okay, recently some ppl seriously started thinking that I was using lg hax and even reported to id.

I usually hit 40-50% on FFA servers against ppl who doesnt dodge, and 40% on duel servers including some spams.
I know I am not the best at all still can improve my lg (I am actually trying to ),
but I would like to share how I have improved mine because I am pretty sure almost anyone should be able to hit that kind of amount at least if they practice and learn the proper way to aim.

I also know there are many ppl that hit even harder lg than mine with completely different settings.
This is just one of many ways to do it but will help a lot 100% if your average lg % is anything below 40.

btw im from japan and not a native english speaker so sry about some incorrect grammer/words.

-----------------------------------------------
0 Setup
-----------------------------------------------
This guide's goal is hitting 70% lg against bots in practice mode, and 40-50% lg against ppl on FFA servers.
So here are 2 ways I have been using for warmup/ practice.

1. against bots (ur main practice method)
i know u say u can hit 100 percent lg against them easily coz they keep jumping and dont dodge.
calm down and just type the following commands.

/devmap thunderstruck (to enable cheat mode)
/god (you dont die)
/g_infiniteammo 1 (infinite ammo)
/bot_thinktime 0 (this makes bots not jumping alot, but strafe more quickly to make it harder to hit. it is actually hardder than a noob who doesn't dodge)
/bot_challenge 1 (this makes bots a bit more challenging, but to be honest i dont see the difference)
/g_startinghealth 999 (bots spawn with 999 health)
/g_startingarmor 999 (bots spawn with 999 armor)

then add 1 nightmare bones

+, you want to start using /timescale command to change the game speed to learn how to aim properly.
But forget about this for now, ill talk about it later.

2. against ppl on FFA servers
it is always good to practice against real ppl.
i will talk about the detail later.

------------------------------------------------
1 Practice strafe aim
------------------------------------------------
First, you must know there are 2 ways of aiming.
Mouse aim and Strafe aim.
This guide will talk mostly about mouse aim since it is the must skill to hit some nice amount of lg.
But lemme talk about strafe aim shortly since it helps u alot later when u want to adjust/ cover some hard situations for mouse aim.

Here is how you strafe aim.
1. put ur xhair on ur opponent.
2. strafe to the same direction he moves and hit 100% lg until ur opponent changes his direction.

That's it.
It's a good way to learn how lg can be a strong weapon when u hit alot.
Also this method is way easier than mouse aim.

then why do u want to learn mouse aim?

1. you have to put ur xhair on ur opponent again everytime he changes his strafe direction
2. it is hard to change ur strafe direction when ur opponent changes his quickly.
3. if ur opponent also knows how to strafe aim and has more stack than u, u lose even u hit some insane lg.
4. it is super easy to counter ppl who only knows how to strafe aim but not mouse aim. Mouse aimers can just strafe to the opposite direction and still hit insane amount of lg. Its just easy for them to hit 50% while u hit 10%.

So after you become able to hit 40 or 50% lg against bots with strafe aim,
it is time to start learning how to mouse aim. here we go.


------------------------------------------------
2 Turn off your accel
------------------------------------------------
you can skip this chapter if u want.

I believe this is a personal preference thing.
But u will learn how to control ur mouse faster with no accel just because it is always the same amount of the mouse move when u want to move ur xhair from Point A to Point B. it is not affected by how fast u swing ur mouse. = stable

Accel can be amazing if u can completely control ur mouse move speed to move ur mouse to any points where u exactly want to put ur xhair on smoothly or quickly.
Otherwise it is not cool because it is unstable, and u will become able to move ur mouse quickly enough even with super low sensitivity once u get familiar with it.

anyway it's up to you.


------------------------------------------------
3 Lower your sensitivity
------------------------------------------------
When I started practicing my lg, my sensitivity was 5 with mouseaccel 2.0(i know, its lol), dpi 450 ( 18.5cm/360 with 2.0 accel).
First I turned off my accel and higherd my sensitivity to cover the accel.
Then I slowly lowered my sensitivity until 0.6 with 800 dpi( 85.7cm/360).

