First post -_-
So many mice to choose from I have no idea what to get. I've been using the g5 since like 05. It still works fine and I like the shape of it, but I hate the scroll wheel. The scroll wheel hasn't worked right since near the time I bought it and pushing it down as the mouse3 button is very difficult and I've never been able to use it.
1. What's your grip style?
2. What's your sensitivity?
I use 6/11 windows sensitivity and precision turned off. I leave the mouse dpi at 700 because that's the sensitivity I'm comfortable with and just adjust the ingame sensitivity to what ever I'm comfortable with (besides sc2 of course). I see there's some debate as to what settings are actually best on this site. I saw that write up about a while back about using 6/11 and have just been using it ever since.
3. What's your maximum budget?
4. Do you want additional buttons?
just the one or two extra buttons on the inside of the mouse like the g5/mx518
5. What games do you play?
pretty much everything at some time or another. rts, fps, & mmo's. wow, tf2, sc2, dota2, etc
6. Do you mind about prediction?
don't want prediction
7. Other relevant information:
just want something simple with simple drivers with at least the 1 extra button that's comfortable, has an accurate sensor (not even sure if i'd notice the supposed less accurate ones though), and an easy to use scroll wheel. my hands do get sweaty sometimes too in the summer. I've been reading about so many different mice I don't remember which are more difficult to grip with sweaty hands though I saw some were affected by it. would also prefer something on the lighter side without too high of a liftoff distance.
