Esports News – The main function of the keyboard as a part of the gaming equipment in esports is to deliver the hotkeys, shortcuts, and commands you want your hero or champion to do. If the mouse is for tracking speed and precision, the keyboard is for translating key messages. Your best attack will depend on how fast you type and how fast they keyboard can communicate. To help you achieve victory and defeat your opponent, giant tech industries released the best gaming keyboards for competitive gaming in 2018. Listed below are the top 10 in the market with a central focus on interface and keys:
There are two types of keyboards: mechanical and membrane. The Razer Ornata combines the functionality of the two types in one wired-keyboard so you’ll have no problem choosing between the two. The full-color backlighting, shorter keys, and loud audible easily gives a complete gaming experience.
Creative Sound BlasterX Vanguard K08
Creative is a well-established brand in the industry, so expect that their new edition of Sound BlasterX will live up to the hype. The keys have shorter actuation point but their mechanical switch still function seamlessly. This only means that you can deliver faster commands in in-game actions.
G.Skill Ripjaws KM570
This features the design and performance of traditional, mechanical wired-keyboard but with the inclusion of Cherry MX switches, customizable RGB lightning and programmable keys. You are guaranteed to have more than 50 million keystrokes per switch, without sacrificing speed and accuracy.
HyperX Alloy Elite RGB
Also features Cherry MX switches, the new edition of HyperX Alloy is one of the best keyboards that provides comfortable and adjustable backlight. You have quick access buttons for brightness and other lightning effects in gaming mode. You can diffuse or limit the brightness for both outdoor and indoor gaming.
Razer Cynosa Chroma
Coming in number 5 and currently holds two spots this year is the brand Razer. Their wired-mechanical Cynosa Chroma is worth your money as it performs well for only $59. It is perfect for seasoned and new esports players since the keys and lighting are adjustable, and the mesh-membrane keys’ performance can already rival with high-end brands.
Corsair K95 RGB Platinum
A wired-mechanical keyboard fashioned for competitive gaming is what you need and that is Corsair K95 RGB Platinum. The 8 MB built-in storage memory of the keyboard enables ultra-fast translation speed when typing action commands, you can always hit your enemy first before they even have a chance to shoot you. For durability and comfort, the hardware is built with military-grade aluminum finish.
HyperX Alloy Elite
Another one from HyperX is the Alloy Elite wired, frameless keyboard. Its customizable lighting effects compliment the titanium-colored keycaps. You’ll be fascinated with the aesthetic look it gives off every press you make. In addition to the actual hardware, you’ll have media keys, light bar, and palm rest for comfortable gaming.
Corsair K63 Wireless
Second best keyboard from the brand Corsair is the K63 Wireless. Among the top ten, this the only wireless hardware that made it to the list. The predecessors of K63 Wireless are all wired keyboards, but this one is an upgraded version of that old hardware and sports the new Cherry MX Red switches so expect a faster transfer of commands.
Razer BlackWidow Chroma V2
Razer might be our defending champion in the best gaming keyboards of 2018 since the BlackWidow Chroma V2 is its third entry. Whether Razer got the idea from the Avenger superhero or the actual Black Widow spider, the speed and performance of this keyboard are so fast you’ll be the one keeping up. It has mechanical switch keys and comfortable wrist rest that can make you last for hours in heavy gaming sessions.
Logitech G413 Carbon
Logitech develops the best mice and CPU in the gaming industry. But their new product, G413 Carbon keyboard, can deliver exemplary performance and can compete with the pricey ones in the market. It’s the most affordable and responsive keyboard on our list. The main edge of G413 Carbon is its 1.5mm actuation point and Romer-G mechanical switches.

When you first start out you’ll be tempted to try to bet as frequently as possible, don’t. Wait for matches with good odds where you or the predictors know the teams. Never force yourself to bet, bet on matches that you are confident in. You may go days or weeks without placing a bet, you’re not in a rush, wait for bets you are comfortable and confident in and profit should follow.
If there’s any uncertainty, don’t place a bet. Save your skins for another day. There will be plenty of other matches that you can bet on.
Betting is always risky, that’s unavoidable. But staying inside a ‘safe zone’ will help cover you off from some really silly bets. When starting out with a low inventory, large bets placed on matches with 80%+ odds aren’t going to return much in general (on lounge, even less due to the inconsistent returns) but you’re still risking a large amount of your inventory for very little.
Equally, odds below 30% sound very, very attractive with huge returns possible. But if you don’t know the teams or all the details, it’s very possible the team doesn’t stand any chance. If you think there might be a chance, reduce the size of the stake or consider an ICB.
Always bet with a percentage of your inventory. Think, what happens if you lose an ‘All in’ bet, do you stop betting for the rest of your life, or just get your wallet out and go again? You may think there’s no risk, however there is always risk. If you’re placing a high bet, stick to an absolute maximum of 20% of your betting inventory.
Always leave enough to bet another day.
If you’re feeling angry or frustrated, your judgement get’s very cloudy. You’ll make a stupid bet and lose. If you just lost a big bet or are on a losing streak, instead of trying to force a bet, you should take a step back, calm down and just take a break, come back refreshed with a fresh mindset.
Betting blind is a purely relying on luck, if the underdog odds are 30%, that definitely doesn’t mean the team has a 30% chance of winning. It just means 30% of the betting community chose that team. A late roster change could mean there’s zero chance for the team to win. Check in with our predictions to help give you some more background on the game.
Use the lounge odds tracker to predict the final odds as the start of the match get’s closer. If the odds are increasing/decreasing for the team you intend to bet on the return may not outweigh the risk anymore. A huge significant switch of odds at the last moment may mean that something shady is going on, mostly in very low tier games, or a sudden announcement, E.g standin may have occurred.
Bookies will put up their odds based on their own expectations, as the bets start coming in they'll tweak the odds to ensure it's still profitable for them. That early stage is key to getting an edge on the bookies.
As soon as you feel like you have to bet again to recoup loses, you’ll feel compelled to make bigger bets with bigger risks. This often starts an endless cycle driving your losses further and further. Instead, after a big loss, take a day off from betting (or a week if was really big). .Keep to the proper bet sizing based on the risk of the match no matter what. You are not in a race to win it back, just take it easy.
Do not blindly follow betting site odds and think that they are correct to the true odds. If a betting site has ‘Team A’ as a heavy favorite, it does not always mean that it’s an easy win for ‘Team A’.
SK beat Na’Vi… Na’Vi beat E-Frag. That means SK can beat E-Frag now, right? No.
There are many factors which contribute to the team winning a match, these factors such as player performance, map selection, strategy and tactics which may not apply to other teams.
