Zowie Announces EC eVo White and AM-FG

One of the most interesting things about e-Sports is that it is a competitive activity, which is not limited by a player’s physical capability. Players are able to compete against other players on response time, creativity and ability to perform in stressed situations. Nothing is given in electronic sports, as even the smallest impact can change the course of the game. This is one of the things that make electronic sports so interesting and intriguing to watch.

This is also why any player needs to be able to trust his equipment to perform at its best in any given situation. The most important factor in any game is the player, but he needs to be completely comfortable with the equipment he is using. We understand the importance and need for gamers to have the best possible environment when playing, so that they can focus purely on making the largest impact.

ZOWIE Announces HeatoN's EC-series of Mice

More than 12 months of extensive research and development. Testing of 7 different sensors using two different technologies. We present to you the ZOWIE EC-series, a new series of competitive gaming mice co-developed with the legendary Counter-Strike player, Emil 'HeatoN' Christensen. With the choice to develop a mouse with either optical or laser technology, surely ZOWIE and HeatoN has developed a high end laser mouse, using the newest technology available?

Wrong. If you expected us to develop a laser mouse using the newest technology with driver installation and complicated software, we are sorry to disappoint you. Only the best is good enough for us and our customers, unfortunately laser haven't been able to pass our extensive testing. Why is this? Well, the laser technology surely is new and innovative. It only has one problem, but for a gaming grade product, the problem is quite serious. Most gamers prefer cloth mouse pads today, when using a mouse on a cloth surface, the movements will destroy the structure of the fibers bit by bit and static electricity caused by the friction between mouse feet and cloth will cause particles to stick to the lens very easily. This happens for both optical and laser lens, but the laser lens is more sensitive, resulting in a very unstable tracking when particles are gathered at the lens. The optical lens is not as annoyed by the absorption of particles and will continue to function flawlessly, as it pretty much ignores the particles.
