A Message from Our CEO, Pat Wachendorf


Oct 11 2023

Dear Glorious Community,

I'd like to start by expressing our gratitude for your support. In 2014, Shazim Mohammad (Founder and Chief Visionary) discovered that gamers, like you, were not satisfied with the current peripheral landscape, so he set out to create a better option.  This started the journey of Glorious: to create premium-quality, innovative gaming gear with direct input from the gaming community. 

Having worked for a top gaming peripherals brand for almost a decade, I was already familiar with and impressed by the Glorious legacy (starting with the world’s first fully modular mechanical keyboard, the GMMK, then with the groundbreaking Model O).  I had the opportunity to meet Shazim, and we hit it off.  His vision, leadership, and dedication to understanding the needs of gamers stood out to me.  We decided to join forces, and we have been working hard to get Glorious ready for its next stage of growth

Quote from the CEO

We want to start sharing with you some of the things that define this next stage. Over a series of upcoming posts, we’ll dive into topics surrounding the future of Glorious, what we’ve learned along the way, and of course – hand the mic over to you for feedback. Your voice matters to us, and we want to do our part for transparency. But before getting into all the exciting things we have planned, we want to address a big topic of discussion: the status of the Forge.

Moving forward, we will be injecting the ethos of the Forge into our development process. We built the Forge to implement gamer feedback into our products and leverage group buys to better serve gaming enthusiasts.  However, the realities of this system left a lot to be desired. We want the best for our customers and our fans, so after a lot of reflection, we’ve decided to formally “close” the Forge.

Conversations about new products, improvements (both hardware and software), and ideas will continue to be carried out in the Forum. Forge participants are also encouraged to join the Guild for opportunities to take part in the product development process by beta testing unreleased products and getting early access to limited edition items. To check if you are eligible, login to your account and visit gloriousgaming.com/account to see your Guild Tracker.

Through these conversations and feedback from the community, Glorious will continue to create high-performance peripherals that disrupt the gaming industry.  We love well-built things, so we build things well.  And we’re just getting started.  

A Glorious new chapter is about to unfold, and we want you to be a part of it. Without giving too much away, let’s just say we’re about to unleash raw performance on some of the products that put us on the map. More on that soon, so stay tuned.

Thank you for your passion, your continuous feedback, and most of all, for your support!

Travis. G:

I love your products I currently have the Model D- I have smaller hands and it fits me perfectly.

Things I would like to see in the near future are:
-NONE RGB models of mice with 150hrs or more battery life
-More vibrant colour options
-Female gamer-themed items (My wife suggested this – a full white keyboard with lavender keycaps and RGB in all keyboard sizes. )


I am waiting for what’s coming next

Elias Kalua:

Over the past 3 years I have ordered 2 mice, a mousepad, and a custom keyboard. The keyboard and the mousepad have been really good to me with no problems. I have however, had a bunch of issues with the mice. Both of them were with the usb and not the wireless version. The model D worked good for a year and a half before it had issues with the connection. Randomly the mouse would stop working for a couple seconds and then come back on. I decided to purchase a model O, however the same issue happened even sooner in around 6 months. I have since switched to a new brand with better quality mice. I would love to see your future innovations and would like to even purchase the new mice as long as the quality is up to standard with no issues.

Thiago Furuyama:

Hyped for some new stuff! I’ve been super happy with Glorious ever since I heard and got hands on the Model O!

Jaafar Amine:

I really like glorious products, but if only you guys shipped to ivory Coast it would be nice, but still i order your products to france and ship it here a bit more expensive but it works. Also if you guys ever want an ambassador in ivory Coast i would be glad to take on the role!


Hello Glorious!
And thank you for such an attitude to your customer!
I like your product I’m using right now (the Mouse Model D). But the only thing makes me sad – this mouse has too loud clicks! I’d like to see such a significant product perfect! I want it very much!
Thank you!


keep up the good work

Douglas Aaron Martin:

Interested to know if what you mean by unleash the performance. Is this for existing products we already own or just for new products heading down the pipeline.


I’ll enjoy my model o pro for as long as possible 🫡🥲

Dagny Geronilla:

I’m on my third mouse now (O D and O wireless) and one keyboard. Looking forward to your coming innovations.
