SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. — June 3, 2016
— Evil Geniuses (EG), a world-leading pro gaming team and new media agency, is pleased to announce its partnership with Scuf Gaming (SCUF), the inventors of paddles, hair triggers and global leader of professional customized gaming controllers.
"SCUF has been incredible to work with for as long as I can remember, you can tell they really care about their product and want to create the best gaming experience," says Eric "Snip3down"
Wrona. My old controller settings didn't allow me to jump or even sprint without taking my right thumb off the joystick, causing me to lose aim for a short time. With the added functionality on a SCUF controller, I was able to keep my controller settings the same and use the paddles to remove that issue, giving me more control and a better shot. I am very excited to have SCUF as the official partner of Evil Geniuses."
In a game where reaction time is essential to a team’s success, having the right equipment is paramount. SCUF controllers offer increased functionality needed to play video games like Halo at the highest level so EG is delighted to be working with SCUF. To celebrate this announcement, Scuf Gaming is offering a five (5) percent discount code off all products on their website, which can be redeemed by entering the code “EG” at checkout on http://www.scufgaming.com
Duncan Ironmonger, CEO & Founder Scuf Gaming, “EG are a huge contributor to the tremendous growth and success of eSports and with their commitment to competitive Gaming, it seemed a perfect time to concrete our partnership as the Controller Partner for Console and PC.
