How to start: Building your first Gaming Setup

By News

Gaming can be very accessible (even through your phone!), however, if you are serious about gaming and are looking to either build a career in esports as a player or creator, or you consider it to be a major hobby, upgrading your set up can be extremely beneficial, this may include:

Gaming PC or console

The first thing you will need is a gaming PC or console to play your favourite games. Choose a device that is compatible with the games you want to play and has enough power to run them smoothly. Gaming PCs can be pre-purchased, or if you are able to, you may want to build one yourself so you are able to fully customise it. Just make sure to do your research on the PC parts before you order them to ensure they are compatible and read building instructions very carefully as to not damage any of the parts.

Our partners at Acer Predator have a wide range of amazing gaming PCs:
Predator Gaming | It Lies Within | Predator | Acer Australia
We also recommend Intel:
Intel | Data Center Solutions, IoT, and PC Innovation

Gaming monitor

A good gaming monitor is essential for a great gaming experience. Look for a monitor with a fast refresh rate, low input lag, and high resolution to get the most out of your games. A good quality gaming monitor can make a huge different in how smooth game play feels and can have a massive impact on your play.

Our partners at AOC offer some excellent options for monitors:
Home – AOC Monitor

Gaming mouse

A gaming mouse with customizable buttons and high precision tracking will help you to perform better in games. You may consider wired/wireless options and there are plenty of options out there. Mice with extra buttons can be customised, which can come in handy, especially in FPS games.

Gaming keyboard

A gaming keyboard with customisable backlighting, macro keys, and mechanical switches can improve your gaming performance and provide a better typing experience. Again, with plenty of options, we recommend you do your research. Switches are a variable part of a keyboard so you can decide on the feel of your keys – you may prefer clicky keys over tactile or quieter keys.

Gaming headset

Another important factor to consider is a good gaming headset, which will be essential for clear audio communication with other players and an immersive gaming experience. Look for a headset with good noise cancellation, comfortable ear cups and quality sound. Some headphones come with in built microphones (which some of you may prefer), however, some prefer a standalone/desktop mic. Another option to consider with a headset is whether you’d prefer it to be wired or wireless.

Gaming chair

A comfortable gaming chair is important to prevent discomfort and injury during long gaming sessions. Look for a chair with adjustable height, armrests, and lumbar support. There are some big gaming chair brands to look to, but you can also look for a good ergonomic office/desk chair. So long as the chair provides support for your body, the money is well spent on your health. 


A webcam is important if you want to stream your gameplay or communicate with other players during multiplayer games. Choose a webcam with good resolution and a wide field of view. Although this may not be a necessity for pro players, if you plan to be a content creator and want to live stream or record videos, a good camera is necessary.

Mouse pad

A gaming mouse pad with a large surface area and low friction can improve your mouse movement and accuracy.

External hard drive

If you have a lot of games or large game files, an external hard drive can provide additional storage space and improve your PC’s performance. If your PC reaches its full storage capacity, you won’t be able to download anything else and your PC may slow down. Make sure to have a good amount of storage and upgrade or purchase more if you need it.

By ensuring you have a good quality gaming set up, you can be maximising your gaming abilities and giving yourself the best chance of success. Consider all of the above points and if you’re just starting out, begin with what you can and upgrade your set up as you go along.

By High School Cup, News

At the AEL, we’re incredibly proud of schools’ and students’ success, and we look forward to sharing and celebrating this with you all. Today we celebrate Cathwest and their student, Daniel, who came second in our Summer Series for Super Smash Bros Ultimate!

We asked the school and Daniel to answer some questions (below) and we were also told of an esports workshop the school ran to discuss all things esports, where Daniel also contributed!

Response from Cathwest:

1.    Why did you decide to create an esports team and join the AEL?

We joined the AEL after looking at the opportunities in the Australian High School Scene, and found that the tournaments run by AEL would fit best with the games offered but also allowed our seniors to compete, as other competitions allowed only the juniors not seniors to compete.

It also meant that students that would normally not be in representative sports have an opportunity to represent their school, and showcase their talents and skills in a fast growing form of sport.

2.    Had you known much about esports prior to this?

I looked into esports after a couple of the students I taught had interests in this space and wanted to see what it was all about and understand why the students had an interest in this space. I myself owned a few consoles over the years, I am a bit of a gamer myself and saw that this as an area to get involved in to give young people opportunities to further explore and develop their passion and interests, in a learning environment that enables them to.

3.    How have the students balanced esports and study?

Students balance esports and study by doing their main gaming during school during breaks, and as they have gamed during the day, they find themselves spending less time gaming at home but more on spending time completing their studies.

It also meant that students were in an environment where their activities were accepted, supported and enabled where they could develop skills that aligned with their studies.

4.    What excited you and the students about esports?

I think what excites me and the students about esports is how any game can become a game that players can compete in. Unlike AFL and Rugby where you have to play on a set sort of rules, esports means that players get to compete in different games and game types.

