A quick question. In mouse settings under advanced, what does boost do in the current beta firmware/manager build?

Can someone also tell me what steady aim does?

Thank you.

Fighting the aim assist something awful. Using the ST with a g300s, 2500dpi and 40 hip. It loves to hover above their head or behind them when trying to adjust my aim. Making life miserable with phara and mccree mostly.

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

What they mean is the aim is smooth without jitters, and turning speed is decent. I don't think anyone can say aim assist is "fine" in this game.

It's the worst I experienced in a FPS so far, definitely wasn't prepared for it, and will make this game unplayable at the competitive/ranked level next month with hitscan/precision characters.

Unless we find a solution with a curve (which I wouldn't want for sniping, no acceleration please) or future versions of Steady-Aim.

Well, imho, it's not really unplayable since I usually get 60 - 80% scoped accuracy with Widowmaker. It's more like that while fighting my opponents I still have to fight the game and have to factor in what crappy move the game will pull next. The anticipation part is rather high due to all that aim assist.

At least that's how I feel.

Shooting at aim assist hats of noobs in quick play is one thing. But missing shots on a 14 year old reflex God in ranked play is another, I will be punished for it.

I see a lot of people lowering DPI and update frequency (polling rate).

Could anyone explain what they do, respectively? I wan't to try and finetune my DPI/polling rate, but individually, so I need to know what I should look for when changing it.

DPI = dots per inch

It's how many dots per inch of mouse movement your mouse can track.

hz = hertz

It's how often your mouse reads those mouse movement signals.

In theory I'd say the more the merrier but that's not how I felt about Xim4 and OW. DOOM on the other hand felt pretty good at 12k DPI and 1k hz, whereas OW felt like I was having constant epileptic shocks.

I personally lowered both DPI and hz and it's been way better. To each their own, tho. I'd suggest you keep tinkering around with these settings.

Thanks for reply, although I knew the difference between DPI and polling rate in technical terms. What I meant (and probably was unclear about) was that how do they FEEL/BEHAVE different? Like, how does higher DPI feel/behave vs lower, and respectively how does a higher/lower update interval change behaviour?

The easiest way is to try your max possible DPI + hz versus something lower. You will notice a difference right away and will instantly know which setting you prefer.

It's hard to explain how they behave. A picture is worth a thousand words, or in this case.. You get the idea.

Hey,

So I'm using a G502 at 12k dpi and 1k hertz with a hip sense of 20.

I still find hitting phara out of the sky hard to track, the mouse feels very inaccurate.

I'm on ST v2, could this be why?

what ST is everyone else running and are they having issues with vertical combat (i.e. hitting a phara as she's floating around (which is fairness should be an easy kill...)

thanks all

Try 6.400 DPI and 500 hz, you'll be surprised. ;-)

Don't forget to up your Xim sensitivity afterwards, tho..

I'm having a ton of trouble tracking targets at a lower dpi with a g300s. I'm hitting this magnetic forcefield instead of their true hitbox which seems to be caused by the aim assist.

Not sure if we might need a ballistic curve for this game to combat the aim assist? I wish there was a way to turn it off completely

Thanks again, but it seems as if I might not make myself clear.

I have tried lowering DPI+Hz. I have a g502 mouse with max 5700 DPI / 1000Hz polling. What I would like to know (if it's even possible to explain) is how it "should feel" if I play with 5700 DPI /500Hz instead, or how it "should feel" with e.g. 4000 DPI / 1000 Hz.

Yesterday I finished at 3000 DPI / 1000Hz, but it still doesn't feel 100%. Going to try 3500 DPI / 1000Hz today.

But yeah, any explanations as to what exactly it feels like with lower/higher DPI vs lower/higher Hz would be gratly appreciated :)
