The Glorious Guarantee

To the Glorious Legion:

5 years after selling our first mousepad, one of our proudest achievements is that Glorious PC Gaming Race remains an entirely grassroots-grown company. From an initial personal investment of just $3,000, we managed to crawl our way to become one of the fastest growers in the entire PC gaming market. We’ve caught the industry off guard by refusing to do business with “mega-chain” retailers, taking new products off Amazon, turning down partnerships with some (toxic) big-name streamers, and generally avoiding anybody who might try to steer us astray from our founding principles. We’ve challenged competitors who take advantage of customers, by keeping our prices low and putting gamers over profits. But most importantly, we were able to do it without any outside financing or investors. It’s all been 100% through the support of passionate gamers and members of our community like you who believe in the mission. 

But we’re still relatively small fish in an ocean of sharks. Luckily, unlike many of our larger competitors, a major benefit to being a (still relatively) small, privately-owned gaming company is that we can run things how we want, and pivot quickly when necessary. We’re committed to our founding goal of challenging the industry to do right by gamers.  So over the past months, we’ve been taking some critical looks inward, discussing how we can keep pushing that bar to lead by example.

The current industry standard for warranty returns is that customers bear the cost of returning a defective product, or they must jump through hoops such as providing “Proof of Destruction” before a replacement is issued. Our own warranty procedures have evolved over the years but often have shared some of the cost burden with customers for claims on newly purchased products. But learning lessons from Model O/O-, we realize this doesn’t sit right with a lot of people. So effective today, we’ll be enacting some major changes to our RMA policies. The full details are summarized here, the main points are as follows:

  • For any product or part that may become defective within 180 days of delivery, we will offer a replacement - 100% free of charge (including return shipping if necessary). 
  • If any product or part becomes defective after 180 days of delivery (while still within the product’s warranty period), we will offer a free replacement, and you will only have to cover the shipping cost.

We have measures in place to prevent fraud or abuse of this system, but these new policies are intended to be as hassle-free for our customers as possible. We want to ensure it is known that we will always stand by the quality of our products. And we hope others take notice so this becomes a new industry standard.

Our newfound growth has introduced a new set of problems we never had to deal with in the past. From “Black Hat” SEO tactics spreading misinformation, social media trolls, and competitor-sponsored shill accounts - we’ve come to understand there are a lot of people with a vested interest in seeing this project fail. But we’re standing our ground, showing them toxicity & greed have no place in gaming. We will always have your back for sticking with us. And as we grow, we will continue to look critically at ourselves and make positive improvements every step of the way. 

Thank you for your support. Let’s see how high this bar can go.

I got my model D last year and a new replacement cable today. When I was changing the cable, the plastic pivoting the left click broke. Is it possible to get a housing replacement?

Hello there! Hope you’re having a nice day. I just recieved my Glorious Model O a few months ago. Within 2 days it began sqeaking. That was tolerable, but then it got worse. To the point where every single time I click the right click button on my Glorious Model O, it squeaks. I’d really appreciate a replacement. I also don’t want to risk ruining it by using lube to fix the squeaks. All in all, I love this mouse but this squeak is really disturbingly annoying.

I bought my mouse somewhat recently (couple of months ago) And at first it was good but then after a week it had a squeak sometime in the right mouse button and it got worse and worse and now my mouse wheel doesn’t even work. Don’t get me wrong this is amazing but it has some serious flaws.

The left mouse button switch on my glorious model o- is broken. When i single click no matter what the debounce time is, it sometimes doubleclicks. Also when i hold my left mouse button in a specific spot, mouse starts clicking 10 cps, or when i hold my left mouse button for more than 2 seconds, it also starts clicking around 6 cps on its own. I’m using the mouse for 2 months.

