I play on 5 2350 elo it’s your fucking preference but the only thing with high sens you won’t be as accurate when making slight adjustments
2018-09-07 21:31
surely your dpi has to be really low or rly low windows sens

Na 2 is probably the most consistent sens you can have i mean i'm an entry / awper so 5 sens is perfect for me but as i'm 14 for example in high panic games i worry and as high sens my hands start shaking :/ and at 2350+ elo most games are close
2018-09-07 22:58
Yea, normal sens is like 1-5 to 3. I feel like if i played on your sens it would just strain my hand muscles so much since it would require such tiny and precise movements with your hand to be accurate on that high of a sens. I'm guessing you barely move your arm that much when aiming since one small swipe is like an 180.

idk it pointless using sens below 5 anyways
2018-09-07 21:31
I was s1 with high sens, then I switched to low and I got ak almost immediately afterwards. But it's personal.

low sens pros = easier to be consistent, healthier for your wrists long term, ez long range aim cons = spray control arguably harder, 180 turns not as easy (not really important though)

those are not full 180 turns, it's not hard to turn 90-100 degrees and turn back with low sens. When I said 180 turns I meant turning full 180 because someone is shooting you in the back.
2018-09-07 21:36
Low sens is 1.4-2 or 1.2-1.7 should be like?
2018-09-07 21:36
I prefer 1.7 but I have played on 2.0 and 1.4. you have to find a sens that works for you. If it doesn't feel right after 10 minutes in deathmatch it's probably not for you.
2018-09-07 21:36
ppl say deatmatch is the best way to find sensitivity or something it is really true or not? thx
2018-09-07 21:42
IDK I mean you have to realize ffa dm can be frustrating when you get killed multiple times in a row spawning so it will be hard adjusting to a different sens but it's the easiest way to practice many quick engagements with enemies, and youll see how your wrist/arm/fingers feel after moving them a lot on a particular sens. After you try a new sens on ffa try a retakes server or something to see how it feels. It's not just about the aiming but how the sens feels with movement.
2018-09-07 21:46
I did play so much ffa dm so many top fragger but, when i go to mm i'm sucks :p
2018-09-07 21:48
because 5v5 cs is not only about aim also timings, reading your opponents, movement, etc

idk what you mean by that "modified m_yaw" but you'll probably get used to it within 2 weeks
2018-09-07 22:31
like when I played about 900h into cs, i thought that spraying is way hard for me, like I can't pull mouse down like that. I was trying to find solution. m_yaw bsicaly is x/y sens ratio.

healthier for your wrist low sens? dafuq makes no sense it should be opposite
2018-09-07 21:47
higher sens requires more fine control with your wrist and fingers. Low sens allows your wrist and fingers to remain loose and relaxed = less strain on the muscles.

low sens=u have to move your hand more no? and flick faster
2018-09-07 21:49
moving your hand more yes but trust me your wrist & finger muscles are much more relaxed than playing with a wrist-aiming high sens.
2018-09-07 21:50
It is just muscle memory, like ppl playing with 1620 dpi 2 sens w0xic's using but he knows how can he control his mouse that's a could be a reason.
2018-09-07 21:52
depends on what kind of playstyle you have, what role you play

shit fuck playing 400 dpi raw input 1.3 it's ok to turn away from flashes it's a problem only for those who move their fucking mouse 3 cm to the left and to the right and saying that they can't turn away.
2018-09-07 21:41
I'm playing on 400 dpi @ 0.8 in-game sensitivity 😄 Btw my mouse pad is qck heavy.

Atm I play 3 sense 500 dpi. I'm lvl 8. A great advantage of high sense is the bigger velocity clearing corners, turn away from flashes, flicking and doing 180's when someone is killing you from behind. I think low sense is Great to play passive cause is very easy to hold angles and make small corrections. A negative side of high sense is when you take a break from the game (holidays, etc) and it feel very inconsistent. I used to play 3.8, but after 3 weeks holidays it felt really weird and fast so I switched to 3.
2018-09-07 21:44
1.7 sens after 4 months break i played 15 mins of aim_botz and wasnt worse than before

That's a low sense, so a break doenst affect your aim as much as you were playing high sense.

the only con of low sens is that you wont be able to turn around as fast as you would with high sens other than you will get better aim replacement as the time went by
2018-09-07 21:51
3.5@400, I used to play low sensitivity (1.5-1.8) but i finally understood that lower sens gives nothing in return, even precision.
2018-09-07 21:54
Low sens = accuary,much control your mouse,good crosshair placement. Cons=Can't easily turn 180° you need to be fast.Retake is painful you need to turn your mouse much. imo
2018-09-07 22:00
So you say that you can't have good crosshair placement on high sensitivity or accuracy? I just agree with that low sens gives you more control, that's all.
2018-09-07 22:08
For wrist yes is medium and good xhair placement accuracy but for arm it is high.
2018-09-07 22:09

2018-09-07 22:02
wrest player (high sens) or hand player (lowsens) wrest player aim is insane& flick hand players recoil control
2018-09-07 22:03
imo no such thing, every player uses arm and wrist for larger and smaller adjustments, why would you only use half the options you have to control your mouse?
2018-09-07 22:12
Some people actually play with only their wrist, even for 180s and shit, it's insane.

