Carlsbad, Calif. – 25 th April, 2012  - Razer, one of the world’s pioneering supporters of e-Sports, in co-operation with TeamLiquid, elite StarCraft II pro-gaming team, is proud to announce its support of the much anticipated fourth season of the TeamLiquid StarLeague.

Since the game's release, Razer has been a staunch supporter of StarCraft II.  The World Cyber Games, Intel Extreme Masters and IGN Pro League are just some of the bigger e-Sports competitions to receive Razer's support, but the importance of supporting smaller, community driven events is equally important; especially those pioneered by Razer's own teams, such as FXOpen's Invitational series. As prominent members of the StarCraft II community, Razer is happy to assist teams in their efforts to support and grow their own community.

“Four years ago, Razer believed in us to run our first TSL tournament.” Says Ken Chen, Chief Operations Officer, TeamLiquid. “Without them, the TeamLiquid StarLeague would not be where it is today. We're very excited and thankful to work with them again, and we appreciate their consistent support of the TeamLiquid community and the Liquid team throughout the years."

The TeamLiquid Starleague brings together the best of both event styles, a community driven event that puts the needs of players and fans first, while still being able to incentivise participants with a sizable prize pool, and satisfy viewers with the production value that they've come to expect from world-class events. It invokes a great sense of pride to see something so well put together from one of Team Razer's own.

"At Razer, we understand the importance of supporting not just the teams, but also the event organisers, who provide players the opportunity to compete in front of a global audience," said Robert “RazerGuy” Krakoff, President, Razer USA. "The TeamLiquid Star League offers Razer the opportunity to support the players, teams, fans and event organisers with one agreement. It's utterly unique."

The TSL Season 3 was one of the first major community driven events in StarCraft II history and was by all accounts a colossal success. With Razer's support, we have full confidence that TeamLiquid will raise the bar for the fourth season.

About the TeamLiquid StarLeague

The TeamLiquid StarLeague is an international StarCraft tournament that started with StarCraft: Brood War and now features StarCraft II. The TSL is typically very community oriented, with news articles, player interaction, and fan support on TeamLiquid.net, the world's largest StarCraft II international community and news website. The tournament also features an open online qualifier system which provides a great opportunity for up-and-coming players to prove themselves against the world's best competition. In 2011, ThorZaIN defeated NaNiwa 4-3 in an memorable finals to win the TSL3.
