KingGeorge is a retired professional Rainbow Siege Six streamer who has been part of the R6 scene since 2016 and is recognized for his insane shooting skills and reflexes, as well as his extensive map guides. His biggest tournament win to date was at the 2017 Six Invitational tournament for PC players, where he won $10,000 USD. He from competitive R6 retired in 2018, but continues to stream it full time on his Twitch channel. We take a look at KingGeorge’s setup for gaming and streaming.
It is also important to note that KingGeorge’s gaming setup is currently sponsored by Corsair, meaning that his choices were also limited to the range that were available for him to choose from. However, he is obviously keen to use equipment that will enhance his gameplay and allow him to maintain the upper hand during games.
KingGeorge uses a Corsair M55 Pro mouse. The Corsair M55 Pro is a wired, ambidextrous, RGB mouse that is lightweight and designed specifically for fps gaming. Its sensor has an adjustable DPI range of 200 – 12,400. It has a plastic body with rubber side grips that weighs around 3.04oz (86g).
The right and left click buttons work on Omron switches, which are meant to withstand up to 50 million clicks, as well as a textured, rubberized scroll wheel. There is also a DPI button located beneath the scroll wheel that allows for 5 pre-set levels. It also has eight built-on programable buttons with two located on each side above the rubber grips. All of these buttons that can be set or deactivated through Corsair’s iCue software. It comes with a braided USB cable that is 5.9ft (1.8m) long.
KingGeorge uses a Corsair MM350 cloth XL mousepad. KingGeorge uses the thick, anti-fray version of this mousepad that occupies a 930mm x 400mm (36. 6-inch x 15. 7-inch) area. The 5mm rubber underside is designed to prevent the mousepad from slipping.
It can be rolled up for storage or transportation purposes. As far as washing goes, there are mixed opinions as to whether its better to hand wash it or stick it in a washing machine, so it would be best to do some research before trying to clean it.
KingGeorge’s gaming setup includes a Corsair K70 MK.2 SE Special Edition keyboard. The Corsair K70 MK.2 Special Edition keyboard differs from the K70 that has white PBT keycaps on Cherry MX Rapidfire switches that attached to a silver anodized brushed aluminum frame. It also includes a detachable, cushioned wrist-rest. The PBT keycaps are removable, double-shot keycaps that are thicker than regular Corsair keycaps.
It is a full-sized keyboard that comes with additions media buttons as well as a responsive volume scroll wheel. It also features 8MB of storage for up to three profiles that can be set through Corsair’s iCue software. However only one can be stored directly on the keyboard. The underside of the keyboard features four rubber grips on its corners, as well as an x-shaped cable holder to prevent wires from getting in the way during gameplay.
KingGeorge uses a Corsair Virtuoso SE headset. The Corsair Virtuoso Special Edition RGB headset is wireless and closed-backed and is compatible with PC, Xbox One, PS4, Nintendo Switch, and mobile devices, among others. It offers 7.1 surround sound with 50mm drivers that offer a frequency range of between 20Hz – 40,000Hz, sensitivity of 109dB and an impedance of 32ohms at 2.5kHz. The fact that they are closed back means that the sound is trapped within the earcups in order to produce a sound-staging effect for a more immersive. At the same time, this also exerts higher pressure on the ear drum, so it is advisable to keep an eye on the audio volume when using these.
The battery can last up to 20 hours and the headset will continue to work while charging. They can pick up the audio for up to 60ft (~18.25m) away from the output device. The mic is detachable and while the adjustable headband and earcups are padded, many feel that they would be more comfortable if the padding were a little thicker.
KingGeorge uses a Blue Baby Bottle SL microphone. KingGeorge’s gaming setup incorporates a Blue Baby Bottle SL, which is a large-diaphragm condenser microphone with a sturdy full-metal body. The double mesh metal grill over the diaphragm helps to cancel out plosive sounds and incorporates a cardioid polar pattern. Therefore, it is most sensitive to sounds coming from directly in front of it, while sounds produced from behind it are muffled. However, although it uses a USB connector, it still requires +48V of phantom power to operate, thereby requiring an audio interface to mediate between the microphone and recording device.
As for specs, it has a frequency response rate of 20Hz – 20,000Hz, output impedance of 50ohm, sensitivity of 39.8 mV/Pa at 1 kHz and a dynamic range of 123.2dB. Additionally, it also has a built-in pad with which to activate both its 100Hz high-pass filter and -20dB pad. It also comes with a wooden storage box and metal shock mount.
KingGeorge uses a Logitech Brio webcam. The Logitech BRIO is a clip-on webcam that offers 4K Ultra HD recording quality. It needs to be set up through the software before use and offers the ability to toggle between a 65°, 78° and 90° field of vision. Furthermore, it also boasts an autofocus feature and the ability to zoom in up to 5 time, as well as RightLight 3 technology that automatically readjusts the lens to accommodate lighting changes.
KingGeorge uses a Mackie ProFXv2 8-channel mixer. The Mackie ProFXv2 8-channel mixer allows for 8 simultaneous line inputs and 4 Mackie Vita microphone pre-amps, thereby allowing for multiple audio inputs into a single device. Some other features include 16 sound effects such as delays, reverbs and choruses, 3-band EQ on all channels at 80 Hz, 2.5kHz or 12kHz, remote controlled FX mute via a footswitch and break switch mutes across all channels, among other features.
Therefore, this is useful for those who would like to host a podcast, band recording or similar with all participants in the same setting. It is capable of receiving input from XLR, USC and ¼-inch plugs.
