Sensei Fnatic Edition vs. Sensei MLG Edition

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
Which one would you chose if you have the Option to buy one of them?

I know the Fnatic uses the Avago 9500 and the new MLG the 9800 and I have read that the MLG uses new Switches also.

But I already read of some Guys that they prefere the older Avago 9500 over the new 9800 and I have no Clue why.

So which one would you buy right now if you would have to chose one and especially why?

The Reason why I asked you is because I made a Fnatic Sensei Order on Saturday after I canceled a Sensei MLG Order before, which will arrive on Tuesday and I am just interested what you Guys would do. This will be my last Mouse Buy for a long Time and for sure for 2012 if not a absolutely Super Symmetrical Mouse comes around the Corner you just can't resist.

But I am well informed about the upcoming Mice and there is nothing special to talk about.

I bought alot of mice in the last two months and it slowly gets a lil extreme, but this Fnatic Edition is the last must of 2012 in my eyes.

I have read a few honest Sensei Fanatic Reviews, I mean not those marketing ones, but honest ones, which statet that the Fnatic is the best Sensei you can get.

And if I look at what the MLG has too offer from a Upgrade-Sight, I think and say, it's nothing special or useful compared to a Fnatic Sensei.

Especially the Coating of the Fnatic should be the most comfortable you can get, if you plan to buy a Sensei, so that's why I made this Purchase.
And technically I know how good the Sensei is from the Original and the 16400 DCPI of the MLG are useless for me anyway, if I tell you that I am a CS Player who plays with solid 400 CPI/DPI. I even use 400 cpi/dpi on the deskopt and have no Problems with it on my full HD 120Hz BenQ XL2410T.

What I plan to do now, is stopping this useless massive Mousepurchases and play with the Fnatic until it's defective and if that happens 50 to 200 other new Gamingmice are available on the Market. XD.

Not to mention besides the better Material-Structure that the Fnatic looks pretty damn cool and stylish compared to the original Sensei.

I made my Decision to cancel the MLG Order and make a Fnatic one intuitive and visceral after a few lil Informations.

Why are you going laser when you are playing at 400 dpi?

Because the Sensei has a very strong performance with 400 dpi, if not the strongest with this mouse and really strong max trackingspeeds with low dpi.

What about the accel? You dont notice it?

accel is overrated if you look at the Sensivitysettings the most players use. i play with 40 cm per 360 degree and never had proplems to perform precise ingameactions with lasers of the new generation as in the Sensei or Taipan.

The only thing I can imagine is that a player with a extreme low sense could notice a few fails because of it. But to be honest. I only heard about the accel with these lasermice from other members but never noticed something weird while using such a mouse like the Sensei. Even precise Flickshots are possible with it and lay in your skill.

Even top international Counter Strike Pros like the Source Player cajunb using a Sensei in important Tournaments like the copenhagengames 2012 and I know a few pros which used a buggy Xai before and not only because they were forced because of Sponsors like Steelseries.

That's the problem, most people aren't able to notice the tiny amount of acceleration in normal usage (me included... I just feel that "something" is off). But let me tell you this: it does affect your aiming.

If your crosshair misses your target by just a tiny bit in a flickshot due to the minute acceleration... well guess what: you still miss your target. But as you'll tell yourself it's been your own fault, it actually is very likely that the acceleration was the real cause. The tiny acceleration most people can't even feel.

I mean you know there are even Counter Strike Pros which play with a Intelli and real windows accel and that is some real noticable accel some Players dont like or think you cant be consistent enough with it. But some players like mTw nooky prove they are wrong or just that they have anther imagination of a good mousefeeling.

And i also played with windows accel a few months and know from that experience that its no problem, but ofcourse it is a matter of taste.

Yeah i can imagine what you mean, but persnally I think it is more a thing of getting used to it like some players are used to windows accel.

I had a mouse with A9500 sensor and I could feel the acceleration. More than that, I knew when it made me fail several shots, and trust me, it wasn't rare.
Then again, the game is a lot faster than CS (meaning that turns of 180º to track an enemy are common) and my sensitivity is 60cm/360º.

Most "CS pros" use mid (30 to 10cm/360º) to rather high sensitivity, and as a side effect of most of them using IMO1.1 or WMO, they don't make large, fast swipes, but rather pre-aim and only make relatively minute flicks (compare that to Quake pros, making 180º flicks to shoot someone), so the chances of them noticing the acceleration are minimal, at best. I remember seeing several of those CS and CSS finals with those "oh great names" and being surprized at their hand movement. Compared to what I do when playing, they seem to not to move their mouse at all.

So my word of advise, don't get something because pros have it and it works for them. Get something that will work 100% for you and your specific needs. Those guys are paid to play a game, and they need to play it for hours straight everyday, so even if the mouse has huge flaws, they will get used to them in the end (they're gonna use it far more hours than you would at home, guaranteed). That might not apply to amateur gamers wink.gif
