About the Razer Destructor:
The Razer Destructor, named after the Gigantiops Destructor ant, is a premium
gaming-grade mousing surface. Coated in a highly reactive gunmetal finish,
gaming-grade optical mice can track up to 25% better on the Razer Destructor,
and gaming-grade laser mice can track up to 37% better on the Razer Destructor
when compared to other gaming-mousing surfaces which are designed specifically
for extremely precise movements. Concurrent with advancements made by Razer in
gaming-grade mousing sensor technology, the Razer Destructor benefits from the
extensive research and development done by Razer on optimizing mousing sensor
technology. The Razer Destructor has achieved this by offering a solution that
facilitates faster tracking speeds, and allows mousing sensors to achiever
higher inches per second ratings (IPS) before the mouse reaches its IPS “limit.”

Co-development with pro-gaming teams and their endorsement:
While developing the Razer Destructor, Razer worked closely with numerous world
championship professional gamers and teams specializing in a wide spectrum of
genres, including pro-gaming teams Fnatic, Evil Geniuses (EG) as well as Quake
phenomenon Zhibo “Jibo” Fan. Their collective input was invaluable for the
optimization of the Razer Destructor and it is now their officially recommended
gaming surface.

“The Razer Destructor offers tracking like no other,” says Harley “dsn” Orwall,
captain of Team Fnatic’s CounterStrike team. “Each shot I take is essentially
life or death, and Razer understands that. Razer firmly believes in our
abilities and that’s why our entire team pitched in to test out the Razer
Destructor.” With Harley at the helm of Fnatic’s celebrated Counter-Strike
squad, Fnatic has had an outstanding run since early 2006, securing no less than
four 1st placings in August 2007. The Fnatic Team deservedly won the "eSports
Team of the Year Award" in 2006 and are the current reigning CPL Champions. They
were also nominated for this year’s "Best Team of the Year" eSports Award.

“I’ve been testing out products with Razer for years now and it’s solely because
I believe in their ability to pump out the best gaming products on the market
today,” states Zhibo “Jibo” Fan. “While training for my matches, I would use
prototypes of the Razer Destructor and I’m proud to have given my opinions in
the development process.” Based in Moscow, Jibo enjoys celebrity status in the
Russian gaming community. He had a stellar year in 2006, dominating the CPL tour
in Quake 3 with two 1st placings and an overall 2nd in the Championship Finals.

“Razer has been in gaming technologies for years now and many of our players
have been using the Razer eXactMat since it first came out,” says Jesse
“Koorban” Ryan, EG’s World of Warcraft gamer. “We’re psyched to be involved in
testing on the Razer Destructor and we’re looking forward to using it in all of
our future matches.” Jesse snared the top spot at the North American 5 vs 5
Regionals and was 3rd at the World 5 vs 5 Championships. EG’s hot streak has
continued in recent times with 3rd place finishes at Blizzcon 2007 and WSVG
Toronto.

Quote from Razer’s president:
“Other gaming-grade surfaces today lack the ability to truly accommodate gaming
optical and laser sensors,” says Robert “Razerguy” Krakoff, president of Razer.
“The Razer Destructor is designed specifically for gaming mice. Where other
gaming surfaces fail, the Razer Destructor shines through and gives gaming mice
the ability to achieve the tracking ability that they are designed for.”
