Having used nothing other than Razer Diamondbacks since 2005, it's hard to imagine using anything else for gaming. However, the scroll wheel of my last properly working one is starting to act up and it's probably time to look for something new.
Have anyone got any recommendations for a replacement? My requirements are:
  • Durable
  • Wired
  • Two buttons on the side (m4+m5)
  • Relatively low height
  • No random bits on the sides you're supposed to rest your fingers on or whatever

The sword and the faith

I recently picked up a Glorious PC Gaming Race Model O.

The mouse itself is low, light, and has the best tracking I've ever used full stop. I've had flagship mice from just about any top brand you can think of (SteelSeries, Razer, Logitech, ect) and nothing even comes close. The last mouse I had that felt this good was the Ideazon Reapers Edge which became discontinued after SteelSeries bought the company. Once my original Reaper started to have clicking issues I was once again without a proper mouse and nothing I tried in the YEARS of interim was even a suitable equal to it, with the Model O being a decisive upgrade overall.

I cannot recommend this mouse enough.

If you have any concerns about the honeycomb cutouts, don't. You get used to them fairly quickly.

I see its up to 72$ whereas I paid about 60$ for mine. I still think its a good value at that price.

I have the Logitech G MX518 Legendary. It's a remake of "the best gaming mouse ever made" (so they say). I like it a lot. It's like the G400 which I used for almost 8 years prior to getting this one. Very comfortable, lightweight, and precise, and it doesn't have a million useless buttons on it.

Just ordered a Glorious mouse. It's the closest to the Diamondback when it comes to shape. Never really liked Logitech's mice and the Deathadder is a bit too bulky for my liking.
Got it for 549 NOK ($60) plus shipping, so not too bad :)
Thanks for your input everyone!

sraw531 shouted: is there an "easy" (without modding/EUD) way to make flying command centers have a movement speed of ~0 when trying to fly, but can still land/lift?
Funny that it was just what I did when trying to prevent flying buildings from flying... though that was still through iscript/AICE - set the flingy speed to 0 after each liftoff (as it's reset to a hardcoded value each time the building lifts off)

sraw531 -- surprisingly easy to change all the hero marines into normal marines, and vice versa, across the map though.

sraw531 -- really hate when SCMdraft replaces deaths with " Memory(17, At least, 1);", makes it so I can't do mass replace for triggers when it changes to memory type :(
