AOC reinforces MDL Disneyland® Paris Major within the scope of new partnership

Amsterdam, May 7th 2019 – AOC, a global leader in the gaming monitor market, officially kicked off their partnership with MDL Disneyland® Paris Major, the fourth Dota 2 Major of the Dota Pro Circuit 2018-2019 season. Taking place at Disneyland® Paris from May 4th to May 12th, 16 professional Dota 2 teams from all over the world are competing for a prize pool of $1,000,000 USD and a direct qualification spot for The International 2019 Dota 2 Championships. Thanks to AOC’s sponsorship, all teams are being supported by AOC’s G2590PX gaming monitors, featuring top-notch features such as 144 Hz, 1 ms response time and FreeSync.

Hosted by Mars Media and Disneyland® Paris, 16 renowned top-teams, including Dota 2 legends such as Team Liquid, OG, or Evil Geniuses, face off at Disney’s® Newport Bay Club and Disney® Event Arena in front of a 6,000-strong on-site crowd. As the teams were spread over four groups at the tournament, four teams each engage in best-of-three series to determine the two top and the two bottom teams, who then either advance to the upper or lower bracket in the playoffs. In the lower bracket, the eight lower teams must fight for their lives in a challenging best-of-one, while the teams in the upper bracket take on the other group winners in a best-of-three. After that, all matches, regardless of upper or lower bracket, are best-of-threes, except for the grand finals, which are played as a best-of-five series.

As Dota’s artistic comic look and its complex team fights require a display with great response time and refresh rate, picked for the purpose was the AOC G2590PX gaming monitor. It boasts a frameless TN panel with 24,5”, 16:9 Full HD (1920x1080 pixels), FreeSync support, 1 ms response time and high refresh rates of up to 144 Hz. The G2590PX demonstrates how a display can combine performance, style and affordability into one package while continuing to ensure a smooth, tear and stutter-free gameplay experience.

Secretlab

We started Secretlab to provide every computer user with a quality yet affordable chair. Our chairs are carefully and meticulously designed and made from only top-quality materials to keep you seated for long hours while remaining comfortable and healthy.
We began in 2014 after our founders, Ian and Alaric, two competitive StarCraft II gamers, experienced first-hand the rigour and strain on their backs and wrists from spending long periods in front of their computers.
Dissatisfied with the available options, we went on a mission to develop THE chair that could provide maximum comfort at a reasonable cost, and assembled a team experienced in many areas, such as craftsmanship, industrial design, and customer service.
In May 2015, our first Secretlab chair was launched, to great acclaim. We’ve not stopped.

On top of our high-quality chairs, we work hard to do right by users by maintaining only the best customer and aftercare services, and selling directly, so you don’t have to pay for retailers or distributors’ mark-ups.
In just two years, we upgraded the seating experiences of users in over 40 countries worldwide — such as the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Australia, Singapore, and regions such as Europe and South-east Asia. And we’re only getting started.
Our four product lines mean there is a chair for everyone: The THRONE, the OMEGA, the TITAN and the ultra-luxurious NAPA Series, upholstered in soft, supple Napa leather. We serve over hundreds of thousands of users—including professionals, gamers, production studios, businesses and enthusiasts.
Our goal? A Secretlab chair in front of every computer screen in the world, because you deserve the ultimate seating experience.
