  1. Release date ?

    I've heard some talk that they plan to release the beta in 3-4 months. So its still ways away, but just means more testing and tinkering! Still haven't been able to play the alpha that much during the testing times, but it looks like the games coming along great.
  2. Let's organize some events ??

    Night of Annihilation? Dare?
  3. Dirty Bomb Gameplay video

    I've been exploring the alpha a bit. Will try to report how it is when I have the time to sit down and play!

  7. Mouse Pads

    Ah yeah. I tried out the razer sphex too. When I first saw it I found it really interesting and when it came I was like uhhhhh. paper mouse pad? :DDD It is really nice and durable and I liked the backing too. Stuck to my wooden and glass surfaces fine.

  9. Mouse Pads

    I'll add more reviews when I get more time, but I thought this would be a useful resource for people who are in the market for a new mouse pad. First and foremost I am a gear freak. I've gone through a lot of mice as well as mouse pads because I like to try out different surfaces and textures. This goes for mice as well. In this blog I will give a short synopsis on the previous mouse pads I've used to give you an opinion of what I thought of them as well as the positives and negatives. I'll try to score them as fair as possible. Comments of your experiences are always welcome. Razer Destructor: 39.99 USD This Razer mouse pad has a very fine sand texture, which lasts for about 2-3 months.I bought this mouse pad a while back and after using it for about a month or so realized that the surface began to change. What will happen is that after playing games constantly it will begin to become slower and almost like you've sanded down the texture completely. I will say that the surface itself is amazing for the first couple of weeks, but if you are a heavy duty user then I wouldn't recommend this mouse pad to you. There is also a new edition I believe, but I haven't tried it. Overall I would give this pad a 3/10 Steelseries Qck Price: Approximately 14.99 USD This next mouse pad is the ever so popular Qck from Steelseries. This pad comes in numerous sizes as well as thickness. The one I will be reviewing is the Qck+. I've had this mouse pad for quite a while and have come to enjoy it a lot. I've used the Razer Deathadder, MX518, Intellimouse 3.0, and Steelseries Ikari Optical on it. All performed very well with no issues of skipping. The first thing that you realize when you use this pad is the size and the amount of room you have. The dimensions of this mouse pad is 400x450x4 mm. If you are a player who uses a low sensitivity and is looking for an affordable mouse pad then look no further. Even if you don't use a low sensitivity and are looking for a good mouse pad I would still recommend this one just so you have that extra space so you don't have to worry about running off your desk. One thing I've noticed is that this pad will begin to fray on the edges, but that won't happen for quite a while, but it lasts a long time and performs amazing for its reasonable price. My score for this mouse pad is 8/10 PureTrak Talent: 24.99 USD This is a very recent purchase because of a half off black friday deal. I've heard of this mouse pad for so many years, but never tried it. First thing you'll see is that there is a honeycomb pattern all over the pad. What Puretrak is saying is that by having this pattern it will increase the tracking of your mouse movements. I've been using it for about a week and I am pretty convinced or it might just be a placebo. I dunno. I will say that the surface itself is very smooth and from what I've heard it does last for many years without any wear or tear. Another nice thing is that it is machine washable in case you drop your food or spill your drink on it. I've only used my MX518 and Deathadder and both performed very well. Although I did notice that my Lift of Distance was a little higher on my Deathadder compared to other mouse pads like the Qck+ or QPAD CT. Score: 10/10 QPAD CT Price range: 3 Sizes 28.00-39.00 USD My first qpad ct was the grin version and I would say steer clear of this one. It was probably the pattern, but when I used my Deathadder and I wanted to make a quite jerk or turn I would find myself looking straight up or some abnormal angle. This got to a point where I didn't want to use it for fear of running into this problem constantly. I ended up trying the blue edition and I found no problems at all with it. The tracking on all my mice was flawless. Another thing to add is that this pad will come in a tube so be aware that it will take about a week or two to flatten out all the way. My friend thought it was a good idea to bend it the other way to help flatten it out and it ended up bending it making creases on it...The performance of the mouse pad itself is what I hoped for. The surface is soft like a cloth pad, but also very hard and stiff like a plastic mouse pad. It is a very comfortable combination and a great pad overall. Although after about 4-6 months you will notice that the speed of the pad will begin to deteriorate. This is due to extensive use and is bound to happen if used heavily. I would say that this is a great and amazing mouse pad, but the surface itself doesn't last forever. Score 7/10 Steelseries 5L: 39.99 USD This mouse pad is discontinued I believe, but if you can get your hands on one it is well worth the buy. The texture of this mouse pad is half and half. The first thing you will notice is that it has the rigidity of a plastic pad, but over the top there is a cloth layer. This allows the mouse pad to have a very stable feel that I have come to enjoy a lot. I've tried a range of sensitivities on it and saw no problems for low to high. The tracking is flawless and the surface itself provides a very smooth glide. I will say that after about a year or more you will begin to notice some fraying on the sides, but that is to be expected with cloth pads usually. The top layer is a thin layer of plastic as well and from my experience I think after time you will begin to see that it thins out. What I mean by this is that you will notice a slight decline of speed when compared to when you first bought the pad. I tried it using my MX518 and deathadder and the results were very positive showing no signs of problems. Score 8/10 Steelseries I-2: 39.99 USD This was a different experience for me. I had never tried or though of using a glass mouse pad, but I enjoyed it a lot. My overall opinion of this pad is pretty neutral. I enjoyed the smooth surface, but the scratching noise kind of annoyed me a little. Now, granted I didn't use it while playing games and using my headphones, but while I wasn't it was a little loud for me. Another thing to add is I noticed that my mouse feet didn't like them that much, which led me to switching them out. A few of the mice I tried were the Razer Deathadder, Logitech G400, and Steelseries Ikari. All of the except my Razer Deathadder tracked well. For some reason I couldn't get it to read the surface even though people said that it tracked the glass fine. I tried a lot of different sensitivities with it and would say that I preferred using a higher sensitivity because it was a smaller in size or else you would be running out of room constantly. One aspect of the I-2 is that it is easy to clean being glass. All you have to do is grab a wet cloth and wipe it down a little and your set. And the fact that this pad will last quite a long time and not lose its feel is yet another reason it is attractive. It also has gel dots on the back of it so it won't slip off of your desk. Score 6/10 Razer Sphex: 14.99 USD This mouse pad was very different than what I'm accustomed to. When I received it I was a little concerned about the backside and whether or not it would stick to my desk. The backside using a mini suction to adhere to surfaces. The pad itself is as thin as paper and can be somewhat in danger of possible tear or bending. I myself used this pad on a wooden desk and glass surface. When I tried it on the wooden desk and wanted to move it I realized that the pad had taken off some of the wood. This left a bump in my pad and therefore gave me an uneven surface when i used it on the glass pad. When I first tried using mice on it I enjoyed the surface a lot because of how smooth my mice glided across and tracked with ease. The surface itself has a very fine texture that will track both laser and optical mice. I never saw any signs of skipping. As far as sensitivity goes I would recommend using a high sensitivity as opposed to a low sensitivity just because you may be doing quick swipes and accidentally catch a mouse foot on the side. This happened to me a lot just because I wasn't use to the size, but I must have lifted the pad from the surface a dozen or so times. Overall i would recommend this pad if your looking for an affordable and compact mouse pad. Just be aware of how much space you may need so you don't keep lifting it up like I did. Score 7.5/10
  10. Can't wait for this and shootmania. Look very promising!
  11. New gaming mouse under £100/$150

