As mentioned before, BenQ added Manuel ‘Grubby’ Schenkhuizen, who is known not for speed of gameplay, but his smart and effective play style. He is a professional player in Warcraft III and StarCraft II, and has acquired plenty of titles in his 8 year run. He has become the only WC3 player to win both WCG and the ESWC titles. He has won over 28 titles and 6 championships in his career. With this sponsorship from BenQ, he is going to be getting their new monitor for RTS players, the RL2450HT. Also he is going to be able to give his input and advice on the next upcoming monitor. Grubby is a huge fan of this monitor because of its adjustable height feature that allows you to raise the monitor for added comfort. Grubby has been a part of some amazing teams like British 4Kings, MeetYourMakers, and Evil Geniuses.
BenQ and Team Dynamic have teamed up for the start of 2012 MLG Pro Circuit Spring Championship. With Team Dynamic being a professional team in Counter Strike: Source, BenQ has agreed to give them their monitors that are specialized for FPS the XL2420T. But since Team Dynamic also plays League of Legends they are getting the RL2450HT monitors. Philippe-Olivier “PEX” Crepin, long-time member of Dynamic said, “It is an honor for Team Dynamic to represent the leading PC monitor brand for gamers.” With everyone so excited to be with BenQ and their high quality monitors, let’s see what it takes to be to be praised has such a leader in the monitor world of gaming and if it equates to the e-Sports battlefield.
BenQ has two lines out that are receiving high praise, the RL2450HT and XL2420T. In the RL2450HT you are getting the adjustable stand for optimal gaming comfort with 60Hz refresh rate for smooth gaming. It is going to give you the ability to change your screen size from 17 to 24 inches but also give you improved visibility in darkened areas. If you are a fan of competitive gaming you will be able to get it at a discounted price, so keep your ears to the ground for special e-Sports discounts with this line. A big difference with the XL2420T is that you are going to be getting 120Hz refresh rate and a faster response time. They both offer 12 million to 1 contrast ratio. With all this power packed into their monitors, it sure makes sense why they take center stage at GIGABYTE eSports LAN in Pomona, California. Looks like BenQ American Corp. is rising to the top of the competitive gaming world.
