If Zowie only catered to CS players, the company would be out of business sooner rather than later (thankfully BenQ bailed them out).

I completely agree, I mainly ment what I was saying to be my personal experience and not really a "gaming standard". Jumping DPI on the fly is just to much for me (im a high sens, wrist-ish player) so it just didn't make sense. Id go from perfect sensitivity to doing 360 noscopes (lol) out of no where. I do on the other-hand really like that games now are allowing certain sensitivities to be set per role, vehicle, character that you play. Overwatch does this well depending on the hero you play by being able to setup certain settings that only apply to those heroes, which works great for me.

The EC series also has a laggy sensor feeling compaired to the FK series. My copy of the EC2A has a horrible RMB and lense rattle. My FK1 is near perfection.

That seems rough, Ive been hearing a lot that Zowie mice vary differently as some get good ones and some get really bad ones. Luckily, my new EC2A has been perfect, and definitely an upgrade from what I was using before. I don't have a lot of knowledge with different mice as I have used the same one for many years now and this was my first different type of mouse purchase, but my EC2A seems to have perfect clicks and solid lense. I changed my mousepad to a "control" (weave type cloth) version and only thing I had to do was lower my LOD and things are back to perfect.

Guess I must have gotten a good EC1-A, clicks are crisp and precise, no lag (using a mat I received from a ASRock rep cloth that's a speed/control )
Been playing UT2016 got most headshots in a match (14) that is to this mouse.

I also don't really like the ergonomic shape of the EC series, so not using the mouse to game is alright. Going to try selling it though.

I have heard this a lot depending on your grip. Friend tested my EC2A and he uses a pretty serious claw grip, MUCH lower sensitivity and is not a wrist player at all (Literally the complete opposite to me) and he cant use it, He needs something more ambidextrous and lighter for his grip and just the way his hands are shaped. But if the shape of the mouse does not work, DEFINITELY do not keep using it as that to me is the most important part of the mouse.

I can use the EC2A well in games, but it just feel slower compaired to my FK. Like the tracking is not as smooth or something. The shapes alright, but not really to my liking. And the really high difference in the click feeling puts me off.

If that's how it came right AFTER you took it out of the box, it looks like a refurbished used mouse. But, if you've held it even for a few minutes, depending on how much your hand sweats, this thing gets rather slimey and oily real quickly.

I got it directly from Zowie after RMA'ing my white logo Zowie EC1-A. I probably held it for no longer than 20 minutes total when removing the screwed up mousefeet it came with. The pictures with the Finalmouse next to it, were the week I got it, pictures of the coating specifically were recently. It was kept in a ziploc bag in a cool dark place in my room, so it's kind of odd to say the least.
