I got a new 23" LCD. Playing LoL is massively different now. Like I can actually see everyone in a teamfight, I can even see from the outer tower to the lizard without having to scroll my screen around.

I might fuck up a bit though because the Widescreen is a bit disorienting. Moving the mouse 1 unit up moves the cursor on the screen 1 unit up, but moving the mouse 1 unit to the side moves the cursor on the screen like 3 units. So that's a bit weird, but not unexpected.

does lol have a widescreen mode? I thought most of the games in widescreen mode don't do that scroll crap.

I thought you hated LCDs cause of the response time, what gives?

LoL is fine widescreen, it's just not built to prevent you from getting an advantage by having a bigger screen.

As for LCD vs CRT, my CRT broke a while ago and I got an LCD. Then that broke and I got this new one. Overall I still think CRTs are better, but they don't make them anymore so it's a moot point. All I can do is get a 2ms or less refresh time on my LCD and hope for the best. At this point I've gotten used to it, but I do still notice a difference when I use a CRT (my parents until recently had a big expensive CRT that they bought shortly before CRTs went out of production).

CRTs are technically superior, since they have infinite contrast, perfect scaling, zero response times and zero input lag.

But that was yesteryear, people care more about how something looks than how it performs. I DON'T EVEN NEED ANY EXAMPLES.
