ESPORTS

THIS IS FUUDO

ABOUT FUUDO

Hailed as one of the top R. Mika players in the world, Keita “Fuudo” Ai is a professional Street Fighter player widely recognized as the originator of countless high-level strategies that many R. Mika players use today. From his fighting game roots in Virtua Fighter (where he’s also considered as one of the greatest), Fuudo brought his solid fundamentals and near-perfect execution to Street Fighter to become the EVO 2011 champion, and has been a mainstay in the game’s top rankings ever since. For all the latest updates on Fuudo, follow him on Twitter at @TheFuudo

THE PERSON BEHIND THE PLAYER

When Fuudo isn’t training or competing, you can often find him hunting for his next great bowl of ramen in Tokyo or slurping down his favorite order at Kikanbo. To him, a bowl of ramen is more than just comfort food, but the culmination of discipline and training that the chefs must go through to consistently produce the perfect result—something he identifies with.

WHAT IS ESPORTS?

Beyond the packed stadiums, flashy buzzwords and million-dollar prizes, lies the real soul of esports. It’s the discipline to train non-stop and develop the strategy and skills to bend your opponent to your will. It’s the camaraderie and bonds made between teammates, fans and countrymen as you experience painful losses and the euphoria of victory. And most of all, it’s the never-ending drive and passion to keep competing—and win.

This is Esports.
This is #TeamRazer.

WE ARE THE ELITE

Across different game genres and platforms—from PC, to console to mobile gaming—Team Razer is a collective of the best teams and Esports athletes around the world. We are the elite and have the wins to prove it. But what really unites us isn’t the flashy trophies, but that we all share the same fire. No matter how many wins or losses the night before, we still get up every day to put in 100% again and again, because a true winner has no limits.

Esports THEN AND NOW

Esports is now a global phenomenon and breaking new records every day—but it didn’t happen overnight. What started from LAN parties has evolved to tiny competitions with more contestants than audience, to maxed-out stadiums and online viewership that dwarfs other traditional sports. And Razer was there since the beginning—backing events and sponsoring Team Razer Esports athletes.

Check out our milestones below.

Year 2000, the year that started it all. From sponsoring Cyber Athlete Professional League (CPL) with $100,000—an unprecedented amount at the time—to partnering with one of the world’s first pro gamers, Johnathan “Fatal1ty” Wendel, we began to make our mark on the Esports scene.

As competitive gaming grew, so did our pool of elite Esports athletes. With teams like Team Liquid and LGD Gaming, and athletes like SlayerS_BoxeR and Method coming on board, we expanded to over 50 teams competing in dominant titles, and just kept on growing. In 2012, we formed a singular banner to spotlight the world’s elite Esports athletes—Team Razer.

Team Razer started to dominate. In 2013, Team Alliance took home US$1.43 million at The International 3, the biggest Dota 2 competition at the time. Just two years later, SK Telecom T1 secured their 3rd consecutive win in the 2016 League of Legends World Championship, clinching US$2 million in prize money. This cemented their status as the world’s most dominating League of Legends team.

In 2017, we hit new milestones and big wins. We grew to 175 top Esports elites from 30 different countries, including SK Gaming, who won both ESL Cologne 2017 and EPICENTER 2017, and MenaRD who emerged champion for Capcom Cup. But nothing got bigger than this—Team Liquid were crowned Champions for The International 7 with $11.8 million in prize money.

The global phenomenon continues. In 2018, we’ve signed on Seoul Dynasty and Los Angeles Valiant for Overwatch, mobile-only Esports team Team Queso, and more. With a growing involvement in mobile Esports and active plans to get Esports into the 2019 Southeast Asian Games and 2024 Olympics, we continue to provide relentless support for our passionate athletes and teams—Esports will always be in our blood.
