These two guides, written by the lookingformore husband and wife team, are really good:
- situational awareness pt 1: learning to mouse turn and more, finding your own style
- situational awareness p2 2: fine-tuning your mouse controls
This is a topic I find very intriguing and I believe is very important.
I’m a big advocate of mouse-turning and keybinding. I’ve written about it in the past and recommended people use PvP to improve their PvE skills. Also knowing which abilities require you’re facing the opponent is important, you may need to do a jump shot.
I’ve recently bought myself a Razer Naga and Logitech G13 to get to the next level of control, and our thread on alternative keyboards and gaming mice has had over 2000 hits alone. I’ll write a little review once I’m more familiar with the combination. The Naga, I can say already, is really worth it. In fact, any Razer gaming mouse is really worth it, the resolution and quality makes a difference right out of the box, even if you don’t get the mega-button option of the Naga.
So these bloggers’ guide deserves its own post right here, so a shout out to them for the contribution. Links back up the top, go clicky.
I’ve also written a few posts based on Boyd’s theory of observe-orient-decide-act, which he developed as a top US fighter pilot and strategist, and fighter jet designer. He worked out that if you can operate within the decision cycle of your opponent, if you can react faster and if you can disrupt their own OODA-loop, then you gain the upper hand. This applies very well to PvP.
