Hello, I've been looking for this but the content I found was just not enough to clarify this to me or too old. I'm thinking about buying a gaming mouse to try it out, I've never had one and some of them look pretty cool with it's design, lights, etc... However some models come with it's own software to configure macros into the additional buttons the mouse has, for example binding the grenade key to a mouse button. It's also possible to create a macro in some models to "auto-fire" semi auto weapons by holding a button and having it configured to make x left clicks per seconds while you're holding ir, which isn't actually auto firing, it's just clicking so fast. I can perfectly click really fast to fire some semi autos, but I'd want to try out that feature for two main reasons:
1 - After a whole conquest game clicking super fast my finger will start to hurt, specially with the m1903 experimental, which has a huge rate of fire but a somewhat low damage and low range, so you have to click really fast to use the weapon at it's full potential, or it's completely useless. And it's my almost only way to level up the scout class since my sniping skills are nonexistant, after a lot of tries in vain to improve it.
2 - Mouse durability; as you all should know, every button/key has a lifespan based on how many times/how strong you click or smash that button, so clicking it so many times during the long gameplay sessions operations and conquest offer will reduce it's lifespan and in the end the button would start to malfunction or break at some point, with the macro making it last much longer.
Now my question is: is this allowed? Because I don't want to spend 20+ $ on a mouse with some features I will never use or I will get banned. This is not any kind of hack or cheat, as I told you I can click very fast with the problems I posted. And since weapons have a rate of fire cap, it cannot be surpassed in any way, the 1903 exp having 450 rpm, which would be 7.5 clicks per second, nothing extremely fast, so even if I used 50 clicks per second, there would be no difference if I used 7.5, 10, 20 or 1000 clicks per second.
Plase, if possible I would like to get serious and clear answers, with it's source and, luckily enough, an official answer from a developer/staff member. I don't care about "in my opinion" answers because they are subjective and what you think isn't going to change what the actual facts are. Thank you very much.
And for God's sake, save your "learn to play", "get some skill", "omg you hacker I hope you get banned", etc comments. I think we all are old enough to avoid these things.
