The partnership will equip the pro gamers at EG with the latest display solutions from BenQ’s gaming-centric XL and RL series of monitors built specifically for eSports, and will further the team’s ability to travel the world competing in the most famed gaming tournaments. 

Recently featured in The New York Times and considered the “Yankees of video games,” Evil Geniuses represents more than thirty internationally known pro gamers – including three Canadians – across five different gaming titles:

  • StarCraft® ll: Heart of the Swarm™
  • Marvel vs. Capcom® 3
  • Dota 2™
  • World of WarCraft®: Mists of Pandaria™
  • League of Legends™

As part of the partnership, BenQ will work alongside famed pro gamers Clinton “Fear” Loomis, Stephen “Snoopeh” Ellis, Lee “Jaedong” Jae Dong, and others in furthering the development of the company’s award-winning line of gaming products.

Evil Geniuses’ Brandon Freytag commented, “We’re looking forward to our partnership with BenQ, which has become the leading pro gaming monitor brand worldwide. Having seen the monitors in action at the top global gaming tournaments, we’re impressed with the feature set they offer, delivering tremendous advantages for improving gameplay. Among the capabilities we really like are its Black eQualizer for greater visibility in dark areas, high contrast ratios that don’t strain the eyes, Smart Scaling to switch between screen sizes manually, and smooth refresh rates and fast response times, which greatly reduce the potential for error.”

BenQ has been actively involved in the gaming community and believes in the continuous exchange of ideas and collaboration with legendary gamers to optimize its expanding line of professional gaming monitors. Successful launches of the XL and RL gaming monitor series have drawn critical acclaim from gamers worldwide. Sophisticated features designed specifically for the serious gamer have made these units the official competition monitors for numerous top-level gaming events. In North America, these include tournaments by MLG, E-Sports Entertainment (ESEA), Electronic Sports League (ESL), TeSPA, and GIGABYTE™ eSports LAN (GESL), among others.

“At BenQ we’re dedicated to the gamer and our pro-inspired systems reflect that commitment,” said Bob Wudeck, Associate Vice President, Strategy and Business Development at BenQ America Corp. “We’re excited to be supporting Evil Geniuses and equipping their training houses around the globe with the latest BenQ gaming monitors. This collaboration will enable us to take gaming to higher levels of innovation and performance. We wish EG the very best of luck as they engage in key tournaments worldwide.”

BenQ is offering Evil Geniuses’ fans an opportunity to get their hands on the very same gaming monitors used by the pros. To purchase, gamers can access the BenQ Store and find the monitor optimized for their style and game.