    I would say go with something that you feel most comfortable with. If you are able to find a store that has displays set up you could go and see which mice fit your hand and go from there. Narrow down which ones will work for you and which won't. I would recommend going with wired as well. Even though there are new mice that promote having a high report rate of 1000hz I still would go for wired. Some personal experience from me is that I've used Logitech G5, Razer Deathadder(3G Vers., Black Edition, and 3.5G Version), Steelseries Ikari, Intellimouse 3.0 Explorer, MX518,G400, and Razer Imperator. Overall I would say I gravitated more towards the deathadder, MX518, and G400. Also be aware that some sensors that the mice may have issues like the z-axis on the imperator. Although it wasn't too much of an issue I wouldn't recommend the imperator. The feeling of it in your hand was a little awkward for me.Go for something reasonable and comfortable. Razer Deathadder: One of my favorite mice. Reliable and amazing. DPI: 450,900,1800(Avoid black version. Hard to grip) Steelseries Ikari: Fits your hand really well with its contours on the right. DPI: 400, 800,1600 Intellimouse 3.0: Very good mouse, very comfortable: DPI 400 MX518: Top favorite mouse, great sensor and very comfortable: DPI 400-1600(also 1800 vers) G5: Used this mouse a long time ago, but I liked it a lot. Very customizable and same shape as MX518/MX510: DPI 400-2000 G400: Same shape as MX510,MX518, and G5. Just an updated sensor from MX518. DPI 200-3600 Razer Imperator: Wouldn't recommend.I only used the old version so the new version may have fixed the z-axis issue. Hope this helps

  13. default DPI of standard mouse?

    Yeah. its usually around 600-800 dpi. 800 being more common.
  14. What puts you in "the zone"

    I have somewhat of a routine before I start playing games. I adjust a lot of my settings(sensitivity, resolution, drawgun, DPI etc). Kind of unconventional, but I feel weird if I don't for some reason. I also like to adjust my chair so I'm sitting straight, but I end up slouching a little bit almost always. Another part of my routine is making sure my keyboard is positioned sideways cause I find it more comfortable and have my mouse pad placed past my monitor. Last thing I do is make sure I'm calm cause if I start to get nervous or jittery I can't aim how I want to.
