Razer launches Razer Academy for eSports fans

eSports? e-Sports? Competitive gaming? Well whatever you call it, the PC hardware company Razer is ready to educate you on its happenings. Razer Academy has compiled a list of well-known names from the scene (like Latif!) with a promise to bring us "gaming shows, guides, game analysis, commentary, articles, interviews and documentaries." They cover StarCraft II to MOBA games to the fighting scene, though I find it odd that the only first-person shooter on there is Quake.

Many of the staff members have introductions up on the site already, and Toby Dawson (TobiWanKenobi) even has a Dota 2 video up (shown above). Imaginatively titled "LearnDOTA," he commentates on a match and explains what and why they do what they do. I must say, as a Dota 2 newbie, I actually took valid information away from his video. It's not as entry-level as I may have liked, but it serves its purpose nonetheless. 

Razer has always been a supporter of the competitive scene, and it seems like they just took it to the next level. I look forward to Razer Academy's growth, especially whatever the "gaming shows" end up being. Why don't we have a SportsCenter for eSports yet? Get on that, Razer Academy!
