To have an amazing gaming experience a quality gaming mouse is necessary, but for that mouse to work on with excellence, you need a decent mousepad. A mousepad is necessary to keep your desk scratch-less and clean from recurring mouse motions. A mousepad protects the finishing of your computer table, along with providing you comfort while you move your wrist around.
People always wonder if a gaming mousepad is necessary, and the answer is it is definitely worth it. Where there is nothing wrong with regular mousepads, a gaming mousepad is crucial for the functioning of a gaming mouse, as it provides less friction and is better for tracking and controlling.
In other words, if you are going to be sending on a gaming mouse, then why not spend on a pad so that your mouse can function at its best.
Now two things to consider before you run off to buy a mouse mat; its size and its surface. Mousepads are available in a variety of sizes; you can choose one as per your desire or necessity. When it comes to different sizes, you just have to check which one will go along with your keyboard.
The other thing to consider is the surface of the mouse. Most gaming mousepads are synthesized with a soft cloth, hence a soft surface but some mouse sensors and the players themselves, prefer a hard surface. In other words, you can select according to your desires and needs.
