SteelSeries Unveils the Rival: Dota 2 Edition Gaming Mouse

SteelSeries,the global leader in gaming peripherals, today announced the SteelSeries Rival: Dota 2 Edition Gaming Mouse. Based on the award-winning Rival Optical Mouse, this ultimate performance device will also include an exclusive in-game item, Hell's Glare for Doom. This weekend, attendees of The International 4 Dota 2 Championship in Seattle, Washington will be among the first to have access to the new SteelSeries Rival Dota 2 Edition Gaming Mouse.

"We believe that Dota players deserve the best, so we set out to give fans a mouse with a design they would love without sacrificing the functionality they require," said Tino Soelberg, SteelSeries CTO. "We extensively tested our Dota 2 Edition of the Rival Optical Mouse with professional players from Natus Vincere, Invictus Gaming and Fnatic which has resulted in one of the most powerful mice we've ever built - and to make it even more special for the Dota 2 community, we've added a unique in-game item."

TOURNAMENT-GRADE PERFORMANCE
Whether you're part of the Dire or Radiance, winning is everything. This precision gaming tool was carefully crafted after a rich history of tournament-grade mice created for the best professional players around the globe. Gamers can tune their CPI, polling rate, mouse acceleration, and a full arsenal of performance mods in an easy to use interface courtesy of SteelSeries Engine 3. All of these things together create a mouse that is guaranteed to never be the reason why you miss another last hit.

ENDLESS CUSTOMIZATION, DOTA STYLE
The SteelSeries Rival Dota 2 Edition is the ultimate mouse built for fans of the globally loved title from Valve. Each part, from the stone-gray body and side buttons to the blood-red rubber grips is carefully crafted to be a true item of beauty. Players can further customize the mouse using exclusive Dota 2 themed illumination modes that can shift according to player preference.

EXCLUSIVE IN-GAME ITEM
A once divine weapon, now corrupted by the devouring darkness of its new master, this Radiance-inspired sword is a must-have for any Dota fan. The Hell's Glare for Doom has been exclusively designed and only available with purchase of the SteelSeries Rival: Dota 2 Edition Gaming Mouse.

The SteelSeries Rival Dota 2 Edition Gaming Mouse will be available for pre-order after the conclusion of The International 4 Dota 2 Tournament for $69.99 / €69.99 MSRP.

As if triple A games are the pinnacle of pc gaming.
Either way nobody if forcing you to buy this mouse just to play one game.

Not worth the money in my opinion. Ergonomical shape - may be not seen in the picture, but it's not symmetrical- not a con, just not for everyone. Sensor has a bug, when you move it too fast/as well as colourful mouse pads- same as Kinzu. SS engine is a huge resource hog in general. It has nice LEDs though. For 70 euros, I think there are way better options.

Fast food? After about 2000 hours of Dota 1 and 2 combined (6.5 years, with a 2 year break for LoL), I still got things to learn. Some other MOBA games are indeed watered down, but to call it the number one cause of the death of AAA gaming is a bit far-stretched imo.

The number one cause of the death of AAA gaming, is AAA gaming.

Indeed. Im looking at the Watch Dogs for example, and think how much more better was the game would have been if it would have a much better story and gameplay. The action is boring, repetitive, objectives are hilarious stupid and unrealistic, and so on.

I think we have finally distilled it down to it's minimalist elements.

But seriously, maybe if people would stop doing things like pre-ordering them by the effing millions, or buying them anyway after reviews state it's the same bullshit they do every time (especially at the beginning of a franchise like AC or W_D) maybe then we could talk. Buying their products and feeding the perpetual machine of repetitive shit->good game with same engine after they've had a few years to make what they should have in the first place->rerelease said second game until it becomes like the first in new packaging forever is the problem. Me, I'mma jump back into Shovel Knight...which isn't Dohtah or UBISOFT...iow, it's fun and somewhat unique.
