Mouse sens calculator

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
for anyone that needs to know their inches/360 ( a common term used to tell your sensitivity, how much inches you move across your pad to do a complete 360 in game) use this website http://www.notalent.org/sensitivity/sensitivity.htm sorry if it has been posted but i didn't find it biggrin.gif

good inch/360 for big pads like the qck+ or goliathus alpha are 9-13 inches/360 , its always good to do one 360 across your pad.

good inch/360 for medium sized pads like qck or goliathus medium is 7inch-13 inch/360 , usually anything under 7 inches/360 or high dpi will mess up your tracking, especially while using a laser mouse...

sensitivity is preference, there is no "right" or "good" sensitivity.

Completely subjective; there's no "right" or "wrong" sensitivity - only what feels good for you. I personally use 17 inches (whole goliathus alpha large) to do a 180...

sensitivity is not completely preference. say you play on 4000 dpi, with a mamba on an ironclad will you have good tracking compared to a deathadder 400 dpi on a qck?

But then thats not really sensitivity. Sensitivity was defined by you is x/360

TF2, my competitive game of choice has had top players with sensitivities as low as 2" and as high as 20" (or higher??). It really doesn't matter, you should use whatever is comfortable. I use 9"/360. I used to use 12" but it made serious air strafing too hard/impossible and scouts could bounce around me and it would be too hard to keep track of them.

I don't even use a quarter of my talent to do a 360..

funny thing is i got this from tf2, these are just more "optimal sens" do you think anyone going to tf2 the first time would be good on 2/360 like ww- ?

Possibly if they're used to high sens.

Nobody would be as good as wonderwall the first time they play TF2. If they start with 2" 360 and play thousands of hours with 2" 360, they could be. Not everybody can play at that level though, it takes some natural talent too.

Platinum uses a 3" 360. But I agree, that high of a sensitivity is not optimal for everyone. I think anywhere from 4"-16" could work for most people (if they put in the time to get used to it) but there are plenty of exceptions - its whatever is comfortable for the player.
