I understand that for the most part anyway, if you plan on going pro at all for 2D fighters, you’re gonna want a stick. I also get that if you’ve never used sticks before, then when you do get one, you’re totally going to suck for a while before you adjust.
But are there any actual Pros that just never transitioned to using arcade stick controllers and actually stuck to using regular controllers? And have those people ever actually did really good in tournaments? I’m thinking maybe going to top 10-20 while using a regular game controller. Not picking favorites here, honestly if you could be using a SNES controller for all I care.
Basically I would like to know if its possible to actually be considered a pro fighter while never actually using a stick(and spending like 200$ on a new controller including mods and stuff).
I ask this because, as crazy as this sounds, I have trouble playing FPS games with a keyboard and mouse but I seem to do so much better playing with a controller. But maybe thats because I didnt spend long enough trying to use a Keyboard and mouse. And as far as I know, your “Supposed” to play FPS games with a keyboard and mouse.
Although I get that for certain genre’s, you just have to use a certain type of controller. For instance, RTS games, you pretty much have to play that with a keyboard and mouse. Probably no one is going pro playing RTS games with a console controller. Would it be better for someone to force themselves to learn and transition to using an arcade stick if they have mostly been using a regular controller to play fighters?
