It looks very nice ! Working frequency is high brightness is high in HD standard but nothing more is said than the curvature is 1.5 m which is wonderful and not mentioned, That there is no data on the resolution worries me and here I would very much like to see some more technical data. 240Hz is usually at lower resolutions and everything can dies here. OHo resolution is pretty good Ty fot the link .!

The middle one looks like an Asian harry potter while the one furthest to the left looks like a Markiplyer clone going through his late teen/early 20s stages. Furthest to the right looks like a Chinese actor called Aaron Kwok.

Im not sure about the other 2. Either way. pretty cringe but you gotta do what the sponsor tells you if you want that money.

::EDIT::

second from left. Norbita from Doraemon?

Before you google their salaries and deal agreements, you might want to sit down and have a cup of water nearby.

Yeah, its Faker. :rockout: $4.6 million USD a year from prizes alone. Not sure from his sponsorships.

I don't play League or SC2 anymore, but 400+ APM is no joke when an average competitive gamer pushes 300 or such.
