I don't use mouse buttons at all in league or FPS games.
I use it for abilities in Dirty Bomb.
Quoted:
change your windows/ingame sens.
Nononono, NEVER change your Windows sensitivity. That really ****s up mouse movement. Wanna see how? Set your mouse to 800DPI, draw a circle in paint and then increase your Windows setting a few steps and draw a circle again.
Reducing the setting isn't quite as harmful as that just throws away input data, rather than inventing new data like increasing sensitivity does. Keeping to multiples of two (0.5, 0.25, 0.125) should have no noticeable impact on accuracy, but there are several settings that aren't multiples of 2, and I'm not sure exactly which step represents which, so really, the best option is just to NEVER touch the Windows sensitivity setting; leave it at 6/11.

Setting it ingame is not a problem though. I've never seen a game that ****s up mouse accuracy like Windows does.
Quoted:
As for actual DPI though, I can't use anything above 400 for FPS games, but I can't use anything lower than 800 for league. Most of it is just preference though.
Why don't you just use 800 for everything? You can just lower the ingame sensitivity in FPS games to compensate. The number is usually a kind of multiple, so if you're using sensitivity 4 with 400DPI you should get the exact same result with 800DPI and sensitivity 2.

As for the surface tension thing, I've tried multiple mice on different surfaces, and lighter mice always feel off to me. Not sure why. I just kind of over extend my hand movements when the mouse has no weight.
For reference I currently use a pretty cheap 5$ kind of mouse pad and it hasnt let me down with the mice I normally use.

What material is it? Cloth or plastic? Hard or soft?
The mousepad makes a pretty large difference when it comes to moving your mouse.
Still, it's likely a DPI thing for you. You're probably using too high a sensitivity with these ligher mice. What are you using?

It just seems like you're being dismissive and insulting towards people's preferences.

Nah, I'm just blunt and tend to reject ideas not based in logical reasoning. That has a tendency of ruffling some feathers, sadly.

It appears to be rubber with cloth covering it? I think. I'm not exactly a scientist.

Edit: And I thought I mentioned that I use a Corsair Scimitar, and before that I used a Naga hex.

It's important that the top of the pad is cloth, as that generally is the best material to use with teflon feet (which most gaming mice have). Other than size is the only important part of a mousepad. Is it too tiny to use with lower sensitivities?

Yes, I know you have the Scimitar, but what DPI are you using? You can set your sensitivity manually on the mouse (open the drivers to see/set the DPI levels). Try setting it to 800 or 1600. (you can also change it with the two buttons above the mouse-wheel)


I did a quick google search to see if I could find the native DPI of the Scimitar and I found this:
http://forum.corsair.com/v3/showthread.php?t=149305

It seems to be solved, but one can never be too certain. Try doing the same thing. Open paint, set your DPI to 400 (or 200 if it's still too high) and then click, try to move your mouse one pixel and click again (and repeat) to see if you get the same skipping as he does in the video.

I've been using a finalmouse ever since I switched due to hand/wrist pain. Don't regret it at all. Sensor is perfect, and its really light and comfortable to use as well.


AHAHHHAHA, top comment on this Topic :D
