The esports gaming industry has picked up a lot of steam over the past decade with Riot’s League of Legend’s World Championship series witnessing more fanfare and attendance than the Superbowl and many other esports tournaments happening at a grand scale. Competitive gaming has also brought numerous gadgets to the forefront, such as gaming keyboards, mouse, monitors, among others.
