Mouse acceleration
United Kingdom Mattthematt 
Built a new pc just over a year ago and started to get back into csgo after years of not playing. Just found out this whole time I’ve been playing with mouse acceleration turned it off and my aim feels super off. Should I just rock the mouse acceleration or learn to play without?

play with mouse accel
2019-03-19 13:27
It’s a tough one, played a few games without and I’m fragging fairly well but I can tell I’ve missed some shots I would’ve previously hit

Keep it off even if it takes a few weeks to get used to. You will never be great with mouse acceleration. Edit: Muscle memory is really hard with mouse accel since it's rather unpredictable

"You will never be great with mouse acceleration." There are lots of pro players using it

Lot of pro players who DID use it * Very few still in top 20 teams with mouse accel

source?

i know only one pro and its Xantares who is using it. 95% of pros playing without it.

you ever heard of the burden of proof philosophy? of course you haven't because ur 15 years old making up random shit on hltv, go do ur homework man
2019-03-20 20:04
I see no proof in that reply
2019-03-20 22:25
It's true that most good cs players avoid it, but I doubt it is impossible to get good at the game with it enabled. Many, if not most, quake professionals play with acceleration on. If a setting is used by a pro in quake, I don't think it's possible to be terrible at cs just because you're using that same setting in cs. A few of the mice that professional players used a while back had built-in acceleration (for example kinzu v1) yet the players using them were capable of competing at the highest level. I'd say that that's enough proof for the idea that you can be good even with acceleration enabled but it doesn't mean that you wouldn't play better in the long run with it disabled

It's like going on a mountain bike trail with a regular bike. Sure you can do it if you really are good. But why limit yourself to inferior equipment and settings?
2019-03-21 22:26
"It's like going on a mountain bike trail with a regular bike." You're simply assuming that playing with acceleration enabled is bad. The question is: will you be at a disadvantage in the long run if you play with mouse acceleration enabled? I don't see how your bicycle analogy sheds any light on this. You just said that if you have a worse setup, you'll do worse, which is just obvious. "But why limit yourself to inferior equipment and settings?" That's practically a loaded question because it is not a given that a setup with mouse acceleration enabled is inherently inferior to one where the setting is disabled
2019-03-22 12:03
It really is though. Mouse acceleration makes mouse movements more unpredictable and muscle memory harder to acquire.

Don’t know if I can be arsed
2019-03-19 13:30
there's no way to be consistent with accel
2019-03-19 13:31
Is that true tho, some people say you can get used to it
2019-03-19 13:49
yeah you get used to it, but its still not as accurate, cause the technology usually will alter the acceleration value a little
2019-03-19 13:51
Tabsen is playing with accel on on And some na players were using accel before. And about consistency.. I didn't change my settings for a very long time so i don't have issues with accel on to be consistent with awp etc. Problem begins when you will change something because of a few bad games where aim is the last thing that caused that. Look at byali for example. He is changing his settings after every match or even in game. Maybe he is not using accel, but still he is changing settings like a crazy and look how inconsistent he can be. I've always played with accel on (even in 1.6 and source) so i'm used to it, but i understand people who play without it.. I would play without as well, but i'm just too used to have accel on =D

i had accel on for a whole year after starting cs until my friend pointed it out. At first it was rough because i was almost back to stage one, but i'm proud of the improvements i was able to make after turning it off.

imagine driving a car with accel, how safe would that be? it's all about consistency and muscle memory, how would u be able to be consistent when everything is a little different with every swipe, it just doesnt make sense

good thing you don't drive cars with accel retard wtf is this comment
2019-03-20 01:54
chu mean bro? im talking about mouse accel in a cars steering wheel as an example
2019-03-20 02:25
Yeah cars with acceleration are bad mmkay
2019-03-20 15:33
so u telling me steering wheel has the same accel as a computer mouse?
2019-03-21 03:53
yes - most people use mice and steering wheel without accel :)))
2019-03-21 16:42
no shit sherlock, that's what i was saying and using steering wheel with mouse-like accel as an example of why people should not use it neither in mouse nor a steering wheel. smileyface
2019-03-21 17:29
Yes you are excellent at expressing your opinion in a precise and comprehendable manner.

try both and decide , you dont need to force yourself upon disabling mouse accel

senk you men)))
2019-03-19 14:42
If you have raw input inabled your windows settings dont matter.
2019-03-19 14:04
I had it had mouse acceleration on in my window settings too xD
2019-03-19 15:44
ever since i started playing with it i improved a bit easy flicks and tracking

+1 linear accel with a sensitivity cap is the best and (imo) only accel that should be used

400 dpi 0.78 sens for csgo in the povohat thing 1 sens 0.08 accel 2.6 sens cap anything above was too fast for me this allows me to go at max just over a 180 2 power rest unchanged

Lel I said sensivity cap but I thought about offset. I have 20 offset, sensivity cap 2 ofc. What about your offset ?

+1 i want to know too. And shipz is using windows or csgo accel?
2019-03-20 15:05
you could be fucked in non byoc environment. play without it better for muscular memory anyway
2019-03-20 15:24
Why would he be fucked in non byoc environment?

I didn’t know i had mouse accel in for like my first 2 years of playing cs and once it found out i had it on i turned it off and got used to it pretty fast
2019-03-20 15:49
You would be more consistent without mouse acceleration. Taco, AleksiB, NBK, Xantares, tabseN, swag, tenzki, flOm, hazed, Calyx, fnx, seangares and Natosaphix are using it though.
2019-03-20 15:50
play with it men if it feels better
2019-03-21 16:43
I used to use mouse accel and did amazing with it i tried to turn it off and get used to no mouse accel and now im even worse

I did the same in 1.6 but I used quite low sens with mouse acc it worked out pretty good. but I turned it off and learned to play without it and I got better with time