i lowered i got into supreme, but wasnt comfortabel with movement got high again (1660 eDPI) and aiming is much more comfotable, only con is very long range, but you can get used to it, so i call high sens is better for me (i played 1900 hours with low, but after changing to high i am better)
2018-09-07 22:03
high sens = easier to track enemies when they swing wide or adad close range low sens = easier to track enemies when they peek at long range so it depends on which engagements you are good at and what trade off is best for you also hand size, arm length, screen size, mousepad size, mouse weight, sensor accuracy
2018-09-07 22:11
Major con of low sens is that you need to know where your enemy is before you even think about shooting (with higher sens you can sort of improvise I think you understand what I mean), so if you're Solo Queuing (aka bad com, people don't call where they die from accurately etc..) then I don't think it's a good option, it will take you a lot of effort for a result very similar to higher sens. Also it's a bit of a myth that you'll get better long range accuracy, at long range RNG really comes into play so whether you're exactly on the target or 1mm on the side it's basically the same (10/10 accurate maths). Another major con is that it hugely slows down your rotation movements (don't worry I wont talk about turning away from flash) which means sharp turns and bhops are harder to pull off. This is more important than you may think because good aim but bad movement is awful and you'll die a lot from it. You really need to find a balance.
2018-09-07 22:12
even outside accurate range youll have a higher chance of hitting the target if you aim dead on. the head is a circle. your spread is also a circle. and the bullet spread isnt uniform distributed, they are more likely to go closer to the center of your spread than at the edge
2018-09-07 22:15
You have a little higher chance to be exactly on the guy's head yes I know that but it's not a major improvement at all (with high sens you can be exactly on his head too anyways), long range fights involve a fuck ton of factors that you can't control (the tiniest movement of the opponent makes a big difference and is super hard to predict) so adding a tiny bit of control isn't a big pro. Sure it's a bit better but the fact that you'll have other drawbacks like how you basically have to bait hard on anti ecos if you don't want to die instantly blows dick and is more likely to lose you rounds IMO.
2018-09-07 22:25
as long as the enemy head is within your spread the difference is small yeah. i feel like it was easier to see when enemies changed direction with the old animations. on anti ecos if your team has their head out of their asses and no one takes close range fights alone you can play with low sens. you can have a usp or a deagle and play super long range fights only. or go midrange with smgs, spraying is easier with lower sens. its okay if you can only turn 120 or even 90 degrees if youve got ppl covering your flanks. in pugs with ppl you cant rely on i wouldnt recommend super low sens. my minimal sensitivity is where i can still do a 180 to either side when my mouse is in the middle of the pad, so basically a 40, 45cm 360, because someone can just randomly pop up behind you sometimes when ppl arent watching the flank or their smokes.
2018-09-07 23:10
Well I guess there's low sens and then there's LOW sens. For some time I tried to take on a support role, kinda laid back, peeking but not entrying etc etc. To go along with it I lowered my sensitivity massively, somewhere around that of GuardiaN, but the problem then becomes that you need a ridiculously good muscle memory because your movements become so accurate that you need to have a perfect aim basically. In short your play style will end up being heavily limited by your sensitivity. During that time I saw a huge dip in my clutching ability, I can only assume that it's because it becomes incredibly difficult to play in situations where you cannot predict what your opponent will do. However I did see an increase in consistency, as in I went from "sometimes pretty decent, sometimes shit" to "consistently barely average". With a higher sensitivity (my current one is something like 1500 DPI and somewhere around 1 sens in game I don't remember) I feel like I can work on my movement and my positioning a lot more, putting myself in advantageous positions instead of constantly relying on the fact that I can rather consistently aim at long range. So maybe a huge part of it came from my inability to properly take advantage of that sensitivity but now that it's higher I really feel like my overall performance has massively improved and I'm really not that inconsistent anyway. I can still hit long range shots almost as consistently (as I said IMO too many factors come into play for long range to be about low sens = better accuracy), I am generally speaking more versatile (I soloQ 99% of the time so I can never assume that I will be able to play a specific role before the match started) and I can play without being constantly harassed because "all I do is trade and/or die every round" (if you just look at the kills that's true, and people who think they're good only ever look at the kills, which is everyone in MM)
2018-09-08 00:23
PS: When I said "you need to have a perfect aim basically" I meant that when compared to a higher sens. Let's look at Kjaerbye's shaky aim for example, why can he shake like that and still be up there in the HS % ranking? Because there's a huge margin of error when it comes to how good your brain is at guessing where the enemy's head will be when you will shoot your next bullet considering the average human has a reaction time around 200ms. Your control over your aim becomes almost useless because it's more accurate than you can actually use it. Which means that giving away a bit of that "unnecessary" control in favor of better movement etc ends up being mainly beneficial A lot of what I say is possibly bullshit based solely on my experience but I'd like to think that you get what I'm trying to say.

Actually pretty good points I'm also along that line of thinking that "mid" sens (like ~1500) is all-around the best

0.65 1200dpi Sometimes seems really fast sense and sometime later very slow sense
2018-09-07 22:14
Ppl who can play with high sens are almost always more advantageous cause its better to flick around or to look down on the ground to evade shots. Low sens is better aim if your crosshair is near someone's head but its a disadvantage on flicks and fast movements. Low sens is for ppl like me who move the mouse too much while flicking.

you consider 1200 edpi high sens?
2018-09-08 13:13
depends on your sensitivity in the game
2018-09-08 16:09
if you use 1 sensitivity with 1200 DPi this would be the same as 3 with 400 DPi
2018-09-08 16:11
yes thats what edpi means, effective dpi, dpi*sens, you can also use cm/360 notalent.org/sensitivity/sensitivity.htm
2018-09-08 18:17
low sens = low iq
2018-09-08 01:54
high sens = high iq ?
2018-09-08 13:46
I mean if you already have good aim and you're young and quick you should use high sens. But if you are a guy with bad aim, often chokes you need to play with low sens and low sens is generally better for older people.
