If you're diving into the Overwatch wave, then you definitely aren't alone. Overwatch has consistently been one of the most talked about games in recent years.
And to perform with the best in the world, it can be beneficial to have the best equipment out there. In this case, we are talking about the best mouse for Overwatch.
We have personally tested dozens of different gaming mice while we play Overwatch, and have limited our list down to the top 3 gaming mice for playing Overwatch competitively.
9.8 / 10
Razer DeathAdder Elite
9.6 / 10
SteelSeries Rival 500
9.5 / 10
The Logitech G903 Lightspeed is the only wireless mouse on our list of best mouse for Overwatch, but it also may come down as the best mouse available for the past few years. This mouse checks all of the boxes and provides you with a flawless feel and performance, but you will have to be ready to spend a little bit of money.
I know the money aspect is a little scary for some, but if you are really serious about getting the best gaming equipment for playing Overwatch, then the G903 has to be at the top of your list. This mouse exceed all of my expectations while playing Overwatch and I even recommended it to all of my coworkers.
Why is the G903 so fantastic? Well one of the first things you'll notice is how lightweight it is after using it for the first time. The Logitech G903 only weighs 107 grams which is much lighter than competing brands, but that lightness really improves the performance of the mouse as a whole.
One thing that really benefits from the lightness of the mouse is Logitech's PMW-3366 sensor that is built into the mouse. As many of you know, when playing Overwatch you need a mouse that is incredibly sensitive and reactive to your movements, and I haven't found a mouse that is better than the G903.
The sensor will perform amazing whether you are using high or low CPI settings. I have spent hours and hours of play time with this mouse and I have never had any issues with cursor jittering or cursor acceleration problems.
The G903 has a very unique feature, which is the ability to put the thumb buttons on either side of the mouse so it becomes a true ambidextrous design. I have seen this with a few other gaming mice, but none have felt as sturdy or reliable as the G903.
The last talking point that I saved until the end was the amazing pivot bar click mechanism that Logitech included in the G903. It provides a click feel that is unlike any other mouse on the market, and makes it world class for Overwatch.
So if I had to pick one mouse to use for the rest of my life it would be the G903. It is simply the best mouse for Overwatch in 2019.
Razer DeathAdder Elite
If you are looking for an all around great gaming mouse that has been proven to be reliable, then the Razer DeathAdder Elite is a great choice. The sensor is one of the best on the market, but the shape & feel of the mouse is what makes it one of the best mouse for Overwatch in 2019.
Over the years, I have spent hundreds of hours using this mouse, whether it is playing Overwatch, editing video with Adobe Premiere, or just using social media and I can't remember a time where the DeathAdder Elite let me down. It's reliability is something that has always stood out to me.
The DeadAdder Elite comes with a 16,000 CPI sensor system, which is a PMW-3389 sensor that was developed in collaboration with Pixart and Logitech. By collaborating with these two huge companies, Razer was able to produce a great sensor for gaming, as well as for everyday use. No matter how hard you push it, the sensor will perform the same every single time.
What I really love about the Razer DeathAdder Elite is the size and shape of the mouse. It seems like the new trend with mice is to have as many buttons as possible, but for me that gives the mouse a clunky feel. But the DeathAdder Elite is sturdy and simple with two high performing thumb buttons on the side, and a comfortable overall feel.
If you are looking for the best mouse for Overwatch, or just a reliable mouse for extensive use, then the Razer DeathAdder Elite is an amazing choice.
SteelSeries Rival 500
If you are looking for a gaming mouse that offers as many customizations as possible, then the SteelSeries Rival 500 is your go to choice for finding the best gaming mouse for Overwatch.
Although some people will be overwhelmed by the 15 buttons and customizable design of the Rival 500, there will also be people who are incredibly excited for all the different features. If you are some one who likes a simple and easy to use design, I would go with one of the two gaming mouse that I listed above, but if you are looking for a gaming mouse that can be customized and has endless amounts of features then the SteelSeries Rival 500 is the mouse for you.
The Rival 500 is a very comfortable mouse, especially if you have big hands because it is slightly larger than your average mouse. But even if you have small hands, it should still feel comofrtable while using.
As previously stated, the feature that seperates the Rival 500 from other mice for Overwatch, is the fact that it has 15 buttons and every button can be programmed specifically for how you like it. There isn't another mouse on the market with this level customization.
At the end of the day, the SteelSeries Rival 500 is considered by some as the best mouse for Overwatch but it can also be too complicated if you aren't used to using a high performance gaming mouse.
Overwatch is one of the most popular games on the market right now, and it can be incredible beneficial to play with the best mouse. So I really hope I helped you find the best mouse for Overwatch for your playing style.

It seems like nearly everyday people are talking about a brand new collectible in the cryptocurrency space. But there aren’t many that I actually take seriously, but MLB Crypto definitely peaked my attention.
So I created this guide to be a tool to help all of my readers to get a better understanding of the new MLB Crypto as well as get a better idea of how to invest before the market booms. So let’s jump straight into it.
Introduced just a short time ago, MLB Crypto Baseball is one of the newest blockchain games in the crypto gaming industry. This may be one of the first projects to connect with the mainstream media and the average sports fan. I believe these crypto collectibles will have a very promising future.
MLB Crypto Baseball describes their project like this:
“MLB Crypto Baseball is a blockchain-based sports game that anyone can play using their very own crypto figures!
Every game of MLB Crypto Baseball is tied to a live MLB game in real time. Your figures will earn stats based on how well they perform in each MLB game. The better your teams and players perform in a live MLB game, the more your figures will improve.”
It seems like the Lucid Sight group has taken inspiration from fantasy sports as well as some of the original crypto collectibles such as CryptoKitties. But I believe their partnership with the MLB could be a point that separates them from all the other crypto gaming projects.
Here is a short video that Yahoo Finance did on the project.
I’m sure everyone has owned or at least heard of baseball cards before, so I believe that this project definitely has potential to become the “modern-day baseball card”.
As this blockchain game is still being developed, it is expected to grow and evolve throughout time, but as of now, the average baseball fan can log in and begin to collect digital figures that look just like different players in the MLB.
In order to get your first player, you can either find other players who are selling players, or you can even buy them directly from the marketplace that is run by the MLB Crypto group.
The price of players can be drastically different between different players. Some have been sold for as much as 16 ethereum (roughly $4,500 as of late August 2018) but then there are also many players who are much, much cheaper than that.
Here are a few MLB Crypto players who are currently for sale.
The marketplace uses an auction style similar to eBay. However, what makes it a little different is that MLB Crypto uses a “reverse auction”. Which means that the seller sets their maximum price and the lowest selling price, and as the auction timeline goes down so does the price point of the player.
MLB Crypto are taking a huge leap in trying to attract the average sports fan into their blockchain game because the average sports fan doesn’t have much experience with anything related to the blockchain. So at first, I thought this would be a hurdle for them, but I was pleasantly surprised that on the MLB Crypto website they have provided their users with very in-depth instructions for everything you need to download as well as how to set everything up. Here is a quote directly from their website.
“To play MLB Crypto Baseball follow these steps:
The group wants their crypto game to be as easy to understand as possible, and I believe that the effort they put in to make sure it is simple is a huge plus for potential investors because this makes it much easier for the average fan to join in on the action.
At the end of the day, you have to be willing to make your own decision because it is your money. But I believe this project has a very promising future, and its partnership with the MLB could really turn out to be a huge thing. Imagine if the MLB themselves start to promote this to their millions of fans instead of trying to sell physical baseball cards or memorabilia.
This project could be one of the first crypto collectibles to be adopted by the average person. Which could be incredibly important for the growth of crypto gaming and blockchain games as a whole, but also improve the growth of cryptocurrencies.
I have started to secure some more players when I find good deals on the marketplace, and I expect more and more people to begin to do the same.

So you’re telling me that things we all used to collect like Pokemon cards and Beanie Babies are now on the blockchain?
To keep it simple: kinda, yeah.
For as long as humans have been on this earth, people have found something to collect and put their money into. Whether that is paintings, sculptures, ancient currencies, or now focusing on “crypto-collectibles”. In theory, these collectibles are just like any other collectible, as they’re an asset that value is put on to. But the obvious difference is that crypto-collectibles are not only digital assets, but they are intertwined on the Ethereum Blockchain.
There are multiple marketplaces to buy and sell crypto collectibles
Decentraland, who is a main player in the crypto gaming world, describe crypto-collectibles like this:
“A crypto-collectibles is a cryptographically unique, non-fungible digital asset. Unlike cryptocurrencies, which require all tokens to be identical, each crypto-collectible token is unique or limited in quantity.”
“Typically, crypto-collectibles are visualized as real-life objects such as pets or avatars. Each token has variations in specific attributes and there are limits to the number of tokens that can be generated.”
While this may seem a bit different, but it’s not too hard to understand when there are paintings selling for $450m, or egg-shaped sculptures selling for $57m. This leaves loads of room in the market for the generation who grew up collecting playing cards, stuffed animals, and even digital assets (hello Neopets!).
