Because mice go hand in hand with mechanical keyboards...I hope this wasn't a necessary explanation.

I have never used a multi-button mouse in any of my mmo' gaming, and i have always been top of my class in any roll that iv'e played. Though, some of my raiders were absolutely useless without them.

I'm an MMO player from back in the day where you only touched your mouse to loot things.

The shape of the games are changing alot of games are pushing towards mobility, even world of warcraft's revamped skill set pushes mobility as well.

games like Vindictus, TERA, Dragons Nest, and guild wars 2 really started to push mmorpgs towards mobility styled games.

back in the day mobility wasn't a big thing.

I'm a past top teir korean mmorpg player, pulled some world firsts in my hayday, and i was using a deathadder at the time, using the Q+T strafe method for combat, and kiting when it was applicable to the game. Deathadder was a good mouse, was very useful to help with strafing and kiting.
Nowadays im pretty set on the naga and i can see its difference, and alot of the pro players are toting nagas and g600s, and keypads like the nostromo and orbweaver.
The mmorpg scene is changing. and mmo mice and custom keymaps are starting to be a core part of the way games are being played.

theres people who play top teir with 3buttons and 5 buttons lik AznSoul/HanSoul, but a vast majority are pushing nagas now.

I've been around mmorpgs for over 10 years now, and man how the game scene has changed.
Now there's games like WildStar coming up and its a game super focused on APM and mobility play.

Alright...


I spend the weekend painting it white, sanding, painting, sanding, painting, sanding, letting it cure, then I tried out the Glow in the dark paint. I painting it during the day, misted it, let it set for about 10mins, and basically continued doing that till I ran out of paint, ( entire can of glow paint )

Since it was daylight, It was hard to see how thick I was laying it on and what areas I covered. After I ran out of paint I let it sit for a few hours, and then had to do some pretty intense wetsanding, the paint dried really gritty and stringy, and by the time I got done sanding, I put it under a black light and here is out it came out.


It really does look cool under UV light or in the dark, but you can clearly see the areas I missed ( corners and such ) and areas that were removed from sanding. Even with the white base it looks black in the dark.

Honestly I think it would take probably another 2 cans of Glow paint to cover the entire thing, and at about $10 a can its not cheap ( considering i've spent nearly $50 in paint and supplies to paint these cases )



It does glow well though, In the dark its the classic green glow, but in the daylight It just looks a white top that got really dirty and grimy ( kinda like how white lego's look after a few years )

Even with the stock QFR caps, a white top does look pretty good, so Hopefully I have enough white to paint it all a nice flat white, and if not I have a whole can of blue like my other board and I'll just have two blue ones, or just shelf the project for awhile and come back at it another time.

I'm kinda bummed, after the first case I tried to glow got ruined, and this one pretty much turned out like crap as well, even though I took more time and precautions than I did my blue one.

I have 2 cases left ( grey and blk ) and I want to keep them stock.

Also are other peoples cases as warped as mine have been?




post #16219 of 36842
Yeah, mine was warped bad, like that, but only on one side. It was REALLY hard to get on my keyboard and I had to push down hard on it, my purple one was 100% straight though, but that was the top that came attached to the keyboard.

I think shipping ends up destroying these since they heat up during shipping, and then warp because they have nothing holding them in place.

yeah, maybe so.

Kinda sucks that It didnt work out, and I know If i decide to paint this one white, it won't come out as well since it already has so many layers of paint built up on it.

I guess I'll just shelf it for awhile.

I'm still thinking of selling my mx blue QFR anyway to fund some new keycaps for my red XT
( I love typing on them, but its a little weird swapping keyboards all the time depending on what i'm doing. )
