Logitech makes a splash at League of Legends Season Three Championship Series
Swiss peripherals manufacturer Logitech is not a company that shies away from the spotlight. In fact, they have just announced that they will be, yet again, the official sponsor of the League of Legends Season Three Championship Series by offering their range of mice and keyboards for all of those involved. According to Dustin Beck, VP of esports for Riot Games, “Our fans love Logitech’s gaming accessories, and we’re excited to have them back as a sponsor this year. Plus, they have great rapport with the gaming community, which makes our partnership with them a natural fit.” Sounds like a partnership worth continuing, right?
Just what does this sponsorship mean to gamers, other than supporting exciting and fun eSports entertainment such as League of Legends? Logitech has moved beyond slapping on their company logo on a banner that advertises the event, as the team there have been working closely with Riot over the past few months in order to introduce additional capabilities to the Logitech G range, and summoners out there will be able to appreciate the amount of work and effort that went in. In fact, Logitech is more than pleased to announce a range of hardware features which will now be supported directly in the League of Legends client.
These new features will include the capability of all G-keys (no exceptions here) in Logitech mice, keyboards and headsets being selectable as bindable keys directly in the in-game interface. Not only that, you also have multi-color LED lighting in the new Logitech G510s and G19s keyboards that are capable of switching to indicate the color of your team, and even when you are in colorblind mode, no exceptions will be made. The Logitech G510s and G19s GamePanel LCD will also be able to show off constantly updated statistics that are normally found in the character subscreen, and these will include cool-down reduction, or stats that were not previously available, such as gold per minute. Are you stoked by what is made available?