Aeson Ranspot:

Jacob:

Hello, i bought the model o like a week ago. On the first day it was normal and had a good time. But one the second day, my right click started to squeak, and everyday i would hear a very annoying squeak. I would like to know how i can fix it without damaging the mouse so i can just have a good time with the mouse as i do not want to send it back and get a new one because it will take a long time.

Thank you.

I don’t remember the date I bought this but I was referred by a friend that is STILL using the mouse today after about a year, unfortunately, I did not have such a good run like my friend, about a week after using it all of the sudden bam! the mouse just started disconnecting and reconnecting, I tried a lot of things. I tried downloading software, testing the problem on different computers, and then I gave up. I really like the mouse feel so much that I am using it right now but if I literally move the mouse too hard it was a disconnect and then reconnect, I am very disappointed Glorious.

I was using the mouse that my brother got me for my birthday (December 26th) for up until today when I dropped it while playing. The drop was a light drop from around 6 inches high. I broke the left click and the scroll wheel. The left click I fixed by pushing hard on it but my scroll wheel is still broken. Its is gripping on somewhere and makes it hard to move.

Zanfar:

I got my child a model d for Christmas and now he can’t use the left click properly due to it randomly clicking whenever it wants to. I’ve attempted multiple times to fix it with the help of google but to no avail, it is simply broken.

Nazmi:

I got the model O pink(which might i say looks fire asf) and up until recently the buttons feel like it’s harder to push in than before. I got it back at the end of November 2020.

Gerish Tandang:

Recently bought the White matte Model O. It’s a lovely mouse to use and really high quality but after a week the right button stopped working I bought it on Amazon and I would like to request another mouse.

Hi, I received my model o wireless about two days ago and have been using it with perfect use, no issues found, until today. Tried starting up my pc and the software automatically started saying that my mouse had an update, but wouldn’t allow me to click download, or anything for that matter, couldn’t even click off the software to close the app or restart pc. Had to start my computer up with my old mouse plugged in just to get it to work, and now my left click just doesn’t even register, but my right click will. It hasn’t even been 48 hours and I’m already having issues with this mouse, as if I wasn’t already having doubts before buying it. Bad look.

Friku:

Hello I would like to replace the mouse because its buttons move a little. More left button but right button recently started. There is a strange noise when the left button moves. I have mice from December 6th.

Sebastian Paulson:

I wouldn’t like to falsely send in a mouse with no big issue, therefore I’m asking.
My main problem is that after using my mouse for one month with almost daily use for around 2 hours a day I’ve noticed that the mouse wheel sometimes stops scrolling/will scroll but nothing happens, and while It Is like that It also gets harder to scroll. In the start I thought It was all normal But after some research and seeing the guarantee I’ve decided to ask.
Thanks for your time!, Sebastian

When I saw the reviews for the glorious model o and I bought it and got it. When I just got it out of the box the scroll wheel and the right click button was squeaking too.

Adam Madrane:

Hello! I got my Glorious Model O Wireless Tuesday the 9th of March and two days later the scroll wheel would start to squeak. Also, my right mouse button is squeaky since day 2 with the MOW. The right-click feels off compared to the left one. Would like a replacement if possible.

N3rveOnTwitch:

I got my model O for my birthday in January. (I play a lot of Minecraft and the mouse came highly recommended to me) I would not highly recommend it. I’ve had it for around 2 months, and the scroll wheel stops registering all the time, and the RMB squeaks sometimes. Otherwise this mouse is great. Id like to know if I could get a working replacement.

Novak:

I bought the wrong size mouse. I bought the glorious model o- instead of the glorious model o, I want to know if I can replace my brand new o- for an o. Along with this the mouse feels like i have to drag it across my mouse pad, its not that its heavy. But the mouse feet are just not good at keeping the mouse light, and fast when gaming.

Psyclone:

Ive had my Glorious Model D mouse for a little bit over a year (I got it in December 2019 I believe). The back-Side button has seemingly popped out and become loose, and most clicks with the button won’t register anymore.

Isaac Liedtke:
