With aim on Counter-Strike : On pro gamers choice of gaming gear (English)
Abstract [en]

Counter-Strike has established itself as one of the most popular computer gaming phenomenon the last decade with a major online community and loyal fan base. Within the world of e-sports it has also become one of the most lucrative games to compete in. In order to keep up with the competition it has always been important to use the best hardware available for the task. This thesis is about these tools that gamers use to play - gaming gear - and how pro gamers train to increase their chances of winning. We investigate various factors that might be important in their choice of gaming gear when they play, and how they train to use these artifacts more efficiently to get maximum performance. We have interviewed eight pro gamers about their thoughts on gaming gear, and the results show that aim and the choice of mice are the most important ingredients to a successful round.

Inom e-sportvärlden har det också blivit bland det mest lukrativa spelet att tävla i. För att kunna hålla jämna steg med konkurrensen har det som spelare alltid vart viktigt att använda bästa möjliga hårdvara. Denna uppsats handlar om dessa verktyg spelare använder – gaming gear – och hur pro gamers tränar för att öka deras vinstchanser. Vi undersöker faktorer som kan vara viktiga för deras val av gaming gear, och hur de tränar för att använda dessa artefakter bättre. Vi har intervjuat åtta pro gamers om deras tankar kring detta, och resultaten visar att aim och deras val av möss är det viktigaste för en lyckad runda.
