Hi guys, I am pretty new here and wonder what sort of - cheapish - mouse I should buy  as I am only using a standard type which seems fairly inaccurate at aiming etc.

Wot isn't really mouse dependent(nothing is actually, imo), I'm using the "give me the cheapest most durable one, m8" type of mouse, and I haven't found any problems with it so far.

which seems fairly inaccurate at aiming etc.

You might wanna look into upgrading(or getting a new) the tank then.

Thanks for coming back. I take it you are a keyboard guy then! Does keyboard use give the fine movements required especially on the firing front?

Hi mate

 

If your having mouse problems it might not be the mouse quality itself??

 

On your battlescreen go to 'options'/'settings' and try adjusting the mouse sensitivity as this might help a little?

Thanks, and I do use mouse and keyboard but find the mouse movement on distance targets very difficult. I will try adjusting it again.

Try a zoomX mod, it will make your life a lot easier. I personally can't live without it.

I think what your looking for is a mouse that is smooth, responsive and has DPI on the fly.

 

ignore the guys above your mouse and mouse mat is the single most important piece of hardware for gaming assuming you have good fps. it is the link between you and the PC. If it isnt working for you then your not working!

 

what is your budget? IMO the features that will give you the edge will cost you around £30 the R.A.T. 3 starts at that figure and upwards.

 

use google and try to find a laser or optical mouse with DPI change. you wont need anything over 3000 so dont worry if its less but more wont hurt.

Get a used Logitech MX518 or G400, or if you want a new one, G400s. they're basically all the same, different generations only. I have the G400 (bought it slightly used for 20€) and it's pretty much everything you need from a mouse. Feels good in the hand, you can change DPI on-the-fly and it's responsive.

 

As for the keyboard, it's not THAT important in gaming, but you'd generally want one that can register multiple keystrokes simultaneously.

LOGITECH G300 Optical Gaming Mouse is what I use,  has 9 buttons that you can configure for any game, works well with W.O.T.

 

Not a bad mouse really, all depends on how much cash you want to spend.

 

Good luck

i'm using a wireless microsoft mouse, the delay is noticable but I haven't had any problems so far. it's just that if you have a nice surface any mouse works much better (my mouse works better on the table than on the mousepad..)

Personally, i use the Razer Imperator 2012 model, I've had it for almost 2 years now & it's great.

It cost about £80 when i got it, as is was new, but i think they can probably go for about £50 now.

Good buy.

Logitech gaming mouses are nice and cheap and absolutely worth looking into

 

 

G-300 as stated before has 9 buttons, nice to make simple key macros like left mouse button spam/right mouse button spam for Semi automatic weapons in FPS games (firing a Carbine will be a blast i tell ya!) it's responsive and has 4 different setups with a button to switch between them (marked by color)

Overall it's a very configurable mouse you can do a LOT with

 

Bad things are: Confusing layout, you'll occasionally hit the wrong buttons or switch between modes by mistakes when trying to adjust DPI

It's an Ambidextrous mouse (useable by both hands) You'd think it's a good thing but it only makes it feel a bit hollow and uncomfortable

It feels too light

It's very small (i have small hands and it feels uncomfortably small, palm touches the desk which i don't like)

And it's ugly

 

 

G400 on the other hand is even better in my opinion

It has a much more robust feel to it, it feels heavy and sturdy which i like and it fits nicely in your hand. It's big and comfortable.

It doesn't have the programmable buttons, but next to your thumbs are 2 extra buttons that (with some programming skills) can be reprogrammed to act as macro buttons instead of browser back-forward as they are on default (rather useless in my opinion so i always rewire them to spam buttons)

The dpi adjustment buttons are much easier to reach and adjust without having to look at the mouse, one above the wheel for faster scrolling, one below the wheel for slower scrolling. Feels perfect like this.

 

Bad things are: Flimsy wiring. I've killed 2 of these, and while i hope that my g300 dies soon so i can buy a new g400, but it just won't break which annoys me (i guess i'll have to try and sell it second hand).

The wire is quite easily broken, or rather it's badly attached to the mouse, one really bad pull and it's gonna lose responsiveness.

The mouse buttons will eventually die as well. After 3 years or so.

 

But it's still worth it. really really worth it. Best mouse i ever had was g400 and they always go for somewhere around 40€

G400 is awesome... and mine was only 13€. I've seen them for less than 20€ in electronic stores quite frequently.

heh, nice that someone read it :)

 

Anyways yeah. G300 is best if you play much rpg/mmorpg games (like WoW if you want to do skill combos and stuff with just 1 click) and switching between modes is useful (like you play different heroes or games, one click and you have an entire different setup selected, and the LED light is actually kind of pretty in the dark (like LAN parties) (dark, red, blue or green depending on what mode is active)

 

And like you said. No problem running it. The logitech gaming utility you use to program it is very easy to learn and the mouse seems to last forever without breaking so +points for build quality.

 

 

 

G400 is more of a pure shooter mouse. You can do some serious sniping with it and then go berserk with a shotgun no problem. adjusting the sensitivity with up and down buttons is very helpful (many other gaming mouses out there that adjust this using only one button, just going up and loop 500->1000->1500----->500->1000->1500----> and so on. this can get annoying. 2 buttons ftw!)

 

 

 

Like i said before both are great but they are much different even if it's just one number telling them apart :)

 

 

 

 

 

I've also played with the Razer deathadder. It's ok. But overpriced. If i wanted an overpriced mouse i'd choose Steelseries over this any day.
