Best Maus for WoT

Posted Image

All jokes aside, you really just want something with a good dpi.  I'm using an old Sidewinder (old enough to have the Aluminum scroll wheel).  I don't use either of the side buttons but the on the fly dpi switching is great for switching between Arty(Fast),regular(medium) and scope(slow)

The mouse you are most comfortable with.

Yep, I'm more comfortable with my 10$ (~300 THB) mouse than my brother's Logitech that I salvaged from his desktop.

One thing to note : Your face's traverse and turret traverse are not the same thing at all. Even if you have an ultra swift mouse you're not going to drive your crews to crank the turret faster.

I use a Microsoft Sidewinder Gaming mouse, which I received as a gift and have been very pleasantly surprised with.

Yeah, I got the Sidewinder X5, pretty nice for FPS in general.

The quick DPI change is useful when playing arty.

Oh and BTW :

This is a personal preference question.  There is no This is the best.  If that was true every manufacturers advertising would claim the #1 spot.  Only advice I can giove you is~ if you want programmable mouse buttons (they are very useful for shooter games like BF3 ~ Knife action or scope zoom prone etc..)  look into them. Response time on a mouse in WOT will not change much if your ping is horrible.  This game has a lot of lag due to 30 players from all over going together.  Price point what you would like then research the options for the mouse you can afford.  A $7.00 mouse can play this game as well as a $100.00 one just has more bells and whistles.

I went through 2 used corded mice, then bought a Logitech G500 (which I did like very much) and it started acting up after a month (firing cannon when I wasn't even touching the mouse).  I switched to a wireless Microsoft mouse (run of the mill $10-$15 variety) and other than missing the extra buttons on the gaming mouse, I've rocked these last 4 months w/o any probs.

Get something that is comfortable in your hand if you play for hours on end :Smile_great:

Yes, but when you are playing arty the faster dpi for moving from one side of the map to the other to see your threats is nice.  Likewise in a turreted tank it doesn't matter that the turret isn't keeping up with your view.  But it IS important that you can see the threat quickly and a faster mouse will change your view faster even if the turret/hull doesn't keep up with you.

Oh.  And the AC.mle 1948 almost does keep up with my mouse.  I'll be one of the first to admit the traverse nerf in 7.5 isn't a bad thing.

I bought a new mouse last year. I wan't something with some extra buttons to map, and was pleasantly surprised when the Logitech I decided on had a WoT offer to go along with. It came with a free Matilda, garage slot, and 1000 gold.


I was instantly sold when I saw that.

As with most gaming mice, you will find that their laser DPI is much higher than your run of the mill MS office mouse. What this will translate to is much finer control of your view and reticle, which can be particularly handy when trying to make precise shots or damage specific points on an enemy. It will also help for long range sniping in scoped mode as it should reduce the clunky movement.

As far as wired vs wireless, I would say this is less of an issue than it used to be in years passed, as most wireless operates at higher frequencies now and hence reports movement and clicks very quickly to the computer, so make your choice based on price, comfort, etc.

I'm pretty familiar with computers but I have been unable to tweak the WoT fine control. I own 3x Razor mice on 3 different high end machines. My main rigs are copperhead laser. No matter what DPI, no matter what general settings, no matter win acc on or off, no matter what motion speed, nothing works to make the movement more fine.

Infact, I find this to be a common issue in windows. Windows should super sample high DPI mice to allow a finer screen movement, however I have never found this to be true. There seems to be a point at which the mouse simple does not resolve to any smoother a movement.  There appears to be a minimum quantum of movement.

This all said, I would recommend something with a cord that fits your hand well without fatigue. Past that, in tanks, I do not believe you will see any major benefit.

I've had my G9 for probably 3 years now, still going, no issues to report.

The only suggestion I can make is to use the hard-cased grip, not the fatty rubberized one... after a while that surface comes apart from age. The hard-shell grip, while smaller in the hand is really easy to keep clean (take it off, run it under hot water, use an old toothbrush to get the old skin off, and towel dry).

I used the RAT 7 and currently the G700 wired/wireless Logitech. Both worked good.

Wow they are still making those things... I used to agree, but a mouse is better.

I use a Logitech MX518.

It's nice, has a few extra buttons that don't get in the way and has lasted a long time.

I have the Logitech G9x, great mouse, but it isn't that important for a game like World of Tanks, it's more for FPS games when the shape and grip of the mouse will help you to better control it when you need pin point accuracy.

G700 and love it. Run it wireless while playing WoT and corded (charging) while surfing the forums. The for extra mappable buttons are great for putting fires out with 1 push, fixing tracks with 1 push, ventrilo on another button.
I have been computer  gaming for over 20 years and this is the best mouse I have ever owned. I used to LOVE my old microsoft laser trackball though. And if they didnt stop making them I would probably still be using it.
