no offense but i can name a a few stick that could need adjustment. I use to work there so I I’m pretty familiar. The time i was working there I would be the only one keeping marvel up to date in switches and all. But since then the switches are bad and whenever I wanted to change switches someone would give me a hard time about it or tell me to use switches that are old. The only time sticks would be replaced is like before a tournament or so. But by then the sticks wouldnt be broken into and everyone would have to readjust. Lets see, marvel 1 sticks left side always remained messed up and you cant move backward and could only go forward. I played that whenever i had a odd token but not anymore, no one seemed to care when i did mention it.
To me it seems the only games worth maintaining was the ones that each attendant personally played. so Basically i covered marvel, tekken, and if someone mentioned a switch off, i always repaired it even when i was off duty. The other attendants most likely covered cvs2, ddr, alpha3 but it was whatever they mostly liked playing.
But even now we are given a hard time if tell them a switch is off or stick needs to be replaced.
as for tekken that has something to do with the board, every now and then the pad doesnt work with the board, but that is a game that is like 50/50 chance of working if using a pad. The joystick was once in a while off and we had to push the plug in for the left joystick to work but it always got loose and was just a waste of time to open up board to push it back in, we usually left screws loose cuzz we knew it might get loose. Card reader usually gets a token or penny stuck in it because of some idiot that thinks you put tokens in there. but thats about it for tekken.
heres my percentage on the fighting games that are maintained.
3rdstrike 90% well maintained, switches are usually replaced every 5 or six months or joysticks replaced every 4 or 5 tournies (when tournies were biweekly)
CVS2 85% (when we did have it) switches well maintained
alpha3 65% (before tilt got it back) usually andrew and me replacing switches back then but got alot of complaints about replacing switches.
MVC2 75% we often got complaints from local marvel players about bad switches or from out of towners, and that game execution is really important and when you compare maas sticks to those and u can do infinite fine then you know your execution is not that bad (ie. notice in some portland tourny videos, portland has alot of ground viper beams in the past. those were because of bad switches.) If outta towners say its bad especially seattle with its good marvel scene then its bad. But I was always given a hard time whenever i wanted to replace switches or tighten the springs, i recall one time a week before a tourny i tightened springs because it was soo lose then it worked fine, that someone replaced the joysticks before the tourny and it was crappy again just because i tightened the springs. We were usually told the sticks are fine and had to live with it.
Mvc 1 no one probably cares about this game but marvel always had issues with joystick. But no one really payed attention.
soul calibur 90% pretty well maintained
vf4 90% well maintained.
jo jo adventure was usually pretty off aand was like 50% maintained.
tekkentag its like 70% maintained
the rest of the other fightings i didnt pay attention to unless someone told me something is wrong with it. Thats my take on it, Thats all folks!!!
