This is most relevant to SFIV, but applies to other fighting games that use multiple button inputs and have the option for shortcuts to them.
Is it generally ok to assign a button on one’s controller or stick to do something like PPP or KKK in a tournament? Is this generally frowned upon? Why do people care either way?
Just trying to get some perspective here. I went to a local tourney recently for SFIV, and I wasn’t allowed to use my stick because it had the 2 rows of 4 (with the last two buttons in each row being PPP and KKK respectively), and they told me I wasn’t allowed to use my stick becuase of the additional buttons.
My arcade stick is configured to automatically be in line with SFIV’s Arcade Stick: Type - A so its not like I requested extra time to configure my controller. In fact, I was faster than quite a few people in this regard because all I had to do was scroll to the default for Arcade Stick: Type - A and I was good to go.
What do other people think about this? Is this normal behavior at tournaments? Did I just get screwed because it was a grassroots tourney with weird rulesets (only 20 people showed up)?