It means at school there’s always conversations on the sort of games people are playing and sharing of cartridges and games to check out. 

5.    Do you have an esports club? How was this established?

I created an esports club at CathWest, as it was important to create a safe and inclusive space for young people interested in gaming, but also to find and create new friends through participating in the activities offered in the club. 

The origins of the club started during when the school was in lock down and the kids

Once back to face to face, it grew into a bit of a social club that ran during lunchtimes for the students to come in during breaks and participate in pick up and play games using nintendo switches or to spectate and cheer on their friends that competed. This was non competitive and it was great to see young people form friendships through the exploration of different games but also developing their digital skills through a modelling and mentoring process through peer teaching where students that were experts in certain games shared their tips and tricks with each other and coaching so they could become better players. 

For those that were wanting a competitive opportunity students were encouraged to join the school’s representative esports team that competed in the AEL High School Cup. It also meant that students became more confident users in technology staying connected with their peers as being in the esports club students were communicating and seeing that transpose into other areas.

6.    What would you say to other schools about encouraging the students with esports?

We as teachers are there for the students; where we want to see our students happy and enable success for them. For me encouraging and nurturing student interest in esports provides another opportunity to encourage students to come to school particularly of the challenges presented post covid; but importantly a space for the students to safely be themselves. 

Esports unlocks so many opportunities for the students across a wide range of interest areas in the technology space, and an innovative approach to encouraging students seeking technology careers through their exposure in esports.

Definitely encourage teachers to look into esports as well as esports education and reach out to other educators in this space to get started in forming their own esport clubs in schools but venture into the world of esports.

Response from Daniel Kapustic:

1.    How did you get into esports? 

I got into eSports from watching a lot of content creators and pro players play my favourite game, Super Smash Bros. My brother also inspired me to get into eSports by competing and winning a tournament in Rocket League. When I found out that my school allowed us to play Super Smash Bros competitive against other schools, I was so happy and wanted to do it immediately. It was my first taste of what a smash competition would be like. 

2.    Is esports a career you’d want to pursue beyond school?

Definitely. If I get to play my favourite game as a career, that would be one of the best things ever. 

3.    Could you please tell us about your experience with the league.

Playing in AEL was very fun. Everyone I versed in the tourney was very nice and had good sportsmanship. I got some compliments about my skills from them also. 

4.    What advice would you give to future players?

Never doubt yourself. In games like smash, you gotta have trust in yourself and your character. If you are constantly thinking that you are bad or your character is bad, you will 

play worse. Encourage yourself, say things like I’m the best and my character is busted. 

5.    How did it feel to compete?

It feels great. It gets very exciting and happy, especially when you win. 

The esports workshop:

The topics discussed at the workshop were based around organising a tournament bracket using challenges and time was spent developing skills (communication, teamwork skills, strategy) in Mario Kart, where students had split joycons (one student had the left joycon another had the right joycon) and had to work together in both VS Battle and VS Race, to beat the other pair they were competing against.

In Super Smash Brothers, Daniel ran through workshops on how to play and the skills required in aiming towards being competitive, with all students then participating in a tournament that allowed them to practically apply their skills learnt through the day.

The AEL is so proud of Daniel and Cathwest’s achievements and their determination to encourage esports among their students. We see a bright future ahead for these students and can’t wait to see them competing again!

Essential Tips for Safe Online Gaming

By News

Esafety, also known as online safety, refers to the measures and practices individuals and organisations use to protect themselves and others from online dangers and risks. This can include protecting personal information, preventing cyberbullying and harassment, avoiding scams, phishing, and promoting digital wellness.

Online gaming can be a fun and rewarding activity, but it can also expose players to potential risks online. Here are some tips to help you stay safe:

Use a strong and unique password

This will help prevent unauthorised access to your account. Passwords shouldn’t be easy to guess, so no pet’s names or birthdays! You can Google ways to make your passwords stronger, such as using a string of random characters (so long as you remember), or combinations or random words.

Be cautious when sharing personal information

Never share your full name, address, phone number, or financial information. Doxing is an issue many can face when sharing personal info, and if you’re targeted online, your social media accounts may be found which could lead to the discovery of your address, phone number etc. It is much safer in the first place to keep all this information to yourself.

Know who you’re playing with

Play in a moderated environment or with people you know. This ensures the safety of your personal information. It’s best that you know who you’re playing with (no one wants to end up on Catfished!)

Be aware of phishing scams

These can be disguised as gaming websites or emails. Do not click on links or download attachments from unknown sources. This is a general esafety tip that can apply elsewhere, but if you’re downloading programs/software or receive emails from ‘Publishers’ or ‘gaming companies’ always be cautious.

