The fact that you promote a stick as a ‘Tournament Edition’, despite the fact that I pretty much had to void my warranty to get my stick playable in a tournament scenario is stupid. The fact that I took a MadCatz PCB none-the-less, from a wired pad, and put it in my system and I stopped having RT (roundhouse) die, and stopped getting dropped inputs is even dumber.
None of this is an opinion, this is straight fact.
The fact that to do this, I had to strip 15 tiny screws made out of the softest metal in the world, covered down to the THREADING in red glue to do this is even dumber. And the fact that afterwords, that same red glue that somehow defeats my fucking screwdriver falls off the nut that the bolt uses to hold the faceplate down after I put it back together?
That’s straight up dumb. And I’m not even exaggerating.
This is why, unless you have patience, knowhow, and tolerance for just stupid design, I don’t recommend you buy one of these TE re-hashes until they improve the design. Vote with yo dolla, yo~
