Other than that, nothing new, except Roccat put some stuff on their booth:

I vaguely tried out Roccat Kova mouse and Roccat Sense mousepad. Kova was removed from boxpack so that I can get a more hands on here’s how it felt. It was way too small for my hand but it had had couple of rubber grips which pretty much would feel “oily” especially if you have sweaty palms. The built is also a turnoff even compared to MX518+ Golathus oversize control edition that I use by default. Also I didn’t really like the mat at all. The rep did tell me that there was a bigger sized mouse and it was something Roccat’s team were using but there wasn’t anything I could get a hands on. Yeah sure, newer builts of mx518 has quality drops and the rubber coat just fades/peels away. Not really sure DPI has any significant boost in anyone’s skills but it all depends on the user and his skills. Credits for sure to Roccat that they are sponsoring teams and online dealers/distributors are very aggressive as far as sales is concerned so that’s about it.

Although I’ve seen couple of controllers that have been used by COD4 players:

The left is Cyber Snipa PC Gamepad 2 and second was Logitech G13. Judging by the screen, you can save game profiles and controller settings. Both had pretty good rubber Pad (note: Pad- not Rubber coats) which doesn’t seem to be prone to get oily in constant use. PC Gamepad 2’s controlls reminds me of Ideazon merc stealth’s dedicated keypad section. Logitech’s controller looks pretty interesting and most likely it gives you the liberty to configure the keys accordingly. Requires a certain level of basic skillset, but this looks an ideal choice if you’re into lan gaming as you don’t need to carry the entire board.

Great turnout, some DQs and the usual confusions but all in all everything was done nicely as everyone stayed up all night and putting the systems together. The Asus’ team, Anil Max, Yogesh Nagdev and I were putting up the system together, installing the OS+ Drivers+ game+ re-install (don’t ask)+ reinstallation+ ghosting all 22 hard drives and testing every hardware individually. Wasn’t really easy to bring all brand new 22 units of AMD 555BE+ Asus’ board+ Razer mouse+ keyboards+ mousepad and getting series of minor cuts when assembling it on Coolermaste 310- ended up nicknaming one of the Asus’ guys as “The Foxconn Chinese factory worker” for doing majority of the hardwork on his own. Good sponsorships from good companies and even better manpower is what made this event a success. Cheers to all 😉

  1. there are few girls on that pic…..there were actually girls standing on that event and even watching the tournament?????? Whoa can say with confidence that gaming tournament is not a gay event in India anymore :p. Give it a year or 2 we will see cheerleaders lollzzz. by the looks of it dsk has spend a lot of money on this tournament. I am surprised to see that you are the only person who was able to give a nice coverage. it will be nice if you can cover such events in the near future as no1 does such proper coverage at all. if such events are not highlighted then gaming will be liek stagnent water. this dsk event seems to be huge as some teams came from kolkata and delhi. i was not able to go because i have exams coming soon :(.

    Mindblasting coverage by the legend as usual :-D. since alienware was there, any chance of you reviewing them? i also feel that roccat is not a good product either.

    Jus saw this on Esports iNdia. DQs happen on DOTA for double participation, happened on fifa for abusing the opponent about his sister, happened on tekken for using a cheat code and some hack on cod4. all this happened for grabbign the first price that is high end equipment from roccat, lots of cash prize and a graphic card as someone claimed that there will be gfx cards given as a first prize by some volunteers but something else happened when prizes were given away so certain players tried to do whatever they can to get an upper egde. are there any clarification abotu the prizxes or did they give any prizes in the 1st place? dissapointed the fact that every indian tournament brags about the event and no clear information about the prize as its usually decided in the last momenz.

  3. edit: My bad I forgot to read the volunteers part.

  4. that logitech controller is delicious. do u even get it in india?price and availability check plz…

  5. didnt they say prizes “worth” Rs. 5 lakh 5 thousand?? Even if you total it up its not the same amount. 15 thousand given for a clan tournament of such epic proportions is strange. 15k is something given on a local even as a clan involves 5k. I am still curious to know what was Search and Destroy being put up in the first place.
