Esports News – Competitive gaming requires you to be competitive, hence the name. That’s why you need proper equipment that can last through all types of gameplay—you need a gaming mouse fashioned for fast-paced games and is built to be more precise and accurate.
This week on Tipify Gaming Equipment series, we dive into two latest mice products from one Danish manufacturer: SteelSeries. The company is known to produce the best gaming peripherals, accessories, and gaming surfaces every year. They have focused on reinventing stylish headsets last year, but it’s time for their gaming mice to shine. Meet the SteelSeries Rival 600 and SteelSeries Sensei 310, and answer the question: what features can these two gaming mice offer?
Many gamers claim that SteelSeries Rival 600 is the best gaming mice under $80 USD. It retails from $75- 78 USD on Amazon, and it can already give you the performance of the generation. The mouse is equipped with TrueMove 3 sensor and a secondary sensor to halt your cursor from drifting away every time you intentionally or accidentally lift the mouse off your mousepad. The sensors also offer a maximum sensitivity of 12,000 counts-per-inch (CPI) and a one-to-one tracking at up to 3, 500 CPI—it can reach to smaller movements with accurate precision and sensitivity.
Nothing else comes close to the Rival 600 when it comes to dual sensor systems but aesthetically speaking, the mouse showcases a two-tone look comparable to the previous versions of the Rival series. Though it’s bigger than most gaming mice today, it introduces a whole new level of RGB spectrum, rubber finish, and a customizable weigh system.
One of the best gaming mice that can balance price and performance is the SteelSeries Sensei 310. Retailing at just under $60 USD on Amazon and Newegg, this iconic and cult-favorite gaming mouse lasted for a decade with occasional updates. The redeveloped 2018 edition of Sensei 310 has its own CPU, new sensor, and bigger click lifespan. Similar to the Rival 600, it also has a TrueMove 3 optical sensor with a maximum sensitivity of 12,000 CPI and one-to-one tracking at up to 3,500 CPI. The main catch is its additional advanced jitter reduction that smooths out any tiny micro-movement from your hands. However, do not expect the mouse to have a sensor calibration support.
Design-wise, the Sensei 310 shows off a modern design of faux chromed and anodized finishes yore. The rubber on the edges of the previous versions is now replaced with silicone padding to give you more comfort when gripping too hard or too light.

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.
