Out of the Blue

Like most gaming mice, mine features on-the-fly DPI switching through a couple of dedicated buttons behind the scroll wheel. This is a feature I never intentionally use, and I have always assumed that this is for players on a higher level (which is probably correct) for changing sensitivity while sniping or during delicate maneuvers. For me it's always been a random surprise when I accidentally change DPI while at work or play. I was watching a stream from Gamescom with MFPallytime and DunkTrain where DunkTrain helped Pally fix a sensitivity issue and said this is a feature he always shuts off on his mice. It actually made me feel silly for waiting until hearing that to disable it on mine, since it's so obvious, but I guess was holding out hope that I would suddenly become a pro-level player and take advantage of it. All it took was an actual pro saying he didn't like it to make me feel free to turn it off. I feel like such a sheep.

I don't care for the idea of DPI switching. DPI should always be at the highest to yeild more control. What should be switched is how much turning should be done per high resolution dot. I had a zoom script in Quake where the lower the fov the lower the turn speed, something like 3-4 levels.
