Fighting Games Controller

With the current Hitbox, Pad discourse we can all agree that Stick is the only choice that shouldn't be banned.

I used to be a fierce defender of Hitbox, but these days I hold the thought they should be banner alongside controllers. Having a standard type of device (in this case stick) is the best way to ensure fairness and seriousness. You don't play basketball with different kinds of balls, you don't play baseball with different types of bats, so why should you be allowed to play fighting games with different types of controllers.

With that being said, what's your favorite stick or what's the best one currently?

    Only retards play with stick. Arcades are dead and 95% of the playerbase play with pads. Stick your stick up your ass, boomer.

      whole discussion is retarded, just like Armenian Hagrid. if you game can't handle hitbox without it causing cheating 2-cardinal inputs, play a game that isn't old and fucking busted.
      if you play some old ass MAME emulation game then feel free to ban anything but arcade sticks it was designed for, thats fine, but nobody plays it anyway and no new players ever will.
      if you play anything modern then shut the fuck up and stop crying. pad is the standard, and hitbox is just an improved evolution of stick. adapt or die.

      i play a stick but this is absolutely true. all fighting games today are absolutely designed for pad, as they should be. asking people to buy a 200$ arcade device to start playing as dumb as shit. i just use it because i am a boomer + the tactile nature of slapping arcade buttons is FUN.

      Except in Nipland. Those jokers still go to those local arcade malls and use those toy vending machines that are obviously rigged.

        Asian ufo catchers and the like are the fairest arcade games out there. Employees will literally rearrange the prizes for you if asked to make sure you get the specific one you want and then it’s just a skill game. Just because you’re used to American carnie antics bending you over a barrel doesn’t mean the rest of the world is like that

      Only retards play with physical inputs. Buttons are dead and hardcore people use direct neural input links. Stick your “le manual input device” and your fucking brain-to-hand nerve-lag up your ass, zoomerboomer.

    i agree. Im not a fan of pads since i dont get shit on them and i think pads shouldnt be banned. but i hate hitboxes since it makes so much shit easier and everyone who uses one should be executed on side.

    My current (and first, since i dont count the MadCatz Alpha) is the Hori Rap 4 Kai, which i gave a custom sticker artwork. The thought of ripping the old one off and put a thicker plexi on the top of it, made me nervous

      Recently bought an obsidian and while it's hard to get used to it, it just feels great playing games on it, specially beat em ups.

    i think we should draw the line at the crossup while we still can
    adding extra duplicate functions all over a controller strictly for the purposes of circumventing execution barriers is dumb

    Do you guys really think that Hitbox is the most optimal controller for fighting games?
    I feel like it's kinda average depending on the game. For example, it's not that good for Mortal Kombat and DBFZ which are better on Pad.

      Depends more on the type of character you're playing as than the game itself. Hitboxes are great for charge characters, for example, but they're not very intuitive to use when you're playing as a grappler, though it shouldn't be. Many games count 6248 as a 360

      i think the only major issue is having what's essentially a dash macro in games where that's not an option for other inputs. and obviously crossup for the extra input options

    Imo the game designers shoud design the games while being aware of controllers such as hitbox, all controllers should be valid and everyone should blame the developers.

    You want other people to take your competitive scene seriously? Use a standardized input method. Until that day comes, you are no different from the Meleefags that mod their controllers.

          it's only a standard if every mouse and keyboard setup is the same, otherwise people have different preferences that makes the hardware different to each other
          And the reason there are different controllers for fighting games is because there are many different characters that require different input styles from each other. There's a depth to it that shooters simply cannot match.

        remember when counterstrike fags could sneak in cheats on the mouse onboard memory

        esports is a mistake, once there is big money in the mix, the actual game stops mattering and people just do everything to win

    No, if you're going to ban everything but one controller type, that should be the one that comes with the console and that's the standard for most games.

    what you gays keep forgetting is that sticks themselves are different between themselves. Square, circle, octagon or no gate? What kind of lever? Optic? Cherry switches? What about macro buttons?

    Serious question:
    If this is such a contentious issue, why not simply organize divisions based on input device? Even for the same game?
    Hell, that’s exactly what Motorsport does. Even though all motorsport competitors are all trying to accomplish the same thing, even on the exact same track, they’re divided into categories based on the equipment they’re using to do so.

      Because that's dumb and would piss off everyone
      The control method doesn't give you an advantage because anyone can use anything that conforms to the basic rules tournaments lay out. Think a certain method is "cheating"? You're free to use it as well if it abides by the rules. And if it really were "cheating" then everyone would be shifting over to it.

        These daily threads seem to indicate that it’s already pissing off everyone. If there’s two groups of gay kids in a sandbox each crying about how the other group is playing in it, the simplest solution is two sandboxes.

    if hotbox is not cheating, then AHK and button macros should be allowed. don't cry over 1 button supers if the software allows the input.