The reason people are looking to spend thousands of dollars on these crypto collectibles is answered by the term, “digitally scare”. It’s the same as any physical collectible item such as a painting, they are valuable because they are unique. Which is common for physical items, but have become new ideas for digital items as they are basically made up of software code.
You can see the high demand for collectible items if you take a quick look at Ebay’s collectible category.
What makes digital scarcity such a unique idea is that digital items or digital assets throughout its rather short history have always been abundant in nature. Meaning that once you have one digital product (for example a spreadsheet), you can copy and paste this product as much as your heart desires. However, with crypto collectibles, this isn’t possible as each digital asset is unique.
This whole idea goes back to the beginning of Bitcoin, and the idea that there needs to be a fixed supply of currency which is resistant to change in order to help regulate the economy and keep it stable.
At the end of the day all you really need to know is that what makes crypto-collectibles unique is that there is scarcity because there are only a certain amount of each asset, and fungibility, which means that they are essentially interchangeable (for example an ounce of silver exchanged for a different ounce of silver because they have the same value because of the fixed amount of silver).
There are millions of games online that use in-game currencies such as Runescape using gold pieces to trade items with in-game players, or Fortnite using V Bucks to purchase skins and emojis for your character. But what these have in common is that at the end of the day, these currencies are controlled by the company, and they can change or alter them whenever they please.
What separates non-fungible tokens (NFTs, or a fancy way of talking about crypto-collectibles) from these other game currencies is that they are stores within the blockchain and are not at the will of the company to alter.
So now that you have a brief understanding of the background of crypto-collectibles or non-fungible tokens, we can jump into the fun stuff. Which is: How does this apply to you?
This applies to you as a consumer because this introduces the new wave of highly profitable digital assets that are cryptocurrency collectibles!
There were a few different crypto gaming projects that were in the crypto gaming 1.0 stage that got the ball rolling but never quite had everything put together. But the first project to really stand out and make headlines was the CryptoKitties Project.
The most expensive CryptoKitties have sold for as much as $114,000
CryptoKitties launched on November 28th, 2017 where it captured the interest and imagination of thousands of people while also selling millions of dollars of digital assets (in this case, your own digital cat).
Users quickly bought their own digital cat, while certain desirable cats becoming valued at hundreds of thousands of dollars. Because there was such a high demand for these digital kittens soon there were different auction websites such as Kitty Sales to help purchase the cat of your dreams.
Although some complain that the project is useless because the cats don’t do a whole lot… This project was definitely the first project to really capture the market and pave a new path for non-currency uses on the blockchain.
The short answer is that CryptoKitties are cute!
But in all seriousness, a single CryptoKitties is unique in many different ways compared to a different CryptoKitties. Each CryptoKitties token is made unique because of these different properties such as color, breed, age, or even what kind of teeth your cat have. These properties made each CryptoKitty different from another, so they can’t be evenly exchanged for different tokens like cryptocurrencies such as Ether or Bitcoin can be.
Along with the different properties, CryptoKitties are indivisible and can’t be split into separate pieces like cryptocurrencies can. It’s possible to divide 1 Bitcoin into thousands of different pieces, but the same can’t be done with CryptoKitties.
Since the early success of CryptoKitties, there have been thousands of different projects who attempted to jump on the crypto-collectibles trend. Some projects, such as Decentraland, have very bright futures, however, others have just been an attempt to make a quick buck.
Decentraland describes their project as “A virtual reality platform powered by the Ethereum blockchain. Users can create, experience, and monetize content and applications. Decentrland is the first virtual platform owned by its users. Grab a VR headset or use your web browser and become completely immersed in a 3D, interactive world.”
A replica Decentraland world from their promo video.
There are a few other projects that offer virtual reality universes, think like The Sims, however, what separates Decentraland from other projects is that it is a non-fungible token. So the company can’t completely change everything whenever they want to because the complete project is hosted on the Ethereum Blockchain.
Decentraland has created a complete virtual reality universe that instead of being owned by the Decentraland company, is actually owned by the users.
Since both of these topics are still relatively new to the world, there are only a few places where you can learn more about it. In my opinion, the best way to learn about crypto collectibles is to purchase one of your own! I would highly recommend checking out CryptoKitties or Decentraland as your first crypto collectible.If you want to learn more about crypto gaming and collectibles I would also check out different subreddits such as r/DigitalCollectibles or r/CryptoKitties or r/Decentraland