Here is why you want to lower the sensitivity.
VERY IMPORTANT

It is easier to trace ur opponent with lower sensitivity.
why?
With high sensitivity, ur mouse skips when u move it (especially when u move it quickly, or even with ur mousepad's friction)
if u want to hit good amount of lg, u dont want to skip any pixels while u trace.
Lowering sensitivity will help u to learn how to do trace aim properly much easier than higher sensitivity.

low sensitivity = less amount of pixel skips = easier to learn the proper way to trace

This is how u lower ur sensitivity

1. start a map with those commands that I explained in chapter 0.
2. type /timescale 0.8 in console.
3. Now the gamespeed is much slower than the normal speed.
4. DO NOT USE UR KEYBOARD AT ALL BUT "USE UR MOUSE ONLY" TO AIM, AND HIT AS MUCH AS U CAN.
5. u should be able to hit more, restart the map and do it again.
6. now /timescale 0.9 and do step 4-5
7. /timescale 1 and do step 4-5
8. timescale 1.1, 1.2, 1.3, then finally timescale 1.4

/timescale 0.8 to learn how to control ur mouse without any skips and trace opponent's move properly. (Trace Aim)
you may think it is too easy but if u cant hit well with timescale 0.8, u will hit worse in timescale 1. plz hit at least 80% with this timescale.
try not to miss any moves that bots make.

/timescale 1.4 to learn how to adjust ur mouse as quickly as possible when ur opponent changes his strafe direction or when ur xhair is out of ur opponent. (Flick Aim)
once u get familiar with this speed, u will still be able to hit some nice lg (at least over 40%).
This practice also help u feel everything is fucking slow when u go back to normal games. so u will have more space to adjust ur xhair position, or to think something else like timing/positioning.



Did u realize how often u skipped pixels when u moved ur mouse?
This is why ur lg is shitty.
There is a way to fix it without lowering the sensitivity, but for now, JUST lower it.

when u lower ur sensitivity, do it by 0.2
if u lower it too much at one time, u will fail coz I know u will start thinking it is too slow and low sensitivity is not for u, and go back to ur high sensitivity.
do it slowly man.
once u get familiar with ur new sensitivity (depends on ppl but will take 1 day to 1 week, just dont hurry),
then lower it by 0.2 again.

The question is, when is the time to stop lowering ur sensitivity.
For me, it was sensi 0.6 with 800dpi. (85.7cm/360)
But it depends on u.

The important thing is not how low ur sensi is, but
1. hitting without any pixel skips.
Keep lowering it until u dont see any skips that are caused by ur mouse move.
2. if u cannot follow when ur opponent is right in front of u and make big strafes, it might be too low.
You may want to higher it a little bit.
But, u will get familiar with it and become able to hit with no problems when u stick with it.

+ idk if it is just me, but lower sensi makes me feel opponent's moves slower than higher sensi.
It also helped me to hit more.

lg aim is all about
1. how much u can trace perfectly
2. and how fast u can put ur xhair back onto ur opponent when it is out

u just need to maximize these 2 skills as high level as possible u can.

If u keep lowering ur sensi and reached the point, don't stop to practice against bots, and hit at least 60% average after finishing 20-50 bots with timescale 1.( I hit 68-70% in these days)

Dont forget not to use ur keyboard at all.
you are practicing this method to improve ur mouse aim to hit insane lg while dodging every shit ur opponents make.


------------------------------------------------
4 Focus on dodging while hitting insane amount of lg
------------------------------------------------
once u become able to hit good amount of lg, go to FFA servers to test ur skill.

The focus is,
1. Dodge everything
2. and Hit ur every lg cell against everyone
at the same time.

Even if u hit 85 percent lg, 100 percent rl wins.(dps-wise)
u have to do both of hitting and dodging at the same time.
and this is the thing that strafe aimers cannot do.
strafe aimers strafe to eat direct rockets and die before they hit enough amount of lg.

A lot of ppl on FFA servers doesn't dodge(they do long strafes), or does have simple/predictable dodging.
u should be able to hit at least around 40%.
At this point some noobs start calling u a cheater(as usual =p ).
Currently i usually hit around 45-50+.
At this point some 1500 elo dulers start reporting u to id for hax.
when u take those words, dont forget to translate them into the proper language.
all of them are basically saying "Damn u r amazing".
type "thank you" with smiles and focus on improving ur aim/dodging.

