21 new controller designs let fans represent hometown NBA 2K League teams

ATLANTA, June 21, 2019 — Scuf Gaming®, innovator and creator of high-performance gaming controllers, and the NBA 2K League are launching a collection of controllers to celebrate each of the 21 teams in the NBA 2K League.

Available for the high-performance SCUF Vantage controller, officially licensed for PlayStation 4, each NBA 2K League team controller features a unique design, including a faceplate emblazoned with one of the NBA 2K League team’s respective colors and logo. The Vantage boasts a suite of customizable features designed to allow gamers to use more of their hands and improve performance and comfort. SCUF controllers are relied upon in competition by many of the NBA 2K League's marquee professional players.

“This collection is a nod to the league’s fans, who are just as faithful and loyal as those that cheer on live basketball,” said Scuf Gaming founder and CEO Duncan Ironmonger. “Whether it’s the royal purple and gold of Lakers Gaming, the iconic blue and orange of Knicks Gaming, or any other team, fans can now represent their favorite team when they are gaming.”

The launch is an extension of Scuf Gaming’s ongoing sponsorship as the Official Gaming Controller of the NBA 2K League, and the launch of the official SCUF Vantage NBA2KL controller in March 2019.

Currently in its second season, the NBA 2K League is composed of affiliates of 21 NBA teams participating in an 18-week competitive campaign, culminating with the NBA 2K League Playoffs, which tip off Wednesday, July 24, and the NBA 2K League Finals on Saturday, Aug. 3. Hawks Talon GC, Nets GC, Lakers Gaming, and T-Wolves Gaming are new to the NBA 2K League this season.

“We’ve been a foundational partner with the NBA 2K League since its first season, supporting the league and providing players with high-performance equipment to play at the highest levels,” continued Ironmonger. “As the league grows, we’re excited to bring fans even closer to the action.”

The new SCUF Vantage NBA 2K League team collection (starting at $199.95) is now available in the US & Canada through Scuf Gaming’s website, and individual team faceplate kits ($29.95) will become available next week. For more information and to view photos of the collection, please visit

ATLANTA, November 26, 2019Scuf Gaming®, innovator and creator of high-performance gaming controllers, through its patent subsidiary, Ironburg Inventions, has expanded its global patent portfolio to 103, with the addition of 7 granted patents in Europe. 

Scuf Gaming’s latest patents expand the international coverage of its in-case trigger stop feature. Trigger stops significantly reduce the travel distance of the trigger. Since its invention in 2011, the trigger control system has become a necessity for shooter games, where every millisecond matters, because it allows for quicker aim and firing. 

With these new patents, Scuf Gaming now has 103 granted patents and designs in eleven different countries with an additional 55 pending patent applications.  

“Advanced trigger control features are at the core of console gameplay and have become a standard in competitive gaming. When we started redefining how controllers were used nearly a decade ago, reducing unnecessary trigger pull was one of our first steps.” said Duncan Ironmonger, CEO and Founder of Scuf Gaming. “By inventing trigger stops, we enabled faster and more efficient gameplay, particularly on shooter games. It is very exciting to reach 100 granted patents, and to do so with one of our very first inventions.”

The newest edition to the Battlefield franchise has arrived and brings with it all of the intense, massive, team-based FPS battles that we’ve come to know and love. SCUF recently had a chance to play through the Great War, and we've come up with a few pointers for people who want to SCUF up their game.


Paddle Configuration:

Like most FPS games, you can see a significant improvement in your Battlefield gameplay by equipping yourself with a SCUF Controller. Unlike most FPS games, Battlefield’s multiplayer can put you in the role of a number of different classes, each with a different kit to help your teammates or hinder your opponents. With that in mind, a SCUF controller would greatly benefit from the Electromagnetic Remapping feature, allowing you to reprogram your paddles on the fly to fit any situation on the battlefield. Beyond remapping the face buttons of AXYB or X/Square/Triangle/O, EMR can also remap left and right on the Dpad which controls your “Gadgets”, which include Defibrillators, Repair tools, Ammo Packs, and C4 to name a few. Those gadgets can literally be life or death during a multiplayer Battlefield game, and having them at your fingertips while still being able to move makes a huge difference.


A typical Battlefield 1 multiplayer map is anything but typical: one moment you could be parachuting off a clifftop while throwing a grenade at an unsuspecting tank below, and the next moment could have you at the front lines reviving teammates with your Defibrillator. Due to this, there is no “best” thumbstick configuration for Battlefield. So your best bet is to play with whatever thumbsticks you are most comfortable with. That idea is best used in conjunction with the SCUF Infinity series of controllers as they allow you to swap out thumbsticks very quickly with the SCUF Ring and Lock system. That being said, you can never go wrong with the SCUF recommended classic for FPS games: a SCUF Concave thumbstick on the left, and a SCUF Domed thumbstick on the right. The concave stick lets you dig in for pinpoint control of your movement while the rounded domed stick is perfect for quick camera movements that allow you to snap onto your next target in a flash.

