Fnatic, if you aren't aware, are a London based esports team and have many top players involved in some of the most competitive games around. They have many awards and championships under their belts and I have to thank their DOTA team for some amazing matches this year at the TI6 where they took a whopping $1.5m for 4th place. So it would be an understatement to say that they are among the biggest esports teams around.

So where do you go with an established brand? Well Fnatic launched an Indiegogo crowd funded campaign to create their own line of peripherals last year, and have been working to bring gamers a new line of products. Part of this plan included the takeover of Func, a brand that had built a great reputation for solid and reliable products. This takeover could be the start of something incredibly interesting due to the vast experience of the team as well as having access to in-house pro-testers from all walks of gaming life. I must confess, their mission statement is hard-hitting and to the point.

After 11 years of blood, sweat, and broken gear… we know what makes great Esports hardware. No flashy green lights will get you a Pentakill. No fan on a mouse will help you hit a headshot. Esports gear is about simplicity, comfort, and reliability - it’s exactly what you need to perform and nothing else. That's why we launched Fnatic Gear, professional grade equipment designed by one of the worlds best esports teams.

The current lineup of available gear is the Flick mouse, the Rush keyboard and a selection of mouse mats. Here we get to take a look at the Rush Pro gaming keyboard, which is largely a rebranded Func KB-460 with the Fnatic logo. It comes in a selection of CHERRY MX mechanical switches, built in memory for 5 profiles, features 2x USB pass-through ports and a Fnatic Gear mode/ game mode that enables macros and disables the Windows key for maximum convenience.
