Anyone taking Soly seriously is just stupid
Your playstyle doesn't change how good you are. You either practice and get good or you blame your equipment and suckit affects how good you are.. well in my case yes. before i had a proper mouse pad, i could only play normal. after i bought my mouse pad i could play hard or even insanes. (Razor Goliathus) it makes my mouse movement smoother and it makes it much easier for me.
