Starcraft 2 Pro Settings and Setups – Monitor, Mouse, DPI, Resolution
Starcraft 2 is easily one of the most mechanically demanding games. Most professional players are equally demanding of their mouse, keyboard and in-game settings. That’s why we have prepared a list for you to compare the gear used by the pros. For starcraft, mice need be as precise as possible. The perfect starcraft mouse has to fit your playstyle, habits, and hand size. So please consider this while picking your hardware.
Playing with the best mechanical keyboard, mouse and mouse pad can make a huge difference. So if you are stuck in the lower ranks or just want to get your game to the next level, try the hardware of pros like Nerchio, TY, Zest, Stats, Maru or sOs. We tried to update this list via their twitter, twitch streams and by watching several broadcasts.
For the most of us, finding the best mouse or keyboard can be a challenging. We advise you to test the mice in this list in person. Everyone is different. Pick a couple from this list and feel them out. It’s hard to go wrong when you chose the same as the pros.
Especially for real time strategy games, you want to pick a starcraft mouse that fits your hand exactly.
The same goes for the perfect starcraft keyboard. The heavy mechanical keyboards are not everyone’s cup of tea. Some other people swear by them. While we personally recommend a mechanical keyboard. You might be completely fine with a regular good old Cherry keyboard.
Please note that this list is a work in progress. Feel free to give us criticism and new information where necessary. We really appreciate your support and commentary. We’ve been working on these lists for a while and finding the gear of starcraft pros was incredibly difficult. So thank you for contributing as well.
Where are the DPI parameters, that’s the most interesting part.
I agree with Jimmy Liu. You guys should ask the pros what their mouse dpi is set to.
According to this reddit thread though (came up in a google search)
Unfortunately there is not any where close to enough information about the starcraft 2 pros. 🙁
Sortof uses 750 dpi
Lambo uses 700 dpi
Harstem uses somewherer around 800-850dpi
I asked the players in their stream. Hartstem doesn’t seem so sure about DPI he’s currently using, and he doesn’t remember how to check it out. But 800 dpi seems to be the most common ,though
I hope this post spreads to more people – duck life
