Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
We are gaming competition site where enthusiasts of various games (League of Legends, DOTA, Starcraft 2, Hearthstone, Counterstrike, Street Fighter and several console games) can challenge each other be matched with others for real money competitions. In short, people stake cash on their gaming skill, and compete against others to take the pot.
Obviously, our target is the competitive gamer archetype, which usually means a male in his early 20s to early 30s.

Here is an image of what the final version of the site will look like. The images are placeholders for now, so don't put too much stock into them:
In general, competitive gamers and e-sport followers are extremely savvy about how gaming companies and sites present themselves, so a generic image (like a controller or joystick) is likely to elicit an eyeroll from them. We are very open to abstract imagery or clever logo designs that can be branded around. While we won't reject literal designs out of hand, they aren't preferred.
You can also incorporate an original drawing, icon or creature to play off the 'Goon' or 'monster' -- the o's could be eyes, etc.
Also important, we strongly favor logos that are vertically organized, so an image on top of our company name is the right starting point, we think.
