Tournament legality of custom sticks


#1

I’ve been thinking of building a stick with the joystick itself on the right as opposed to the left. Would usage of this be prohibited in tournaments?


#2

Nope.

The only things that would make it bannable in a tournament would be programmable macro buttons or hidden weapons or something. So swiss army stick with blow torch attachment, I’m afraid.


#3

Nope, perfectly fine as long as you don’t put turbo or some kind of “cheat”-like function into the stick itself.


#4

Custom sticks are fine, hidden macro switch for cheating lol… has anyone tried to cheat that way? I’m sure he will get his ass kicked for it in a tournament.


#5

You could show up with a DDR mat or a Rockband Guitar if you really wanted to.


#6

I hear at EVO2k11 they are only going to allow official MadCatz?Tournament Edition Fightsticks.[URL=“http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trademark_symbol”]


#7

What about moving the start and select/back buttons so that you can plink lp in SSFIV?


#8

Can’t imagine why not. There aren’t any banned controler layouts, and back p-linking is in the game. I say go for it.


#9

If back-plinking is seriously picked up and not banned, i’m quitting tournament play.
