  1. Here's a question for you: what had 20,984 visitors, a 120Gbit internet connection (yes, Gigabit...), with 13,010 PCs connected to it, and the World's best professional gamers in one place? The answer, as I'm sure you guessed, is Dreamhack Winter 2011, the World's biggest LAN event, which took place last month in Jönköping, Sweden. Corsair was there in full force, showing our awesome new Vengeance K90 and K60 gaming keyboards and Vengeance M60 and M90 laser mice, and in this blog we're going to recap the event and what we got up to. /corsairmedia/sys_master/productcontent/blog_corsair-at-dreamhack-winter-2011-Content-2.jpg This was actually the first time that Corsair has had a major presence at a LAN event in Europe, and we elected to start with the biggest LAN in the World. As the saying goes, Go BIG, or go home! I've already mentioned some of the stats, but even these incredible numbers don't go half-way to conveying the scale of Dreamhack. It is, quite simply, an awesome spectacle. From the rows and rows of BYO (Bring Your Own) PC gaming seats, to the exhibitor booths (especially Corsair's J), to the Dream Arenas where the eSports finals get played out in front of live audiences, Dreamhack is immense. If you're a gamer, it's as close to heaven on Earth as you're likely to find. As long as you don't mind sleeping face-down on your keyboard, that is... /corsairmedia/sys_master/productcontent/blog_corsair-at-dreamhack-winter-2011-Content-3.jpg To call Dreamhack a LAN is actually doing it a disservice. It's like the Glastonbury of gaming, a full-bore digital festival, with gaming at its heart. In addition to the 10,000+ BYO PC gamers, there are professional gaming tournaments with tens of thousands of dollars of prize money up for grabs, live bands on the main stage, and a creative demo scene for independent graphic and music artists to show their skills to the Dreamhack audience. And, last but not least, is the DreamExpo, where visitors can get hands on with some of the best gear and games from the World's biggest gaming brands, including EA and Corsair, and even some of the world's biggest brands full-stop, such as Coca Cola. And for those who liked what they saw, there was the option to buy these products at the DreamStore, run by Webhallen. Dreamhack was actually the first place in the World that anyone could buy the new Vengeance keyboards and mice, and it was great to see so many happy customers seizing the opportunity to be the first people to equip themselves with Vengeance gaming gear. /corsairmedia/sys_master/productcontent/blog_corsair-at-dreamhack-winter-2011-Content-4.jpg Corsair's activities at Dreamhack Winter 2011 were split into two parts. On our booth in the DreamExpo, we had a glistening row of eight Corsair Dream PCs, skilfully built by Scan Computers International in the UK. Each was equipped with a Corsair Vengeance 1500 headset and either a Vengeance K60 FPS keyboard and M60 laser mouse, or Vengeance K90 MMO keyboard and M90 laser mouse, and set up with the latest games for visitors to play, including Battlefield 3, StarCraft 2, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, Dota 2 and more. /corsairmedia/sys_master/productcontent/blog_corsair-at-dreamhack-winter-2011-Content-5.jpg These rigs were in use solidly for the full three days of the show (and the expo was open 12 hours a day, 10am-10pm!). At one point we even had a several rigs taken over by a group of friends who each installed League of Legends so they could play their own mini LAN. But, there was none more dedicated than our friend Filip, who loved our Dream PCs so much that he became a semi-permanent fixture, always sitting at the same machine with its K90 and M90 combo. If the Expo was open, he was there. So, at the end of the show, for being our most loyal customer, we gave Filip his favourite bit of kit — a Vengeance K90 MMO gaming keyboard. /corsairmedia/sys_master/productcontent/blog_corsair-at-dreamhack-winter-2011-Content-6.jpg For those who fancied a challenge, and the chance to win some top hardware, we also ran a 1on1 Counter-Strike shootout. Visitors were invited to throw down the gauntlet to Laura "LLo" Van Assche from BadgirlsClan, and the challenger with the highest score in each session (assuming they managed to beat her, of course) won a top prize. The shootout was extremely popular, and LLo played an incredible 