Hey all!
Today I was wondering what (gaming-) mice most of the WoT community is using, so post here what mice you have used until now, post some pics of them and tell why you decided to grab a new one after some time!
Ill make the start:
My first gaming mouse was the Roccat Kone.
http://media.fragste...at_kone_2_0.jpg
After multiple problems with the mousewheel that didnt scroll correctly, I got a new one (warranty)
Some month later, the mousewheel broke down completey and the wheel sunk in and got stuck.
So I handed it in (again warranty) and got myself a Roccat Kone[+]

Again, problems with the mousewheel -.- This time, it wouldnt scroll correctly. I contacted the support and they told to get a new one with a special serial number. However, after 2 other Kones with mousewheel problems I decided to fuck it, opened the mouse (thus voided the warranty) and oiled the wheel. Done! No more problems with the wheel from that point on.
However, soon after that the laser went crazy, it just randomly jumps to the corner of the screen. Very annoying! On top of that, the laser is not compatible with the Roccat Alumic mousepad I got as it gets stuck on the color lines on it. In fact, every laser mouse is nit working properly on this pad. It even says on the packaging that it would be! Also, on the Roccat Taito cloth pad, the laser just jitters around when trying to aim for weakspots at long range, very annoying too.
So, after alot of problems with Roccat and its products, i decided to try out products of another brand. I didnt even want another mouse, I love the Kones, their design, their handling, but after all i didnt want to mess around with all these problems anymore.
So on Thursday, I got a Corsair M65:

Its shape is kinda similar to that of the Kones and it even has a nice sniper button on the side to reduce the DPI on the fly.
So far I am very impressed by it and dont regret getting it at all! Gonna get a corsair pad soon.
Now its your turn! Share your story!
And if someone form Roccat is reading this, improve your products and my next mouse ill gladly buy a Kone again next time!

The G600 from Logitech. Bought it on First-look event last year for a much lower price then normal.
Has 12 buttons to the side which i use for ammo and consumables in WoT. +2 buttons in the middle.
Also has a button to reduce DPI on the fly(button most on the left), middle big-button is the actual right mouse-button on this one.
I got everythign from logitech because it never gave me trouble with anything i got from them.
Not much history at this one besides i bought it on a special event after my software wasn't updated anymore.

I broke 4 logitech G5's and 1 Logitech G500 (for 1 desktop and 1 laptop). All of them broke where the wire comes out of the mouse.
I gave up on the G5 and went for two G400, I notice no performance difference, and it feels exactly the same. But the price is so much lower.
On my work laptop I got a Performance MX and man that's some awesome mouse, but haven't tested it yet for gaming, don't think it's that good for gaming.

Had the Logitech G400 for a long time. A pic was already sent by Tomyslav.
Now i moved up the ladder one step and since 2 weeks im a proud owner of a G500.
Its not as sophisticated as the G600, but still a masterpiece:
.
It has:
.
- a dual-mode scroll wheel, hyper fast spin or precision, precision is better for WoT  :playing:
- Adjustable sensitivity 200 - 5700DPI (3 steps)
- some programmable buttons
- weight tuning (up to 27 grams can be added)
.
I have 2 additional questions:
How is your ideal DPI adjustment for WoT? (5700dpi is a little too fast in my opinion)
Are there any known boundaries to supported DPI in WoT?
.
Edit: Thx Arkhell for posting the G500  :great:

Revoltec Fightmouse Elite. Most features of gaming mouse in one cheaper package, you pay for quality not big name manufacturer. Mouse is pretty rare though.
