Forget keyboards and headsets, this is what you’ll need to succeed in esports

Forget keyboards and headsets, this is what you’ll need to succeed in esports

For maximum immersion in the world of the game, comfort is required. After all, if you are constantly distracted by the inconvenience, it is impossible to fully enjoy the world of video games. In the past, few people thought about comfort during the game, especially if they were gathered by the company or the whole family …

The members of the group were located, as a rule, haphazardly. During the era of consoles, a very voluminous TV box with a kinescope was located on an equally heavy pedestal stand. Moving such an array was very difficult. In addition, very often the length of the wire from the joystick to the console was about half a meter, and it was impossible to reach a comfortable sofa or chair with comfort in principle. In an attempt to make the pastime a little more comfortable, pillows were used, which at that time replaced much more comfortable chairs. Although much more often, everyone just landed on the floor near the console.

Of course, everyone understands that the player holding the gamepad was not worried about comfort. In addition, the joystick itself was often made of cheap plastic, and therefore, after ten minutes of active play, he strove to slip out all the time. Children were allowed to play for about half an hour a day, and therefore the hook position was not too critical for them. But parents didn’t mind relieving stress after a hard day and playing a game, often playing for longer than 30 minutes. And naturally, many of them later faced the problem of “how now, in fact, to straighten out?”.

Years passed, and thin plasma panels replaced the huge TV boxes. Gamepads have gained wireless connectivity and it has become possible to sit on a far-standing sofa or chair. The game audience has expanded significantly, new devices for games and gamers themselves appear on the market all the time. And even for the pickiest players, comfort has become not just a must, but an integral part. In the modern market, there is a whole series of products that fall under the category of gaming chairs, they will now be discussed.

Chairs with increased comfort is not a throne for the player, but a great solution for everyone who spends a lot of time behind the monitor. Most of these seats are “mesh” and ergonomic with much finer adjustment of the backrest and height.

To better understand the real value of a good gaming chair we look at Ewinracing Knight Series.

Upholstery made of excellent material, head restraints, adjustment of all parts – this is not an exception at all, but rather an unshakable rule. Such a chair will be a true decoration not only for the gaming room, but also for the office, because it well emphasizes status.

The pricing policy here is versatile, which means that the solution can be chosen for any pocket. For luxury models, you still have to pay a substantial amount, but in this case you get the maximum level of comfort and some exoticism.

Even a real racer doesn’t shun such a chair, because it’s almost a real car seat. Everything here testifies to the automotive design – from the angle of the backrest to its shape. The backrest is conveniently adjustable , and it effectively helps to maintain a flat spine if it is folded back.

The armrest is also adjustable in height and this allows you to adjust the overall design to the growth of the gamer. On the base of the cross is a plastic pad for a more comfortable foot support. The chair is made of steel and leather.

This is an ideal chair for both professional and gamers just starting out . This model ideally combines functionality and increased comfort. High-quality materials, stunning ergonomics, a sloping edge of the seat that prevents squeezing of the arteries, convenient adjustment of the armrests and the five-arm “Flake” are ideal for users who sit in one place for a long time.

And the sturdy construction underlying the Ewin seat is capable of supporting up to 150 kg — more than other similar chairs on offer.

This high-quality leather chair is suitable for both work and leisure. Outwardly, it resembles seats mounted on cool cars. And its improved frame, the presence of a multifunctional adjusting mechanism and a dense foam filler provides comfort and ease of use.

Comfortable fit, quality material, ergonomic design allow gamers to maximize your focus on the gameplay and achieve amazing results. Value for money will also please buyers making it easily one of the best gaming chairs on the market currently.

The big question is, just how much do you want to invest in a chair? Spend more for higher quality or save some and get best value for your money?

There is no definite answer on this issue because for different categories there are completely different prices. You can buy a chair for $200 US dollars and be very surprised why for a seemingly ordinary chair anyone would pay as much as $500 or even more. The taste and color, as they say,  as well as in chairs, are different. What can be definitely said is that the choice of gaming chairs differs in the breadth of the assortment and an interesting model can be selected for almost any pocket and for any needs.

Remember that a good chair is not all. Taking care of your comfort and your body is just as important in the long run.

