So for a 180 degree turn I would need 6 swipes. I usually play at around ~4000 dpi and use preset DPI settings if I need higher accuracy. Like all modern gaming mouses have these.
So no need to get all worked up how 450 dpi or any other arbitrary number is the "right one". It depends.

Correct, the DPI you need is dependent on your sens. But it is also dependent of your FOV, and with your Resolution I guess you won't be playing that on the standard 90 FOV. So I think you would be fine with something lower than 4000. Unless you have superhigh sens. But then you need high DPI anyway wink.gif

I play all games on 400 - 450 dpi windows on 6/11 on a decent resolution 1920-1080.(and very low sens in shooters)
Is this wrong?
Because if i use 1800 dpi on 6/11 , imust use my mouse very cramped to make precise mouse movement or i must wait to hold it steady.
While if i use 450 i can just easy click without missclicking and can go quickly to another target/action with just not that cramped like high speedy mouse.
I started Starcraft 2 with 1800 dpi and 6/11 windows and in game ,nowadays i use 450 dpi and 6/11 in windows and in game (1920x1080).
But still i can play very fast in this game only i move more with my mouse.

Should i relearn 1800 dpi without lower precision? because im very precise with 450
Whats your opinion?

actually your FOV has no bearing on your sensitivity in FPS games. See the article I linked previously for a concise explanation.

personal preference, I use .6 sens, 6/11, and 800 CPI in CS:GO, and 6/11 and 800 CPI in SC2.

I always thought I should set my mouse so it will be comfortable for me...

I see.

The way I do it:
(For FPS low sens games)

-Set windows sensi 6/11 (default in most cases)
-untick "Enhance Pointer Precision" (does not always disable accel completely)
-Disable Acceleration in Registry
-DPI 450
-Adjust ingame sens so that flicking my wrist from neutral to one side, equals a 180 degree spin.
-Open MouseRateChecker and run 1000hz IF stable, lower to 500hz if not.

I have no clue if lower or higher DPI is better, I've just been using 400-450 dpi for 6 years and it works great for me even at 1080p.
I think my sens is 0.75 in CS I don't remember tbh. about 16"/360. I have the same 17" Qck+ mousepad at work so I can visualize it with my IE 1.1a at work =P

Ok thanks ,but i see for example lot of pro's use 1800 or high dpi.
Do they have a advantage over other pro's with lower mouse dpi?

Eaxmple:
I know Marineking very good korean use 800 dpi (around that)with is naked logitech g9x. Does he has disadvantage against Taeja 1200 dpi ?
and if Marineking use 450 dpi ,against taeja 1200 dpi then he is to slow? tongue.gif

I really struggle with this question because i am master on Eu server just decent player in sc2 , If i use 1800 dpi and try to practice that then im better?

Haha same question triple sorry smile.gif

1800 would just make you worse. Anywhere between 400-1000 works great. Keep in mind that training hand speed and precision is better than anything you can do.

I'm reading the linked article right now, good read so far. I was referring to what Sujoy said in his mousescore setup, basically (360°/fov)x(screenwidth)=pixels in a 360. To get pixel point accuracy you'd need to have enough DPI to cover the inches you need on your sens for a 360.
Example: fov 90, screenwidth 1920 => (360/90)x1920=7680pixels. So to have pixel point accuracy on a sens of 1"/360 you need 7680 DPI, at 2"/360 it's 3840, etc.
Of course that is not 100% exact, but at least it gives you a rough impression how much DPI you need. Or is this completely wrong?

EDIT: I read the whole article, but am still a bit confused, is the needed DPI fov dependent to some extent or not at all?
