Insider View – eSports Tournaments

Looking for equipment for your next esports tournament?   eTech Rentals has gaming technology  for rent?  Your next gaming event needs to have the BEST equipment, but should you rent or buy the equipment?  And what equipment do you need when renting gaming computers?

HOW TO CHOOSE YOUR GAMING EQUIPMENT

Here at eTech, we provide the 24/7 Service and the best equipment available.  With every gaming computer rental we go through these 4 steps we take to bring your Gaming Rental to the next level:

  1. Our eTechnicians that know how to set up an esport tournament discuss the event to discern what equipment will best fit their needs, while keeping their vision (and their budget!)  in mind.

Pro Tip:
We recommend the fastest refresh rate monitors available in order to have the most accurate response time, around 1ms.

  1. We take into account what kind of venue they will be hosting the gaming event in. Based on that, we gauge the type of infrastructure needed to make certain our equipment will work to its best capability.

Pro Tip: Large Display Monitors can be strategically set up to best connect the space, the competitors and the spectators.

  1. To ensure things run smooth we will usually do a site visit (if possible) at the venue to foolproof any roadblocks that may come up including WiFi, LAN, power and connectivity.

 Pro Tip:  Hi Speed WiFi and Ethernet connectivity is critical for a successful eSports Event.  Don’t just take the Venue’s word for it – we recommend you test your wifi upload and download speeds.

  1. 4. And of course, depending on the needs of the event will have either an onsite tech or be available for on-call assistance/tech support should any questions arise.

Pro Tip: Hire a Tech Rental Company that knows gaming events and esports tournaments that can be on call or on-site depending on the size and complexity of your tournament.

 

WHY RENT GAMING EQUIPMENT?

      • COST effective: Renting is cheaper than buying in general, but especially in the technology industry equipment gets dated fast. Rather than investing in equipment that’s just going to get old and outdated within a year, it makes sense to rent the equipment when you need it without worrying about if it’s up to date .. 
      • Let US take care of the hassle of inventory: If you do buy equipment, what comes along with that is having to keep track of it, properly storing it, cleaning it, and not to mention ensuring it’s properly set up and loaded with the correct software and/or programs. On a smaller scale this may be manageable, but for an event or tournament, it can be more work than it’s worth and take away from other things that need to be tended to at the event. Here at eTech, we have a full staff and trained technicians ready to take care of all that hassle for you. 
      • Test BEFORE you invest: Still considering buying your own equipment? Instead of paying a high amount for something you know about only in theory, if you rent it first, you will have hands on interaction and know exactly how it works before you purchase it. 
      • Need ONLY the best – now: If you need the best equipment only for a specific event, rent gaming equipment so you won’t worry about if it’s still the best for the next event. Why purchase something you’re only going to use once or twice before it’s outdated? 

DID YOU KNOW?

      • Did you know that most gaming tournaments MUST adhere to very strict regulations? Not only should equipment be consistent, but also the specs as well as settings should be consistent otherwise someone may have an unfair advantage or disadvantage.

When we rent to a gaming tournament, to ensure consistency, we prep the equipment to be across the board with the settings and specs. 

If there are ever special requests for more custom settings or spec list, we ALWAYS test prior to delivering to the client. This way we and our clients have full confidence that whatever the setup may be, that it is functional AND performs as required.
