Esports News – There are different types of gamers. Each one can be classified into various categories based on certain criteria, from their approach in gaming to what types of games they prefer. This classification is also in line with the gaming equipment each gamer use. It tells a lot about their personality.
This week on Tipify gaming equipment series, we feature the most exciting set of gaming keyboards in the market. Some may confirm that these are the coolest tech they’ve ever laid eyes on—with gimmicks and designs all over the place. If you’re a gamer who has an eye for creativity, let’s move towards the unconventional type of gaming and see what the Logitech Gaming G510 and Mad Catz Cyborg Strike 7 have prepared.
The $120 USD price tag of Logitech Gaming G510 will not scare you away because the look of the keyboard is enough to catch anyone’s attention. And besides, one should know that Logitech is a world-renowned company led by innovative product lines and designs. They care about the look of their products as much as they care about the components they’re made of and its performance.
This keyboard is definitely an upgrade for anyone looking past the $100 USD price range. It has a game panel LCD screen on top that updates players with real-time game stats and VoIP communication data without interrupting gameplay. As if a keyboard screen is not enough, Logitech added a custom-color RGB backlighting that allows users to assign a unique color to each profile, profile mode, and mode style to easily locate any key in the dark. Surprisingly, its great design matches the performance of the keys. 18 programmable G-keys can make any game fall to your commands as they can be configured up to 54 unique functions per game, including single key presses, complex macros, or intricate LUA scripts.
The only downside some gamers may encounter is the ever-updating game panel. It might not interrupt their actual gameplay, but it can distract them from playing in real-time.
It is already a given that gaming keyboards are complex compared to basic ones. This is due to the extra features crafted to give players a leg-up in the game. Mad Catz Cyborg Strike 7 is determined to do just that, but with more tricks under its sleeve.
The keyboard is packed with a touchscreen pad, a handful of detachable components, alternate keycaps, and exclusive software. The keyboards can be divided into two: The QWERTY section and the 10-key section. Even if it’s functioning as a whole or as a split keyboard, users can still access the touchscreen pad or the “V.E.N.O.M.” console to control the PC audio, switch all the programmable profiles, and return to the home screen instantly.
The only apparent reason if some gamers happen to dislike Mad Catz Cyborg Strike 7 is the number of channels they can explore. Sure, many find these setups interesting, but not all these channels will get much use. In addition, price-wise, the Mad Catz is miles away from the G510 at north of $500. However, its features do justify the price, especially for more serious gamers looking to purchase a feature-packed keyboard.

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.
