I dont see how you guys can use stick 100% from home in your lap. I grew up in arcades, and i used stick fine in arcades due to how strong they were mounted into the machine. i first bought a home stick in 2004, and i hated it right away due to how it moved around to much. so i decided to stay with pad. but in sf im only 70% with a pad. so i knew i have to make the switch. its just so annoying playing on when im in my bed on laptop. and i just wana lay back and relax.
I just cant do that on a stick like a pad. even when i sit straight up the stick is just different from arcade. its gonna take alot of time probably to get use to. but it is very frustrating at how easy it is to fuck up at times due to a slight bump.
