Q1: I like the feel of the G502 Proteus Spectrum the most out of the mice I have. Just makes it, having come out in January 2016.

Q2: I use about 8 different buttons when I play Dark Souls III lol, for various attacks, locking onto things, using items, etc. I don't think necessarily think the best mouse on the market will have that many, but...

Q3: PMW3366 of course. tongue.gif 3360 or 3361 if otherwise.

Q4: Nope.

Q5: I assume you mean normal vs. braided? In that case, anything but braided cables. They're stiff and annoying. :/

And thanks for the giveaway! Very generous of you. ^_^

Q1: What do you think was the best shape for gaming mouse released in 2016?
Logitech G403 for medium size hands, unfortunately again too short for large hands.

Q2: How many mouse buttons do you use while playing your favorite game (please list your favorite game and mouse buttons you use along with their functions)?
5
Assetto Corsa
LMB: horn
RMB: brake
MMB: exclusive fullscreen toggle
FMB: lights
BMB: turbo toggle

FPS games
LMB: fire
RMB: zoom
MMB: ability 1 or none
FMB: ability 2
BMB: ability 3
Scroll: item switch

Q3: What sensor would you like to put in your perfect mouse? (The ones that are already on the market)
PMW3360 unless there is something newer "better". Pretty much any sensor that is close to MLT04 in precision but offers the much needed higher (1600 to be usable with 4k resolutions) CPI and max speed.

Q4: Does additional software for mouse is a must in your opinion?
Definitely isn't. Zowie can do the configuration using a hardware button so why not. Otherwise software for configuration is fine, run once and never run again. Do not like bloatware that runs in background and offers features that are often done using a different software anyway, such as hotkeys/macros which are done using autohotkey etc.

Q5: If you could choose cable for mouse what would it be?
None? With a wireless powered/charged mousepad. biggrin.gif But I think you would beat even Logitech by doing that.
If cable is used then non-braided, "wrinkle" free, slippery. My old IE3.0 cable is good, not super thin nor super thick, stays where put and doesn't get in the way.
Where as Zowie cables come all folded and wrinkled, do not hold shape, sure are softer easier to bend but are nearly impossible to setup and get out of the way, twist forever around.
Please do not fold the cable instead try like Logitech does with some of their mice, round it at the biggest possible radius in your packaging.

A nice rubber cable is fine by me, not folded, no wrinkles, not too thick, 3m long.

If you do need to offer a braided cable, offer a replacement paracord braided one.

Q1: What do you think was the best shape for gaming mouse released in 2016?

For confort, the DA is my go to, but for gaming, I love my Revels.

Q2: How many mouse buttons do you use while playing your favorite game (please list your favorite game and mouse buttons you use along with their functions)?

m1, m2, m3 and one for thumb. Thumb for microphone exclusively. m1 shoot, m2 alternate (scope), m3 change weapon (scroll up), m3 jump (scroll down), m3 button unused.

bf4, cs:s and cs:go

Q3: What sensor would you like to put in your perfect mouse? (The ones that are already on the market)

I really like the 3360 @ 400 DPI for 1080p and 800 DPI for 4K.

Q4: Does additional software for mouse is a must in your opinion?

IF and only if you add bandwagon RGB LEDs so I can turn them off or set them low solid color.

Q5: If you could choose cable for mouse what would it be?

non-braided, thin, non-sticky, in 6-10 feet.

Other.

<90g, PBT plastic instead of ABS.

Q1: What do you think was the best shape for gaming mouse released in 2016?

The one on the Logitech G502 Spectrum. I liked it when it was on display at a local expo a while back.

Q2: How many mouse buttons do you use while playing your favorite game (please list your favorite game and mouse buttons you use along with their functions)?

On my DeathAdder Chroma, I mostly use 5 of them, but some of the RPG's can be done with the regular scroll and side clicks on the mouse. I currently play The Witcher 3, RotTR and AC Revelations. I usually do play BF, but that is just for the SP.

Q3: What sensor would you like to put in your perfect mouse? (The ones that are already on the market)

Obviously, the 3366 with adjustable DPI's. I use 800 @ 1080p

Q4: Does additional software for mouse is a must in your opinion?

Don't make it Synapse.

Q5: If you could choose cable for mouse what would it be?



