Hardware developer Velocilinx in Auburn Hills has announced a partnership with Team Renegades, an esports company in Detroit. The companies have launched a line of gaming PC products, and Velocilinx will be the peripheral sponsor of the Renegades and GameTime, the Renegades’ training facility in Auburn Hills.
Velocilinx launched its Warrior line of retail gaming products including tournament-ready keyboards, mice, and headsets. Built with long gaming sessions in mind, the products feature high-performance technology and ergonomic designs.
“We built our Warrior line to endure extreme gaming sessions while still maintaining peak performance,” says John Dimovski, CEO of Velocilinx. “We’re excited to be sponsoring the high-octane family of Renegades teams.”
Renegade teams have secured their places in the world of esports through Fortnite, Smite, Paladins, Rocket League, Smash, and iRacing competitions. Renegades’ Rocket League team earned a 6-1 league record and a top seed spot in RLCS Season 8 Worlds. The Renegades Smite team recently finished third during HRX at DreamHack Atlanta.
“Sponsorship with Velocilinx is a natural fit for the Renegades, and we are thrilled to partner with them,” says Jonas Jerebko, owner of the Renegades who was a power forward for the Golden State Warriors, Boston Celtics, and Detroit Pistons. “Their product resonates in the esports world, and they are from our backyard of Detroit.”
