Low sens players, explain me something - Page 2

post #11 of 63
It's all relative, if you played at that sens for 2 weeks it wouldn't feel any different. I used to play CS with a high sens, 400dpi with 4.2 in game. Then I switched to 2.2 @ 400dpi and it of course felt weird at first, but after I got used to it I noticed it is easier to control recoil and hit during close engagements.

You need to play at the sens for awhile to get used to it. It is actually a big change when all you've ever played at is high sens, like a baby talking its first steps.
With low sens, it's easier to trace regardless of the situation.
You have more control because when you move your mouse, your brain can register the movement on screen easier.
It can prevent you from over flicking, which is a more common problem when you have a higher sens where you have less control.

People say the downfalls of lower sens is that you can't turn around fast enough in FPS etc., if you can't turn around you're either not used to sweeping fast with your mouse or the sens is just too low to be viable in a game. I play at a sens where to turn 180, it takes me 3 small swipes, but when I'm getting shot at I can turn 180 instantly with 1 swipe. That's my general rule, although I know pro gamers that take at 6 small swipes to turn 180 and use their whole mouse mat to do it in 1 and even I am trying to understand how that's viable... but they are pro gamers so it works lol.
You don't need to turn 360 though, that seems kinda pointless unless you're recording 3200 degrees no scopes on CoD.

But it's also game dependent. Some games it requires you to make hastey turns along with your opponent. Other games you're looking for precision and accuracy that only low sense can deliver. But as a general rule of thumb, whole arm movement with low sen gives you more accuracy and precision than just wrist or hand movement with high sens. I use both, hence require a dpi switcher on the fly.

Well, but you can do that all with low sens as long as you don't go too low. I need 60cm/360 and that's just as fine for BF3 as it is for Quake/Warsow. Going lower would probably be beneficial for games like BF3 but at the same time hurt movement in faster games.

DPI switching is not wise, not if you want to be a good player at a competitive fps game anyway... It just completely throws off muscle memory and creates inconsistency.

I've used to use a very high DPI (5000+) with a low in game sensitivity with RAW input on. 0.23-0.25 in game

I've now converted to using lower DPI's 800 since I'm preparing for my transition to a G400 and higher in game sensitivity with RAW input on, around 0.9-1.1 in game and I have improved my game play significantly.


If you are medium - high sensitivity I would suggest using a medium - high DPI with a proper in game sensitivity. It's better to have a higher DPI to prevent pixel skipping especially if you have a high in game as well.

I'll start by saying I play cs go primarily nowadays, I couldn't imagine playing that type of game at a high sensitivity.

 

By playing on a lower sensitivity and developing a good muscle memory it allows you to react accurately, and have precision in your shots by being able to make micro adjustments. If you can manage those things at a high sensitivity, good for you but you're going to have trouble with consistency (Consistency is key if you want to become 'good').

All that matters is that you can track your enemy comfortably. For me personally, a rotation of my wrist left to right doing about180 degrees tends to be good enough.

So, I've been playing a few games at low sensitivity and I'm getting used to it pretty fast. I'm now able to turn around quickly enough and follow faster targets at 2.2 sens at 400dpi, about 40cm/360. Not gonna go much lower though, anything else leaves me at a disadvantage in extreme situations (like circle-strafing enemies as a scout in TF2) because I simply run out of speed and mouse pad, requiring me to do 2 big pad-wide movements which I find pretty impractical. Anyways, I can tell putting your crosshair where you want is a lot more effortless than at my previous 3.5 at 400dpi

Yeah, that's about what I've been going with till now. Still feels more comfortable than low sens, though I don't have a problem with either anymore. I've always found wrist playing to be accurate enough for me, but if I really get comfortable with moving my whole arm then I'm not going back.

Very slight fatigue on my hand at the moment, I wonder if low sens is more likely to cause strains and hand problems in the long rung?

It's important to feel comfortable with your sens.
Being able to turn fast is another thing.

Doing a massive sensitivity jump is wrong, i don't recommend that at all.
The 2 weeks are going to be hard and afterwards you'll end up at the same sensitivity again.

What you do is lowering your sens in small steps over some time.
Like -0.3 sens after 1 Month.. or if you feel yourself that you can go a step lower.

If it starts to feel awkward, stop.. get used to it and than try to get lower some other time.

You are going to adjust your sensitivity along with your ingame skill.
No need to rush, it's like a real life workout.. you can't get big arms in 2 weeks.
