The sensitivity paradox

#1JVC-spacePosted 12/1/2013 2:47:31 PM
3 month ago I changed my cursor sensitivity cursor cause for being at short, medium range with the Phase Rifle. So, that worked out but, my speed has been dropped, and the more distance is long, the more it's disabling. I watched Samu5 and Aisp sniping videos, and they are both very good in long distance especially in very long distances but and have problems with shorts distances.
So it's really a problem, Precision or speed ?

I'm certainly not an expert sniper, but I think I'm running only slightly higher sensitivity settings than the default. I think I compensated a bit for that change at long range by changing my deadzones as well.

After looking it up:

Turning Speed: 26
Cursor Sensitivity: 30

Deadzone is 224 x 246 (W x H)

I've actually changed them a few times, so I might be very close to the default values.

Again, these are pretty close to the defaults, and ultimately you'll have to settle on the sensitivity that is the best compromise for you. It is one of the shortcomings of the game that we don't have separate settings for scoped and non-scoped sensitivities, but I really don't think we need to make the PR any more powerful, so I'm ok with the compromise.

Don't worry. You're certainly one of he best out there.

Haha...

Thank you for the compliment. That means something coming from you. Unfortunately I lack consistency. I'm either on or off though. And when I'm "off," ugh, you do not want me on your team, LOL.

My cursor sensitivity is 10.
#10CHAINMAILLEKIDPosted 12/2/2013 12:41:32 AM
I don't see any reason why somebody should be able to use 100 for their cursor sensitivity at all times, assuming they have a hand rest.

Turning sensitivity/deadzones however have been something I've constantly been playing with.
GB to Hardcore, CQ to Sniping. Its hard to find something that really feels natural for everything you want to do.
