The mouse I have has a wheel on it so you can move your cursor with your thumb and no mouse pad.If this mouse was like that,I would buy it.The mouse I have costs $50 but of course needs no mouse pad and is much more convenient than this kind of mouse where you move it around the mouse pad.

I can't complain about the mouse price, I have a G9X, and in my country that cost me around $120. which is like $100 American. I think with all the great artists over at Riot they could have pushed the boundaries of design a little bit, the mousepads seem pretty "old school" League, and the mouse is pretty much a standard MMO mouse with the LoL Logo on it. I can see how this would be a nice purchase for a hardcore fan with money to blow, or a birthday present, but not an average joe's purchase, or someone that already has a gaming mouse. Also, I don't recommend clicking the "Get Tryndamere" button, it said I purchased the mouse lmao, I'm sure I didn't but it made me **** my pants.

Seems cool, but a bit too pricey.

Please let me tell you all about how bad Razer is as a company and why I do not buy their products:

In 2005 I was lucky enough to get to go to E3 in LA. I worked for a small company called Good Work Systems, this company made an interesting alternative style mouse called the R2 which sported the ONLY on board memory on a mouse at the time and its own scripting language called PAL. Allowing users to script everything from button presses to mouse movements. The company was so small that the mice were actually put together in the CEO's basement by hand.

Razer was a much larger company than us, their booth was very fancy. They had multiple demonstration kiosks each manned by an official Frag Doll that you could go head to head at Quake with and a couple thousand dollars worth of advertisements. Our booth consisted of a few folding tables and two computers with demo mice we used MS Paint to demonstrate the scripting technology, a printed sign of the mouse logo we had made at Kinkos the night before and our home made shirts which sported the same logo.

On our breaks my co workers and I were allowed to wonder the floor and visit other booths get free **** and just enjoy ourselves. We headed over to the Razer booth, mostly to talk to the Frag Girls and play Quake. We started playing Quake with the Frag Girls and we start talking to them about E3 and how cool everything has been. We were there for no more than 5 minutes when security shows up and asks us to leave the building. They told us that the Razer people said we were trying to steal publicity from them because we had our home made R2 logo shirts on and were at their booth and that we had to leave. These shirts were made with puffy paint and magic marker. They had easily 10 thousand dollars worth of professional advertisements on their booth, lights, tv screens, music, smoke machine the whole nine but we were messing up their fung shui with our shirts that had a competitors logo on them.

So security is escorting us out of the building when our CEO sees us. He comes over and we tell him whats going on. He talks to security and gets them to let us stay to work our booth on the condition that we stay away from the Razer booth.

Later that same E3 Razer announces their new mouse, the Copperhead, a mouse with 32 bytes of memory. They claim they are the first company to create a mouse with on board memory. This is not true our small company had been selling our R2 with on board memory for more than a year at that point. Of course without the money Razer has to advertise their product no one knew about the R2. So Razer got all the ohs and ahs while our company was getting stepped on by Razer.

TL : DR Razer tried to have me kicked out of E3 and used false advertising to shove the company I worked for out of the market.

I will wait. Would like League of Legend mice on Razer Orochi. Naga seems to be over sized for me, but definitely cool stuff there

I want a mouse with extra programmable buttons, but I'm not shelling out $90 for it. I could get a wired, 2-button w/ scroll wheel mouse for $8 and just learn to use keyboard shortcuts more effectively.

They made a similar mouse for WoW and it was pretty bad, especially for the price. You can get a Logitech G400 (formerly the Mx518) for $40 and have the best gaming mouse out there
