CSGO2ASIA.com has prepared you with the type of equipment and settings Anthony “ImpressioN” Lim uses to face all of the best Asian teams!
Anthony “ImpressioN” Lim is a professional Counter-Strike: Global Offensive player from Singapore. He was born In Singapore on February 10, 1996. His professional career began in 2015 with the establishment of No Use Talking. Later in the following year, he joined dream[S]cape, which was the highlight of his journey so far. Among his accomplishments were a 5th-6th place finish at IEM Shanghai 2018 and a 3rd-4th place finish at eXTREMESLAND ZOWIE Asia CS:GO 2018.
Later in 2019, while most Singaporean players chose to remain in the domestic scene, Anthony decided to join Big Time Regal Gaming (BTRG), which featured several of Asia’s best players, including Kevin “xccurate” Susanto and Lee “XigN” Hyun-Pyo.
Despite top finishes at many high-profile competitions, including WESG 2019 Southeast Asia and WDNMD Asia Invitational 2020, the squad could not go much further due to the organization’s dishonest behaviour, which violated player contracts.
The situation forced ImpressioN to seek a new home, in which he ended up with NG Esports later in September of last year. In the Thai-based organization, he reunited once again with Xccurate and XigN. Unfortunately, he faced a similar situation on NG Esports. Six months after the initial formation, NG Esports ceased its operations due to a breach of commitment by one of its co-founders, Samakorn Mahawong. Ex-NG will continue to play under the Team NKT name until they find a new home.

Playing at the highest level means using equipment that is going to maximize your potential. For better gaming performance, a player should have the most comfortable mouse, mouse pad, monitor, headset for him/herself. If these four tools are chosen properly, it can give a slight advantage to the player. As an FPS player, the mouse and monitor are the most important components to focus on. As we can see, ImpressioN uses some of the best equipment available in the market right now.

Aiming and mouse movement is an essential part of skills that is required in order to be good at Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. Finding an accurate sensitivity can be struggling or even nerve-racking. The key is to use whatever feels comfortable and stick with it. It is best not to change your mouse sensitivity too frequently. Although the configuration for every people is not the same, consider trying ImpressioN’s mouse settings down below:
According to ProSettings, more than 74% of CS:GO professional players use a 4:3 aspect ratio, and 73% stretched scaling mode. Changing your aspect ratio will have the greatest impact on the way you view the game. Different ratios allow for different resolutions, and some displays will look differ from others. Nevertheless, keep in mind to use whatever resolution works best for you. There is no such thing as the best resolution for everyone. Same as mouse sensitivity, we advise you not to change your resolution too frequently to have the benefit of your muscle memory.
|Color Mode||Computer Monitor|
|Black Bars / Stretched||Stretched|
