  1. My initial thought was about how I liked, I felt I was able to control the grenades / weapon recoil / movement better in 1.6 - it somehow felt more 'tight', and it wasnt restricting my skills..

    Both Source, GO, BF3 and COD feels limiting, which I think is due to implementing more realistic mechanics, and now Im asking this question:

    Is simple arcade mechanics better suited for eSport than more realistic mechanics? If so, could this be because of the keyboard and mouse being relatively simple input devices?


  2. I don't know about those specs, but supposedly the Ikari has under half the malfunction speed of the A3090 (1.5 meters a second compared to somewhere around high 3.X to low 4.X).

    This conversation's reaching the limits of my knowledge, but apparently it's advisable to avoid multi-colour mousemats for the AM due to the combination of sensor and lens causing jitter and lower malfunction speed. I'm not sure what other mice this might apply to though.

    Well, I'm not sure of the correct technical term (al though suoy calls it "a form of negative acceleration" in my previous link), but I'm guessing it's simmilar to terminal velocity (if you're familiar with physics?) :)

    EDIT: Actually, come to think about it, it's not quite the same... maybe such a term does not exist? In fact, this seems pretty specific ( i was looking for a better word, but couldnt find it) to mice, guess we'll have to invent one for now! ;)

    - I'll try asking my physics teacher about it sometime today

    Actually the Zowie Evo has a max tracking speed of 1,52 m/s or 60 Inches Per Second :)

    - I also just realized that the ikari has a Max tracking speed of 1,3 not 1,5 m/s

    Edit: I found this: http://www.esreality.com/?a=longpost&id=1265679&page=4 , while searching for the term "Perfect Control"

    It would seem that when you hit speeds between the max tracking speed and the malfunction point, you continue turning but at the Max Tracking Speed. At least that's how I understood it.

    Can you try to answer what happens when moving at speeds between the max tracking speed and the malfunction speed?

  5. Yes, yes you should.

    I hope i can get that keyboard with Nordic keys (ÆØÅ)

    It sounds like an awesome keyboard tho :)

    There is no retailer in Denmark that even comes close to kompletts pricing.. - dear god things must be cheap in Norway! :O Anyway, from first hand experience I can tell you that the Quickfire and 6gv2 feels very much alike, and the Quickfires do come with backlit keys! :) However, I also switched from a g15v2 (still have it, and it's still functional) and though the 6gv2 does feel even more solid than the g15 (Feels like harder plastic), you're gonna have to look hard and long to find a keyboard more resistant to liquid than the g15 :P

  6. No, acceleration isn't a result of hitting the malfunction speed. They're two entirely separate things.

    As for your questions they seem slightly strangely worded, but I'll try to answer them.

    1 - No. Some sensors have a very high malfunction speed, but have acceleration at very low speeds. If you want the most accurate mouse you can get, you need a mouse with an S3888, S3988 or A3090 sensor.

    2 - Why would you want angle snapping? I think you can switch it on for some mice in the firmware, but given your situation I wouldn't have thought it was desirable...

    Hmm.. if the a3090's are all the same, will they live up do my demands? They seem to indeed be without accel/prediction, but what about my fast swipes?

    Here's the Zowie Evo Specs from their official website:

    Color: Black only

    Coating: Full rubber paint

    DPI (Dots Per Inch): 450/1150/2300

    Frames Per Second: 6,400

    Inches Per Second: 60

    Max. Acceleration: 20G

    USB report rate: 1000/500/125 Hz

    Connector: USB

    Buttons: 5

    Length of cable: 2m/6.6ft

    Weight without cable: EC1, 97g - EC2, 93g.

    Dimensions:

    EC1: 128 x 43 x 62-70 mm / 5 x 1.7 x 2.44-2.76 in

    EC2: 120 x 40 x 58-65 mm / 4.72 x 1.57 x 2.28-2.56 in

    And here's the Ikari lasers:

    Samples per second: 40.000

    Inches per second: 50

    Mega pixels per second: XX

    Counts per inch: 1 – 3.200

    Maximum acceleration: 20 G

    Sensor data path: True 16 bit

    Lift distance: ~1,8 mm

    Maximum polling: 1.000 Hz

    They seem almost the same to me, but, as stated in #0, it cant handle fast swipes, so will the a3090 handle it better?

