Just fork over for a paracord fool, smh redface.gif

and RIP in peace if there's any fw/sw tomfoolery this time around.

I suppose. The whole "Aurora Era" was a bit of a unique situation and the actual much-delayed "release" was a flub but I don't see how this is any less "promising" (that is, the raw product) than the Revel/Pro S.

And does it really matter if it was 5, 8, 2000 or just 2 people? They got screwed nonetheless. Knowingly by ninox.

I can pretty much bet it'd be a better experience than say, the Revel, for me personally.
Well he could've gone with a Copperhead shape and it would still be fine for fingertip.
Also, the current picture of the Venator shows that the ass has a prominent rim in the middle.... for what? Design? it's bad designed if you ask me.

It's less promising because there still doesn't seem to be a better infrastructure behind these projects and therefore most likely will suffer similar problems regarding shipment and delays and not receiving anything at all.

You're going to give your money over to BST for a mouse you can buy on Aliexpress?

Makes sense.

I honestly don't think it will affect grip or usage performance negatively. It will ultimately be subjective for each user. As a large-handed FT gripper I wouldn't be coming in contact with it. I'm indifferent on the aesthetics.

AFAIK, this mouse will be distributed solely via Amazon. What about this process would indicate any out-of-the-ordinary shipment issue from comparable products? I'd argue this release format is the most desirable for the average potential buyer, and bst already spoke on this very matter.

Makes sense.

But then you get an A3050. I mean the price difference probably isn't worth it considering you can get the 3050 version for 12$, but what do you expect at this point. Its a proven formula. Have motospeed throw a 3360 in a 12$ mouse and profit.

Edit: Woops said is when I meant isn't.

Being able to increase it higher is mentioned later in on the user manual, and not advertised at all and only mentioned in the specs on its webpage. It's not like it throws "SUPER 12K DPI FOR EXTREME GAMERS ONLY" in your face. It leaves it in because it has no reason not to, it's a win-win to include it because you don't lose anything by having the option. Why is that a bad thing?

I hope this turns out well. I never used a Ninox Aurora, but I hope this one has all the problems from that fixed and doesn't flop.

Yea u are right about the factory settings it comes with, I should have checked that out in the official site. It'd be nice to have things like that detailed here in the first post tho. Another thing I just realized is it's being released with a rubber cable instead of the braided one from the pics, I hope it's zowie like rubber cable for its manoeuvrability.

An interesting mouse indeed. I'm crossing fingers for it to be higher quality than a Revel, specially on the buttons section and not creaking in the shell.. Would be willing to pay extra money for a profuct like that

I'm liking the size and the rounded V shaped back (seems perfect for the average human hand size (19cm)) but the hump on the back instead of the front/middle and the sensor in the center instead of more upfront makes it useless for proper fingertip, claw and some advanced hybrid grips. :/

One of these days I'll go crazy. How is it possible that after retiring from competition 15 years ago, after thousands of gaming mice hit the market since then and not a single mouse has the proper shape/features that 80% of humans love? I must be living in that Idiocracy movie.

Heck, I could go on right now the office mice zone of those big computer supermarkets, pick one of those amazing shapes they have, put a nice gaming sensor more or less between the mouse wheel and the dpi button (but below the mouse obviously) and I would have the perfect fingertip or claw grip mouse. Apparently no manufacturer can do this simple thing that would please around 80% of gamers... 15 years and still waiting. :|

Well, at least they aren't putting the sensor on the back like that Xornet II insanity. Hahah, how I love to lend that Xornet II for good players to try. Everyone is like what is wrong with this mouse? I can't hit a damn Elephant with it...". LOL.

Best of luck with it, not into the shape personally. Hoping if its successful you'll release the same mouse in different models a la zowie (would like a g100s/MiCo shape with side buttons thumb.gif)
