Echo Esports, the defending champion from the Sanctum of Domination Race to World First, is teaming up with Secretlab as their official chair partner. Their players will be supported by Secretlab’s award-winning 2022 Series chairs at the upcoming Sepulcher of the First Ones Race to World First starting on March 8, which will be streamed live from RCADIA in Hamburg, Germany.
World of Warcraft is known for its arduous raids and the Race to World First is the pinnacle of skill and endurance as guilds all over the world compete to be the first to clear each new raid on Mythic difficulty. The previous race amassed over 8 million hours watched on Twitch in just 7 days, and Echo Esports came out top without a single player dying during the raid. Lasting upwards of 12 hours daily and over an entire week or more, there is no compromise when it comes to ensuring that Echo players are fully supported and comfortable throughout, eliminating any distractions from the raid.
Best known globally for equipping esports teams with tournament-grade chairs, Secretlab has outfitted global premier esports tournaments such as Dota 2’s The International, the League of Legends World Championship and the VALORANT Champions Tour. With ergonomic features engineered specifically to keep gamers comfortably supported over long hours of use, and backed by an independent Ergonomic Advisory Board whose members work regularly with esports professionals, Secretlab chairs are perfect for the Race to World First.
“Secretlab is a brand partner we’ve been eyeing since we formed Echo Esports — we share a love for gaming while holding ourselves to the highest standards of performance and excellence. We’ve tried out many different chairs in the past, but Secretlab chairs have really helped to eliminate the aching that our players usually get during long raids. With the long hours that we’re anticipating at the upcoming Race to World First, Secretlab was the obvious choice for the team,” said Rogerbrown, co-CEO of Echo Esports.
“Some of the best guilds that I was a part of were the ones where everyone shared a competitive spirit and banded together to conquer the most impossible feats, which often meant staying up all night to clear raids. Feeling uncomfortable could throw you completely off your game, and this is why Ian and I started Secretlab — to support the best at what they do at the highest level. The Race to World First brings back a lot of fond memories for us, and we’re looking forward to catching more epic plays from Echo Esports at the upcoming raid,” said Alaric Choo, co-founder and Chief Strategy Officer of Secretlab.
