Designed to work in unison, and created for Starcraft™ II, this Razer® hardware trifecta will give you the speed, command and precision necessary to dispatch your opponents whether they bring the military might of the Terran Dominion war machine, the deadly ferocity o the Zerg hive, or the advanced technology of the combined Protoss tribes.


What is APM?
APM stands for Action per Minute. It is a measure of how many clicks and key presses a gamer can do per minute with his mouse and keyboard.

Why is APM important?
APM is important because it measures your speed with which you're able to give out new commands. It is therefore a good indicator of the control over your game you have in terms of both micro and macromanagement.

What would be a standard APM?
For beginners an APM of around 40-60 is not uncommon. More experienced players will have between 100-150. Professional players have around 300 APM with some exceptions even exceeding that.

What is effective APM?
Effective APM or eAPM is a more accurate way of measuring APM, as it only counts those clicks/key presses that actually issue a command as opposed to standard APM, which counts every single click and key press.

How does the APM-Lighting System work?
The APM-Lighting System is part of all our StarCraft II Peripherals. StarCraft II measures your effective actions per minute (APM) in-game and our peripherals will draw that data and will change lighting accordingly. In addition to that it will also register any in-game alerts like "Base under attack" or "Unit Built" and each of the alerts can have individual lighting settings that will be reflected on your peripherals.
