Trick2G is an OG League of Legends streamer. He first began playing it around mid-2010 and then uploading YouTube videos for it in October 2010. As he became more familiar with the Championes, he started releasing MyWay Champion spotlights and tips that helped to boost his channel’s following. He occasionally even set new meta standards, as was the case with Nunu in June 2013 after someone released his ‘Broken Nunu Jungle’ onto Reddit. However, he is mainly known for jungling and especially for his Udyr mastery. Below, we have provided a list of equipment that comprises Trick2G’s gaming setup.
WHAT MOUSE DOES TRICK2G USE?
Trick2G’s mouse is a Razer DeathAdder Elite mouse. The DeathAdder Elite is an ergonomic, wireless RGB mouse that is designed for right- handed gamers. Its Focus+ optical senor offers a DPI range of anywhere between 1 to 16,000 which can be set on any mouse button (other than the clickers) through the Razer Synapse 3 software. The two DPI buttons located below the mouse have default DPI settings of 450, 900, 1800 and 3,500. The sensor also has a tracking speed can go up to 450 IPS with a 50G acceleration speed and resolution accuracy of 99.4%.
There are seven programable buttons which are set with Omron switches that are meant to last up to 50 million clicks. Its dimensions are 12.7 x 7 x 4.4cm (5 x 2.76 x 1.73”) with a weight of 105g (0.23lbs.) The braided fiber USM charging cable is 2.1m (7ft) long. It has system requirements of Windows 7 or higher, Mac OS X10.9 or higher, and is also compatible with Xbox One for basic use.
WHAT KEYBOARD DOES TRICK2G USE?
Trick2G uses a Razer BlackWidow Chroma V2 keyboard. Trick2g’s gaming setup includes the updated version of the 2010 Razer BlackWidow Chroma. It is a full-sized gaming keyboard with a non-detachable braided fiber cable. Although the base is constructed from plastic, it has metallic keycaps. They are set with RGB backlighting The F- and five M-keys can be recorded on-the-fly. Its dimensions are 48.4 x 24.68 x 4.2cm (19 x 9.71 x 1.22”) with the leatherette-padded detachable wrist-rest, and weighs 1.7kg (3.75lbs.)
It is available with Razer Switch options of either Green, Orange or Yellow, and he has chosen to go with the Green ‘Tactile and Clicky’ switches. These have an actuation point of 1.9±0.4mm, an 50G actuation force, 80 million keystroke lifespan and 1,000Hz ultrapolling. There is also an audio control strip located in the top right corner.
The number pad has a ten-key roll-over for anti-ghosting, and there are an additional five dedicated macro keys set in a column on the left-side of the keyboard. There is a 3.5mm combo port and USB passthrough port located on the right-side wall of the keyboard. It is compatible with Windows 7 or higher, as well as Mac OS X v10.8 – 10.11. It isn’t compatible with any consoles.
WHAT HEADSET DOES TRICK2G USE?
Trick2G uses Sennheiser HD 599 (Ivory) headphones. The Sennheiser HD 599s are wired headphones that have an open-back design to allow for a 7.1 surround sound experience. They are fitted with 38mm, 50-ohm transducer drivers that offer a frequency response range of between 12 – 38,500Hz, a harmonic distortion of <0.2% (1 kHz, 100 dB) and an SPL of 106dB.
There is replaceable velour padding on the ear cups, while the adjustable headband has a leatherette padding. They are wired and come with two detachable cable options of 1.2m and 3m. Their dimensions are 20.57 x 10.5 x 26cm (8.1 x 3.95 x 10.25”) and they weigh 250g (8.8oz).
WHAT MICROPHONE DOES TRICK2G USE?
Trick2G uses a Shure SM7B microphone. The Shure SM7B is among the more popular microphones and is also used by the likes of KingRichard, CohhCarnage and Nadeshot, to name a few. It is a dynamic microphone with a unidirectional polar pattern that helps to prevent background noise from filtering in, as does the removable external A7WS windscreen. It is also fitted with a built-in pop-filter to guard against plosive sounds, as well as internal air suspension shock isolation technology to guard against electronic audio interference from monitors and other electronic devices.
It has a frequency response range of 50- 20,000H, a sensitivity of -50dB and a nominal impedance of 150Ω. It doesn’t require phantom power but does still need an XLR cable and audio interface to connect to the recording device. If the cartridge wears down, it can be replaced with an RPM106 part.
WHAT WEBCAM DOES TRICK2G USE?
For his streaming setup Trick2G uses a Sony Alpha a6000 and a Sony Alpha a6500 camera. Both cameras are mirrorless DSLR cameras, with the a6500 being the third upgrade of the original model. Spec -wise, both have an ISO range of 100 – 25,600 that can be expanded up to 51,200, have a 3” tilting screen, have the potential for 11fps continuous shooting, built-in wireless internet, and a 24MP APS-C CMOS Sensor.
In terms of differences, the a6000’s dimensions are 120 x 67 x 45cm and it weighs 344g, whereas the a6500’s are 12 x 6.7 x 5.3cm with a weight of 453g and the a6000 can record videos at up to Full HD 1920 x 1080 at 24p or fast-paced action shots at 60p and 60i frame-rates, while the a6500s can record up to 4K UHD for a resolution of up to 3840 x 2160 with fast-paced capabilities of 120fps.
Furthermore, the a6500 has additional features that the a6000 doesn’t, such as being weather-sealed, having a 2,359k viewfinder and sensor-shift image stabilization capabilities, to name a few. Which leads us to the next obvious difference: the a6000’s base price is $548 (occasionally on sale $448), while the a6500 is $1,145.
These are obviously designed for professional photography and IRL video recording, rather than basic streaming. His choice of expensive pro-level cameras is especially interesting since he rarely chats at full screen. If you’re starting out, you might want to consider going for a standard plug-and-play webcam before investing a more expensive camera that is possibly unnecessary to your needs.
WHAT MIXER DOES TRICK2G USE?
Trick2G uses a TC Helicon GoXLR mixer. The GoXLR is a 4-channel mixer with RGB lighting. It can provide +48V of phantom power to one microphone and has 70dB of gain. It also has one TS/TRS/TRRS microphone jack and can only process one microphone and one headphone input at a time, making it suitable only for solo-recordings.
Each channel has its own dedicated slider for the four volume sliders for Mic, Chat, Music and System controls. Additionally, there are a variety of vocal effect knobs that can be used to create and alter effects such as Pitch Echo, Gender Bend, Reverb, Megaphone and Robot outputs. It is also capable of riffing on-the-fly samples.
