i think point of more dpi is similar to anti-aliasing,maybe way overkill but why not when there is technology available.

on picture should be circle motion , from A to B is high dpi ,from B to C and from C to D is 5x lower dpi so all fine movement in between is lost.

Using the deathadder chroma. I turned down the dpi to 1500. Any higher and it feels like i have a muscle cramp. The mouse flying over the screen like roadrunner. Seeing al these really high dpi mice nowadays I have a hard imagine what the dickens you need or use it for. But I am a old fart is propably the reason why

I had my DeathAdder (3.5 IIRC?) turned down also.

I think it's basically aimed at marketing - Highest number wins. I'm sure there are people out there that can and will use those settings but it's certainly not average old me.

Nothing to do with being older, I've been using a max of 1000DPI since I started gaming on PC when I was 15, 15 years ago.

I've never seen the attraction of super high DPI, It makes aiming much harder.

A German CSGO pro I met about 3 years ago played with 1200 but turned ingame sensitivity down, It seems the popular setting is around 1000DPI plus or minus a few hundred either side.

This is just from my extremely limited experience with talking to pro players.

Well CS:GO players use different dpi settings depending on their role, I think some AWPpers go for 700dpi or even less for that precision aiming
