    Do i need a mousepad?

    I have a optical mouse. Do I need a mousepad? Will it improve performance? I currently use it on cardboard.

    A good mouse and a mousepad helps. You won't be a pro, but it'll help some, and it won't hold you back from improving like a poor mouse and lack of pad will.

    If you're just goofing and having fun, no you don't need it.

    Yeah. Don't expect it to turn you into a pro but it can help.

    I read that it helps protect your mouse?

    It will help prevent wear and tear on the feet if nothing else.

    9 is quite a big number tbh, I'm curious about the resolution you are using ingame.

    - Are you using raw mouse input in Quakelive?
    - What is the exact model of the mouse and what is the Hz your USB port running at? (asking because some mice only performs good with certain DPI and/or with a certain usb polling speed and/or on a certain surface/pad, so it's not irrelevant what you buy or if it would worth it or not)

    Goliathus is way overrated. I went through a crapton of pads before I found one that could compare to the better hard surfaces out there.

    How about the Qck Steelseries? I don't want to spend thirty dollars on a mousepad.
