High Sensitivity Vs. Low Sensitivity Gaming - Page 6

Dpi means little if you dont specify the resolution at which you are playing...

That would be a killer FPS mouse...And you wouldn't have to think if you want a sensitive mouse or not tongue.gif

Razer mouse can do that, I havent tried with others as I don't really need that option. I rather change the sensitivity in games if I need

But in the razer mice you can assign 1 bottom to "On-the-Fly Sensitivity", then you just click that bottom and use the scrollwheel to change sensitivity

You should always use the highest DPI possible on your mouse and tone down the sensitivity with in game settings to get the best precision. You will get the same rotation speed but smoother rotations, meaning you will cover a wider range of possible view angles.

Here's a guide: http://www.overclock.net/mice/173255-cs-s-mouse-optimization-guide.html.

Unfortunately, some games, mostly older games, you can't adjust the sensitivity low enough for 5000+ dpi mouse, so you'll have to settle with lower dpi.

In the CS world that isn't such a problem but in games such as BC2 or CoD being able to turn around quickly can be the difference between life and death.
In a game such as HL2DM low sensitivity players are massively handicapped.

It's an entirely different playstyle. For instance, I play with a wrist-pivoted grip. What this means is that I can swipe the mouse maybe 8 inches at most with a single swipe of my wrist. I don't use anywhere near all of my mousepad because the way I sit and pivot my wrist precludes it. If you get your whole arm in the game and set your whole forearm on the desk, you can suddenly use all of a 15-20" wide pad, and a low sensitivity doesn't handicap you in that way.

DPI is relevant to resolution, sensitivity(inches or cm/360) and FoV. The answer isn't more, but rather enough.

View this thread, I don't feel like explaining.

Far from it. It's a completely different playing style.

With low friction pads, I can swipe 180's consistently within in nearly half a second using 450 DPI, 6/11 windows sensitivity, and 1.5 in game via source engine.

That's 62cm or 24"/360.

CPI can be what ever you want. Try and stay at 800 or above though, lower than that and it becomes inaccurate. Use the game modifier to change the sense in game. Personally, I used 1 and just change my CPI to what ever suits me. Easier to setup that way. Though your in game sensitivity can be anything, you shouldn't keep it at one, just cause you read it somewhere.

If you're used to high sens (like 4"/360) it's usually pretty hard to just jump to low sens. I would just move down steps until you find a place that leaves you room to move fast, yet still have great aim. Some people counter that by having acceleration, but I rather not mess with every game's different settings, or use the crap that comes in mouse drivers.

Right now I use 10.5"/360 in QL and Warsow, I get about 40%-45% LG (tracking aim), which I'd say is pretty good, but there's still room for improvement. Before on high sense I capped at about 20%.
