Saluttions all!

If you don't get why I'm asking, here is my diplomatic way of explaining it (but I'm not comfirming or denying whether it's true tongue.gif). Let's say [hypothetically] I want to lower my performance in games and instead of blaming on lack of skill, have it blamed on the universally, or widely accepted terrible mouse that I am using.

Please begin biggrin.gif

My first contribution:

Tired of your friend who does nothing but snipe (when will people learn snipers are not that useful!!) ? Solution: great ergonmics, brilliant click, mlg tracking and a multitudinal number of buttons. Sorry, I was thinking of a different mouse, but back on hand at least he can't scope in ---> http://dynamis.no/wp-content/uploads/2014/01/1984-Apple-Macintosh-Mouse.jpg Having used this Baby for an RTS (let alone anything more taxing) on my Apple Mac, I can safely say it's one of the worst gaming mice I've personally used ... sorry Apple! (Kudos for trying)

EDIT: I'm partially joking about that mouse - It was great for the day; please don't be offended.

I have a 1992 Jaguar XJS! Its ECU has a clockspeed of 2MHz .. see if you can overclock that, hah! thumb.gifwink.gif

Discard your pointing device altogether and just use mouse keys.

Puretrak Valor. Good shape but has a broken or unfinished sensor/firmware? From my memory it has random positive or negative accel and other issues. As an owner of 50+ gaming mice this is easily the worst POS mouse I've tried.

Thats an old mouse, you have to compare it to mice from that era. The actual worst modern mouse you can get is something like this:



Anything under 10usd with no brand is cancer

G9 -> G400s -> Tt Saphira -> G100s -> Krait 2013 -> Sensei RAW -> G402 -> DA Chroma -> G403 Wireless

Tt Dasher -> Qck+ -> Dota2 Qck+ -> Steelseries Dex -> CM Speed RX -> Logitech G240 -> Taito Mid 3mm

Ha ha I know. I'm after some specific models / names that we can have a laugh at. I once had th eLogitech G300 and while it was 'bad', it wasn't terrible. I luckily never tried any of these super cheap gaming mice, but I do want to know if anyone has lol

Also, greetings from Colombia too smile.gif

just go to any big store, any mouse you find under 10-15 with an obscure brand or no brand is the worst you will get

G9 -> G400s -> Tt Saphira -> G100s -> Krait 2013 -> Sensei RAW -> G402 -> DA Chroma -> G403 Wireless

Tt Dasher -> Qck+ -> Dota2 Qck+ -> Steelseries Dex -> CM Speed RX -> Logitech G240 -> Taito Mid 3mm

Guys .... a bit off topic but I found this really good mouse. I think I'll get a bigger HS percentage, right? http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/offer-listing/B0093569OO/ref=dp_olp_new?ie=UTF8&condition=new


EDIT: Here was my first 'gaming' mouse that I used when I first got into PC gaming http://www.currys.co.uk/gbuk/computing-accessories/computer-accessories/mice-and-keyboards/mice/advent-m112-optical-mouse-black-grey-13212947-pdt.html

I would rate it 81.81(recuring)% #nostalgia

Thing is on the advert it says it's accurate, so I assumed it would be accruate like a $50 gaming mouse or something

I have a 1992 Jaguar XJS! Its ECU has a clockspeed of 2MHz .. see if you can overclock that, hah! thumb.gifwink.gif