Plzz. But I'd take braided cables provided they are not too stiff. 3m long due to my desk

I haven't used that many mouses, but your comfy mouse looks like it has nice shape, I definitely prefer a resting place for the side of the thumb. So you could make it for ambidextrous use.

3 mouse buttons, I would say Trine 2 is my favorite now. In other games like first person shooters, or third person shooters, I use the right-mouse button for focus, zoom, scope, and the left-mouse button for shooting, middle mouse button-wheel I use to change weapons and power.

I'm very new to mouse sensors and I don't know anything about them, I'm presently using Dragon War Emera 3200DPI mouse, at different DPI settings it is nice in different games.

That depends, if it is run just once to configure and calibrate the mouse and leave it and doesn't run in the background, I might like it. Also if it allows me to change colors and put a multihued colors, I might like it.

I would choose a cable which is multi-hued and illuminated, which can show different colors and rhythmically change to music or sound effects, which is durable and doesn't tangle.


Thanks for this giveaway.

Q1: What do you think was the best shape for gaming mouse released in 2016?

From 2016, Logitech G403. Most Logitech mice have that shape and I find it the most comfortable.

Q2: How many mouse buttons do you use while playing your favorite game (please list your favorite game and mouse buttons you use along with their functions)?

Battlefield 1

* Scroll wheel for switching weapons
* Scroll wheel left/right tilt for DPI control
* Side button 1: In game VOIP
* Side button 2: Grenade

Q3: What sensor would you like to put in your perfect mouse? (The ones that are already on the market)

PWM3366

Q4: Does additional software for mouse is a must in your opinion?

Yes, but simple. I prefer function over being able to control flashing lights. Give us the ability to control sensitivity etc... with software.

Q5: If you could choose cable for mouse what would it be?

Non braided. Thin plastic would do.

Q1: g403, it's a safe shape and fit most grip style or scream1
Q2: Button 4 for teamspeak and 5 for ingame push to talk (counter-strike) or freelook for games like arma
Q3: 3366/3360
Q4: No need for software but you need to be able to change hz dpi and lift off distance like zowie mouse.
Q5: The less stiff possible and not braided or even better, wireless.

Q1: What do you think was the best shape for gaming mouse released in 2016?

From 2016 - Razer Abyssus V2 (i think one of the best shaped mouse in my entire life was A4tech oscar 718 really, currently using fk2). Hand ca 18.5cm.

Q2: How many mouse buttons do you use while playing your favorite game (please list your favorite game and mouse buttons you use along with their functions)?

CS:GO
LMB for fire
RMB for alt
one side button for microphone

Q3: What sensor would you like to put in your perfect mouse? (The ones that are already on the market)

3360/3330 without rattle

Q4: Does additional software for mouse is a must in your opinion?

nope

Q5: If you could choose cable for mouse what would it be?
from most to less important

- definitely not sticky (worst nightmare)
- for sure not stiff
- braided or not ? I dont care as long as 2 above conditions are true, from my experience good soft braided is better.

Q1: What do you think was the best shape for gaming mouse released in 2016?
- G900, I never thought I would like the ambi-shape as much as I did with the G900. The rounder, less sloped "butt" of the mouse makes all the difference.

Q2: How many mouse buttons do you use while playing your favorite game (please list your favorite game and mouse buttons you use along with their functions)?
- Overwatch: LMB (Shoot), RMB (Scope/Alt), Scroll Wheel (Jump), L Thumb Button (Melee) = 4 buttons total.
- ESO: LMB, RMB, Scroll Wheel (Zoom), Both L Thumb Buttons, one to open (Items) and other for (Skill) = 5 buttons total.

Q3: What sensor would you like to put in your perfect mouse? (The ones that are already on the market)
- 3360/3366

Q4: Does additional software for mouse is a must in your opinion?
- Personally, I don't like software as a "must" but rather an option to adjust settings, lighting effects, LOD, etc etc.

Q5: If you could choose cable for mouse what would it be?
- Wireless personally (Reason why i have the G900). Else, I would like a detachable cable that you can custom make if you like. I prefer braided cable but without the core-sheath over the 4 inner cables and no inner paracord. 4 light copper cables with just braided sheath for lightness and flexibility.
