Yo! (Fruit it… Not another '09er)
This is NOT a thread about if keyboards are a viable alternative to sticks, but what I’m asking here is: the few players that use keyboards in fighting games - which one/ones do you prefer?
Personally I think keyboards behave very differently between models - and it’s very easy to end up with a shitty model (be it problems with inputs or just plain crappy layout/keys).
I’ve gone through a lot of different keyboards recently trying to find one that is fit, not only for fighting games (which takes up the majority of my gaming time), but also RTS and FPS, which I still play quite often.
At the moment I’m using one of those “gaming” keyboards with features that nobody gives a shit about, a Razor Arctosa (a scaled down, cheaper variant of Razer Lycosa), except this one doesn’t come with macros nor is it illuminated, instead they supercharged the LED lights in the top right forcing me to PAINT THEM OVER with a permanent marker to dim the light somewhat.
I am not very happy with this keyboard at all - it registers well (according to keytest) but the buttons feel cheap and I dislike the feeling of pushing the buttons (which, on a keyboard, is quite vital).
On the other hand - the keyboard built into my laptop is god tier (an Acer Aspire), but since it’s connected to my external (much bigger…) monitor I’d rather not use it. Just having a go playing some casual matches with said keyboard is what made me realize how crappy my external is in the first place.
What keyboards do you guys recommend?
