We often talk about how mice are an extension of yourself and how a good mouse stops making you think about what to press or where to put your fingers, but instead lets you get on with the business of smiting your enemies.
If you've ever - although to be fair who hasn't - started a different game you'll be aware of the time it takes to get used to the button layout, so that dodging or whatever stops being something you do with a moment's pause to remember which button it is, but instead happens instinctively. A good mouse should always make you have that instinctive reaction without needing to learn it. It's a generality thing. Most games only need a couple of buttons, so most mice are judged against that standard of simplicity.
However, if you play a more complicated game than a standard FPS or similar then having everything under your thumb is extremely helpful to produce the most worry free gaming experience, but necessarily the solution to this issue does come with a bit of a learning curve because the mice that give you that depth of control are more specialised.
The Corsair Scimitar RGB Elite is one such mouse, designed for the hardcore MOBA and MMO crowd it has a dozen buttons on the side where normally we find only two. It doesn't pretend to be a mouse for all people, instead it's a mouse for a certain niche, but if you fall within that category then it might very well be the product that takes your gaming prowess over the hump and into the sunlit uplands of success.
