For those that have actual keyboards/mechs how much would you say they "assist" movement and stutter stepping? Obviously it won't make you a god, though is there a noticeable difference(justifying the price) between that and a normal crappy keyboard? I have This from 7 or so years ago and I don't know if its worth the upgrade. Personally I am comfortable with it, though I always wish it could be a little more responsive. Like I just have to give a quick medium tap to a key and I stop my movement.

If people say its worth it I might look into one. In that case suggestions? Nothing too pricey.

I was going to get a 120hz monitor although I found out I can finally get cable internet so I am going to spend money on that instead. For those of you who have comcast how is it for gaming? Right now this game blows on 4g. Too much jitter and makes it so unsmooth.. in terms of everything actually.

I really can't wait to get new internet. With a decent setup right now this will make a world of the difference!

The difference is huge, and it's worth it. Check out the mechanical keyboard guide here on OCN if you haven't already, so you can try and decide on a switch type. The best value mechanical keyboards are the CM Storm QuickFire Rapid, QuickFire XT, and the Stealth versions of those. The build quality is leagues above everything else in that price range.

I'd say that there is a small difference. I don't think it's really worth it unless you type a lot or are a pro.

I agree, mechs just feel a bit more responsive and if you haven't used one before then you're fine without it.

Well, cherry MX blue switches feel more responsive to me, but that's probably because it's easy to hover slightly above the actuation point. I play on an IBM model M, which is terrible for gaming, but it doesn't really make that much difference to me.

I used to be on a Logitech Office pro keyboard, which I had for about 4-5 years I guess. I was gonna switch to a Saitek Eclipse III or whatever newfangled backlit keyboard was on the market, but I thought I'd go mechanical. Been on it for about 3-4 years now, and I don't regret it. Hate typing on any other keyboard. And HATE playing on any other membrane keyboard. There is actually a world of difference. It's easier to control, you have tactile ( I use Cherry MX Blue ) feedback, which is excellent for stutterstepping, which I simply couldn't do in 1.6 on membrane keyboards at LAN. Source, well, never required it since you could just run around and spray.

I don't even thin gaming mice are worth the money. I use a cheap $10 Logitech M100 and it does not hinder my aim in any way. I also use a cheap Logitech rubber membrane keyboard but love the bouncy feel the rubber membranes have to them.

I've given this game a fair try and I have to honestly say that I'm not impressed and I do not believe it's a worth upgrade to the CS series. Moving spraying head shots are still common, hit boxes are still too large, the sound in this game is not directional enough, and the game feels more isolated compared to Source.

In source you could jump from map to map surfing one minute and the next minute playing scouts and knives and the next minute playing competitive. In this game the competitive mode feels like it isolates the game and to be honest I feel like Source has better gameplay.

My guess is that you don't play this game on any team or competitively for that matter. IINM if you use a low or even medium sensi, your M100 will skip like mad. This is why gaming mice are better. And I'm talking about the actual ones with excellent sensors and stuff. Also, in all versions of CS, you can run and spray and get headshots. The spray pattern is actually randomized in GO. Not to mention the hitboxes are about half or 3/4 the size of the source hitboxes. As for sound, entirely dependent on your setup.

I liked the source gameplay, but I've adapted to this and I can still tear opponents a new one. My guess is you're just not doing well enough in this game, hence you don't like it. Source was a much easier game. It required gamesense over aim.

I play at AK Level II and still have been winning every match that I play in match making mode (I just don't play enough to rank up faster to Eagle.)

M100 is just fine it doesn't skip or anything. I use a medium sensitivity and my mouse never skips as much as I can tell and I have used the best competitive mouse in the world (MS Intelli 3.0) prior to owning this mouse and in my opinion a gaming mouse is somewhat of a gimmick.

The hitboxes are still too large though. The guns should just be given more recoil like they have in 1.6.

Right now the game feels and looks like Source with COD4 graphics.

It's a shame because I feel like the competitive fps genre is dying a slow death and has been over the past few years.
