Esports News – Casual and semi-professional gamers are likely to get attracted to high-end gaming equipment, regardless of the price. Surely, there’s something appealing about adding something to a gamer’s rig to enhance his battle station at home. Besides, investing in good quality and good looking gaming equipment can enhance your overall gaming experience.
On that premise, this week’s episode of Tipify Gaming Equipment series dwells on two top-of-the-line gaming keyboards in the market today: Corsair K70 RGB RapidFire and SteelSeries Apex M750 TKL. Read on below and see which of the two is worth your 100 bucks.
The RapidFire is part of Corsair K79 KGB’s keyboard line, and it’s one of their most expensive products, priced at $139.99 USD. The keyboard is part of Corsair’s line of products that are fully-equipped with esports features, especially the latest Cherry MX Speed keys. As a whole, the keyboard is packed with 8ms customizable response rate, 100% anti-ghosting, full key rollover, 45g actuation force, 1.2mm actuation distance, and 50m keystrokes. It will definitely let you strike with an unmatched combination of speed and precision. More than that, complex actions can be set for each individual key such as macros, shortcuts, timers, and media controls.
The RapidFire looks like a standard black gaming keyboard at first glance, but once you prep it up for gaming, its vibrant multi-color backlighting will surprise you. It supports 13 different lighting effects and 16.8 million colors including Spiral Rainbow, Rainbow Wave, Cyclon-like Visor, and Color Wave. You can even create an effect for the movement keys, assigning a specific color for each shortcut or movement.
Also priced at $139.99 USD is the SteelSeries Apex M750 TKL. Its main selling point? The Tenkeyless (TKL) feature. This means that the keyboard works great with small work areas as it has no number pad—a section that’s completely useless to esports gamers. The absence of numerical keyboard gave way to a lot of features such as Cherry MX mechanical switches, 100% anti-ghosting support, 45g actuation force, 2mm actuation point, and 50 million key presses. It will genuinely excel in any gaming genre and can make more room for mouse movements and other gaming equipment.
Looking at the built and finish of the keyboard, the solid Aircraft-grade anodized aluminum top frame definitely stands out. And within it, gamers can light up 16.7 million RGB Led-capable distinguishable colors. You can enable all sorts of active effects like Wave, Breathing, ColorShift, and Firework, as well as reactive effects like Fade, Hexagon, Ripple, and Runout. If you want other gaming equipments to match your style, the keyboard can perform a Prism synch to make all colors uniform.

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.
