Packing a punch, like a real Terran.
The Marauder’s main features are its elevated (and well-spaced) keys, its on-the-fly macro recording capability (which is a now common feature in all high-end Razer keyboards), as well as the APM Lighting System. While the former two are pretty self-explanatory, the APM Lighting System is what I would like to delve into a little.
Speed, calculated decisions and aggressive performance is what StarCraft II’s competitive multiplayer is all about, and Actions per Minute is a very fundamental way to judge a player’s performance. The APM Lighting System basically changes the whole color of the Marauder keyboard depending on the player’s APM, changing colors in every 50 APM bracket increments. Obviously both color and bracket sizes can be increased as your performance increases, but for someone like me, seeing the Marauder go from yellow to orange to the occasional red was quite heartening.
Apart from APM Lighting system, the Marauder can also be customized to light up various colors (and flicker speeds) for other alerts within StarCraft II, further utilizing the full spectrum colors of the keyboard.