Privacy Settings

Adjust the privacy settings on your gaming accounts to control who can see your profile, activity, and personal information. Like social media, you can set a lot of information to be private on a lot of games/platforms. This is always the safest option if you can.

Report abusive behaviour

If you encounter abusive or harmful behaviour, report it to the game’s support team or appropriate authorities. This is a big one and never something to be ashamed of. Sometimes in online gaming, you may be faced with people who are toxic and hide behind their screens. The best thing to do is not to engage them, but to file a report of the abuse through the game. No one ever deserved to have abusive/harmful behaviour directed toward them online, so hit that report button to stay safe yourself, but also to keep the community safe and prevent it happening to others.

Keep your software and antivirus up to date

Make sure your operating system, game clients, and antivirus software are up to date to prevent malware and other security threats. If you have a trusted antivirus software in place, it can stop threats to your PC long before you even would have known they were there!

Take breaks and practice good digital hygiene

Gaming for extended periods can lead to fatigue and eye strain. Take breaks, practice good digital hygiene, and protect your mental and physical health. This is a big one and something we all forget, but if your mental and physical wellbeing is at its peak, so too will be your gaming performance. It’s cause and effect, so getting an appropriate amount of sleep, balanced diet and fresh air can go a long way when you’re trying to rank up!

By following these tips, you and others can stay safe while enjoying online gaming. Remember that online safety is a shared responsibility, and everyone should contribute to creating a safe and welcoming gaming community, so if you see others struggling with online safety whilst gaming, make sure to suggest some of the above tips to help!

For more information, we encourage you to check out the eSafety Commissioner’s site where you will find plenty of other resources:

The AEL and RLO are teaming up to bring you an all new and improved 2023 AEL High School Cup!

By Uncategorized

Thanks to the help of the RLO, we are excited to announce the new updates for the 2023 Acer High Schools Cup! At the AEL, our aim is to support the next generation of young esports athletes and provide them with a competitive environment in which they can grow and increase their skill. The updates to the Cup will give our players and their schools more to play for, not just more to play in.

The games schools will be competing in will be:

  • Rocket League
  • Overwatch 2
  • Super Smash Bros Ultimate

The Acer High School Cup will now feature various stages of competition, giving players multiple titles to strive for:

  • The May-hem Tournament Champions
  • Divisional Champions
  • State Champions
  • National Champions

As mentioned in the video above, the Cup will be split into the following stages:

May-hem Tournament

Sign ups close May 1st, so get in quickly as we kick off season on the 13th of May with the May-Hem Tournament. The May-Hem Tournament will see every high school team compete in an all-inclusive Swiss format.

Whilst this tournament will provide the first opportunity for teams to take a high school title as the Mah-hem Champions, the Swiss bracket will also provide a primary gauge on how all our teams stack up in skill, leading into the next stage.

*Note, the results of the May-Hem Tournament will be a primary gauge of skill level, it is not the sole determiner of how we split teams into divisions.

**Note, Super Smash Bros Ultimate will have a different format for phase 1.

High School Divisional League Play

Following the May-hem Tournament, teams will be split into multiple skill divisions as part of the High School Divisional League Play.

The split divisions are aimed at maintaining a strong level of competition for every team, reducing the number of one-sided matches and creating a more engaging experience for everyone involved. Furthermore, just because a team has placed in a low division, doesn’t mean there’s only the Division title to play for. More on that later.

Within their respective division, teams will compete in a round-robin where they will face every team in their respective division once. The league play stage’ will take place between May 20th and June 17th. The last week of League Play will mark the end of competition in term 2.

High School Divisional Finals

The action heats up in Term 3, starting with the Divisional Finals. This will see the top 4 teams from each Division play in a single elimination knockout finals to determine each Division’s respective champion. The Divisional Finals will take place on the 12th and 19th of August.

High School State Finals

Following the Divisional Finals, we’ll move on to the High School State Finals, where the top 4 teams from each state will compete in a Gauntlet bracket to decide each State Champion. The 4 finalists for each state are determined by the results of the Divisional League Play stage.

The State Finals will be held on the 26th of August and the 2nd of September. Teams will fight to be crowned State Champions, and represent their home state in the High School National Finals.

High School National Finals

After a long haul of competition, the dust settles to reveal just a single team from each state to battle it out in the High School National Finals. Here we’ll find our ultimate champion of the AEL High School Cup. If you’re not competing in the National Finals, you can still get behind your state representative and cheer them on as they contend for all-out glory.

More info on the National Championship will be released at a later date.

Watch Rocket League on the RLO channel

That’s right, RLO will be covering all the Rocket League action from the AEL High School Cup!

Join us as we follow the best action from the May-Hem Tournament, every match in Divisional League 1, Every Divisional Final, all State Championship Matches, and the National Finals!

Tune into on Saturdays at 1pm AEST!

The AEL High School Cup will also be broadcasted on the AEL Facebook page and the AEL Youtube Channel!
