So I went and bought a tournament legal controller. I bought an Afterglow, I’m loving it, but it has a few glaring problems:
-The controller is a tad smaller than the standard controller, all I have to do is relax my hands and I’m fine though.
- Stick placement is not my personal prefance.
- Umvc3 is mad awkward on this thing, how Fanatiq got used to it is beyond me. (SG feels great on it though.)
-The triggers can be uncomfortable.
My biggest problem is that the control sticks are inwards, like 360, and not outwards like any other controller. So It’s really uncomfortable, and I don’t like the directional buttons, so I was thinking of getting an outwards thumb grip for my controller. I’m not an fps guy, so I’m not sure how useful these things are. What are your experiences with thumb grips? Would they impede my execution? Are they legal for fighting game tournaments? I would’ve asked on an fps forum, but I’m not sure how that would turn out.
