QPAD, the Swedish company famed for its premium gaming gear, today announced the release of episode 7 in the series of Tips & Tricks starring Emil "HeatoN" Christenssen. The latest episode is called - HeatoN Counter Strike Tips & Tricks - Tactic
For a team to be successful in this day and age it requires a solid strategy going in to each round of play. No matter how good a strategy is without tactical precision it is destined to fail. A well placed and perfectly timed flash bang or grenade can be the difference in a win or a loss. This tactical precision can be much easier to accomplish with the proper mouse, mousepad and headset. Practice is always a major factor in performance but without the proper gear tactical precision can be much more difficult to achieve.
