Hey everyone, I have a question regarding whether or not it is worth it to use a stick over a pad if you don’t see yourself being anywhere near “pro” level.
I do have a TE stick, and I do like it. I have been playing on it for about a month. Before that, I was strictly pad. I played MvC2 to death, but I was never an amazing player. I would consider myself above average.
I’d love to take the time to become a MvC3 master, but I just can’t do that. I try to spend maybe an hour a day just playing training and arcade, and a couple nights a week I actually get to go online and play people for a few solid hours. To give you guys an idea about my execution skill, I cannot do any of the mission modes that require more than like 8 inputs (not on pad or stick.) And the ones that ask me to call assists, jump cancel and all that? Yeah, I probably can’t do those. Online, I do no fancy combos. I am good at reading the other player and countering with normals, special moves, and simple 4-8 hit combos. I have about 1 combo per character where I can connect a hyper combo from a 4-6 hit chain. That’s it, those are my big moves. Hehe.
I feel like I am still better with the pad, but my fightstick execution has improved. But if I’m not ever going to be an amazing player, and my skill will undoubtedly plateau, is it worth it to keep using the stick? Thank you for any opinions on this.
