1. What's your grip style?
Depending on the game, CS, CoD, BF3 are all claw when sniping, mix between claw and fingertip in everthing else
2. What's your sensitivity?
1600DPI in most, drop it to 800 DPI in CS quite often, increase it to 3200 at others. The best tracking at 800-1600DPI would be preferable though
3. What's your maximum budget?
Less is better (I'm not a believer of more expensive = better product), but anything up to $100
4. Do you want additional buttons?
Mixed feelings (see below)
5. What games do you play?
FPSes ,MMOs and League of Legends, I take the 2 former quite seriously. I snipe a lot when playing FPS games.
6. Do you mind about prediction?
I've been using the "gaming mouse" that came with my MSI laptop, no idea if it uses it, but whichever is best for accuracy, I'll get used to either
7. Other relevant information:
Seeing as I've never used them, modifiable weights don't matter to me. I also don't mind buying 2 mice (and up the budget to $130/140), one for FPSs and one for MMOs, but I have my reservations about how comfortable it is to hit the buttons on the side without moving the mouse across the screen. I've also read that an optical sensor might be better for my sensitivity range (which is why I'm looking at the Storm Spawn). Large brands would definitely be easier for me to find, since I'm not from the US/UK (Razer, Steelseries, CM, Logitech, Gigabyte).
Results I'm interested in from Googling: Cooler Master Storm Spawn, G9x (I've read a lot of complaints about the sensor and/or lift off issues), Razer Deathadder (I know it doesnt have a lot to do with my grip but since I first saw it years ago I thought it looked pretty cool
, issues with build quality have me concerned though, also the 2013 version can only be found for 99USD on special order in SA). The Steelseries QCK is the mousepad I'm interested in, but please recommend another if it offers better tracking for the mouse.
When it comes to turning a lot I often lift off my mouse, a bit of shift is fine, so long as the mouse movement isn't extreme (with my current mouse it's hardly noticable). Build quality should also be important as I'll be carrying the mouse around a lot.
Oh and first post