Scuf Gaming partners with Porsche, Turn 10 Studios, and Microsoft Stores ahead of Forza Motorsport 7 launch

SCUF Forza Elite-controller-porsche-911gt2rs

ATLANTA, GA., September 26, 2017--SCUF Gaming, the innovator and creator of high performance game controllers, has teamed up with Porsche and Turn 10 Studios to design the limited edition SCUF FORZA ELITE controller in celebration of the October release of Forza Motorsport 7.

Inspired by the Porsche 911 GT2 RS, the cover car for Forza Motorsport 7, the SCUF FORZA ELITE’s front design is custom-crafted with an exclusive silver finish, red and black racing stripes, black carbon fiber accents, and the Forza logo. The luxurious controller handles are made of the same hand-stitched Alcantara leather found in the 911 Porsches.

“The SCUF FORZA ELITE features fine attention to detail, hand-built at our facilities in Atlanta where it is geared and tested for performance,” said Duncan Ironmonger, CEO and Co-Founder of SCUF Gaming. “In 2011, we challenged how controllers were built, creating a new market for high performance controllers by adding features to increase hand use and improve gameplay. This new limited edition controller continues that tradition. It’s a tribute to fans of Forza, Porsche, and SCUF. It could not have become a reality without these three premium brands coming together.”

This limited edition controller includes SCUF’s signature paddles, hair triggers, and other key functionality used by over 90% of professional gamers. The controller features the iconic Porsche Crest in a vivid color set and high quality metal fabrication SCUF paddles which transcend the back of the controller for optimal reach and use. Similar to racing car tires, SCUF ELITE premium thumbsticks offer gamers superior grip and comfort to achieve optimal driving performance in Forza Motorsport 7. A range of thumbsticks heights are included and can be customized to the gamer’s preference. Additional features include red volcano rings, SCUF Pro Grip handles, a custom case, certificate of authenticity, and replacement controller parts.

“In 2015, we worked with Microsoft to help bring our innovative, patented products to more gamers and consumers,” continued Ironmonger. “We are excited to continue working with Microsoft ahead of one of the most anticipated Xbox game launches this year.”

As part of SCUF’s licensing deal with Microsoft to become the exclusive 3rd party accessories partner for the Xbox Elite Wireless Controller and through the partnership with Porsche, the limited edition SCUF FORZA ELITE controller is available for purchase in two options:

The Race to Prestige is still going strong, and Team SCUF is taking this opportunity to look back on some of our favorite moments of Races gone by.

With a futuristic setting and A-list actor Kevin Spacey lined up as its villain, Call Of Duty: Advanced Warfare rode its way into 2014 on an electronic wave of hype. The same high-stakes action of Call of Duty we’ve come to know and love, wrapped in a futuristic veneer, CoD: AW was an addition that had people talking. The game was about to get even faster and more varied, and The Race to Prestige would reflect that.

With a whole new set of techniques, weapons, and loadouts to experiment with, Ernest Le, Goldglove, Goldenboy, iiJERiiCHOii, and TmarTn took to their now-famous Gamertag of “Hashtag The Race” to raise money for the Call of Duty Endowment, and maybe earn some bragging rights along the way.

The stream began as it always had: with excitement and a small bit of anticipation for the grind that waited. As the hours passed, fatigue occasionally set in, but “Hashtag The Race” knew that their audience was looking for mayhem and hijinks, and delivered with flying colors. With new techniques and maps to learn, there were more than a few opportunities to show off, and there are a few that people still remember today, including Ernest Le’s insane 14 man akimbo killing spree….

And what kind of multi-day, sleep-deprived test of skill would be complete without attempting to consume an entire meal in one slurp? We’re not sure anyone will be able to forget iiJERiiCHOii attempting to down this horrifying “smoothie”. But when you’ve been playing for days straight, we suppose just about anything seems like a good idea…

[video width="1280" height="720" mp4=""][/video]

But in the end, it was all worth it. Five straight days of non-stop combat seems like a small price to pay for over $15,000 raised for the Call of Duty Endowment. And to top off the excitement, 2014 ushered in a Prestige winner in the form of DooM Clan’s “WeAreDooMClan” Gamertag. Ultimately, Hashtag The Race agreed that this was one of the best times they’d had during The Race.

But they were in store for some historic moments in 2015.
This weekend marks one of the most exciting events in the year of esports: MLG Anaheim! Scuf Gaming will be in California to get a look at all the biggest moments, glorious wins, and crushing defeats.
