Razer Launches Competitive Gaming Ecosystem

Razer in partnership with Las Vegas-based Gaming-Grids, has launched the first phase launch of Razer Arena, a new competitive gaming ecosystem for everyone. The service will be powered by the voice chat gaming messenger, Razer Comms.

Razer Arena is a web-based platform that brings together competitive gaming tools typically reserved for professional-level gamers. With automatic match creation and reporting, tournament and match lobbies, match notifications, and more, Razer Arena provides a seamless experience without the hassle of uploading screenshots or replays. Razer Arena also allows match teammates and opponents to easily communicate.

In the first phase, users will be able to participate in daily challenge cups to get familiar with the tournament platform, as well as participate in tournaments produced by selected partners.

In the second phase, slated for March 2015, users will be able to host their own private tournaments. Successful Razer Arena tournaments may be featured alongside professionally organized events.

Razer Arena will feature:

  • Automatic match creation and reporting
  • Match-reminder notifications
  • In-game voice chat powered by Razer Comms
  • Chat lobbies for the most social and interactive gaming experience powered by Razer Comms
  • Anti-cheat engine to ensure fair play
  • Single elimination format
  • Custom competition creation and management with friends, schoolmates and colleagues - Coming March 2015

" Tournament platforms focus heavily on the professional gaming scene, leaving out the majority of gamers," says Min-Liang Tan, Razer co-founder and CEO. " That ends today with Razer Arena. Finally it's easy to find the best gamers in your school or your office. There are competitions for every skill level, from casual to pro. You decide how and with whom you compete."

Gaming Grids President and CEO Dana Garvey says: "We are very excited to partner with Razer on the Razer Arena platform. Razer's devotion to the gaming industry and e-Sports is once again demonstrated with this latest product."

Collegiate Star League Founder Duran Parsi says: "We're pretty excited to be able to give each of our universities the ability to run their own training competitions and qualifiers leading up to the season. Razer Arena provides both users and organizers an amazing platform to run competitions in the smoothest way possible."

At launch, Razer Arena will support the following titles:

  • Battlefield 4
  • Dota 2
  • Counterstrike: Global Offensive
