2000 dpi is painfully slow...

I use 4320 dpi.

Amazing...some people's mouse dpi is painfully slow (400 dpi) while some are ridiculously fast (4320 dpi,seriously?).400 dpi for me is seriously too slow and 3500 dpi is good for me when spinning ONLY.I'm not a pro so I won't post my mouse's dpi.

800 dpi too mainstream

Well I'm not a top level player, but I use 3500DPI.

doomsday uses 800dpi.

I feel I really don't care about dpi used by top players. :|

What's actually interesting to me, is the actual sensitivity that players use. For instance, how much do they have to move their mouse to reach each corner of the playfield?

800dpi, 0.8x Sensitivity. Am i doing too slow?

Your settings would make my cursor fly into the corners of my screen

^same here, except if you're going to compensate with a higher resolution.

I don't really get why so many people are DPI whores. Really any top mouse player could just full combo most maps with a cheap 5$ mouse if he gets his sensitivity to the same level as before and some practise. Even some counterstrike progamers (where accuracy is even more important) Just use a mouse with under 600 dpi and it works perfectly fine. Equipment will never change how good you really are at the game.

As a mouse only player, I normally use a $5 mouse at home (yes really $5)
But after trying the game with a gaming mouse at my friend's house I must say what mattered wasn't the dpi, it was the er.. *clickability*
I no longer had to compress my mouse buttons with ten thousand tonnes of pressure to register a click and that really made a difference

hey, what about mouse acceleration? i heard that turning it off would be good...
It depends. I've always played with it on and when I turned it off, I started doing way worse

Give it some time. I took 2 days to get used to it, things went uphill from there

back when i actually cared about my rank, i used to have my mouse set to 600 dpi and i would adjust my ingame sensitivity by +/- 0.2 depending on the type of map i was playing.

the mouse used doesn't really matter as long as you are comfortable clicking with it often enough, even if you use the keyboard. i found a great way of increasing your accuracy was to play with just the mouse since clicking often shifted the mouse slightly, causing you to aim dead-center instead of at the outer edge. once you get used to that and switch back to the keyboard, your accuracy goes through the roof.

well, at least it did for me.

You haven't played much for eons! You should totally try out this game again. It is a good game after all ;p

I move less than 1 cm. That being said, I find that changing my dpi down from 4k+ to less than 1000 has a minimal effect. I'm without a doubt better with 4k dpi, but there is likely merit in using a lower dpi. For example, I can't use mouse buttons on 4k dpi because it's impossible to do so without moving the mouse off the cursor. However, spinning is much harder on a low dpi.

IMO this is far too low. If you can't do a 720 moving from one end of the mousepad to the other, it's not usable. This sort of gameplay also makes the MX518 a shitty mouse since it has pointer acceleration and line snapping. I'm unsure if it happens at 400 dpi, but it definitely does at lower values. That's what makes the intellimouse so good for these sorts of players.
