The Multiplayer Online Battle Arena, popularly known as MOBA now, keeps getting bigger and bigger for gamers out there. League of Legends and Dota fanatics are now battling it out with hundreds of thousands of fellow gamers on the virtual battleground. Of course, to keep pace with the evolving nature of these games – the sequel to the original Dota was only just released – you not only need a great graphics card but also an equally capable joystick/mouse. The Razer Naga Hex V2 is a great way to access the hundreds of eSports spells and tricks in a smooth and fast way with minimum fuss. With extremely fast responses, the thumb wheel lets you upgrade to God status in your own little world. It has a total of seven buttons positioned in ways that will prevent most clicking errors. Also, it has profiles for different MOBA games downloaded on to it so you do not have to spend time making the right profile on your own. There are also a total of 14 MOBA programmable buttons on this pocket dynamo.
The star feature of the thumb wheel is the True 16000 DPI 5G laser sensor that will also ensure that it is compatible with the most advanced screens and the most demanding of MOBAs. Most MOBAs rely on their users reacting in real time to evolving threats and as a gamer, you have to have quick twitch reflexes to stay alive in the game. With the advanced laser sensor on the thumbwheel, all user motion is translated onto the screen lightning fast and you don’t have to worry about whether you will land the hits in a fight on a difficult map.
Amongst other features, the vulcanized grip for the thumb and the ergonomic design make it possible for you to keep on those gaming marathons with minimal stress to your thumbs and palms. Also, there is a choice from a stunning array of 16.8 million colors as well as effects that you can choose from to personalize the Hex Chroma lighting.
What are gamers saying about it?
User reviews of the thumb track are mostly glowing, but there is some concern as to how much of an upgrade this is from Razer Naga 2014. There are some things that only the Hex V2 offers, including side plates that are interchangeable, a higher DPI optical sensor, three synapse support and RGB lighting. For users that would want these features, the Hex V2 is a great option but if you do not mind these features, the Naga 2014 is also something you should be looking at. Users have reported that the mouse seems to work fine on any surface and a mouse pad is not necessary, although performance is better on a pad. Thetechinsider.org has reported this mouse to be top of the line.
Who should buy it?
The thumb track is not a steal at the current prices but the higher DPI sensor is great for the heavier games, and if you are a serious gamer, this is a great thing to have in your arsenal. The 14 programmable buttons and the gaming profiles are definitely an added plus.
