I have bought Logitech MX Hamster 3, which is wireless, ergonomic (and my hand is indeed more comfy now) and has a second scroll wheel, and I am wondering what that second wheel can be set to in WOT, has anyone firsthand experience/ideas?

Lioncast LM20, cause it has 3 thumb buttons.

Not really sure how this is gameplay related, but if you wanna git gud you have to play with trackpad anyways, all pro gamers use trackpad in wot.

Let me know, mine was 10 euro in 2007, not even wireless.

 

Don't think it matters for WoT.

Did you buy it because of the "hamster" name? :unsure:

Mine is a normal 2 button+wheel not wireless (i f00kin hate wirless, why should i be concerned about batteries when i can go with a normal cable???)
I should buy a more fancy one btw, it would help a lot in gaming.

I just wanted a good wireless mouse, my previous one was wired, it was good but tired after a decade and the wire was getting on my nerves/

Just a simple wired Logitech mouse.

I've used a rat 7 for the past 6ish years, not because I need too but I like a large heavy mouse and I've had 2 break and be replaced under warranty.  I wouldn't buy another as the sensor quality is awful but I am concerned about finding another that suits my claw style.

 

2nd scroll wheel.......inset mind blown meme here......wow

Kone Aimo - nice and heavy and good ergonomics for me as it fits my hand well.

I'm using ADX gaming mouse.

 

The mouse can switch between 5 different profiles, individual macros and key sequences.

 

In some games you use mousewheel 1 to zoom and mousewheel 2 to scroll between weapons.

 

I haven't found any use for mousewheel 2 in WOT.

an Asus RoG Spatha. big and heavy, but few mice ever fit my hand!

 

I generally use it in wireless mode, and, its a lovely bit of kit.

I recommend a wired mouse… with the ADX you can get up from 400 dpi to 8200 dpi resolution (extremely accurate).

I am not experiencing any accuracy/latency issues when playing with this wireless Logitech, although reviews clearly state that this is not a gaming mouse. But it is fine for playing if your monitor is 60 Hz and not 144 Hz.

Picked up a G502 SE Hero for 40€ a couple months ago.

 

I guess the only fancy thing about it is the extra weights you can use for balancing...oh, and a "sniper" button...oh, and infinite scroll.

 

Word of warning though, if anyone ever gets one, keep your hand sweat-free...the bit of rubber behind the sniper button, a place where you'd rest your thumb, likes to gather a lot of sweat and gets dirty easily...so clean it regularly. You'll have to, otherwise you'll feel an odd burning sensation on the tip of your thumb after a while... I wish that bit was plastic.

 

It's a brilliant mouse honestly.

 

I was looking at an Asus ROG Gladius II Wireless but then the G502 went on sale and...I think I can live with grabbing this at half the price of a good wireless mouse.

 

Spoiler

Get modern wireless? Mine has 54 hour uptime and "zero" latency.

 

I have G502 Lightspeed. Sensor and battery are amazing but the buttons are [edited]garbage and really bad quality. This will be my 3rd one i RMA. Logitech really wanted to save few pennies when they started using this crap switches which double click often and cant be held down without early release (for qpranger the wording).

140€ mouse which breaks like Chinese toy

Main mouse is a ROG Spatha both wireless and wired ( last 8 months , good but expensive) but then again whole system is ROG  . 

but best and longest lasting mouse is a "zalman-knossos-zm-gm4"  great solid gaming mouse for the money. ( actually bought another spare 3 years ago and it's still in the box unopened) . Old mouse is on backup pc and working 100% . If you can pick one up , lucky you.

Madcatz M.M.O.7 .     Pure garbage . scroll wheel kept going awol on 2 and both were replaced and failed same way .( Customer support is worse than teir 8 MM)

I’ve got an original MX518 which seems to have become the hipster mouse of choice.

in the same boat as you there :P

ive had my Spatha for 2 years~ now, and the only wear and tear I can see is my thumbgrip below the side buttons has worn away and the underside is beginning to discolour (no longer the shiny aluminium it once was!) 

I do use it everyday though, for many hours, so, it has lasted well so far.

 

I had a bunch of Madcatz mice as well.. 1 I admit I killed by dropping my tea on it, but, the others the sensor's went, or the scrollwheel… great mice, but I never got one to last more than a year. for the price that was just bad quality. I don't know what the new Madcatz firm's equipment is like however, as the current Madcatz is the revived brand under new ownership (as far as I am aware)

 

I had a Gamdias Zeus for a while, which was a good mouse for a brand id never heard of. felt nice in the hand and was adjustable for weight. the RMB went in the end after about year and a half, but it lasted far longer than the madcatz one's ever could.....

Zowie FK2, Its amazing for shooting games, especially CS. But also works pretty well on WoT, 2 mouse buttons on each side of the mouse, pretty good to put a Push to Talk and something else ( Auto-Aim in my case )
