The very low LOD is the cause of this. This is why i'm not using this mouse anymore. I thought it's just me, but i can see lots of guys are having this problem lately. If i press down hard on the mouse the malfunction speed is indeed around 3 m/s, but if i "tilt" the AM slightly then the sensor stops tracking giving the impression of skipping very easily. Imo a LOD lower than 1 mm was a bad decision from Zowie, 2-2,5 mm would be acceptable while giving a higher malfunction speed and eliminating this "tilting" problem. I can only imagine how badly it affects a low sensitivity player, having to lift the mouse to reposition constantly.
