A quality keyboard might not seem like the most important piece of esports gear, but it’s still a crucial component for playing just about every title. Shooters use, at the very least, a handful of keys for movement, and more complex genres like real-time strategy and MOBAs rely heavily on much of the keyboard. Plus, it’s one of the biggest and flashiest PC gaming accessories. It’s no wonder pro gamers want one that works well and looks good.

A robot meme based on video game news publication Destructoid’s logo. The robot is mainly used when a glitch, error or computerized sound is made on stream. It’s also used, however, to poke fun at people’s robotic tendencies. It was used quite heavily during Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s testimony before congress that was livestreamed on Twitch by The Washington Post. Twitch chat would spam Mr. Destructroid whenever Zuckerberg said something or reacted to a question.


As you might expect, esports pros need some seriously reliable hardware to do their best in the most demanding racing sims. The Thrustmaster TS-PC Racer Racing Wheel fits that bill. With paddle shifters, support for up to 1080 degrees of rotation and a powerful motor that lets you feel the car’s response, the only thing more realistic than this is actually hitting the track in real life.
Kappa is a grayscale photo of Josh DeSeno, a former Justin.tv employee. DeSeno had been working on the original chat client for Justin.tv when Kappa was added as an emote. This was not uncommon at the time as several Justin.tv employees had added various photos of their facial expressions—but DeSeno’s photo was much more popular than his peers’. He became the face of Twitch.
Conventional and virtual reality games are demanding more and more graphics power, which means even if you purchased a high-end computer graphics card for your PC a few years back, it's likely time for an upgrade. It’s possible to spend thousands of dollars on the latest high-resolution graphics cards, but Nvidia’s GTX 1080 sits at a sweet spot in the market, at just over $500. The GTX 1080 is also one of the least expensive graphics cards that can handle the latest 4K displays for gaming with reasonable frame rates.

Emoticon slot count: The total number of slots currently in use, over the total number of slots available. If you have empty slots available, then you may upload more emoticons. If you have no slots available or a negative count of slots available, your active subscriber total will need to increase before you can upload more emoticons. Negative slots can happen by the total subscriber count dropping below the tier for that amount of emoticon slots. When this happens, Partners do not lose emoticons, but cannot edit their emoticons.

4head is pretty self-explanatory when it comes to visuals. It’s an emote based on a photo of League of Legends’ streamer Cadburry’s widely grinning face. The emote started to pick up in 2015. It’s a pretty wholesome meme, that is mostly used to express a reaction to a joke being made. The reaction can either be seen as an earnest response or sarcastic.


But just when you thought you’d learned emoji, now you’ve got a whole new symbolic meme language to master. On Twitch.tv, the internet’s primary hub for video game streaming and esports videos, there’s a parallel set of icons and a very specific vocabulary that goes with them. If you’re new to Twitch, you probably have no idea what a “PogChamp” or a “Kappa” are, or whose faces represent them, but they’re such an ingrained part of the culture. that popular broadcasters often say them out loud while livestreaming. And even though Twitter doesn’t support Twitch emotes, people steeped in the culture will spell them out in tweets, too.

This unique hybrid design keeps the Ornata keyboard from being too “clicky” and loud like many mechanical keyboards (if you’re the type that finds that noise to be bothersome). The Razer Ornata isn’t a bad deal at its usual price tag of $100, but Razer Black Friday deals knock 30 percent off, bringing this unique hybrid mechanical/membrane keyboard down to just $70 on Amazon.
Once upon a time, people thought they’d be piloting flying cars by the year 2017. Sorry, mom and dad, that didn’t precisely work out. At least we have emoji, though, I guess? Over the past few years, those silly little pictographic symbols have become the international language of posting fire memes and keeping it 100. They can be used sincerely or ironically, an eggplant can be a penis, and you only need one character to spell out “ayy, lmao bruh!”
The emote was introduced in 2015, but didn’t pick up steam until 2016 thanks to the speedrunning community. GamesDoneQuick, a semiannual charity event that brings together top speed runners, used the emote to express their discomfort if something cringe-worthy happened during the speedrun or on stream. The emote continued to grow, and was eventually banned by GDQ organizers because of the bullying connotation.

Xbox and PC gamers can get the full feel of car racing with this force-feedback wheel, gearshift and pedal set from Logitech. (PlayStation 4 racers can check out the very similar Logitech G29 wheel.) The game navigation buttons are better integrated into the steering wheel, compared to Logitech’s older versions, while the black anodized metal centerpiece and the real leather steering wheel cover give it a sleek and refined racing look.
Emotes have their ups and downs. Some, like Kappa, are used to help people communicate with one another during incredible streaming moments while the chat moves at breakneck speeds. Other people may start using an innocuous emote designed around a popular streamer for insulting or harmful reasons. Being part of Twitch culture means tuning into emotes as they emerge and evolve. That’s easier said than done.
