Alright, so here it is:
Obviously this is more of an issue towards pad players. I grew up playing pad, I don’t enjoy playing on stick competitively and I still suck at it after 2 or more years. I really don’t want to hear “learn to play stick, or stick is better such and such.”
Do you guys think it should be illegal to use in tournament (I know some local tournaments still don’t allow them), or do you see the use of macro buttons as in terms of “dishonorable” or “cheap.” For example, it’s really easy to roll cancel on CvS2 with them…but then again using macros in-game is “playing to win” and I should take full advantage of it, right? In 3S, it wasn’t a big deal because you only needed 2 buttons for EX moves, but now Ultras have to be done with 3 buttons in SF IV.
I can’t decide if I want to use them now, since EVO allows them, and even the crummy SF IV Gamestop Tournament allowed them since it was default controls. If I remember right, the Tekken and Soul Calibur community was the first one to open up on using them, which I never really played 3D fighters. Plus I never liked the idea of my friends that sucked would always using them. Right now I’m leaning more towards using them in SC IV and SF IV for EVO prep.
I just want to know what you guys think.
