It just doesn't work with that movement style at all.
Uhhh, highly competitive FPS player here and yet, even with Laser mice on cloth with these known issues, I can't for the life of me exaggerate it that much. Sure it's there, sure it's annoying, but really, once you get used to it, and don't swap back and forth it's not bad at all.
Using Taipan and Ouroboros @ 800DPI. I'm sure the current Opticals aren't nearly as bad as the razer "high end" gaming "laser" mice.
I awp, and rifle, so yes, I flick and drag. However I don't notice the smoothing on 144Hz or 120Hz with 1KHZ polling, on my 60Hz ZR2740W ( minimal input lag, much less then current TN's out there ) the smoothing is unbearable, feels like input lag or just something stupid, as if I'm dragging my mouse through a mud pile.
For me now, it's more of a mouse being functional and feels great to me. As long as the sensor tracks well in various use conditions, I can compensate with my aim. Makes me rely less on muscle memory and rather more of actually improving aim. Makes you a better player all in all when swapping mice or PC's for that matter.

hehe. Skylit, do you happen to know of Razer changed the sensor on the new revisions of the Ouroboros? The one without the "dual sensor" gimmick. Maybe different SROM to for the lack of a better word "compensate" for the lack of the 2nd sensor?Edited by cookiesowns - 11/9/13 at 5:00pm
