Esports News – For beginners, proper gaming equipment is necessary. But “decent” should also conform to the standard specs recommended by professional gamers since these would serve as the foundation of your gaming journey. Whether you want to start gaming for fun or you want to follow the path of the pros, there are basic equipment for esports that you should definitely want to try.
This week’s episode of Tipify Gaming Equipment series dwells on two gaming mice for new players who have intentions of exploring the world of competitive gaming. The best gear you can get your beginner hands on lists down the VicTsing MM057 and the Redragon Centrophorus M601.
This is a simple mouse that has everything you need. It gets the job done despite lacking expensive and unnecessary gimmicks most luxury mice offer. The VicTsing MM057 is only priced at $10 USD but carries 2 DPI buttons, 15-month long battery life, 2.4 G Wireless Transmission Technology, and 15M/50 ft. working distance. Each DPI button allows the user to easily switch among 5 DPI (4800/2000/1600/1200/800); the flashing light on the side of the mouse indicates which mode is active. As for the battery, the Auto Switch Off function will help users save energy since it switches the mouse off automatically when your PC is turned off or the receiver is disconnected.
Now let’s dwell on the mouse simplicity in terms of appearance. You have a variety of color options to choose from (blue, black, grey, silver, white, red, and pink), but the actual body of the mouse only carries the VicTsing logo. Regardless, the MMO57 is a compact, wireless mouse housed in an asymmetrical-shaped body. It has a plastic top finish and a rubberized grip running around the sides; there’s a thumb cradle on the left and a shy thumb rest on the back.
Redragon Centrophorus M601
One of the best mice when it comes to budget gaming peripherals is the Redragon Centrophorus M601. Surprisingly, it’s also one of the most-reviewed mice for beginners. Price at $11 USD, the mouse features a DPI adjustable from 800 to 32400, 6 programmable buttons with 5 memory profiles, 2000 CPI sensitivity, and 15g acceleration. It is best suitable for comfortable FPS/RPG and MOBA gaming. Unfortunately, the limited sensitivity of the mouse won’t allow users to play faster-paced games that rely on twitch actions and quick reflexes comfortably.
The mouse is not as plain as the VicTsing MM05, it features a red and black design with tribal symbols on the front. The actual body has a claw-grip type finish which is pretty suitable for hybrid and casual gaming. Additionally, It has finger rests on both sides which helps you move your thumb, ring, and pinky fingers easily when holding and sliding the mouse across the tracking surface.
