The thing that made the most different to their game was significant changes in game setup. Put 4kings Mangiacapra on a different resolution, with buttons placed in different positions to the ones he has practiced with and his game would be severly disrupted.
I see mice and micemats as similar to football boots to footballers. It may make the experience nicer, but give Ronaldhino a pair of pit boots and he will still be the best in the world!

Also, I find it great in gaming. In games like CSS where when you scope with awm/scout, you can either turn it up a notch to counter the slowdown of movements, and down a notch to get some really accurate shooting!
Now the weights... they're gimmicky - I just loaded all the heaviest ones in!