Some ppl's dodging is really good and u will find situations u cannot hit well against them, but keep practicing.
As long as u understood and got the proper way to aim, u will be able to hit well against them in the future.

when u become good at this, even against rl in close range fights in corners on dm13, u can still win them with lower health/armor disadvantage. (need luck sometimes tho)

when u play on servers where ur ping is over 60 or 70, u might want to type /cl_timenudge -20 in console.
it basically predicts opponent's move from snapshots and physics.
so when it predict in a wrong way, u dont hit even ur xhair is on ur opponent.
but in general it has been helping my 75+ ping a lot to still manage to hit 40+ lg.


------------------------------------------------
5 Higher your sensitivity
-------------------------------------------------
In the end, higher sensitivity is better as long as u can control ur mouse smoothly enough with no skips because of

1. faster flick aim
2. wider trace aim range

personally highering sensitivity took a bit longer to get familiar than lowering it.
But again do it slowly and do not over-higher it or ur aim will be unstable again.

my current settings are
sensiitivity 2.8, no accel, m_yaw&m_pitch 0.022 with
wmo (400dpi) + zowie g-tf rough
(37.1cm/360)

i just changed to this very recently from sensi 3 with abyssus + some mousepads experiment.
I had been playing with exact same settings of yz50(u know who he is).
i had been using his cfg, hud, xhair, mouse, mousepad for long time when i tried to higher my sensi.
i was like "if someone can hit insane lg with this exact same settings, i should be able to do it too".
it helped me a lot, and that was about when ppl started saying good things about my aim.

i just found sensi 3 with 450dpi was a bit hard for me not to skip when i traced.
now i feel greater than ever with my current settings, and will hopefully improve more in the future.
-------------------------------------------------
6 Try different mouses and mousepads
-------------------------------------------------
I have tried some mouses/mousepads.

Mouse: wmo/ abyssus/ kana/ fk/ ec2evo/ deathadder/ salmosa asian edition/ mico/
Mousepads: qck+/ qck heavy/ goliathus speed, control/ G-TF speed, rough/ allsop raindrop/ a glasspad(I ordered a big piece of glass and sprayed back side with black)

Currently my setting is wmo + zowie G-TF rough because I found myself prefer smooth glide with less (but a bit of) friction.

everybody should have their own favorite glide/ shape/ size/ etc.
Get a job and try something u haven't tried yet.
they might be a lot more comfortable than ur current gears.


----------------------------------------------------
Ending/ videos
----------------------------------------------------
I am now 30 or 31.
age doesnt matter, or at least u can get better lg than a lot of quakers' out there.( not including pros and some crazy ppl lol)
to be honest i believe everybody can hit at least 40% lg if they learn the proper way to aim.
When I tried to improve my aim, I had googled for hours and hours to find any guides, methods, or pro's videos.
I guess i have spent more than 100 or 200 hours easily for the bot practice that Ive explained eariler with any kind of sensitivity/ accel/ gear setup/ config/ health and mind condition.

just keep doing.
at some point, u will be able to find the actual reasons why u dont hit, or why u can improve more, by not asking ppl but by urself.
once u reach that point, change whatever u want to solve those problems even they are something against what i have writen here.
u should be fine enough to make proper decisions.

gl man thanks for spending ur time for reading.
I might edit a bit later. not sure yet.

for those who still think i am cheating and asking me to upload demos:

demos from 05/05/2014 to 08/07/2014

demos from 02/02/2014 to 05/05/2014
http://mab.to/nbiXBSqZJ

(be careful, total more than 8GB that includes every games I have played on this PC. for some reason some noobs asked me for these coz they thiink i hax lol. use these demos for whatever u want. i have nothing to hide.)

u will see it was actually not happened all of the sudden or in 1 month, i have been spending many hours and months to achieve it.
those demos also includes games that i get raped really hard by insane duelers, and also the games i made some ppl ragequited. every games i played in between those dates.

i hate cheaters so i can kinda understand how u feel.
but i am just not one of them man.
all u need to do is practicing in a proper way and keep improving.
