I’ve only used a stick for fighting games for a couple of weeks using a stock Hori T5 Anniversary with stock parts. I nodded it with all sanwa parts and also got myself an octogate to try it out and see how it feels.
Here’s the thing, fluid motions like Dragon punches, Half circles, etc are easier to pull off, but charging moves and going from block churching to diagonal forward jump are harder. I’m learning to play with Gouken and Zangief and now Gouken moves come easier but my Zangief is actually worst than before. Now i dont know if i should keep it with toe octogate or go back to squaregate.
I know the octogate has a difference in the distance the joystick has to move to hit the wall of the gate, but, do you get used to it, or is better to just go back to square?
