Prem / Invite mouse settings

27 Frags +

Hello.

A couple of weeks ago I had the idea to record information about mouse settings for all of the top players in European and American TF2. I'm not terribly interesting in imitating the sensitivity of players, but I just remember reading an article about different pros' settings on ESReality and thinking it was interesting and that someone should try to gather similar information for TF2.

Unfortunately, what with teams being slow to get back to me and being busy myself with other things I never got around to writing an article. However, I'm going to now make public the raw data recorded, so people can check it out themselves and draw any interesting inferences if they wish.

Here it is -- https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AoXEN9ZAogzVdG9lODVQaHFSVEl6ZS1XN091a0lMR2c

Note: [/i]Players change sensitivities and so on all the time. This is meant as more of a snapshot than a definitive answer to "hey cookye what sens do you use". Additionally, many of the settings for American players were taken from their twitch.tv channel info panes. Thanks for supplying this information so readily! You can also publish your equipment info in your TFTV profile.

Cheers.

PS. If any players felt there was an expectation of privacy of their settings which I'm somehow violating, lmk and I can take you off.

PPS. This is your "PREM - by CUBE" daily dose reminder.

Are you sure your data is valid? Because think clockwork and enigma are using the WMO.

enigma changed, idk about clckrwrk - br0 weren't very responsive, just going on what I saw him using at i46.

enigma might well have changed back to the WMO since when I asked him, but this is only meant as a snapshot after all. If I were to actually keep these up to date it would be a full time job :p

Also, I tried to bother as few people as possible while doing this since I know questions about sensitivity are probably a source of irritation for a lot of top level players. So if there was information published in a thread somewhere from a while back I just went with that rather than hassling them. This means it's meant to be less "they're all using these settings right now and more like "they once used these settings" or something along those lines.

Really stupid statistics time, yay!

Overall (in/360)
Avg = 9.8571428571
Std = 6.240647727
Min = 1.818
Max = 35.511

Scouts
Avg = 15.0093333333
Std = 7.5183425113
Min = 5.682
Max = 35.511

Soldiers
Avg = 7.66025
Std = 3.5195940686
Min = 1.818
Max = 13.636

Demomen
Avg = 7.6036
Std = 4.4032866311
Min = 2.406
Max = 15.734

Medics
Avg = 6.573875
Std = 2.9241496169
Min = 2.886
Max = 10.12

Take from this what you will, small sample size but maybe a decent starting recommendation when picking a new sens.

Look at thos STDS for Overall and Scouts, nothing can be inferred there. But for Soldiers and Medics I think this data is pretty helpful

clorgwhat did you use to calculate these?

in/360 = (360/(0.022*dpi*sens))

assuming m_yaw of 0.022 unless told otherwise (don't think I ever was)

alfunksoLook at thos STDS for Overall and Scouts, nothing can be inferred there. But for Soldiers and Medics I think this data is pretty helpful

On the contrary, it shows that Scout can be played at a high level with both high and low sensitivity.

including the sensitivity numbers for people who use mouse accel is pretty useless in the stats. like blaze's "13" inch 360 which in reality plays nothing like 13 inches.

Not that it even matters but my mouse is actually steelseries sensei and ingame sens is 1.2, So around ~10 inch 360. I dunno how mx518 got there, havent used it in like 3 years

you're misreading boomer's sens as blaze's m8
