Esports News – In the world of competitive gaming, the hardware that professionals use is a big factor. The right gear can mean the difference between a good game and a bad game. Ultimately, your skills aren’t enough to bring you on top if you always rely on basic gaming equipment. Most action video games are all about reflexes and accuracy, so you can’t afford delays.
Responding to that, this week’s episode of Tipify Gaming Equipment series features two gaming monitors for professional esports players and beginners to benefit from: Samsung U28E590D and Dell UltraSharp UP3218K. While the two models are on different classifications, we want emphasize that the quality of gaming equipment can never be determined by its price. So, we put these two side by side for you to be able to set apart your needs from your wants in terms of gaming.
This 4k, 28-inch monitor from Samsung is a 2015 best-seller. Professional gamers are very fond of this particular model because it displays sharper images and is less expensive than its counterparts that feature in-plane switching (IPS) or Vertical Alignment (VA) panels. Running alongside the 4k resolution are its outstanding specs: 1,000:1 Static Contrast Ratio, 170°/160° viewing angles, 1ms response rate, AMD FreeSync Technology, and 1 billion color support. It’s important to know that the combination of FreeSync and 4K resolution is designed to match refresh rates between your computer’s GPU and the monitor itself, allowing the two to synchronize smoothly and prevent lags or stutter. On top of this excellent synchronization, its lightning fast response rate of 1ms can deliver on-screen accurate movements based on mouse and console controls. Price-wise, the Samsung retails at around $400 USD.
In terms of visual specs, the Samsung U28E590D carries a solid package of high-grade materials. The monitor displays a matte glare reducing system that makes it possible to play graphic-heavy games in brightly lit and dark areas. The build boasts off a stunning matte black body framed by a narrow bezel with metallic rims. You can easily mount it on any wall without taking into consideration some problematic angles for comfortable gaming. More than that it can still hold its own in 2018.
This 8k, 32-inch monitor from Dell is ultimately aimed at professionals. If 4k is already crisp and clear, what more if your gaming monitor supports 8k? Aside from the resolution, the Dell UltraSharp UP3218K carries higher than average specs such as 1300:1 contrast ratio, 400 nits brightness, 60Hz refresh rate, 178°/178° viewing angles, Dell’s UltraSharp range, and 1.07 billion color support. The ultra-high resolution, along with the color handling of the monitor, makes all esports graphics look incredible. In most cases, the visual effect can reach 3D detail on display. It’s definitely a step up over other professional monitors. The Dell retails north of $4,000 USD, which is significantly steep for novice gamers, but does cover a broader range of features for those wanting to maximize the potential of particular titles.
In terms of build and finish, one can say that this particular Dell Monitor is one of the most professional-looking gaming equipment in the market. Its base and body are made of durable, brushed aluminum. Additionally, you can adjust the screen 20mm vertically and rotate it 90 degrees to switch between landscape and portrait orientation—a very useful feature for gamers who are always having a hard time finding the most comfortable gaming position.

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.