    - and sorry about the many edits :P


  7. I'm sorry what is it you are asking? acceleration?
    @Toby

    I'm pretty sure the avarage pc-user and any "non-fps"-gamer wouldn't notice, as they rely on hand-eye coordination rather than muscle memory :)

    Thank you! It might be strangely worded, but Im pretty sure I havent stated that I wanted angle snapping anywhere.. (?)

    Anyway, do you know the Zowie AM's Inch Per Second / Meter Per Second, cause it isnt listed on their website? :)


  9. Yes, yes you should.

    I hope i can get that keyboard with Nordic keys (ÆØÅ)

    It sounds like an awesome keyboard tho :)

    Sounds like you're danish! ;)

    Er selv kæmpe 6gv2 fan, men de er desværre ikke med lys. Prøv at smutte ned i din lokale Fona (el. lgn.) og prøv et par mekanisk keyboards med forskellige switches, så ved du hvilken en du bedst kan lide (Der er altid sådan nogle små huller man kan prøve dem i). Anyway, jeg fandt ud af at jeg bedst kunne lide røde, så jeg købte et 6gv2 fra komplett.dk (komplett er som regel en 100-200kr. billigere end Fona / merlin osv. ) og har ikke set mig tilbage.

    Jeg har en mate der ejer et Quickfire fra CM, de opfylder vidst alle dine krav (og kommer med alle switches) og så forbandet solidt bygget :P

    Edit: Der findes software til at disable windowsknappen, bruger selv sharpkeys til at bytte caps lock med Left Ctrl :)


  10. Hello Guys! :)

    I recently got back into playing CS, but my current mouse is not capable of my playstyle, and here's why:

    Currently I have an Ikari Laser set at ~180degree pr. 45cm (without acceleration), but since the Ikari has a maxspeed at 1,5 m/s, it's impossible to make fast 180turns (When trying to do so, I experience negative acceleration, ie. it doesnt travel the desired distance).

    It's seems (al though I have NOT tested it, as I have no way to do so) that this is happening when I break the 1,5 m/s mark, and thus the mouse is not able to track properly.

    My question:

    - Which mice/sensors has a high maxspeed and doesnt "suffer" from positive/negative acceleration and anglesnapping?

    - Would anybody care to explain when these can occur: Negative acceleration, Positive acceleration and Anglesnapping?

    - SimonH :)

    PS: THANK YOU FOR HELPING!

    *Edited to make myself a bit more clear.

    *Edited out the part about mousebugs (im probably gonna make a second thread about it)


  11. Hi guys!

    I recently bought a pair of steelseries 7h for gaming and the occasionally latenight movie (so I dont wake my roomie) :P Anyway, I had read a couple of great reviews about the 7h and decided to buy it, as the USB version was on sale for about a 100$ (about 15-20% off). However, now that Ive gotten it I.. well I had read some comments about the headset easily breaking, but I was certain the just werent treating it properly.. but HOLY FUCK is that not a sturdy construction! Especially the earcup rotators feels like they would snap under lightes presure, and the headband doesnt feel like its made to stretch across my head at all!

    Anyone else agree on this?

    On topic: Now that Im likely to return it, what headset / headphone + mic combo would you recommend @ 100-150$. Preferably with quality around the siberia v2s and I would also prefer if they were very durable! :)

    Ive been looking at the Zowie Hammer since it A: is cheap and B: VERY durable, but Ive heard the soundquality is lacking, so thats why Im kinda hesetating.

    Ive also looked at some cheap headphones and a decent mike. The Sony MDR XB500 looks very comfortable, but will a clipon mike be of the same quality as that on a dedicated gaming headset?

    Im using onboard sound on the Asus P8Z68-lx motherboard. :)
