How many people here have made the transition from a controller to a fightstick? I’m currently playing MvC3 on a standard X360 controller, and I’m wondering if getting a stick will really improve my execution like everyone says it will. I am used to the X360 controller already and I like how you can map multiple inputs to one button, i.e. using LT for L+M for easy hypers. I also don’t really have any problems with the controller’s analog stick, aside from missing diagonal inputs sometimes.
Basically, the only advantages I can immediately see to using a fightstick are more precise directional inputs (so I don’t get Wesker’s sweep when I’m trying to do his gun and shit like that) and easier hypers that have variable effects depending on the buttons (Taskmaster, Skrull). But the disadvantage is that it’s a whole new control scheme to learn, when there are 100 other things I need to learn about MvC3 already.
TL;DR is it worth the learning curve?
