Low sens players, explain me something - Page 3

post #21 of 63
The pros have an ability to almost always point in the right direction. And they lift their mouse al the time. You should always be able to do a 180 if needed.

The sensor should be fast, precise and never ever, ever skip a reading. It should have no angle snapping and if it has a low sens help to minimize the error.
Had to return a G5 due to the fact that the sensor wasn't fast enough. Played CS 1.6 with around 80cm/360 or lower sens.

Totally not up to date, but every in this very, very length test still counts

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.
Might just try that, thanks

@peterhejlejensen: I'm currently rocking EC1 and G400 so no problems there smile.gif Nice read anyway

Still slightly concerned about the... healthiness of bigger arm movements. I've been using medium sens for years and never had any strains, could low sens be worse?

Yup, that's why I said it's game dependent. I wasn't talking about fps games in regards to high sen and dpi switch on the fly. Though maybe for some players that's what they prefer as well for fps.

I don't think it puts more strain on you, maybe even less as I do all big movements with my arm, taking away stress from my wrists. I never had any troubles like RSI or something.

Big thanks to you! +REP

I personally move my elbow and my shoulder instead of my wrist.

I never had any physical problems using low sensitivity. As long as you do not try to compensate using your wrist you should be fine. That is why you use a large mouse pad.

When people say you "need" to be able to do a 180 without lifting your mouse, that is not necessarily true. Depending on the game, if you are having to do a 180 quickly that is because you failed at positioning yourself or you lack awareness/game sense. Obviously certain games require a lot of 180s, that should go without saying.

That explains Glockateer's performance in CS... biggrin.gif

Lower sensitivity = more precise aiming and shots.
Do note that you do need a big mousepad.. something like a SteelSeries QcK+ or something of that sort that would help you so you will have enough mousepad space.
