I see what you are saying Demon Dash and I have had even my close friends putting all the pressure on the world for me to learn stick and saying how “I can’t go back to pad”
I know I’ll be able to go back to pad make no mistake about it.
It is what I am better with and I think its gonna take a while before I’m even remotely close with a stick to the level I am on a pad.
My whole mindset if I’m with a stick in a tourney vs. a pad is different…
With a pad I enter confident shooting for the top expecting to win, with a stick it’s like “I’ll be happy if I beat anyone.”
Once again in our area and where 2d is forever is the big tournies are arcade now and days meaning we have to try and sacrifice our pad playing habits to learn stick if we want to play these other people.
:sad: :sad: :sad:
Do I like that?? Hell no.
I mean shit a part of my felt like entering 3s on a stick was a waste of my money because I couldnt give remotely my best with me being ultra-competitive but at the same time the other part felt it was a learning experience.
So I see where you are coming from Demon Dash I hear it all the time from people, but I side with what Matt K. is saying.
Is it fair? Nope. Arcade people can use their own sticks on console, but unless its Tekken we can’t use our own pads on arcades- Giving us the short end of “the stick” lol so to speak,
