For myself, I use to play without a mouse pad. My table was decent and smooth. I just had to clean it every so often in casse of dust build ups or the surface becomes uneven.

Recently I started playing on a cheaper table that screws up my mouse sensors, so I was forced to get a mousepad. Playing on a mousepad was pretty much the same as playing on the smooth table except I don't have to worry about weird bumps and stuff like that.

In the end, playing on a mousepad isn't needed imo if you have a simple smooth table, but if you need one, I recommend you get a mousepad of a relatively large size (one that doesn't restrict your movement) that lasts for a while (if the mousepad starts having the cloth roll upward in a month, you have problems)

Thx for all the replies.

My laptop sits on a small wooden glossy table and the response from optical mice isn't so great...after testing it a few times I noticed that even notebook binder paper yielded a better response.

I googled the SteelSeries QcK+ mousepad and it looks pretty sweet. Sounds like a good deal for 15 bucks, and it has some good reviews from Amazon. I'll consider purchasing it maybe sometime in the near future.

SteelSeries QcK+, so it's a smooth, gaming grade cloth surface and the color is plain black with white SteelSeries logo on bottom left of the mouse pad.
Cloth pads. I approve ;)

I was using a steelseries qck mini, but it didn't grip my desk very well at all and its surface was becoming more than a little bit annoying. I just bought a steelseries 4HD and I'm loving it:



I strongly advise that mouse players buy a decent pad, because having something which lets the mouse glide smoothly and track as smoothly as possible is a massive benefit.

Nice choice right there. It is by far the most preferred mousepad by gamers for ages. Though you may want to get QcK Mass or QcK Heavy if your table surface so you won't feel the bumpiness from the surface under the mousepad. It is also highly recommended if you tend to go to LAN parties. Otherwise, it's fine (my table is quite smooth though).

Some optical mice don't work on all surfaces i.e. wood, paper, glass etc. They all work on mouse pads.

My desk. I never use a mousepad because I'm the sort of gamer that requires a lot of space. Always play on low sensitivity, constantly moving the mouse everywhere. Sometimes I even hit the speakers or clock on the edge of my desk. Mousepads limit the space, I can't adjust to 'em.
My speakers are behind my screen, so when you said you hit your speakers i laughed a bit. I'm quite interested in just how much do you move your mouse around. Well anyway, I used to use my desk as a mousepad as well, then i starved myself for a day and bought myself one of those razer mousepads, and never regretting it since
I'm not even exaggerating, I've been an extremely low sens. player since I started gaming.

I used to just use my desk...but from the humidity and wear and tear its all beat up and unusable now. bought a cloth mousepad for general use but once again due to humidity it doesnt work well for osu...mouse gets hard to move around and what not.

I found a piece of masonry board while helping out my grandmother move some painting equipment and noticed it was about the size of my mousepad and incredibly smooth. Started using it and omg I dont think I can ever go back to using mousepads.

Steelseries QcK

Whoa more replies than I expected...
Yeah I just ordered the SteelSeries QcK Gaming Mouse Pad from Amazon last night and after reading that virtually every reply recommended it, I'm glad I did. I didn't get the + or mass because it would be too big to fit on the desk that I use and the 12.6" x 10.6" that the regular has is certainly enough. At $14.99 after shipping it seemed like a pretty sweet deal.

Well QcK Mass has the same size as the standard one but just thicker (QcK Mass has 6mm height instead of 2mm which standard QcK had).

I used to use a piece of white paper, then I switched to a cheap cloth pad to match my cheap mouse.
I still have that paper around, just can't bear to see it go ;_;

Btw does buying a good mouse mean I need a good pad? I may get a new mouse today.

Oh I see. I thought the mass was bigger in size but come to think of it mass is measurement of weight not necessarily size >_> fail.

Athena: I am currently using paper as well haha but I don't really know from experience if a good mouse needs a good pad but I'm sure a good pad would help no matter what kind of mouse it is. I got the Logitech M305 wireless mouse. It is a good mouse except it is a mini-sized mouse and now whenever I use a standard sized mouse it feels like the weirdest thing in the world. It has great portability and it uses less space than a normal sized of course, which is why I like it. I only got it cause I tried it at my friend's house and it seemed pretty nifty. The wireless is awesome but I wouldn't say this is a "great" mouse, just an average one. Even though I'm a computer science major I'm not that big of a gamer so I don't really know what's the best out there; I'm more into programming.
