PRESS RELEASE: Scuf Gaming partner with FaZe Clan and release the SCUF FaZe “Trickshotters” Controller – 5th May 2013
Scuf Gaming are delighted to partner with FaZe Clan and release the SCUF FaZe. Designed to help gamers display more hand dexterity and improve their gaming experience, SCUF Controllers are a perfect gaming accessory for Trickshotters, Pro Gamers and casual gamers alike. With clever features and optional extras, SCUF Controllers have become the Pro Gamers choice for Shooters and Sports Games and now Trickshotters are finding the SCUF controller a huge benefit to aid their gameplay, while reducing the risk of obtaining hand injuries caused by compromising actions like CLAW Grip.
FaZe Temperrr, Owner and Leader of FaZe Clan says – “We at FaZe are very excited to announce our partnership with SCUF Gaming, as we believe this is a product that will greatly improve the gameplay and experience for our players and fans alike. In the past, many of our players have used standard controllers with a CLAW grip for trickshotting purposes, however Scuf Gaming have innovated to allow us to perform these actions using the addition of up to 4 paddles on the back of the controller which allow for a far more comfortable gaming experience, and the ability to perform more complex moves. Over the past 9 months, we have all had extremely good experiences with SCUF controllers and could not give a higher recommendation to those trying to replicate what we do! We are extremely happy to be working with Scuf Gaming and are very excited to get our hands on the new SCUF FaZe.”
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 have made it possible to display more dexterity is a safe, ergonomic way. Scuf Gaming also offer features such as adjustable hair triggers, trigger stops, military grade SCUF Grip and optional domed or concave sticks. SCUF Controllers are legally approved for use at most major competitions to include MLG, EGL, WGL, Reflex, UMG, ESL, etc
Duncan Ironmonger (CEO & Co-Founder Scuf Gaming) says “We are delighted to be working with FaZe Clan to increase the awareness of SCUF Controllers for use in the trickshotting community. This is a community which will see huge benefits through using the SCUF Controller; from both hand safety and skill improvement perspectives. Trickshotters are great to watch and we are excited to see the results of how this community adopts the benefits of a SCUF Controller.
When we designed the SCUF, our focus was to reduce unnecessary latency in hand movement and allow experienced gamers to game for longer while using more of their hand in a safe and ergonomic way. We believe the paddles and adjustable hair triggers are a great advancement for Console Gaming and are ideal for trickshotters to display their skill and dexterity and pull off more exciting gameplays which in turn will increase audience interest!”
