The name is a little long in the tooth but the whole concept of the G302 is to get across the idea that the mouse is primed and ready to kick butt and take names in the multiplayer online battle arena space.
Logitech's G302 Daedalus Prime was designed with games like League of Legends, Smite and Defense of the Ancients 2 in mind. The mouse is lightweight and ergonomic to fit the simple (or complex) needs of a high-end MOBA player. And yes, that also means fine-tuning the hardware specs to be e-sports-ready.
Vincent Tucker, director of Logitech Gaming, commented about the new gaming mouse, stating in the press release...
“We built the Logitech G302 to meet the performance needs of the best eSports athletes in the world,” ... “The G302 is the best mouse for MOBA gameplay combining comfort and durability with some of the most advanced technology available. It withstands the rigors of the highest levels of gaming, and enables extremely fast clicking and precise timing, which is critical, given that a victory or loss can be determined in milliseconds.”
Determined in milliseconds? Sounds like the average Call of Duty match.
But it's not just about timing, it's also about positioning. Logitech wanted to design a form-fitting mouse to help gamers react and respond so they can be on the right side of the win/loss ratio. Hence, Logitech had the mouse designed for fast-clicking and buttons with easy reach for your digits.
The Daedalus Prime houses a 20-million click lifespan and has optimized DPI settings for four different grades of scaling. The mouse was designed in this way for what they call “pixel-perfect” execution, enabling players to move the mouse at quick speeds within a short distance to the exact position on the screen without movement-bleeding or requiring pointer readjustment.
The mouse was put through the ringer by various professional MOBA teams and players, including but not limited to Team SoloMid, Cloud9, CJ Entus Frost, CJ Entus Blaze, and Invictus Gaming.
Jason "WildTurtle" Tran from Team SoloMid even dropped a comment about the Daedalus Prime G302, saying...
“It’s super light and responsive, the buttons are fast and feel great, and the tracking is impeccable,” ... “The G302 is exactly what I need to help my team win.”
The tracking and streamlined response timing is helped by Logitech's Delta Zero sensor technology. This supposedly helps the performance and reaction of the pointer with a special lens design and algorithms to help adjust the movement for precise player response timing. In short, the mouse was designed to help MOBA players kick butt and take names.
Of course, there are also customizable settings made available for easy-to-use macros. You can setup how you want the buttons to behave and what sort of actions they perform when pressed. There's supposedly the ability to setup complex macro combos and advanced configuration settings to suit your gaming needs.
It doesn't quite look as sleek as the Cyborg M.M.O 7 or BMW gaming mouse, but G302 seems to favor functionality over fancy looks.
The G302 Daedalus Prime gaming mouse from Logitech is scheduled to go on sale in North America and Europe some time this month. How much will this MOBA-inspired wrist-worker cost you? Well, it actually has the moderate price of $49.99. That's not bad... not bad at all. You can learn more by visiting the official website.
