I have heard that turbo pads have been banned from tournament but I could not find anything to confirm this online, was hoping someone could clarify this for me as I am looking to enter some tournaments to try and improve and I do not own a stick yet.
I can see this being an issue in the older street fighter games where button mashing was used to get out of holds and dizzy’s, but in Street Fighter 4 they have eliminated all need for button mashing.
I play E Honda so I use it for hundred hand slap. I can see the argument coming from an opposing player saying “well normally you’d have to hit 5 buttons and now you just have to hit one so its not fair”.
What do you think, should they be banned? Does it really give Honda that much of an advantage? Everything I do on a turbo pad is possible on a stick and is really just less reliable to manually input on a pad. I would still say a player on a stick is at more of an advantage.
