If you have a mouse that cost less than $100, you can't be a pro gamer. Period.

Any mouse that's that expensive is going to be a wireless/hybrid laser mouse, probably made by Razer. AKA a piece of garbage.

If you actually care about the best sensor you can get, the most expensive one of those would either be the Roccat Kone XTD Optical, which isn't out yet but might have a flawless sensor, and is supposed to be around $99 I think, or the Zowie FK1 which is probably around $80 though I can't be arsed to look it up. The Roccat Kone Pure Optical is around $70, G400S is around $40-50, and the DeathAdder is cheap if you're willing to put up with Razer's s***** build quality.

a mouse is a mouse, buying a gaming mouse is incredibly stupid

yes because i need a mouse with high precision movement, pinpoint cursor accuracy, near-perfect molding for the best grip, a thousand buttons for just 4-5 control inputs, and glowing neon lights to play a video game "professionally"

My mouse has 12 buttons on it. It took time getting used to but I like avoiding using the keyboard for anything but the arrow keys.

Sometimes I feel like just using my mouse and arrow keys on a keyboard to play a game and sometime I feel like the xbox 360 controller.

Interesting.. So by your logic , the equipement you have defines how "pro" you are.

Unfortunately my friend , humans are not gear dependent like your world of warcraft character.

Your mouse could be worth 200 or 600 bucks , i could still kick your *** in bf4 with the mouse i found in the dumpster 2 weeks ago.

So you're mad because he has more money than you?

Get over it.

Late response but why would I be mad? I get to use it whenever I come over or I am watching his house when he is at work...

I don't really agree with the fact that he overpays for somethings but that is his right as is everyone else's. I will say don't be stupid and buy expensive things just because they are expensive actually do research and get the best quality for your money.

Mouse? The only games I play online (namely fighting games) don't use one.

Obviously, the TC is just trying to rile people up, but what I don't get is why so many non-professional gamers in here are offended.

Like, if someone comes up to me and says "Lol, you can't be a professional gamer with that gear," I can comfortably respond "well, I'm NOT a professional gamer, so I don't really care."
