Do anyone have that problem ?

I have this exact same issue.

My Rival's mouse feet seem to be unbalanced.

Only three of my mouse feet actually touch my mouse pad, the fourth mouse foot (located under the left click button) doesn't touch the mouse pad.

I even tried replacing the original mouse feet with a replacement set, and the imbalance is still present.

I'm hoping that eventually the three feet which touch the mouse pad might be worn down enough so that the fourth foot eventually makes contact.

It's frustrating having my mouse dip down off balance every time I use the left click button.

Am I the only one who uses the desktop surface in lieu of a mat?

Yeah, I'd pay more for no smell too. But there was no smell with mine. I didn't buy it from Amazon though, I got it at a local store.

James,

We ran extensive tests on the Rival on our end both with and without SteelSeries Engine 3 and haven't found the discrepancies in CPI as you've mentioned. We used a few tools to inspect and record the CPI set down at the firmware level during gameplay and during normal/typical use and it always remained constant for us. We'll continue to keep our eye on it but so far there's no clear evidence of CPI spikes.

However, a new version of SteelSeries Engine 3 was released today which you might want to check out. Head over to http://steelseries.com/support/downloads to get the latest version.

Regards,

QA Team"

Lol so looks like this bug will never be fixed, unless they've released a brand new firmware without the bug?

Got the Corsair for $10. I think it was cheapest mouse pad in store lol.. I just wanted to replace my QCK was pretty old and torn up.

I would try the supermat, but it is "only" 16.5 inches wide. I prefer 19 inches wide pads, pity.

Right if you mention it..
The way some piece of plastic under the feet that i had to knife away because one of the feet had a slight bump to it.

Prolly causing the problem.. while you had to notice it while exchanging..

Can anyone actually show how to reproduce that bug you keep mentioning ? From what I understand you go into the driver and see that the DPI is higher\lower by 50, but if you click the DPI button twice, the first step changes back to the original DPI?
You guys understand the mouse is getting older and unless someone quickly shows a video or a way to reproduce this bug, it will never actually get fixed ? I believe you don't, but this is the truth - only if you show how to reproduce the bug, we could press steelseries to fix it.
