    why does cooller moves his mouse so weirdly.

    you can find lot of games where he moves him mouse strangly. I never saw any player move mouse like that.

    Not sure what you're seeing exactly, as his mousing style doesn't look uncommon to me. Russian style with low sens and some accel usually produces the "tiny quick adjustments" look.

    Here's a video of him playing when he was using the wmo 1.1a:

    He later switched to the abyssus, however he still used the same "philosophy" of fairly low base sensitivity (~45 cm/360) with a healthy acceleration (~0.2). He also tended to use a slightly higher m_pitch (vertical sens, about 28 % higher) with invert mouse. Another relevant quirk is the use of m_filter 1.

    Always a claw grip, often with russian style keyboard positioning. Unlike some russian styles which place the mouse parallel to the display (see unKind here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bl-VawJDWiE) , he sticks with the more normal perpendicular positioning.

    More videos here:

    Interesting style--at least it is to me.

    Why does he lift his mouse off the pad? Seems as if it would reduce accuracy but that is obviously not the case.

    Almost everyone does.

    Your most accurate arcs are within a certain "domain" on the pad so many players constantly reposition the mouse to be ready for that.

    As far as I know, I don't do that or at least I'm not aware that I do it. I'll have to try it out consciously.

    Could be because he uses inverted mouse aswell up is down,down is up.

    Alot of the strange flicking motion that you see in frag videos/demos is because of frames being dropped. If you render a demo to an avi at 50fps ( or even more so 30 ) the mouse movement starts to look really 'snappy'. You play ingame at 125fps most likely, and the mouse movement is smooth across those 125 frames, but if you drop that to ~30, the mouse movement starts to look jagged and abrupt.
    That, and Cooller uses high accel.

    quick flicking of the crosshair makes your movement easier than smooth movement. I started doing it recently and I know move faster and more effortlessly than before.
