    Hello! I made a post a few days ago asking this about a laser sensor, but I have decided to change my plans from the Lancehead wireless to a hopefully-soon-to-be-released Wireless Optical Chroma mouse, with a few extra buttons including those sensitivity changing buttons behind scroll wheel(and hopefully tilt scroll wheel!)
    I am torn between the Gigantus Elite(or maybe the full-black edition) and the Goliathus Control Large Fissure edition.

    Some potentially useful info:
    Main game: Overwatch
    Main playstyle: Sniper(Hanzo/Widow)
    Current DPI:slightly_sad:before I replace my mouse with the future optical mouse I described) 1800(native dpi for my Epic Chroma I think)
    Current Overwatch sensitivity: 2( for a total of 3600 edpi(dpi x in-game sensitivity)

    More potentially useful information(although probably less useful than above text)
    Other games I play on occasion: games such as World of Warcraft, Van Helsing Final Cut(basically a mild version of Diablo), Age of Empires II(and other similar games... plan on trying Starcraft soon), Heroes of the Storm
    Casual-to-lightly-competitive attitude(reason I decided to wait for a better sensor than the one in the Lancehead wireless... gotta demolish the competition!)

    I apologize if some of this information is somewhat worthless... I did not know what would be useful and what would not be... so if I thought it could have even a minor impact on which mousemat I should go after, I listed it :big_grin_:

    With that information(useful or not).... what do you guys think? Ultra-large Gigantus or the more rough/control style Goliathus? I heard that the Gigantus is between the Speed and Control versions of the Goliathus... so basically a little control and a lot of space vs. a lot of control and still more space than I am currently using

    Thanks in advance!

    Honestly, just about any mousepad will work flawlessly with an optical sensor, it's not like a laser sensor. I own the Goliathus control and honestly it's got too much "control" to it, I'd recommend the SteelSeries QCK. Comes in different sizes, has a good amount of control while still having a decent amount of speed.

    I'll take a look at it, considering the Asus ROG Sheath though simply because my arm gets sweaty after playing 2+ hours and it would make it so my arm isn't sticking to my fake-wood desk, with it being so large and covering 90% of my desk. :confused_:

    Anyone ever try that mousepad before for FPS games?

    I will be completely honest with you I had no clue that Asus made mousepads. Like I said, any cloth pad should work. :)

    @Zcb310 Yeah I did not know until recently either, when I was looking through a prosetting chart for Overwatch and I saw Kephrii(widowmaker main) using the Asus ROG Sheath. I think he either got his equipment for free or is being paid to use them/promote them, but its large, and black/red if you're into that color scheme!

    I sorta am into that color scheme. But I'm not too big on colors, just as long as my peripherals work I'm happy.
