It is a long tedious process that has you second guess yourself several times, that also depends on your playstyle and games you play. Till you finally find your balance between being able to move without restrictions (higher sens) and being able to aim accurately (lower sens).

Once you finally have a sensitivity that you are happy with its important to not change it, even on bad days, where you are tempted to change it again.

There are a lot of good players that never ever change anything if they don't have to, so they keep using the same mouse, mousepad and sensitivity.
I've never been lower than 50/360. I am playing csgo and the main reason I was lowering my sensitivity was feeling that my aim was holding me back. But once the highest rank became easy - I stopped bothering with changing my sensitivity and stayed at 40/360. But sometimes I notice imperfections in my aim and wonder if it would be better if I changed my sensitivity, but I am too lazy to try.

Yeah it took me years as well. My usable range is 50cm-70cm so I too picked the middle and settled on 60cm

So honestly, 3000 dpi isn't event enough for me anymore now that I got used to 4800 DPI. literally feels slow and laggy. I don't understand this one bit because I use lower sensitivity with controllers because my wrist control is about 100 times more accurate than my thumb control I guess. I think I might RMA my Gskill mouse because either my mobo is broken or my mouse it. Every mouse with onboard memory should remember what color it's supposed to be and mine went from going first white while booting to off, and now it's going to red after it boots. I just want a white LED in my mouse and keyboard and this is going to force me to waste more money on hardware I don't even want

I'm curious at how my DPI will change when I get a better mouse lol this one is making me pretty mad so I'm looking for one with 1:1 mapping on the cursor I will get a deal second hand online locally most likely. already sunk more than I needed in this PoS lol 8200 dpi sensor obviously won't tell the whole story.

Any good suggestions with sensors that don't ever act up even at the highest amount of g force would be appreciated!

I play on 1440p at 120hz. I use 400dpi for everything, no acceleration, stock windows sens.

Most games i have set to 1.0 sense.

It is 50 - 60cm for me to do a 180.

This is how i played through all my professional years.

I have been using a modified, overclocked, microsoft intellimouse 3.0 for well over a decade.

Wow! Does it have a different sensor in it? I use to just about handle 30cm/360 on the 3.0 but 120cm/360 would be impossible for me.

Standard sensor, using 1000hz polling rate. Considered changing sensor, maybe the newer 3.0.
Replaced cable setup two times, feet every 12 months or more sometimes, using mousewheel assembly out of a logitech g500, and in general always servicing it.
Took some weight out too, but so long ago i forgot what it was.
Tried various switches too for mouse buttons, pretty sure the ones i left in arent the stock ones, they're pretty chopped and shaved up.

Pretty much.

Unreal engine derivatives are usually messed up but it was worse during the "golden console age". The amount of ini tweaks I had to do to get Mass Effect 2 not simply annoy the hell out of me was extreme and that was just for a bloody SP 3rd person campaign :x .
