    Razer, the world leader in entertainment devices and software, in partnership with Wargaming, the leading free-to-play MMO developer and publisher, today announced a new line-up of gaming peripherals for World of Tanks, featuring a customized Razer DeathAdder mouse and a World of Tanks Razer Goliathus mouse mat.

    "We're hyped to be officially supporting one of the fastest-growing titles in all of eSports in time for the World of Tanks Grand Finals in Warsaw," says Min-Liang Tan, Razer co-founder, CEO and creative director. "Wargaming is one of the most prestigious game developers, and releasing these custom-made peripherals for the event is a huge boon for millions of World of Tanks players all over the world."

    The custom-designed Razer mouse will feature the well-known DeathAdder ergonomic design, replete with an aggressively orange illuminated World of Tanks logo. Virtual tank commanders will be able to pair the premium gaming device with a World of Tanks Razer Goliathus mouse mat, designed to provide the required surface for steady aim.

    The first 20,000 units of both products include in-game bonus codes for World of Tanks, featuring the exclusive Pz. Kpfw. IV Hydraulic Tank, only available to World of Tanks Razer DeathAdder users.

    "Razer has the same attitude toward perfection that we strive for at Wargaming," says Victor Kislyi, Wargaming CEO. "We aim to create the most realistic and engaging gaming experience, and Razer builds cutting-edge gaming devices for that purpose. When we decided to create dedicated peripherals for World of Tanks, we knew that Razer would be the perfect partner. We couldn't be happier with the outcome."

    Razer also sponsors Odem Mortis and SIMP Gaming. The two tank squads coming to the Wargaming.net League Grand Finals prove time and again that success on the field of battle requires skill and the perfect gear for every situation.

    Razer's dead.
    As far as I am concerned anyways.
    Been DEAD for a good while now (or may as well be/should be).
    IMO, this is all IMO... they produce garbage, junk, inferior stuff and it's been so documented online it's not even funny anymore.
    And they don't stand behind their junk.
    And they DO sneaky things like try to force you to connect to their ummm... cloud. Why?
    Devious to say the least.
    Before you jump all over me, remember, it's MY opinion, just sharing it.
    You mad bro?
     
    Yorgos says thanks.

    Sooooo many people have been suckered into buying so many mice/keyboards for the "in game of the month" and now they got so many keyboards they are never gonna use again. LEL.

    I meant is they wouldn't want to play with an older game (in particular a dated sequel that novody plays anymore) a few games back from an fps) themed keyboard like battlefield 2 or whatever. It would just be weird.

    Actually yes. :) You are entitled an opinion only if you can argue on a certain topic. So far, you've only thrown blind rage and little to no proof. No argumentative chain or critical thinking, I beg to differ about Razer. Don't get me wrong I am NOT a fan. I actually am appalled by some of their practices, but they do have some amazing stuff out there. I could give you a few examples:

    - Razer Kabuto- the only 1.8mm portable mouse mat (for about 11-13 pounds or so) with such nice properties and the option to put between the screen and the laptop keyboard. Please, please please show me something that comes even close to this, when we talk about portable mouse mats, because I have scanned wide and I couldn't find one. (closest thing SteelSeries QcK Mini- 2mm)

    - Switchblade- apart from the fact its used to assign your WoW and LoL shortcuts, if they release it on the open as a touchpad, it's a heaven's gift for right handed people to have a mouse replacing the numpad (which then can be moved)

    - Razer boost- what's wrong with that piece of software? I've seen people, not particularly tech savvy used it successfully to boost their gaming experience. No I don't use it, but its definitely not that bad.

    - Project Fiona- well, yeah a gaming tablet, so? It's a pretty nifty piece of equipment to be honest. It definitely has its applications.

    - Blade- series laptops- Impressive power in about 2kg of single-piece casted aluminum shell.

    - Project Christine...etc...etc

    All I am saying is they have a bright side too, and it shines a lot. Yes, they have horrific branding, yes they have some crappy quality, but dead? Seriously? When is the last time Asus presented an innovative pre-build system branded as their own? How about Gigabyte?- brix?

    Razer Deathadder have never disappointed me, my 3.5G 4 years old still going strong still like new used it everyday for 4 years, Now upgraded to a 2013 Deathadder this year, had it for just over 2 months now no problems very much impressed with the improvements over the 3.5G.

    For me still the best mouse on the market. regardless of how retarded the razer cloud is. I don't like the fact that its forced upon its clients but meh. So is every other piece of software forced upon us for constant internet con.

    Razer has many qualities and also many weakness.

    For people who disappointed by Razer : Razer is junk, Razer is dead, where's the innovation, etc.
    For people who find Razer products suit them : Razer is not that bad, Razer is good, Razer is innovative, etc

    I learn that lately people like to throw 'opinion' with extreme tone whether positive or negative. In my opinion, obscuring their real judgement.

    The designs of those products in the OP are way over the top. That mat would have looked great without all the "splotches" and just the tank. Do not get me wrong, I love my Destructor mat but it has been the only Razer product that has lasted me long enough to be worth its premium price.
