Tt eSPORTS x Softball
THERON, a gaming mouse that lets you play like a pro!

December 2nd, 2011 - Taipei, Taiwan – Tt eSPORTS, the leading expert in professional e-sports gaming, is pleased to announce THERON gaming mouse, endorsed by Taiwanese professional e-sports player Zhan “Softball” Zhenyu. Inheriting from Tt eSPORTS commitment in e-sports community and the shared passion with other e-sports players, Tt eSPORTS invite pro-gamers to join product development specifically made for gamers. Aiming to create the best gaming experience, Tt eSPORTS vows to fulfill this mission for the community, and player Softball too pledges to co-create THERON with appreciation and dedication, showing to the world why THERON is the best choice for gamers.

Softball, or Zhenyu Zhan in Chinese (詹鎮宇), is no stranger to Starcraft II competition. Beginning as an amateur player in 2002, Softball slowly but surely built his repertoire as a solid and fundamental Terran. Finally realizing his dream of being a pro gamer, Softball signed with the Tt Apollos pro team in February of 2011. Quickly becoming one of the most famous pro gamers in Taiwan, Softball is regularly featured on live television through the Taiwan Esports League.

When asking Softball about his reflections on designing THERON and his career journey as professional e-sports player overall, Softball commented:

“There are times when you as a player face a mental block, and naturally you feel like quitting or at least taking a short break to regain focus. Sometimes your skills hit a ceiling and you need a fresh look at the game to begin breaking down that wall. I feel like this differentiates the good players and the great players however as self-doubt and disbelief are very normal for humans.” Softball continues, “I grow with Tt eSPORTS. As Tt eSPORTS fully committed to e-sports community and the way gaming product development is specifically made for pro-gamers, I found it incredible for a brand that spares no effort in investing players with 100% supports, and this, too, differentiates Tt eSPORTS from others.”

Softball has been the ambassador of Tt eSPORTS in Taiwan and Asian countries, where people recognize Softball as the invincible Emperor of Terran, always demonstrating gaming strategies that leave the opponent no room for escape. And Softball will continue to do so in his career, because of THERON and its 5600 DPI resolutions and 125/500/1000Hz polling rate switch cycle, acting as his right-hand man, shoulder-to-shoulder combating with Softball in each tournament. A natural-born strategist, Softball also needs THERON’s on-board memory which is capable of storing up to 45 Macro Keys within 5 game profiles, enough for Softball to conquer with style. Tt Apollos fans may also notice the lightening fast Action-per-Minute (APM) Softball has possess, and THERON allows both Softball and his fans to witness his unbelievably fast finger movement, by THERON’s 7 color-change lighting effects by depending the quickness of each command by Softball. He stresses, “Working with Tt eSPORTS to design a mouse that fit my needs as a professional RTS gamer, I made this weapon to give me a distinct advantage over my opponents. Because I require the highest Actions-Per-Minute (APM) to be successful, I needed to be sure the THERON mouse could handle the stress of intense gaming sessions. It’s fully customized to my own needs with my preferred DPI settings and distinct colors; so I not only perform well, I look good doing it. Precision, comfort and speed have all combined to give me an incredible tool to dispose of my enemies in a quick and easy fashion.”

Playing like a pro, THERON is your only option. Designed and co-created by Softball, Tt eSPORTS courtly invites you to witness the greatness of Softball and his THERON gaming mouse.
