Every gamer has their preferred computer configuration and in-game settings that they are most comfortable with.
These are usually customizable before any tournament or match, irrespective of the system you might find yourself on. But pro gamers also need specific gaming equipment and hardware if they are to perform at their best.
Ankit Panth says that he carries his own gaming mouse and professional headset whenever he goes to play a match or tournament because of ill experiences in the past. We asked him about the other hardware he uses at home to get the best out of his game and the configurations he sets up in the game to put himself at ease.
Below are Ankit Panth’s computer setup and his preferred in-game settings.

Every gamer has their own preference so it isn’t likely that Ankit’s preferred setup will work for everyone.
The best way to go about it is to tinker with your own computer and your settings till you find something that you find comfortable. Ankit suggests practicing with those settings to perfect them, and then avoid changing them over the long term so you develop your skills consistently with those settings.
It is a bespoke plan and one size does not fit all. But for those who are just starting out in the game and have no clue how to set up their computer, Ankit’s preferred settings may be the place to start and then make minor adjustments until you have what works best for you.