263 matches over the course of the three days, losing very few in the process. Those skilful enough to win walked away with some top swag, including Vengeance 1500 headsets, Vengeance keyboards and Vengeance M60 mice. /corsairmedia/sys_master/productcontent/blog_corsair-at-dreamhack-winter-2011-Content-7.jpg More opportunities to win prizes came from our "Wheel of Fortune" prize wheel. The queues for the prize wheel would literally extend down the hall to the Star War: The Old Republic stand! The prizes ranged from a Corsair pen, all the way up to a Vengeance M60 mouse, with plenty of t-shirts and other goodies in-between. In fact, the t-shirts were one of the most popular prizes, along with our Vengeance hoodies. Also popular were our extremely rare and exclusive Dota2 BETA keycards. And this leads us on nicely to our other major event at Dreamhack Winter 2011 — the Corsair Vengeance Dota2 Championship. /corsairmedia/sys_master/productcontent/blog_corsair-at-dreamhack-winter-2011-Content-8.jpg The Corsair Vengeance Dota2 Championship was one of the key eSports events at Dreamhack, and was contested between 64 teams of five. Four top teams were invited to compete (Monkey Business, Fnatic, New French Order and BX3) with the rest having to secure a place through the BYOC tournament at Dreamhack. Excellent match commentary was provided on the live streams by renowned shoutcaster, TobiWanKenobi, and in total we had nearly 400,000 viewers on Twitch.tv during the course of the tournament. Some of those were watching on the Corsair booth, providing they could squeeze onto the seating area. /corsairmedia/sys_master/productcontent/blog_corsair-at-dreamhack-winter-2011-Content-9.jpg The Grand Final was between Fnatic and Wild Honey Badgers, a local Swedish team that had fought through the qualifiers to take their place in the final in the DreamArena Extreme, in front on an audience of 1,000 people. Wild Honey Badgers took the title in an exhilarating match, winning 50,000 SEK (around $7,200). I was on stage to announce the winners and present the cheques, which was a new experience for me. You can catch up on coverage of the tournament on sites such as GosuGamers, which covered it extensively. /corsairmedia/sys_master/productcontent/blog_corsair-at-dreamhack-winter-2011-Content-10.jpg As Dreamhack grew to a close on the third and final day, we decided to close the show in style with a huge competition and prize giveaway on our stage. To say we were mobbed (in a good way) is something of understatement, and it was amazing to see such enthusiasm, even if partly motivated by the prospect of some top prizes. /corsairmedia/sys_master/productcontent/blog_corsair-at-dreamhack-winter-2011-Content-11.jpg We loved our time at Dreamhack Winter 2011, and would like to thank everyone that stopped by the booth, and especially those who took advantage of our special offers in the DreamStore. It was a truly amazing event, and hopefully we'll be back for more next year!
  2. Last Wednesday we showed our new Vengeance Gaming lineup to the North American press in San Francisco. The next day we did the same thing in the UK with the European press. The feedback and coverage we got on our new Vengeance gaming mice and keyboards, as well as our new Vengeance gaming headsets was so incredible we decided to share the highlights with you in this special coverage round-up: AnandTech — Corsair Enters the Gaming Keyboard & Mouse Market with Vengeance, "I had some brief hands on time with all of the newly announced Vengeance peripherals, they all felt good but it'll take much longer than a short play session to really evaluate these things. I'm mostly curious to see how well these things do in the hands of hardcore gamers. Does Corsair have what it takes to pull customers away from the likes of Logitech, Microsoft and Razer?" /corsairmedia/sys_master/productcontent/blog_corsair-special-coverage-round-up-vengeance-gaming-Content-2.pngTweakTown — Corsair Pulls Off a One Shot, Double Kill , "There are a couple of meanings for the tag line of this news editorial. You might think since Corsair is launching both a gaming headphone and gaming keyboard / mouse line I'm talking about that. I'm not. Corsair has taken aim at both Logitech and Razor and in one quick shot taken both their heads off. The ultimate one shot double