Ok, Support angeschrieben und mein Problem erklärt, als Antwort bekam ich.... Achtung!! ... : Einmal abstecken und anstecken, dann sollte sie wieder funktionieren! :) Ich war so geschockt, weil ich nicht selbst drauf gekommen bin. Also spielte ich ein Spiel, und nahm mir fest vor, falls die Maus wieder ausfällt, unbedingt die Maus erst abzustecken und dann wieder einzustecken. Als es nach ca. 30min in CSGO passierte war ich bestens vorbereitet. Ich suchte mir im Spiel zuerst über die Tastatur einen freien Platz um nicht gleich erschossen zu werden. Als ich einen einigermaßen sicheren Platz gefunden habe, schmiss ich mich schnell unter meinem Tisch, denn da steht ja mein Computer, und suchte das Mauskabel zwischen all den anderen Unnötigen Kabeln die da noch so rumlungern und zog das vermutliche Mauskabel raus. Leider war es nicht das Mauskabel, sondern irgendwas anderes unnötiges. Egal, ich muss schnell die Maus finden um weiter zocken zu können ... nach mehrmaligen ziehen an dem Mauskabel merkte ich dann, dass es dieses Kabel sein muss, also zog ich daran und siehe da, die Maus war's (man hört's am Computer Klang wenn man was ein und ansteckt ). Ich freute mich so sehr, so dass ich mir den Kopf unterm Tisch anhaute aber egal, ich muss sie ja wieder eistecken um weiter zocken zu können. Ein Indianer kennt keinen Schmerz!! Also Steckte ich die Maus schnell wieder an und ging vorsichtig unterm dem Tisch hervor (nicht das ich mir nochmal den Kopf anhaue!) und griff nach meiner Maus. Als ich voller Freude weiter zocken wollte, macht ich eine sehr seltsame Erfahrung, die Maus funktionierte zwar wieder aber jetzt kommt's ... ich bin im Spiel von jemanden abgeschossen worden und war Tod (sieht der denn nicht das ich gerade meine Maus ein und ausstecke?!?!) !!! Aber Hauptsache meine Maus funktioniert jetzt wieder (für ca. 30min) .. ich war so Happy über den super Vorschlag vom SteelSeries Support, es hat mein Zocker-Leben verändert mit diesem kleinen Trick!!
+ Flawless optical sensor, lift off distance isn't as big an issue as people make out.
+ Excellent shape and lightweight - great for claw and fingertip grips.
+ Soft and flexible cable.
+ Best RGB implementation I have seen on a mouse - software is easy to use and offers great customization.
+ Great quality scroll wheel and mouse clicks, very satisfying to use.
+ Excellent stock mouse feet, glides perfectly with not scratchiness or other issues.
+ Good quality plastic shell, feels nice to the touch however it does pick up fingerprints easily.
+ Saves all settings including RGB to the mouse, no need to keep software after you set it up.
+ Overall build quality is rock solid. No flex, no wobbling buttons and no rattling.
- Mouse cable out of the box is kinked due to packaging. It is easy to straighten out though, and once done cable is top quality.
- Side buttons are a tad small, I have gotten used to them but they could definitely be improved.
** My experience between the Rival 3 and G203 is at the end of this review
Prior to using the SteelSeries Rival 3, I was using the Logitech Prodigy G203 (Now Logitech G203 Lightsync).
The Rival 3 is comfortable to use and feels very ergonomic. It is responsive and glides smoothly on my mousemat (SteelSeries QcK). The lighting is beautiful and very bright (compared to my old G203) - Though you can turn this off if you don't like it. The software is quite easy to use though I haven't played with it too much other than to change how the mouse illuminates.
The only weird thing I have noticed with this mouse is that it seems to get slightly warm (?). I'm not sure if this is from holding the mouse or from the lighting, but is sometimes noticeable when you take your hand off and put it back on again. This is not a dealbreaker but an observation, though not something I have come across before.
Overall, happy with this purchase and would recommend :)

My experience between G203 and Rival 3
These two seem to get compared a lot, probably due to similar price point and similar design/shape/size so here's my take:
I had the G203 for 2.5 years before it got the double-click issue and I had to get another mouse. Before that it worked fine and I didn't have any issues with it. At my time of purchase, both the G203 Lightsync and Rival 3 were the same price (£34.99).
I reason I decided not to buy the G203 again is partly due to ergonomics - The shape of the mouse.
The shape of the G203 curves inwards at the end and sometimes I felt myself gripping that part of my palm together harder to hold the mouse when playing games, especially when things got tense. This wasn't 100% comfortable though not deal-breaking-ly uncomfortable. The shape of the Rival 3 is wider at the end which, from experience, makes my palm/wrist feel more supported as it's able to 'rest' on the mouse more comfortably. In addition, the sides of the mouse curve inwards so your thumb and small finger can rest better around the mouse which is also a plus.
My experience with the G203 was not bad. It was smooth, responsive and looked sleek. However, as during time of purchase the G203 Lightsync was the same price as the Rival 3, I looked to see what other options were available.
Admittedly, I do think the G203 looks nicer (Ironically probably due to the shape!), but ergonomically I am happier with the Rival 3. Currently at the time of writing, the G203 is cheaper by £13 (depending on the colour..) so I would recommend it if you're looking for a cheaper option, however I do think the Rival 3 is more comfortable for a small hand palm grip user like myself :)
I hope this review is useful for anyone who was stuck choosing between the two like I was!
lightweight - a bit too lightweight actually but it's ok
Super slippery - Biggest negative property of this product. I could not stress how slippery this mouse is, if you can actually test this mouse before buying, this would put you off straight away. Grip is zero. There is nothing you can grab your hands into. Might work if you have got sweaty hands, otherwise, it's a struggle.
Uncomfortable - basically due to lack of grip
LED - a bit too bright (but should be ok for most people)
I will recommend everyone to skip this product, and spend 8-15£ more for a product with better ergonomics. I am unable to return/exchange this as my missus threw the box and paperwork away as it was Bin day the next day, and she was tidying up. I should have opted for the more expensive Steelseries Rival 310 or equivalent, as it will have better ergonomics.
definately recomend this mouse to fortnite gamers and overwatch '')