Vie.gg partners with SpeedGaming to sponsor and host even more tournaments

Vie.gg partners with SpeedGaming to sponsor and host even more tournaments

It’s another day and we have another speedrun racing announcement on the block! SpeedGaming was created by legendary speedrunner “Feasel” in 2015 as a way to give back to the speedrunning community, and since then has been host to a plethora of speedrun races on Twitch, and an ever-growing catalog of VODs on YouTube. Outside of GamesDoneQuick, the twice-annual live speedrun charity event, SpeedGaming is the largest and most consistent speedrunning group on Twitch.

SpeedGaming has been home to every important speedrun game across its six collective English Twitch channels, as well as a handful of broadcasts in other languages. SpeedGaming is truly a global speedrun authority, boasting nearly 13 million views on their main channel. We’re looking to help SpeedGaming continue to support the speedrunning community by sponsoring a pair of tournaments that they’ll be hosting to close out 2018.

Weekdays starting on November 26, we’ll be sponsoring and hosting SpeedGaming’s A Link To The Past / Super Metroid Combo Randomizer tournament races (say that three times fast…) on www.vie.gg/pools. Additionally, we’ll be sponsoring and hosting every match for the legendary Super Mario World tournament which will be played on weekends, starting on November 30.

You’ll be able to find a handful of additional matches and tournaments on the site too. You can catch the action across all six Twitch channels, as well as additional broadcasts in Spanish, French, and German.

We’re ready to see all of these incredibly hard-working speedrunners and racers take their craft to the next level and we spoke with Feasel to get his thoughts on the partnership:

SpeedGaming is proud to be partnering with Vie.gg to bring our viewers a new way of enjoying their favorite races. We look forward to a long collaboration that will help expand speedrunning and its communities, as well as grow the Vie.gg brand as a pioneer in this up-and-coming sport.

Races will start appearing on the Pools section of Vie.gg as soon as brackets are created on SpeedGaming. Check back a few days before the races begin.

We hope that you give a look at these speedrun races and see the similarities to your favorite esports. Maybe in a few years the two groups will be sitting at the same table. And we can’t wait.

Here’s how Apex Legends can remain relevant

Apex Legends quickly broke into the industry and for several weeks kept the leadership in the genre of battle royales. Now the game is gradually losing its audience — developers do not have time to fulfill the wishes of users, who find more and more reasons to return to Fortnite or PUBG.

Today we are happy to announce an industry first as we expand Vie.gg’s offerings from esports-exclusive betting to include betting on speedrunning races. If you’ve been on Twitch at any time in the start of a new year or during the summer, you’ve surely seen the monumental GamesDoneQuick marathons, which display, well, games done quickly.

Speedrunning, as it’s called, was thrust into the mainstream a few times a year to great applause. But the people beating these games in absurdly fast times do more than a couple events per year. They are practicing techniques, routing new ways to beat games, and oftentimes, racing each other.

Each speedrunner plays the game on their own setup, starting at the same time as their competitor; the player to beat the game or finish their goal is the winner! That’s where organizations like Global Speedrun Association (GSA) come in.

Global Speedrun Association hosts and administrates races on a broad variety of speedrun games, most notably Super Mario 64 and Super Mario Odyssey. Across their three Twitch channels, they have seen rapid growth as they look to push speedrunning from a twice-yearly event to a truly sustainable path. Much like how the esports scene was small and unestablished only 10 years ago, groups like GSA help raise the standard of production quality and push speedrunning forward.

We love speedrunners and we love what GSA is doing. And that’s why we want to partner with them.

Rounding out the end of 2018, esports betting platform Vie.gg will be sponsoring a prize pool for three tournaments that are run by GSA: Super Metroid: Any-%, Super Mario Odyssey: Any-%, and Super Mario 64: 70-Star. The tournaments will be run with their usual style and production value, with Vie.gg providing a platform for speedrunning fans to bet on the races.

We’ll be adding these tournaments to our pool betting platform, and updating them constantly as the tournaments progress. We know that esports fans and even professional players love speedrunners and we hope to help bridge the gap even closer.

So get your fill of esports betting now! Check back once brackets are ready (a couple days before November 23rd) and start getting your bets in on your favorite runners in Odyssey, Super Metroid, and Mario 64. We’ll be ready for you.
