I thought it would be better to have a dedicated thread for ppl to post their OW settings, sensitivity, ballistic curves, etc.

Mist/Obsiv, can you let us know what DPI, Xim sensitivity, and ads speed/delay you use? Thanks in advance.

I don't use curves. For OW I'm not using any boosts right now

1000hz polling, 3600 dpi mouse

All in-game sensitivities maxed

Xim hip sensitivity - 33
Xim ADS sensitivity (with a 200 delay so characters like Lucio and Roadhog aren't interrupted using their alternate fire) - 22

Nothing else changed from default (haven't tried aim assist).

Hip feels very good for me right, Widowmaker still feels off for me, I will be tweaking that sensitivity a few more times

Default works pretty good.

Have a g502, forget the DPI atm.

I actually put a slight curve on hip, made it dip a bit in the beginning, not everyone's style but it kinda worked for me.

I use default aswell. IVe got a razer deathadder at 10k dpi but no matter how low I put the sensitivity in the manager it always tells me it's going too fast. It doesn't really feel like that and even if I put sensitivity on 1 and the turn speeds are slow in game it still blinks as the turn speed is "too high" anyone else got this?

Once I'm back home I will try using 6400 DPI + 500 hz instead of 12k DPI and 1k hz.

I like to believe that 12k DPI + 1k hz is just too much and way too touchy. We'll see..

yup. I'm going to try to lower my DPI down to 6000-6500 range.  I switched to a curve someone posted in another thread, it has very heavy acceleration.

I never really used a curve before - however, after switching to the curve I'm not hitting the red lights less at least on micro-movements. I noticed I was getting red lights even on small movements at times. I never had that issue before. Now my hook accuracy with Roadhog is a bit higher.

Can't decide on 6,400 or 8,200 DPI
1000Hz
Hip sensitivity 15
in-game settings maxed
Widow's maker in game zoom sensitivity set to 0

Using 6400 DPI and 500 hz now instead of 12k DPI and 1k hz and it seems to be working MUCH better.

Xim HIP sensitivity: 10
In-game sensitivity: max
Relative zoom sensitivity: 0

Still trying to figure out whether to use steady aim or not.

I'm running 12k@1000hz and Xim @20, anything less than that and it feels unresponsive and esp. playing tracer turns into a real "low-sense-mouse-worker" chore ^^ I never used steady aim before, what does it actually do btw?

Can someone explain to me the logic behind lowering DPI vs lowering Xim sensitivity (aside from quickly changing sensitivity in-game for e.g. sniping)? I was under the impression that maxing ingame sensitivity and mouse DPI, while adjusting only the Xim sensetivity, should produce the best results, as it would allow for the fastest movement with the most precise tracking of your inputs.

For the people saying it works so well... I'm at a loss.

Lowering the DPI and Tick Rate helped getting rid of some of the stuttering but I still get excessive aim assist when I look in the general direction of an enemy.

For comparison, Destiny has aim assist but it is far less intrusive than The Division and Overwatch.

At this point, I might just try to play the game with a controller and try to compare how the game feels.

I agree with this post.  High DPI and poll rate increase the mouse jitter.  Aim Assist - not as bad as BO3 running a vanilla curve.

I am actually running RML's latest BO3 curve (standard one not the full SMG aggressor curve).

Full credit to RML - but his curve is the bomb for low sensitivity players.  As mentioned, I agree that low DPI is better in Overwatch so this curve fits in really well and really allows freedom of mouse movement (combat AA etc).

My settings:

4000DPI on SS Rival mouse.
500hz polling.
HIP sens at 44 as it seems to work well with the 4000DPI mouse setting.
In game sens options to full.
X/Y ratio at 0.85 as per RML's BO3 settings to allow vertical stability - but to be honest OW does not feel as fast as BO3 so aiming for the head is not that bad.  I also tried a 1.00 X/Y which made vertical movement snappier but to be honest I am yet to decide what to go for (maybe pending hero selection?).
I am also still experimenting with boost with a 250 figure seems to work well and provides some much needed initial acceleration.  I would not exceed 500 though as it feels really weird because of the turn cap.

Oh sorry, forgot to mention - I figured I'd try these settings on Soldier 76 since he best represents your standard COD type of character and I found it easier to compare the differences when using RML's curve.

I use this with 8,200 at 500 hz.
It's a fantastic set. for me.
