I like it so I really don't mind. However they should have released an ec 3310 rather than an FK imo

I'm back to 344.60 and it seems somewhat fine now (not as good as before but oh well ...).

I always had an 10-16ms ping in Battlefield and ever Since Final Stand I have nothing but troubles and feelings like people with > 30+ Ping always get their bullets registered before me ... or that I only hear bullets that killed me after I'm dead (1s+). Or that I encounter kill trade after kill trade. Every now and then I find an server that doesn't have that ... but those are rather rare since the Patch. And the forum is full of the same stories.

@Metal:

Must be because you play with 400 or 800 DPI right? Can't play with such low sensitivity with my display size ... everything above that doesn't work as well. At least not for me with the Talent. Might be entirely the Mousefeet or something. I always overshot and become unsteady. With the QCK+ I can aim more properly even tough I'm not fully used to 1600 DPI yet (used +- 1200 DPI before).
Major case of the shrugs. I stream it every day now and play every day with the FK1 and Talent, with mouse sens set to 70cm/360 as calculated by www.mouse-sensitivity.com, so that's between 6 and 7% on the in-game slider, at 400 CPI. Works better than any combo I've used thus far.

What's the best refresh rate combined with 400 dpi?
post #1784 of 2101
After several months of using this mice, i can't say anything only that i love it. Hadn o problems with traking, use it at 400 dpi, 500 hz and 6/11 in windows. Anybody wondering about mousepad for this mice, i used Qck Heavy, no problems with traking just needed something with a little bit less friction. Ordered an Artisan Hayate, used it for a week, got back to the Heavy. Artisan Hayate soft L is way too fast for my gameplay style. Messed my HS% ratio with 5-6% from 50% to 44-45% in cs go. Switched to the Qck Heavy, got 49% HS ratio in competitive CSGO. I put the extra feet ontop of the ones the mouse had cause after 2 weekes of using it, the left side of the mouse kept touching the mousepad. It seems to me that it tracks better with the extra feet on.

I thought about doing this but I was worried it wouldn't track properly. I might give this a shot.
