Arseniy 'ceh9' Trynozhenko is a man of many interests. When he was younger, he took up martial arts, as well as the violin, signing, and dancing. Where most people in the esports or streaming community will pick a name that’s a play on their name, his handle is a reference to Russian poet Sergei Alexandrovich Yesenin. Not only that, he didn’t start his competitive gaming career in Counter-Strike, or even first person shooters. Arseniy’s first competition was a Need For Speed tournament held in Lviv, where he finished 4th.

Before long, though, he learned about CS, and his star would soon rise. In 2009, he scored his first two tournament victories, then from 2010-2012, he had an amazingly successful stretch amassing 9 tournament victories at A-Tier or S-Tier events. As a member of Team Na’Vi’s “golden roster” they won 4 straight titles in a stretch from 2011-2012.

Now ceh9 has taken a step back from competing himself and stays active in the scene as a commentator, analyst, and coach, using the lessons he learned as a player to help train and shape the future of gaming.

One of those lessons that he learned was that if you want to be the best, you can’t have gear that holds you back. That’s why he chooses HyperX headsets, keyboards, mice, and peripherals. The clarity and comfort of HyperX headsets are essential equipment for streaming, competing, and commentating, as are the precision and reliability of a good keyboard and mouse. Take a tip from ceh9, one of the greatest CS:GO players to ever play the game, and choose HyperX for the gaming gear you need to succeed.
