Okay – timeline is as following. I get computer – computer is good. But graphic card has cement shoes and leaves me cold. So I get a 660 Ti and throws in a MMOish mouse from Logitech with tons of buttons. 12 on the side – 2 on top and an extra mouse button.
Only thing is that I’m not used to the idea of having 12 buttons on the side so when I play DDO and other games (and I tend to use right click hold and move for manouverability in DDO) I generally support my grip by getting a good solid grip with my thumb.
The same thumb that is now the master of 12 buttons.
So when I play Warhammer 40k Space Marine I end up switching weapons in the middle of brawls and in World Of Tanks I’ve ended up switching to expensive gold ammo setup on button 3 or switched away from said gold ammo (better pen armor ammo) when I had it loaded.
And in DDO of course I sometimes shoot frost lance when I meant to either dance or energy burst.
Plus it throws out of whack the synchronized swimming (analogy) I used to do between using the first five numbered keys and then clicking on some spells for effects. Now I’m worried about learning how to use the side buttons so I often throw myself out of whack. I’m like a parody of that Wiz/Sorc dude who can’t control his spells very good and instead putting down a firewall he turns his best friend into chicken.
Which makes me hungry for KFC.