kill." /corsairmedia/sys_master/productcontent/blog_corsair-special-coverage-round-up-vengeance-gaming-Content-3.pngHexus — Corsair branches out, again, "Corsair has today announced its arrival in the world of PC input devices by unveiling a range of Vengeance-branded keyboards and mice. It is the latest in a long line of new product introductions for an American manufacturer who, while best known for its memory products and power supplies, has in recent years rapidly expanded its produce range to include a variety of high-performance products such as solid-state drives, computer chassis, CPU coolers and speakers." blog_corsair-special-coverage-round-up-vengeance-gaming-Content-4.png.ashxBright Side of News — Corsair Announces Full Line of Vengeance Gaming Peripherals, "Corsair has always been rooted in performance and their approach towards gaming has come purely as a result of the fact that most gamers demand the best performance. In the last year or two, Corsair has brought on people like Ruben Mookerjee to guide Corsair’s consumer component business in the right direction. Ruben was responsible for the worldwide product development of Logitech’s gaming peripherals division which was responsible for the well received G-series of keyboards, mice and headsets. These products were considered to be some of the best gaming products that the world had ever seen and up until now." /corsairmedia/sys_master/productcontent/blog_corsair-special-coverage-round-up-vengeance-gaming-Content-5.gifPC Gamer — Corsair gets into keyboards and mice, "The K90 MMO keyboard and K90 MMO mouse, along with the FPS friendly K60 and M60 keyboard and mouse have been developed under the auspices of Ruben Mookerjee, who in a previous incarnatiuon oversaw the launch of Logitech’s G-series of gear. Mookerjee takes his new role at Corsair seriously. For some people, he says, getting the right peripherals “is a matter of life or death. At Corsair, we say it’s more important than that." bit-tech — Corsair announces Vengeance gaming peripherals, "The most eye-catching products in the range are the pair of mechanical K90 and K60 keyboards. Both use Cherry red switches, which Corsair claims offer advantages over the more traditional Cherry black switches thanks to their reduced actuation force, which makes double tapping easier." Tom's Hardware — Corsair Launches New Line of PC Gaming Peripherals, "Breaking away from its typical hardware lineup, Corsair is dipping into the peripheral business with the upcoming release of two Vengeance gaming keyboard ("K") and laser mouse ("M") groups. These address two types of gamers: the FPS player (Vengeance K60 and M60) and the RTS player (Vengeance K90 and M90). All four are expected to hit store shelves sometime in October 2011, ranging from $69 to $129." /corsairmedia/sys_master/productcontent/blog_corsair-special-coverage-round-up-vengeance-gaming-Content-8.pngGizmodo — Corsair’s Vengeance K60 FPS Keyboard Is a Headshot-Making Monster, "Let's rush past the part where we acknowledge that grabbing a keyboard with easily-replaceable WASD and 1-6 keys and an ergonomic wrist rest is probably overkill and get right to the part where Corsair's K60 keyboard looks to be a pretty wonderful brand of nerdy." /corsairmedia/sys_master/productcontent/blog_corsair-special-coverage-round-up-vengeance-gaming-Content-9.jpgEverything USB — Corsair Vengeance K60 "Cherry MX Red" Keyboard for FPS Fans, "While it seems that a new gaming keyboard is released every day, very few actually peak our interest like the all new Corsair Vengeance K60 has. This is the for the simple fact that unlike many so called gaming keyboards which rely on mushroom dome keys (we are looking right at you Logitech), the Vengeance K60 takes a different approach and uses high quality Cherry MX mechanical switches. What this means is not only is your keyboard going to be able to take real pounding it will be able to take that level of abuse for years and years." /corsairmedia/sys_master/productcontent/blog_corsair-special-coverage-round-up-vengeance-gaming-Content-10.pngEngadet — Corsair Vengeance gaming keyboards, mice, and headsets hands-on (video), "Hold on to your seats gaming enthusiasts, Corsair just unleashed an onslaught of Vengeance series peripherals aimed at helping you dominate that Call of Duty marathon... and we got our hands on all of 'em. There's a lot to cover, so we'll get right to it."
