Scuf Gaming Partners with KILLERFISH eSport


Scuf Gaming is proud to announce its latest partnership with yet another top European gaming organisation, KILLERFISH eSport from Germany. Founded at the start of 2011, the organisation has seen rapid growth, particularly in the Call of Duty scene, where their players have represented Germany at the Call of Duty Championship, European and World Finals and FIFA scene, with the former Virtual Bundesliga Champion calling KILLERFISH his home. Scuf Gaming and KILLERFISH eSport will be jointly showcasing the SCUF Hybrid controllers at Gamescon at the end of August; the biggest electronics convention in the world that is open to the general public.

Scuf Gaming controllers offer players the edge by introducing improved ergonomics and new design features not included on a conventional controller. Scuf Gaming have also recently released the latest in our controller revolution; the SCUF Hybrid. The Hybrid takes the best of Xbox 360 and adds new features to further enhance your gaming experience, including a new shaped back re-engineered for paddle use, remappable buttons, adjustable trigger housing and improved grip.

Dennis Schmidt, CEO of KILLERFISH eSport say; “Scuf Gaming was a natural fit for Gfinity because SCUF controllers are used by over 80% of the worlds top Professional Gamers and these are the controllers everyone wants to use. SCUF have become the default controller of choice for First Person Shooters. We have all been impressed by the quality and innovation Scuf Gaming bought to the Pro Gaming market through the addition of their paddles and trigger mechanisms. Scuf Gaming are a huge supporter of the Pro Gaming scene and produce the highest quality products so it is no surprise that most teams attending are using SCUF controllers. We look forward to an exciting event and a fruitful ongoing partnership.”

Duncan Ironmonger, CEO & Co-Founder Scuf Gaming says; “Today marks another great day in the development of Scuf Gaming, partnering with one of Europe’s finest teams. We ventured into the German gaming scene in early 2012 so we are delighted to extend our collaboration with KILLERFISH; the top eSports organisation in Germany. We are also very excited to be showcased on their exhibition stand at Gamescom! We look forward to working with KILLERFISH both as an eSports entity and a business.”

BACKGROUND:– Until the SCUF was invented in 2010, gamers could only use compromising techniques like CLAW to play with more of their hand. Using back paddles, which mimic the front buttons, Scuf Gaming has made it possible to display more dexterity is a safe, ergonomic way. We understand the limitations of a normal controller for Pro -gamers who need to control over 20 functions in gameplay and using only 2 fingers and 2 thumbs is limiting at the Top level – one size can not fit all for the Elite 10%. It can restrict the advancement of play, the games and their enjoyment, hence why some Pro-players were forced to use techniques like CLAW; which can be very harmful to your hand with repetition. The paddles and trigger mechanisms that Scuf Gaming developed and patented allow each player to choose their preferred settings for gameplay and become the best gamer they can be.

SCUF controllers have become very well known in the Pro Gaming Community, especially after the most recent event, COD Championships in Los Angeles where 126 of the 128 Pro-players competing were using a SCUF Controller.
