Raidiant is a newly created initiative from New Meta Entertainment, parent company of storied esports organization, Dignitas. Raidiant serves as a content and events platform for women interested in starting their careers in the esports industry. The Raidiant.gg website provides a community for marginalized genders to meet and engage with other like-minded individuals and access valuable resources. In the past year, Raidiant operated two of the most watched Women's esports tournaments in history. In July 2021 , Raidiant operated one of Riot Games' VCT Game Changers events, where over 30,000 concurrent viewers tuned in. In February 2022 , Raidiant ran the first Raidiant Rocket League Series tournament, breaking multiple records including the highest prize pool for a Women's Rocket League event, most participants and largest viewership, with 27,000+ viewers concurrently tuning in.

"We're extremely excited to announce this partnership with Raidiant," says Zack Fabi , co-founder at Vanta Leagues. "Our hope is that through this partnership we can demonstrate to young gamers that esports is for everyone and we can really emphasize some of the amazing things women in this space are already accomplishing. Helping young gamers see that representation in a tangible way can be super powerful and we're excited to work with Raidiant to provide some of those opportunities to kids in the gaming space."

"As a twenty year veteran in the esports space, development programs for youth esports always felt like a pipe dream back when I was a competitor and I couldn't be happier that what seemed so impossible is now a reality," says Heather Garozzo , co-Founder and VP of Events and Community for Raidiant, "We're proud to bring our expertise in the women in gaming space to Vanta Leagues in hopes of inspiring the next generation of gamers through a structured, safe environment for young gamers."

These organizations will collaborate to expand access to esports for marginalized genders who may otherwise not have the chance to participate in organized esports leagues. The offerings will take place on Vanta's kid safe (COPPA compliant) digital esports platform and will include access to their STEM.org accredited coaching curriculum.

The VALORANT camp will begin on May 30th , and the Rocket League camp will kick off on June 6th .

JSAUX has been all the rage in the world of steam deck gaming recently, and rightly so.

JSAUX Steam Deck Accessories

The renowned digital accessories brand rolled out its steam deck docking station in June and became an instant hit amongst steam deck users around the globe.

Following the delay in the launch JSAUX ' s new accessory, the Steam Official Dock – the first third-party docking station made specifically for the steam deck – attracted attention and captured the imagination of many worldwide.

The all-new steam deck offers users multiple customisable and flexible options. Equipped with a desktop mode, the steam deck transforms into a PC gaming by connecting to a monitor or TV.

The docking station also acts as a stand for the steam deck, allowing gamers to optimise their playing experience, functionality, and aesthetics by playing while standing on a table.

Priced at $39.99 , the steam deck docking station is an affordable accessory for users, adding to its functional appeal. Furthermore, with plans for the second batch of products to start shipping globally by the end of June, steam deck gamers can expect to get their hands on their own docking station if they haven ' t already.

With a USB-C male and female and HDMI capabilities, the steam deck allows a stunning power input of 100W and output of 4K60Hz and supports high-intensity data transfers of up to 10Gbps. The advanced steam deck accessory further improves the user experience with a USB-A*2 that supports data transmission of up to 480Mbps and a power supply of 5V/1A. For more connectivity options, it also has an RJ45 option to support 100/ 10M networks.

This isn ' t the first JSAUX product that has captured the attention and enthusiasm of steam deck players worldwide. The brand offers an exclusive range of high-tech and comfort accessories to pair with the steam deck and provide an ultimate gaming experience. Going by the motto, " Connect More, Power More," JSAUX is changing the game with its accessories.

Like the docking stations, JSAUX protective standing case has also added comfort, convenience, and optimisation to steam deck gaming. Along with serving its core purpose of protecting the steam deck from dust and damage with high-quality TPU and PC material, the built-in stand allows users to place the device on any desk and continue gaming uninterrupted.

But that ' s not all. The protective standing case also boasts a reserve heat dissipation port, or in simple terms, a cool vent, that prevents the device from heating up during intense gameplay. Despite such improved features, the usability and gameplay remain as smooth as ever with the case's texture being incredibly adaptable for the skin and not affecting user control.

About JSAUX : JSAUX's range of steam deck accessories covers every area of the gaming experience ensuring users can keep their steam decks in perfect condition while maximising their gameplay performance. From screen glass and silicon cases to storage bags, 90° adapters, stand bases, and much more, the JSAUX collection has it all.

A brand built upon identifying customer needs and tailoring its products to fulfil them, JSAUX is much more than an electronics accessories supplier. Delivering power, enabling data transit, providing audio/video connectivity, and enhancing productivity, the company develops customer-centric solutions beyond what is available in the market.

Transforming its customers ' digital life with comfort, functionality, style, and performance is what drives the JSAUX brand!
