While Wifi is much more convenient then a wired internet connection, wifi is far less reliable than a wired connection. Typically, wifi can max out at 600 Mbps while typical ethernet cables like CAT5 can reach speeds of 1000 Mbps. However, that’s just the theoretical limits. Generally a hardwired connection will deliver much faster speed, less interference and less latency than a wireless connection. Wifi suffers from signal interference due to many environmental factors like lightning or the sun. There are some common house hold items that also cause interference like microwave ovens, DC motors in food processors or hairdryers but most interference will come from your phone.
If you want to avoid RF interference from all the things I listed, increase your internet speed, decrease packet loss and decrease latency then you should try switching to a wired connection.
This tip is pretty obvious and provides a lot of benefits.
Number 4 – Kontrol freeks
Kontrol freeks are a performance enhancing thumbstick for your controller. Kontrol freeks raise thumbstick giving you more distance to move the stick which means a greater field of movement. Its this greater field of movement that allows you to be more accurate. It takes a few days to get used to however, one you do get used to them, you will be much more accurate. Because you’re not moving the thumbstick as much it means that you’ll get less resistance which intern means less stress on your hands. Its basic science that is used to increase your accuracy. I’ve been using control freeks since 2012 and if you take your FPS games seriously then you need to use control freeks. Also they force you to shift your hand up a little bit so if you want to learn to play claw then this would be a great time to learn. Kontrol freeks cost about $20 depending on what pair you want.
Number 3 – Keep a wishlist
I’m assuming that since your watching this video you’re always trying to improve your gaming setup. A great way to help way to help with this is to keep an amazon Wishlist of what you want to upgrade next. For example, the next thing I want to upgrade is my desk followed by getting a monitor stand followed by a 3rd monitor followed by a boom arm followed by sound proofing foam panels. Because I know what I want to upgrade next I can be on the look out for good deals on all of those items. Maybe I find a good deal on a boom arm so I buy that before my 3rd monitor. Knowledge is power especially when it comes to financial decisions so doing this little bit of prep work will help you make better decisions when the time is right.
Number 2 – Clean your setup
There are many studies that show having a clean area keeps you calm, more productive and gives you more self-confidence. You can take these benefits with you in game if just take a few minuets before you start your gaming session to take your old dishes and drinks to the kitchen. You don’t need to clean your monitors and keyboard or anything like that. Just clear your area from clutter. Admittedly I’m not the best at this. Right now on my desk I have 3 bowls, 1 plate a Tupperware container, two mikes hard lemonades, an old coffee and two bags of snacks. To be fair I just got done with a 14-hour Saturday gaming session.
Number 1- foot hammock
If you a sweaty boy like me and like to play at a desk but also spend a lot of time just chilling at your desk but also don’t have the most real estate at your setup then the foot hammock is for you. The foot hammock allows you to kick your feet up while not having some box down by your feet to rest your feet on. I hate having some box down there that I always have to kick and move out of the way just to have to move it back to the right spot when I want it.
If this sounds a little bit like you then I would recommend checking out foot hammocks on amazon. You can get them for less than $20.
